St Conan's came recommended by family friends and has been our sole guest house since. Clean rooms, comfortable beds, cooked breakfasts, walking distance from the city centre and well-served by bus if you want to relax.

Spotlessly clean, well equipped, delicious breakfast and delightful hosts. The owners could not have been more helpful. Very good value for a central Edinburgh location, with off-street parking. I can't think of anything negative to say about it.

We have stayed at this guest house several times and never been disappointed. The rooms are comfortable and the food is good. Jim is very amiable and informative. There is parking available and I recommend leaving your vehicle there and walking or travelling by bus into the city. We will be back.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back. Our friends were the ones to get the rear room and we slept alright unt...

We stayed three nights to spend hogmanay in Edinburgh. We couldn't have chosen a better place. Jim is a very lovely and friendly host and very helpful. Our room was very pretty with an oriel looking out to the street. It was just so nice to sit in the comfy chairs, have a cup of tea and look out of the window before heading out to discover the city. Breakfast was very rich and tasty. It is very fast and easy to get to the city from there as there are plenty of buses leaving. It isn't far by foot either. If we come back to Edinburgh one day we will definitvely stay here again.

The family room was perfect for us - peaceful, spacious and quiet.
Immense breakfast - try the full scottish at least once :)
Left car for full trip in secure park at back of house. Easy/quick connection into town by bus. We walked back from town a few times through the studenty southside and it took about twenty minutes.
We'll be back - Thanks Jimmy.

Room Tip: Back is quieter.

Myself and my Fiance always look forward to a visit to St Conan's (we've been 3 or 4 times now) - I would recommend a stay here to anyone wanting to visit Edinburgh.

Jimmy the host is always very accommodating and friendly and his full English breakfasts are to die for - and he always has somewhere to recommend for you to go to or do.

Every time we've been the rooms have been clean and fresh, the beds are very comfortable, I think all the rooms are en-suite but I may be wrong with that one (every room we've stayed in have had an en-suite). When you stay at St Conan's it's like staying with family rather than a B&B.

St Conan's is situated far out enough from the City to escape the hustle and bustle, but equally It is close to a bus stop that is only a 5/10 minute ride to the City Centre.

It's always a pleasure to stay at St. Conan's, and we will definitely be returning on our next weekend to Edinburgh.
