“Excellent Guest HOuse”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2005

We stayed in a family room for 4 and it was great. Clean and well furnished with a nice ensuite. Breakfast was very prompt and was excellent with pleanty of choice. Would be nice though if it went a little later as its sometimes hard to get kids moving when they are tired after touring around. I would echo the other reviewers comments about finding the area this place is in. It is very confusing following the street names which change so often. Better to follow the street numbers until you are on the A701 and then the owners directions.
Would certainly stay there again if visiting edinburgh.

Many Thanks to our lovely hostess & host!

The Edinburgh Sherwood guest house is centrally located to the royal mile, making it walking distance to Edinburgh's most sought-after sites.

The house is clean, quiet, breakfast served promptly at 8am (if you awaken that early) and your hosts are friendly, thoughtful and down-to-earth.

The only one thing I would have to complain about is that directions getting there are odd. Mapquest, the Road Atlas of Britian, and the House's own directions all vary a bit. Trust your hosts on how to get there. They respond quickly to emails and communicate well. The big deal is (and if you have never been you will not know this) that one street in Edinburgh carries a new name on each block. Minto street is right in the middle of a "Guesthouse area" so it is easy to miss -- don't blink an eye! However, once you do recognize this "guesthouse area" the spot is clearly marked with a big green sign - so you really can't miss it. The neighborhood is safe, with banking, food, drink and music just a block or two away.

Have fun and when you go, tell Susan and David we says "hello!"
