Straven Guest House offers a delightful alternative to the sterile busyness of a hotel when you wish to be in the Edinburgh area. Located in Portobello, it is just a short walk from the sands of Firth of Forth AND a bus stop that will have you in the heart of the city in under fifteen minutes. The rooms are spacious, clean, and attractively decorated with artifacts that Mac & Marion have accumulated over their 18 years as B & B hosts. They are gracious, attentive, have a wealth of information about the area they are willing to share, and are fun! They obviously still enjoy hosting - and are very good at it. The breakfasts choices are varied and delicious. Mac makes his own yogurt and it is the BEST! This is a spot I can unequivocally recommend!
