Would thoroughly recommend a stay at the Auld Reekie after returning from a weekend here. The owner Rhona is a warm and friendly host taking excellent care of her guests. Lovely breakfast cooked to perfection.

First stop on our NC500 trip around the coast of northern Scotland and the Highlands. Beautifully presented property, lovely, quiet and comfortable room. Fantastic breakfast, with a terrific landlady. What's not to like about Auld Reekie? You can walk to the castle in about half an hour or less, there's a great pub (Leslie's Bar) a short walk way with... More

I stayed at the Auld Reekie again a couple of weeks ago in my "usual" room. Since my stay in that room a year ago it has been freshly decorated and looked terrific. There were new toiletries, all luxury Scottish items, in the bathroom; the shower gel was gorgeous. Rhona's welcome was as good as ever and the breakfast is... More

Stayed for New Years and was exactly what we were looking for. A great central location with easy bus routes into the centre. Room was great and breakfast even better. Rhona and Brian looked after us so well, even lent us change for the bus when we didn't have the right money!

From the moment we arrived Rhona greeted us and couldn't do enough to make our stay comfortBle. Breakfasts were hearty and delicious and a great way to sort the day before exploring Edinburgh. Rooms were spotless and comfortable and very conveniently located with buses stopping outside every few moments. A very comfortable stay, thanks Rhona

Travelled up for the Foo Fighters gig at Murrayfield Stadium. Easy to find, short bus trip to the city centre, walking distance really. Spotlessly clean, comfortable beds, decent shower. Good value and the lady that runs it was lovely (checked the bus times for us when we arrived so we could get to the gig as we'd arrived late due... More
