the only problem with the stay was the size of the shower, very small. wouldn't hesitate to stay there again. the staff were very friendly and helpful, well cooked breakfast, with a good variation and presentation. held a parking spot for ourselves. they moved their own car to accommodate ours.

Enjoyed a 3 night stay at this small and friendly guest house. Location was quite good, being around 15mins walk to the centre and close to many restaurants, the Playhouse, etc. Our room was lovely, quiet, spotlessly clean and had everything one could possibly need, i.e. lots of little extras that one would normally only get in larger hotels, i.e....

The room was very big. And very cleaned. Everything thing is there in the room like hot water bag, mini fridge etc. the service was also good. But according to B&B it's very costly. Washroom was also very big. We don't have breakfast there beaches we have to check out early in the morning. So she kept so many things... More

Just 10 minutes walk from city centre is this lovely little guest house. Staff were very friendly and happy to help, order breakfast the night before and it's cooked fresh when you appear in the dinning area. As a solo traveller I was made to feel welcome and at ease.

The guest house has a fantastic amount of character and the host has clearly thought about the smaller details to make your stay comfortable, such as the addition of toiletries, water and sweets in the room. Breakfast was lovely, having ordered the night before there was a small time to wait before you could eat, it was beautifully presented and... More

Open all year round, Edinburgh House is a small mother and daughter run guest house in a traditional tenement building only a short walk to city centre attractions like Princes Street, Calton Hill, The Royal Mile, Holyrood Palace and Edinburgh Castle.
