Booked at very last minute as we had been let down on another property. Cannot fault it. Great prices, fabulous breakfast (try the brown bread toast nom nom). Lorraine just treats you like she has known you for ever. We will definitely be back.

This was my second time in Edinburgh and the Pearl View Guest House was so good the first time, that I stayed here again on my second visit. Free all day parking outside on the street, and with a sign that is clearly visible from the road (unlike most B+Bs in the UK). Right on the waterfront, with lovely views... More

Lorraine is a perfect host. Welcoming and friendly. Our room was spacious and comfortable with seating and a tea tray in the bay window where we could sit and enjoy a cuppa and look out to sea. Lovely breakfast served on nice hot plates. Homemade bread and homemade preserves. A really nice place to stay with free parking in the... More

This would have been a 5, apart from the fact that there was a mistake with the booking which meant we had to move rooms. Other than that we had a lovely stay. Lorraine makes you feel at home and the key things, a comfortable bed and a great breakfast were excellent. Ideal for visiting Edinburgh and a lovely view... More

Lorraine's Guest House was a wonderful way to start our UK adventure. Wonderful sunrise and sunsets over the ocean view and yet a easy and pretty bus ride into Edinburg. Double decker bus ran about every 10 minutes with the stop almost infront of her house to the center of Edinburg in about 20 minutes (digital display of time between... More
