Well run by Vivienne who looked after us very well, lots of local information available. Bus stop a few yards down the road so no need to drive. Restaurants and pubs nearby. Our room was small but comfortable and had everything we needed.

I would and I will recommend this place to anyone who wants to stay in Edinburgh! Very good location, about 25 minute walk to the City Centre or if you don't want to walk there's a bus stop right outside the house. Love the newly decorated areas like the breakfast room. Very well equipped rooms and the beds are very... More

There is nothing that can be improved upon here. Our double room on the ground floor was very spacious and light. There was a fridge, microwave, decent hairdryer, good towels and face flannel, quality shampoo and conditioner and bed was made up each day. Location was perfect with bus into the city just down the road. Beautiful breakfast room with... More

Brilliant little hotel, owner Vivienne very friendly, rooms well presented with everything you need, including microwave, iron, tea and coffee making facilities.

The Sherwood Guest House more than met our expectations. We had a spacious room in the back of the house with a large window overlooking the beautiful garden. The house itself is quite charming and what one would expect to find in the UK. Because of its location, the room was very quiet. Vivienne has thought of everything a guest... More

We were gleefully welcomed by our proprietor, Vivienne at 11pm, well past her normal check-in time. That was a delight in itself! She has lived in Edinburgh her whole life so she is a wealth of information regarding things to do, places to go and sites to see. Truthfully, you can't do Edinburgh wrong. It is a lovely lovely city.... More

A perfect place to stay. Clean and tidy room, love the atmosphere, breakfast was great. We will be back for sure. The right place to stay when you go to Edinburgh. Busses right outside, or just walk into the city centre. No problem. Perfect landlady :-) I give this place my best recommadation :)
