Viv runs a very nice B&B. Spacious & clean rooms, as well as a nice breakfast. Bus stop right out the front. Viv provides great information on the places to see, eat and shop in edinburgh. Close to the old Bell pub that has great meals. Very well located B&B

This is my fourth trip to Edinburgh and my second stay at the Sherwood Guest House. It's a wonderful B&B and Vivienne is just fantastic. The Sherwood has undergone a partial renovation (part two is due in January 2017) and the look and feel is just terrific. So much better than before. I tried out nearly all the restaurant recommendations...

We had a very good continental breakfast, every day with fresh fruits, a nice and clean room eben with microwave, we warmly welcomed and all that within just a short walking distance (15-20 min) to the centre! Arthur's seat with a great view over the city can be reached within 10 min, a swimming hall close by, a few pubs...

Miss Vivienne and the Sherwood will forever remain one of my most treasured memories of Edinburgh. This guest house was a home away from home, welcoming, clean, cozy and excellent breakfast. There were four of us from Cape Breton, Nova Scotia who had booked online with Miss Vivienne, she was very quick to respond to any questions we had prior...

The B&B was much nicer in person, very modern, cute and clean. The location was great, just had to walk up the road to get to the Royal Mile. Vivienne was great! Very friendly and accommodating to our diets. So glad we found this place :)

We had the immense pleasure of staying with Vivienne for two nights while in Edinburgh. She is a great character and wonderful knowledge about her city, and her guest house is top notch. Everything about our stay was fantastic, from the wonderful large room to perfect breakfast served in the morning. This location is just outside the city centre, but...
