Stayed here for three nights in August. Good location on a direct bus route to the Royal Mile, with some great restaurants, walkable from the B&B. Vivienne was very helpful with information about the buses and restaurants. The breakfast was plentiful, but not a cooked breakfast if you are looking for that. Good choice for our stay overall.The bathroom and... More

We booked this hotel for a long weekend for the Edinburgh marathon this year, and found it was one of the only places not super expensive for those dates. It was easy to find, a bit of a walk from the centre, but not too far (even after the marathon!). We were greeted by the owner, who was very friendly... More

We stayed at the Sherwood Guest House for three nights at the start of a trip to Scotland. Vivienne is a gracious host and helped us a lot with restaurant recommendations and advice regarding restaurants. Breakfast was very good, with a selection of cereals, cold cuts, vegetables, cheeses, yogurts, hard-boiled eggs, etc. We had a room on the front of... More

We stayed 5 nights at the Sherwood Guest house. Vivenne was a wonderful host. Full of knowledge and information. She was kind and welcoming. Loved joking around. My husband asked for mustard with breakfast. She laughed and went to her home to get it for him and it was waiting every morning after that. Breakfast was so good and plentiful.... More

We stayed here for three nights (father visiting his daughter studying in Scotland). It was simply great. Vivienne is one of a kind, very friendly, very helpful, with a marvelous sense of humor. The rooms were spotless, but not sterile like some hotel rooms. The breakfast, although continental, was generous. Vivienne immediately repaired the lamp we broke and even helped... More

We stayed for three nights and couldn't fault it. Had a separate private bathroom which, though small, was nicely done up. Breakfast was really nice. Vivienne was really helpful with directions and ideas on what to do. Definitely have a read of the book she provides as it does have some very useful tips. Will be returning here next time... More

A group of six of us stayed in two rooms (three people per room) for two nights at end of our long road trip through Scotland. First off the owner, Vivienne, was very responsive via email and helpful in time leading up to our stay. Secondly, the continental breakfast was excellent. Not just rolls and cereal but full selection of... More

Thank you so much for your wonderful review and can I say what a pleasure it was to meet you and your family and friends. I should perhaps explain the 'how to flush' system as I know the UK systems are very different! Vivienne More

We found this little gem on Hotels.com. Out of all the B&B's we feel so lucky to have stayed at this one. Vivienne was a wealth of knowledge. My husband wanted mustard with his breakfast and she went to her own refrigerator to get it. She went above and beyond for us. The B&B was charming a bit away from... More
