David who owns and runs The Conifers is a wonderful host. Very helpful on information about Edinburgh. Very good vegetarian breakfast. Spotlessly clean place. Only 20 minute walk into the centre. Could not have asked for more. We had such a good time in Edinburgh that we have decided to go back and will stay at the Conifers again

We only stayed one night but all in all the standard was very high. The property was very clean, the breakfast excellent and was situated an easy walk into the city centre. The next time we are visiting Edinburgh we will certainly be staying at the Conifers.

We arrived at this hotel for a girly weekend away and was welcomed with a warm reception and a very Christmassy front room which definitely got us in the Christmas spirit. The location is superb, walking distance from the centre, or alternatively a cheap bus/taxi fare away. The room was big and had a double bed and a single bed.... More
