The whole house had a weird smell to it, and our room was badly in need of repair to the bathroom as you could smell the mold just walking into it. The air was dank and thick and smelled like a dirt basement - and the fan didn't work at all. I pulled back the curtains and a cloud of... More

I have stayed and continue to stay at Canadale quite frequently for business. Lovely guest house, nice rooms, friendly staff and owner and great breakfast service. Ideal place. 2 minute walk from Leith Walk which hosts various bars/restaurants and shops. Highly recommended.

We stayed at Canadale Guest House for two nights. Our room was on the top floor with ensuite and it was cosy, clean and quiet. The location of the guest house is great, just a short walk from the train station, with many pubs and restaurants nearby and a bus stop right across the road. What I enjoyed mostly was... More

I had a wonderful stay at the Craigmoss Guest House recently. I actually stayed in two different rooms (left for a few days and then came back), and both were lovely, clean, and comfortable. The breakfast each morning was both delicious and plentiful (I tried both the traditional Scottish breakfast and the porridge). The hosts were friendly and helpful. The... More

I have been in this business for 15 years and why if guests are unhappy with something in the guest house they don't say at the time. How does this happen to a minority of guests when all our other visitors say quite the opposite, we are only too happy to deal with any issues people have. It is a... More

We stayed here for a bank holiday weekend - the location is great, 20 mins walk from the centre, or a short bus ride, and the owners were friendly and helpful. We had the room on the ground floor and didn't have any of the issues with noise that another reviewer did. Breakfast was great.

We made this our base for our stay in Edinburgh. We received a really warm welcome and were instantly made to feel very comfortable. Our room was perfect for us, and had everything we needed. It is only a short walk into town and was really easy to find. The beds were so comfortable, my friend was keen to take... More

My mum and I came to Craigmoss guest house as we were visiting my twin sister who lives close by. The owners were very welcoming and they were very helpful in answering questions. It was very handy having a bus stop right across the road and having been born in Edinburgh and living here for quite a few years, we... More

Bit dicey the stairs the stairs curved 38 of them. Landlord kindly suggested leave our big cases downstairs as only booked in for 2 nights. Very comfortable room. Good well cooked breakfast. Well presented. Agree very handy to buses.

While the owner is quite nice and friendly, our room was unsanitary (dirty bathroom, particularly the shower, including hair on the walls, probably from previous visitors), and unfortunately no improvement after having signalled it. If you absolutely have to book a room here, make sure you don't get the ground floor room - very noisy and no intimacy, with the... More
