I had 4 days in Edinburgh at the end of my long holiday and booked in at Canadale. I'm glad I did. Catherine is very welcoming and friendly host. The house itself is an old Victorian so the rooms are small and the floor is creaky, but it is clean, comfortable and cosy. Breakfasts are good, and because a few... More

This is a fabulous guesthouse - Lovely owner who was really helpful, delicious breakfast and the rooms are lovely and comfortable. There's a bus right outside the guesthouse so getting around couldn't be easy. Highly recommended!

We had a room on the top floor with our own bathroom. Very comfortable and it included the facilities you need; comfy beds, water cooker and nice bathroom. Excellent freshly made breakfast! Not necessarily negative but to keep in mind; 1) guest house is remote from city centre. But we took a black cab for GBP 5.50 so that is... More

Stayed at the Canadale Guest House recently with my partner... We was very grateful that we was allowed to have our room earlier than 4pm.... I booked the room through booking.com. On the booking email it said we was having the ground floor. Upon arrival, we was informed that we was actually on the top floor... Not a problem but... More

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

Craigmoss, Owner at Canadale Guest House, responded to this review

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.
