It is a very nice hotel. The room is huge and very beautiful, beds are comfortable and the staff is very nice. City center is just a 20 minute walk away. But there was no WC in the room and we had to share it. It wasn't such a bad thing, though, as people were very kind. I totally recommend... More

Beautiful victorian house. We had a lovely room at the top, nice comfortable beds and clean room. The owner was extra nice and showed us what we should see and where we can grab a bite to eat. All his recommendationd were great. The location is ok, 20 minute walk to the city center and probably much quicker with a... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in June. We got in extremely late but the owners gave us easy self-checkin instructions so that we could get right to bed. The room was spacious for European standards. The beds were extremely comfy! We had a shared toilet on the floor, but the shower was one floor lower and shared by two... More

I've just spent the weekend here with my friend and I'd highly recommend this lovely guest house. We were at a hen party and came in late both nights (quietly and considerately of course) so all we needed was a place to rest our heads. The beds were incredibly comfortable and the room was spacious and stylish. We had tea... More

I stayed for a 4 day break with a friend. The guest house is close enough to Edinburgh centre to be convenient, yet far enough away to be peaceful. Kim and Andy are wonderful hosts being friendly and helpful, taking time to give lots of advice about the best things to see an do while away. They were never too... More

We had a lovely experience whilst staying at the Clarin Guest House, the lady of the house was very helpful with transport and showed us maps etc which helped us massively whilst staying in Edinburgh. She even took me to the local shop for snacks as we arrived late and didn't have time to call at a shop on the... More

My friend Julia and I stayed for two nights at this lovely place. We really enjoyed our room with own bathroom and very comfy beds. The Clarin Guest House might be about 30 Minutes walking distance away from the City Centre but it was worth the way! Kim was very welcoming on arrival and even upgraded us (Thank you so... More

Don't let it's distance from Old Town concern you. This is nicely out of the fray of the city center, and still very accessible to it by Edinburgh's awesome bus system, or by a 25 minute walk on a nice day. The hosts were helpful and most let us keep to ourselves, and while the walls did seem a bit... More

Stayed here for a couple of nights during storm " Desmond" but having previously lived in Scotland for 24 years it did't dampen our spirits! The Clarin is a room only guest house, the room we stayed in had it's own on suite, it was beautifully decorated very clean and comfortable and very warm. It is a leisurely 30 minute... More
