What a lovely find. Perfect location with on St parking right outside. Hop on a bus for city centre . 3 mins stroll to perfect restaurant 'Bijou'. Lovely glass of sherry waiting for us in very spacious rooms. Fab shower. Great brekkie. Great prices. Hope to be back one day.

This is a wonderful B & B! It's right across from a park and the bus stop is right across the street. Andy, the host, is the best. We extended our stay here because we enjoyed it so much. We would definitely stay again. Dick & Diane Brown Franklin, NC USA

Spent two nights at this B and B in Edinburgh. Slightly out of the way but was able to walk to restaurants and a little further to the castle. Plenty of parking across the street next to a nice park which kept the noise down. Clean and good breakfast. Would stay again

We had a lovely stay at The Sandaig, Leith, this was a great base for sightseeing in Edinburgh, with the added bonus of the bus stop being outside, the number 25 bus taking you into the town centre. The Royal Yacht Britannia was within 15 minute walk of The Sandaig. Staff were very friendly and the breakfasts had a varied... More

We stayed for one night when visiting Edinburgh. We were able to check-in immediately at arrival (we were a bit early and thought of dropping of our luggage, but the room was already available) The host was very friendly and brought our suitcases to the room; where we found lots of coffee, tea, cookies and a small bottle of whiskey....

Myself and my boyfriend stayed a single night at this guest house and were pleasantly surprised. We received an email with instructions and a detailed guide on travelling to and from the guest house via taxi and bus, into the city centre and beachfront, although we didn't necessarily need this, it was a very welcome touch and many people would...

As for the guest house itself well its brilliant, clean, tidy, posh and very homely, you... More

This B&B was a great find in Edinburgh. I was here with my friends for the Fringe festival. Everything was perfect during my stay. The rooms were clean and comfortable, helpful staff. Breakfast in the morning was excellent. Would definitely book here again.

For £140 a night (admittedly during the Fringe) I had far higher hopes for this guesthouse. The photos make the decor look quite tasteful but our room at the top was dark and dingy with a blind in the bathroom that was badly frayed and full of toothpaste splashes, the wall paper was scuffed in several places and the decorative...
