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...

I was here with my family for the Fringe festival. We were so glad that we picked Sandaig out of all of the guesthouses. The location was great. It is very close to the city centre. There is a bus that takes you directly to Princes Street. The staffs were absolutely friendly and helpful. They helped us with directions and... More

The location is fine if you can enjoy Leith and that area. For central Edinburgh, it is a 15 minute bus away which served us fine. The accommodations are tired and the staff did not maintain the rooms very well. The bathroom door did not have a lock and it often swung open, the food was adequate but not superior.... More

This guest house is not really a 3*, however some areas let it down, so giving it a 4* didn't feel right. The property felt safe and secure, and it was easy to contact the owners to check in, even though they weren't on site. However, this meant we didn't meet the owners throughout our stay, so didn't feel the... More

Having read the 'excellent' reviews and looking at the pictures I expected great things for our stay. Our stay was average. We were allowed into our room before it was cleaned and I was HORRIFIED to be greeted with a horrible, ripped all over, old mattress protector cover that is clearly well hidden from guests under the white sheets. I... More

I stayed for three nights in a very spacious room with nice view over Leith Links. The host was not present when I arrived but I received very detailed and easy to follow instructions (if your English is good). Only downside there was no one to help with the luggage up the stairs. When I met the hosts at breakfast... More

The Sandaig is situated near the Leith and the port on one side with the city centre on the other. Frequent bus services with stops in front of the guest house make it convenient for travel within the city. Friendly service, very clean and tidy, makes for a comfortable and enjoyable stay.
