Very cozy and well decorated guest house in a calm and quiet location with a bus stop just in front of the door. The lady was adorable she knows all the guests by name and helped us with finding right tours and restaurants around. She is preparing the best breakfast every day for her guests and believe me she has... More

Both Rowena and Tom are the perfect hosts. The location has convenient access to the center of Edinburgh and to the excellent restaurants in nearby suburban Leith. The accommodations are quiet and spotless. The breakfast is amazing and the knowledge and advice from both hosts is spot on. The Sheridan Guest House is a true diamond.

Next time we are in Edinburgh we will definitely be staying here again! Rowena is lovely nothing is too much trouble, I don't know where she gets the time to do everything she does, from the homemade cookies and preserves to the lovely garden and wonderful house, so much choice for breakfast and all locally sourced!

Lovely guest house, awesome food, and a lovely hostess...located very close to old town...walking, driving, or taking the bus are all very convenient...Port of Leith is also a short walk away...tasty seafood abounds...will simply never consider staying anywhere else when in Edinburgh. Thanks to Roweena and family for making our visit special :)

What a fabulous guest house this is. Rowena is one of the nicest people you will ever meet, she is so happy and smiley and cannot do enough for you. The guest house itself is spotless, we stayed in room No 2 which was absolutely lovely. There were some really nice touches with homemade cookies on the drinks tray and... More

Rowena was a fantastic hostess for our stay! She was really helpful and had no problem letting us put our luggage in our room even though it was not ready because of our early arrival time. The building is very clean and neat and the room we had was excellent with a very comfortable bed. Breakfast was perfect and there... More

The minute you enter the Sheridan's front gate it strikes you how immaculate the garden is kept. This theme carries on throughout the guest house. Everywhere is spotlessly clean and smartly decorated. A warm welcome from Rowena awaits you with hospitality that is attentive without being intrusive. Everything we read about the food on TA was spot on and a... More

What an amazing find ! On arrival there was a pretty garden with sweet smelling plants around the entrance. Rowena was so welcoming and is always smiling; it's a real joy to find a host who loves making her guests happy and it shows in everything about this guest house. It has beautiful decor and artwork throughout. The room was... More

If you're visiting Edinburgh and wondering where to stay, your search can stop here - Rowena (and Tom) run a fabulous guest house that, as other reviewers have pointed out, feels like a home away from home. Breakfast is absolutely delicious each morning, and I found the location (a bus ride away from the center of the city) to be... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
An elegant Georgian house restored in a contemporary style while retaining the unique character of the building. Original artworks hang on the walls, Persian carpets provide a rich backdrop to the contemporary furniture and the food is always freshly home cooked and delicious.

It is just a short walk away from The Royal Yacht Britannia, Playhouse Theatre, and the Botanic Gardens, while the excellent sights, restaurants and bars of Edinburgh City Centre are just a short bus or taxi ride away. ... more   less
