We stayed in the smallest double room in the B & B and although it was cosy it was adequate for our needs. The bathroom was modern and clean and the room itself was very comfortable with great views of Arthur's Seat. Breakfast was also good with a great selection to choose from and the chance to try haggis.

Spotlessly clean and extremely comfortable- everything you need for a weekend base. The owners were really flexible and helpful accommodating our late arrival. The breakfast choices were great and everything was delicious - especially the porridge. Would happily recommend Clan Walker to anyone

While looking for a reasonable hotel in Edinburgh we came across the Clan Walker on Tripadvisor. We stayed for 3 nights and were very happy with our room. Do ask for a room on the side or back of the house as it's on a busy 4 lane road that leads into Edinburgh. If you don't like road noise you... More

A friend and I stayed in a triple room this weekend, we were delighted as good value for 2, £90 per night, room was huge with a lovely bathroom, room 3. Great location a bit out of centre, near Arthurs seat and Commonwealth pool, but really easy to get the bus to and from town. Breakfast was ideal, we didnt... More

My wife, brother-in-law, and myself did a last minute, 3 night excursion into Edinburg, only to find out that some special Highland activities booked up the hotels and most B&B's during our timeframe. We were recommended to try Lorna and Doug at the Clan Walker, and do not have any regrets. Quiet, friendly, and comfy. We got the only room... More

Stayed 3 nights at the Clan Walker guest house and it was lovely. Large room with all the amenities, and great view of the city. A 30 minute walk into the city centre or a number of buses, with the bus stop right outside the guesthouse. The breakfast was delicious and plentiful, and the member of staff serving the breakfast...

Stayed here for two nights and could have stayed longer. The rooms where comfortable, clean and peaceful the staff where all very nice and the English breakfast was lovley. And it is not overpriced like a lot of places in Edinburgh. Would certainly stay here again.

We stayed in the family room. It was very comfortable. Lorna allowed us to come in early as the room was ready so we didn't have to keep our luggage with us as we explored the city on the first day. Breakfast in the morning was prompt and delicious! Very convenient location. Super close to bus stops and an easy... More

'I was very impressed with Clan Walker, the friendliness of the staff, the cleanliness of the place, the breakfast and the room in general. It was excellently situated for my stay, with parking available and a bus stop only a few yards away. Only slight criticism was that the bed was a little soft. I would definitely use Clan Walker...

I was in between work meetings in Europe and took myself to Edinburgh for the weekend. I wanted a reasonably priced, safe, quiet place to stay within walking distance of the city. Clan Walker was perfect. My room (#1) was surprisingly large and the en suite bathroom surprisingly modern and clean. The location is great - a 10 minute walk... More
