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...

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...

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...

'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...

It was our first visit to Edinburgh. I recommend Clan Walker guest as its such a cosy, comfortable guest house, and from walking distance to the city centre. We enjoyed our stay and will definitelybook again when visiting Edinburgh. Thanks for making us very welcome.
