Felt really welcomed at Claymore, she couldn't do enough for us, finding out info and booklets for us regarding where o go and what to eat. The room was large, tastefully decorated, clean linen and cleaned to a high standard. The toilet and shower were spotless, put my own bathroom at home to shame, so I felt very comfortable using...

Cathy, the owner, made us feel very welcome and was always happy to help. The rooms were clean and we had a quality nights sleep. Lovely decor and great... More

Wonderful place. Cosy, warm,welcoming and a real treat to have the option of well cooked vegan food.Proper bed with cotton bedding and Ethical toiletries instead of wasteful chemically smelling sachets of useless preparations! Above all very friendly and homely. would definitely use this as a future place to stay when visiting Edinburgh

We had a perfect stay at the B&B.. It was clean, very nice rooms.The breakfast was delicious. The landlady was very nice and helpful and sweet. She recommended gardens and other things to do for us. It was walking distant to the centre.

The Claymore is a perfect, relaxing place to spend time while visiting Edinburgh. Cathy’s delicious breakfasts, which have many tasty vegan options, definitely helped dispel our jet lag. We probably tried all of the vegan options on the menu, from the polenta to the tattie scone to the porridge and the cooked tomatoes and potatoes and the delicious soya yoghurts... More

We loved our stay at Claymore Vegetarain Guest House! It was our favorite of all the places we stayed on our recent 3 week trip. We spent 7 nights there. Cathy was so sweet and accommodating!!! Some mornings we had to leave early to catch a tour and therefore miss breakfast, so she prepared us something to take with us.... More

A variety of teas and coffees are available in the rooms and fresh milk provided.Often rather tempting snacks are placed in the mugs in the bedrooms too! Breakfasts are... More

Can't fault our stay. Rooms & food were excellent. Fantastic friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Close enough to city centre for fringe. Great hosts with good knowledge of Edinburgh. Would recommend to anyone and would definitely stay again next time in Edinburgh. In fact we wouldn't stay anywhere else.

We are a 10-15 minute walk to Princes Street. We offer three things to our guests - enjoyable accommodation, warm and friendly atmosphere and good food and we do it with pleasure. Although our food is vegetarian and vegan, we have had many meat eating guests over the years and most of them have gone home happy! We welcome every kind of people and look forward to welcoming you. ... more   less
