The breakfasts consisted or lovely fresh fruit, some cheese and meats, yogurts and juices. Exactly my style. Our room was quite large with comfy beds, large... More

After a recent noisy and disastrous stay in London before the London marathon, I opted for the quieter area of Leith to stay at before the Edinburgh marathon and to relax in the city for a couple of days afterwards. Swan Lake Guest House was quiet, quirky (80's decor bedroom but a recently refurbished bathroom). The lady of the house... More

Disappointed in the de luxe room as while it was clean, it had basic unmatched furniture and decoration. Bathroom has been built into a corner. Large TV and free wiFi. Nice hospitality tray with tea coffee and chocolates. Off road parking is a tight squeeze. Hosts were very friendly and helpful On bus route to city

Su & Bryan are great hosts giving a very warm welcome and helpful advice. Our room was spacious and clean and en suite bathroom good. We had our own tea/coffee facilities, chocolates, large TV. This guest house is in a good location with bus stop outside or only a short distance to tourist buses or walking distance to shops. Breakfast... More

We chose this place as it had off-street parking, good bus services to the city centre, walking distance to Britannia, and Leith seemed a good choice. And it was indeed. Sue and her husband (sorry, forgotten his name) are delightful people and wonderful hosts. Sue met us on arrival and had a huge array of maps and information ready for... More

The Swan Lake is a wonderful B&B and the Land Lady is super nice! During your stay you will enjoy a large and very tidy room (our was number 5 on the first floor) with TV, wi-fi and your own kettle. At breakfast you'll be served juices, yoghurt, cereals, toast and an impressive variety of fresh fruit (from raspberries to... More

Clean big rooms but far away from this being a hotel. This is bed and breakfast or hostel. Breakfast is basic. It is very far from the center and there is just couple of basic shops nearby. I would not recommend this hoStel for romantic trip.

Situated at the Leith end of Ferry Road, the Guest House offers good budget accomodation with ensuite shower and toilet. The owners are helpful and very friendly offering lots of useful information for the tourist. Parking is very limited and involves swapping cars around to let other guests out but ee found street parking close by. Access to the city... More

Stayed here a couple nights on our honeymoon and it was a very pleasant stay. We were greeted by the hosts who provided all sorts of maps and information regarding the city. The location is right on three bus lines that go to City Centre every 10 minutes or so. The Britannia is only a 10-15 minute walk and there... More

The B&B is a little out of City Centre, in Leith but only 15 mins on a frequent bus route so good access. The Owners were incredibly welcoming, friendly, helpful and sweet. English is their 2nd language but they are happy to chat away and offer advice from public transport to local restaurants. The accommodation is basic but good value... More
