Thoroughly enjoyed my stay in a gorgeous room with private bathroom. Home from home. Gill is a fantastic host, many thanks for your delicious brekky - aided by your singing buddy serving the fare. Would recommend the King of Kippers, but make sure you put your order in. LOVE Edinburgh and will DEFO be back. Xx

I chose the Bonnington guest house Leith due to the reviews I had seen, and we were not disappointed, a rare plus was the private car park at the back, the park right next to it with excellent walks to Ocean Terminal and down into Edinburgh itself. Our room on the top floor was spacious and well furnished. The bed... More

We stayed over the Easter bank holiday weekend in the top floor room which was very clean and cosy. The bed was very comfy, there was a beautiful view of the park filled with daffodils and there was even a decanter of complimentary sherry! The location was great with a bus stop very close with regular buses to town. Ian... More

We had an enjoyable two nights at the Bonnington Guest House. The hostess was very welcoming and provided us with lots of help and suggestions about dining, sight seeing and transportation. The room was spacious, clean and nicely decorated. Breakfast was plentiful too. We'd go back.

We had the bedroom with the private bathroom located across the landing. The room it's self was very big and you get some sherry in the room which is a lovely touch. The owner of the B&B is very friendly and welcoming giving us information about the local area and the transport services. There is a bus stop just across... More

Comfortable and quiet b&b; easy bus ride from the centre of Edinburgh or a 40 minute walk through the park pathways. Pleasant breakfast (standard fare), friendly people. "Private Bathroom" is not en suite but across the landing - managed to dodge other guests while in towel but a few close calls! Wifi free - ok for emails but not strong... More
