Came here with my partner as a last minute change from a hotel in the city centre as we saw the good reviews. We were given a newly refurbished room with garden view. Bed was super comfy , passed out after a long drive from the highlands. Mirela who checked us in was very friendly and accommodating (her breakfast was fab also) she gave us recommendations for what to do in edingburgh. At the weekend Ollie (who’s breakfast was on par with Mirelas) welcomed us and made us feel at home. My partner who moans about EVERYTHING has said we will 100% be returning. Lovely wee place with a decanter of sherry in the room (thanks for the morning after headache). You’ve all been fab ❤️❤️

Beautiful old town house, conveniently located. Top notch facilities and hosting. Breakfast a real highlight with everyone well catered for! We had a cooked breakfast in our first day and didn't eat again until the evening. We really hope to return. Proper Scottish hospitality.

Lovely hosts, beautiful room with a lovely garden view. Atmosphere is chilled and the breakfast was ace. Make sure you get some whisky with it! Mirela was an absolute gem and we will hopefully return to try another room in the future!

Stayed with friends for 4 nights and received a warm welcome from Ollie and Mirela. Accommodation was excellent and most of the rooms had been recently renovated to a high standard. All rooms had complimentary sherry and Prosecco , tea facilities and biscuits. Breakfast was served downstairs (pre ordered the evening before) excellent choices and all cooked fresh. My husband thoroughly enjoyed the porridge (honey, double cream and whisky!) Ollie and Mirela very friendly and excellent hosts, nothing too much trouble. Would I recommend Ben Cruachan Guest House, definitely. We are hoping to go again next year.
