Great location, very clean and tidy, modern rooms with tea and coffee, comfy bed, toiletries fluffy towels and modern decor. Breakfast was also very nice. Highly recommended and excellent value for money when compared to some of the hotels in the same area. Thanks for a lovely stay.

Room Tip: Room 7 was lovely

We stayed at Queens Guest House for three nights on a city trip to Edinburgh and it did not disappoint. The Bedroom was lovely, clean and light with a great shower. The breakfast all three days were spot on with more than enough to choose from and the staff were friendly, approachable and very helpful. We arrived slightly early from our flight but the manager was so helpful to direct us to points of interest while our room was being prepared. It was also helpful to keep our luggage at the hotel before we checked in and after we checked out so we weren't caring everything around the city. There is nothing that can fault this guest house it has a idyllic location close enough to the Main Street and the royal mile yet just far away for a nice stroll and to see more of the City. I would recommend this to anybody who's visiting Edinburgh for the quality, value and overall experience.

Room Tip: Room 10 has a lovely large bay window and the best shower

Came up for the Six Nations. The Queens Guesthouse is a perfect location for bars, restaurants, shops and the Royal Mile, they are all within walking distance.. Waverley Station is a 10-15 minute walk away, Murrayfield Stadium is about a 30 minute walk away. The staff at Queens are very helpful and polite, the guesthouse itself is very comfortable and breakfast is great. Would recommend. Only downside is they have wooden floors so you hear everyone's footsteps as they walk outside the room, maybe a a runner on the floor would help stifle this.

Came here for my girlfriend's bday and it was a great location for accessing Edinburgh's highlights. Also good for restaurants and shopping. Room was spacious, with a particularly big bathroom. Breakfast was lovely and had plenty of choices. Unlike some B&Bs it didn't feel like you were intruding in someone's home.

My husband and I stayed at Queens Guest House for one night. We enjoyed our stay. The service was excellent and found the staff friendly and professional. We enjoyed our breakfast and it was served with friendly smiles. The room was modern, bright and clean with a nice bathroom fitted with an excellent shower. The location is excellent if you are planning like ourselves to attend a show at the Playhouse, or at the Lyceum or Usher Hall as it is situated at a walking distance from all these theatres. We will consider to stay at Queens again in the future and highly recommend this Guest House to anyone.

Went back to Queens Guest House after giving a negative review of the breakfast. I was very impressed by the fact that they took it on board and now buy from Edinburgh's top-notch butchers. Needless to say then that the breakfast was delicious and served with a genuine smile. The staff knew that I had written some less than complimentary comments regarding the food but were completely professional and took it the way it was intended. I can safely say that I will be staying at the Queens on a regular basis from now on. The rooms are spotless, the staff lovely and now the breakfast sets you for the day. I highly recommend this well-situated B&B to anyone who wishes to to stay in Edinburgh for a day or a week - or more. Great place.

I've stayed at this hotel for 2 nights and I must say it was a good option.
The room is good and spacious with a nice toilet, there was some noise between the rooms.
The breakfast was good and the staff was very nice.
The Location is also very good, close to the main areas of the city.
