Culane House Hotel
Ranked #141 of 394 Edinburgh B&B and Inns
Reviewed May 20, 2013

We stayed in this lovely B&B for 2 nights and were more than happy with our choice. The room had everything we needed(hot water, ipod dock, welcome tray), the staff were pleasant and polite, the location and the breakfast were great too. The free parking is a bonus and there is also a very convenient bus stop right outside the hotel with very frequent buses direct to Central Edinburgh.

If you do not feel like going to the centre, there are also good places to eat close by.

Overall, loved this little guesthouse and definitely value for money!

My husband and I were greeted on arrival by Sinitta, where check in early was of no problem. Sinitta introduced herself and the friendliness oozed out of her and her family and staff. We were shown to our room (7) on the top floor which was roomy, immaculately clean with a beautiful view overlooking the park and the cherry blossom trees. Parking was freely available on the tree lined avenue, vehicles were safe and it was free. The bus stop outside the property meant on number 12 or 25 bus at a cost of £1.50 you were in the Princes Street area of Edinburgh within 10 mins.

The service was impeccable, a young gentleman (son?) went to great lengths to help out with advice on buses and anything else we enquired about.

In my room was a box of chocolates as this Hotel recognised it was a birthday booking.

Breakfast next morning consisted of a help yourself style continental fayre with tea/coffee cereals, pastries etc, and breakfast orders of hot cooked english style breakfast were taken from the table and served hot, tasty and plentiful.

Checkout was as smooth as check in and I would have no hesitation in recommending this delightful small Hotel (9 rooms) to anyone wanting a good quality Bed and Breakfast style of accommodation. We paid £60 for a "superior room" including breakfast.

Our stay was a very enjoyable one.

The only point for the owners benefit I would make, the usual practice of the hotel is to request room keys are left behind when going out for the day. I myself did not do this, never have, never will, and it was not an issue. However the practice of having no outside door key and having to buzz to be let in, albeit it is a 24 hour reception and someone was always there, was a little odd im my opinion.

But I would most definately choose this establishment again if staying in central Edinburgh for a sightseeing visit. Reasonably priced, excellent accommodation with hosts where nothing is too much trouble

Room Tip: There is NO lift, the top floor rooms do take your breath away when climbing so choose a low room if...

I stayed at the Culane House Hotel for 3 nights and I very much enjoyed my stay there. The hosts where very welcoming and helpful and went out of their way to help me with all the questions I had about the area. The rooms where very clean and comfortable to sleep in. I also enjoyed the nice variety of food they provided. It is situated in a very nice area of Edinburgh that was only a few minutes from the city centre. I would definitely stay there again. Highly recommended.

Culane House Hotel states their two double rooms "Can accommodate 2 persons sleeping in a double bed". Well, forget about this when you're put in room #2. You have to be of midget size, both in terms of the size of the bed as well as the space around it in the room. And be sure to arrive on handluggage since anything else will not fit if you don't want to block the exit. The other nice thing about it is its location at the bottom of the stairs up to most of the other rooms and right next to the reception counter. Be prepared to enjoy the nightcrawlers stumbling up to their rooms and the early risers checking out.
On the brighter side, the staff is most friendly and attentive. Still, we will avoid the risk of getting room #2 again by not returning. 

Room Tip: Rooms on upper floors, not #1 or #2

Very friendly and helpful staff, ready to answer all questions and giving tipps to eat out. Also, we were able to downgrade from a three-bed room to a cheaper twin room on short notice.
Nice, comfortable and clean rooms.
Flexible with breakfast times when you have to leave early in the morning, but looking at the price I would have expected more from the breakfast buffet, than processed cheese slices and pre-packaged pastries. The cooked breakfast was very good though.
