I stayed at Emmaus House for two nights when I visited Edinburgh to go to a concert at Usher Hall and had a wonderful stay. The house itself is very clean and comfortable, the location is good, and the prices are fabulous. But it is the hospitality that makes Emmaus House truly special. Janet and Andrew are exceptional hosts, and I also very much enjoyed sharing food and conversation with the other guests around the large meal table. Emmaus House makes a great base for exploring the city and doing all of the usual tourist things, and Janet and Andrew can definitely help with that aspect of a visit. But it would also be a lovely place to spend a few days just taking a break from it all to read, write, reflect, and so on. The Christian spirituality that underlies Emmaus House is low-key: definitely available if you want to participate, but not even remotely pushed at you if you don’t. It’s very clear that people of any faith tradition, or none, are all equally welcome. Unconditionally recommended!
