Unbelievable stay with Vivienne at the Sherwood. It's white glove clean with all the amenities one could ask for. Close to the Royal Mile, bus line is steps away, and lots of wonderful places to eat locally. Will absolutely be back, and would give her 100 stars if I could!

Fabulous B&B! The location is perfect with a 20 minute walk to the Queen's mile. Vivienne has provided each room with a detailed guide to great restaurants, sights, museums, bus schedules and where to go if a medical emergency...excellent detail. Exceptionally clean and comfortable. Her breakfast spread was awesome... fresh fruit, pastries, cereal, yogurt and more. Will definitely return and highly recommend. Kudos to you Vivienne!!!

Room tip: very comfortable beds, spotless rooms; clean bathrooms

What a find, this place is awesome. Vivienne is a wonderful host. She is very charming, welcoming and helpful. The location is absolutely perfect, a quick and pleasant 20-30 minute walk to the old town. Vivienne prepares an awesome breakfast for her guests and it is a great way to start your day. We would recommend this Guest House to anyone wishing to have a pleasant stay in Edinburgh. Thanks Vivienne we really enjoyed meeting you and staying at your guest house. It really made a difference to our 5 night stay in Edinburgh. Cheers!

It is impossible not to recommend a stay with Vivienne at Sherwood Guest House. Perfect location for walking to the tourist attractions. Very nice interior, spacious and clean, wonderfull breakfast, and the most helpful and humorous hostess, Vivienne. We really enjoyed our stay and would not hesitate to stay here again.

Room tip: Spacious, clean, calm, nice interior and a very nice bathroom too.
