We stayed here for a long weekend at the end of October.
We flew from London and arrived around 9am, hoping to just leave our luggage then come back.
Morag offered us tea and toast and put our luggage in our room once it had been cleaned, a lovely touch!
The b and b is very central and walking distance from virtually everything we wished to visit.It's on a quiet side road so not noisy at night.The room was spacious and spotlessly clean, tea and coffee making facilities replenished regularly.A nice breakfast, particularly the pastries!
Morag was on hand to tell us how to get to places and offer advice.
If you're looking for a b and b in Edinburgh, look no further !

Very tidy and clean rooms. The breakfast leaves no wish unanswered. It s a superb location right in the heart of Edinburgh. The owners are really helpful, friendly and generous. The first night I spend in a room with poor wi-fi connection. Right the next day it was possible to switch the room. My luggage arrived with one day delay and they helped me out with an adapter. Really nice persons. You feel instantely at ease at the Edinburgh Central Guest House. I highly recommend it.

Best b&b I've ever stayed in. Host warm and nothing was too much trouble. Real attention to detail. Very clean and tidy. breakfast very good, as much toast and tea as you want. No cooked option but huge choice of pastries, fruit, yoghurt and other stuff. Great location,all the attractions within walking distance.

My husband and I stayed here three nights and thought everything was great. Our room was plenty big (except the shower is tiny, even for us normal sized people), the location made it easy for us to walk anywhere we wanted in the city, and the breakfast had nice variety (meats, cheeses, egg salad, fruit, cereal, pastries, toast...).

Many thanks for the great review of our guest house. Our location is very central for all attractions and plenty of choice for the continental breakfast.
I have taken note of the comments with the ensuite shower and may have to change this in the near future.
Once again I would like to thank you for posting this review

The hotel is very nice, it doesnt feel like staying at a hotel, but in a nice house, very clean, very nice decorations. The rooms are large, they have nice vintage furniture and comfortable beds, bathroom clean, large, with everything you need.
Breakfast is very good, continental. Morgan is very friendly and nice, and she helped me with taxi, tour bookings, etc. Its pretty close to city center, you walk two streets and get to Princess street. You have plenty pubs and shops in the area, hard rock cafe is very close. Its a very good place to stay for tourists, I recommend it.

Hopefully , we will see you again soon

(1) Very friendly exchange of e-mails with the owners (as my time of arrival fluctuated)
(2) Very easy system to arrive and leave (unlike hotels with formal reception procedures)
(3) Free wifi (not that common in the UK)
(4) Good breakfast included
(5) Very friendly Morag (with her delicious Scottish accent!)
