Reviewed July 31, 2011

We stayed for a long weekend break in late June. We chose this hotel because of the good comments on TA and we were not disappointed - we agree with everything posted about this hotel. The breakfast was freshly cooked and of a very high standard. The room was well appointed and the en suite was a masterpiece of design - I take my hat off to the person who managed to fit a quite spacious ensuite into the bedroom without compromising the bedroom space available. The host Marta was very pleasant and welcoming.

There is a bus stop only minutes away at the top of the street if you need to take transport into town but it's a flat walk and we made it, even fairly slowly, (soaking up the architecture) in about 20 minutes. There are two good pubs at the end of the road, again 2 minutes away and they serve good less expensive meals (compared to town prices) and a good pint of real ale. If you like indian food - there's an indian tapas restaurant on Infirmary Street called Mother India, which is well worth a visit but you will have to book as it is very popular - which speaks for itself. All the breads are light and fluffy and cooked fresh and the best we have tasted. You do feel a bit rushed through the courses but i would prefer to put it down to their efficiency in service rather than the feeling of wanting you out asap. Next to this is a very old pub, perhaps the smallest in Edinburgh, (Royal Oak?) they seemed to have buskers on each night starting from about 6pm and the quality of the performers was excellent and totally free - new musicians seemed to come and go all night. We enjoyed a sing along with visitors from different parts of the world and the atmosphere was good hearted and friendly. I remember with fondness Paul Simon songs sung in 3 different languages all at the same time. Edinburgh is a lovely city - enjoy!

Our family of four just returned from two excellent stays at Teviotdale House in Edinburgh, staying a total of four nights. The home is a well-maintained and beautifully furnished row house in a friendly, safe neighborhood very close to a great old pub, fish and chips shop and bus stop to the town center. Marta was a very gracious hostess and helped us plan our travels in Edinburgh. She and her staff served excellent breakfasts, including bacon and sausage from their local butcher and toast from home-baked bread. Our beds were very comfortable with crisp sheets and comfy pillows. One room was en-suite with a four poster bed and the other was a twin with private bathroom, both with immaculately clean and well-lit facilities. The showers were great! We booked our second visit after the first and will return to Teviotdale House next time we are in Edinburgh.

Room Tip: If you have special requests or needs, just ask Marta.

We stayed in this guest house for 2 nights and found it nice and clean, with friendly, helpful staff and a good breakfast. It is located just 3 minutes away from the bus stop to the city and the bus ride will take a mere10 minutes. Good value for money. A slight disadvantage: no en-suite bathrooms.

Regarding the above we would like to point out that most of our rooms are en-suite. There are only 2 bedrooms which are not en-suite. Each of these 2 rooms has a private bathroom outside the room, for its exclusive use.

We stayed here in April when having a weekend break in Edinburgh.
This guesthouse is a wonderful place to stay, the rooms are lovely and the home cooked meals are fantastic. Alan & Marta make wonderful hosts.
Although set in a quiet street, the city centre is not far away, and in fact it's a really nice walk through the Meadows to get to the heart of the city.
We would thoroughly recommend staying here and we will definitely be back!

Room Tip: Ask for the room with the four-poster bed

The Teviotdale is located in a nice area of town and Allen & Marta are great! They provided maps, advice and made reservations when we needed them. They also prepare a nice breakfast.
the rooms, however, feel old and a bit musty.. The rooms have been converted to en suite so there is a bathroom added into a very old room, which is a bit odd.
We really liked the neighborhood and neighboring area of Morningside. I would recommend staying in Morningside for your stay in Edinburgh.

This is a lovely Victorian townhouse in a great location in Edinburgh, just south of the centre. Its very close to one of the main bus routes into the city centre, or you can easily walk to the Royal Mile, for instance. As it is in a quiet residential street, there is no traffic noise and parking was easy too.
We stayed with our 2 (early teens) children who are old enough to have their own room but we were more comfortable with them in a room close to ours. Marta and Alan couldn't have been more helpful and they gave us 2 rooms next to each other. Both very spacious & attractively decorated, with very comfy beds - we had an en-suite with shower and the children had a shower-room in the hall but it was for their private use.

With home-made shortbread every day and really excellent breakfasts (my daughter and I especially loved the muesli with fruit & yoghurt!) with loads of choice, all beautifully cooked and presented, we would definitely recommend Teviotdale and hope to stay there again!

This is a great place to stay. About 1.5 miles from the Royal mile, with several bus stops, within walking distance. Alan and Marta couldn't have been more gracious, and the room was perfect. Breakfast was great. Marta gave us numerous suggestions for activities and all were right on target. Next time we are in Edinburgh, we will know where to stay.
