Cherry Tree Villa Guest House
Ranked #193 of 393 Edinburgh B&B and Inns
Reviewed September 8, 2012

It was our first station in Scottland and we had a very nice stay. Very familliar and the breakfast was perfect. Perhaps it was our failure to not ask for a private parking... Our car has almost been 'kidnapped' by the police. :)
Thanks for the friendly welcome to Scottland! We enjoyed and will return if we were back!

we choose this B&b because of his location near city center and the easyness to take a bus .
we had the time we stayed at cherry tree a good breakfast everymorning and downstairs a studio with 2 bedrooms and a bathroom to share with my parents, easy access to parking space behind the B&b, local pubs and restaurants also not so far away.

Cherry Tree Villa was great. It is warm, comfortable and clean. Great breakfast. Peter was a friendly, welcoming and a knowledgeable host. It is situated in a good location, loads of buses at the end of the road, a 20 minute walk into the city. Would thoroughly recommend.

My husband and I were warmly received by Peter, the very friendly and helpful host (also chief cook and bottle washer!). We arrived early AM, but were welcomed anyway. It was an easy walk to the center or bus stop and the buses ran very frequently.
We would definitely stay again or recommend it to our friends.

Room Tip: The room on the main floor is good for people who have trouble climbing stairs.

We stayed for four nights to see the City and do some things at the Fringe. The place was ideal for this. The room was small, but perfectly acceptable, clean and comfortable. The host, Peter, was incredibly friendly and very helpful when asked for advice about travel etc. The location is also very good. 20-25 minutes walk into town, or buses seemed to leave every five minutes from the next street along, and took 15-20 minutes to get right into the centre. Don't think you can ask much more from a B & B really!

A friend of mine and I stayed at the guest house for five nights. The host was exceptionally accomodating and friendly, we got a warm welcome and loved to stay there. Our room was comfortable, clean, calm and spacious. I'd like to point out the delicious breakfast, which is freshly made after you've ordered. Besides the guest house was an optimal base to explore the city, you've got many bus lines leaving just around 100m from the house.

Fans of Fawlty Towers will love this one. Booking was complicated, and mine got lost—my fault I was told. As an alternative I was offered two choices on the top floor. The first smelled of damp; so I chose the smaller, a single size into which a double bed had been wedged and the price raised accordingly. The room was noisy and not en-suite. The toilet across the hall flushes well because the tank hangs on the wall at a 45 degree angle! Don't worry about the shower. It drains eventually.

Communication with the manager is complicated as he does not live on site and the pay phone in the hall doesn't work. He was genial and helpful, however, and the breakfast was adequate. I assume this place has changed hands since all the glowing reviews were written, or maybe the rooms on the lower floors are better. Having no en-suite facilities, my room was definitely not worth 50 pounds per night!

Peter K, Manager at Cherry Tree Villa Guest House, responded to this reviewResponded August 5, 2012

The guest complained about using the internet to book a room. Then complained about the stairs. The shower being wet and not draining as fast as it should. Also, the smell of the shower going into the room that may cause dampness. Of course, the price. Then the phone that need coins to operate. Further, staying next to the guest house is not good enough one had to be 24/7 at reception. Finally, the gold medal goes to the complaint about the angle of the plumbing not being to her liking and needed seen to.
With hindsight forget £50 for a twin room during our busiest time of the year. £500 is not enough to cover the therapy.
