Just returned from a romantic weekend break in Edinburgh and we were well looked after at the Edinburgh Townhouse. The proprietor is very friendly, showing us to our room and explaining breakfast and other facilities concisely and politely.
The room was spacious enough for a couple of nights, with a dressing table and wardrobe, but not much space for luggage so might not be great for an extended stay (although some of the rooms may be bigger). We had clean and perfectly functioning en suite - towels were provided but toiletries weren't.
The continental breakfast was more the sufficient (the biggest croissants I've ever seen!), although was only served until 9:30am so not much chance for a long lie-in.
However, it wouldn't matter too much if you missed breakfast as the guest house is so perfectly located that you've got hundreds of eating options on your doorstep. Two minutes walk from Princes Street, about 15 minutes from Waverley Station and about 15 minutes from the castle and the Royal Mile.
With the perfect location and such friendly customer service I can definitely recommend the Townhouse for a weekend visit to Edinburgh (unless you have mobility problems, as there are several flights of stairs and no lift).
