5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2009

This lovely Bed & Breakfast is a 15 minute walk away from the Royal Mile of Edinburgh old town. With a Starbucks just across the street, and a Tesco Market beside it, the location is even better. The owner was very nice and showed us a back road where we could park our car. He even drove us down to get the car when we were driving out of town.
The room was huge with a proportionally large bathroom just beside it, which we had all to ourselves. The very warm comforter was so nice, my husband wants me to try and find one just the same!!
The breakfasts were lovely, full breakfast with porridge, homemade fruit cocktail, juice, tea or coffee, and cereals. Followed by eggs, bacon, sausage, black pudding and toast. We are very happy with our stay here, recommended for sure!

Having tried a number of Guest Houses in Edinburgh, this has to be the best. Joyce and Neil gave us a warm welcome, and breakfast was superb. The house is lovely with nice antiques and warm colours, not the usual Ikea/beige look that many of these old houses have adopted. It's a bus ride into town, but plenty of good eating places nearby. Tried to keep it secret, but failed!

I have stayed at Sandeman House twice, both times travelling to Edinburgh on business. It really made my time in Edinburgh a little special. The house is in a beautiful period terrace in Bruntsflied/Morningside, just off Holy Corner where the bus to the city centre stops every few minutes. It's very convenient for visitors to Napier University, being literally across the road from Merchiston Campus.
The rooms are nicely decorated to keep up with the period atmosphere. the breakfast is excellent and Neil and Joyce are wonderful hosts.
Very reasonably priced too, compared to B&Bs in the centre of the city which are not even close to this one in comfort and charm.
It will go back there on my next visit to Edinburgh.
