A beautifully maintained guest house in a tranquil location. The owners showed thoughtfulness and care with their lovely finishing touches, and their friendly but not imposing manner. Excellent value for money, highly recommended.

I chose Joppa Turrets after seeing the reviews on here and I wasn't disappointed. I stayed here for three nights and I really wish it could have been longer.

The location is fabulous, right on the Promenade with wonderful sea views. You can fall asleep to the sound of the waves - so relaxing.

Anne & Phil are the perfect hosts, so friendly. And Phil has perhaps the most impressive moustache I have ever seen!

Breakfast is a treat, generous and very very tasty. I didn't need lunch, it was so filling!

It's about a 25 minute bus ride into Edinburgh and the buses are really frequent so it's ideally located for the best of both worlds.

In short, Joppa Turrets comes highly recommended.

Had a single room with views over the garden and the sea, which looked like a winter wonderland due to loads of snow. At night the soft splashing of the waves could be heard, which was really nice. The room and the bathroom were tidy, clean and comfortable with cosy window seats. The owners were very nice and had no issue with me arriving very late in the evening. Would stay there again any time, highly recommended. I liked the selection of fresh fruits for breakfast.

If you want a great place to stay that is near Edinburgh but also near the water, try this great B&B. The four of us wanted easy access to Edinburgh, but wanted to avoid driving in the city. Joppa Turrets is along an easy bus line - which we used to explore the city. The service at the B&B was great - and pubs and restaurants werewithin easy walkng distance. Great view, great owners, and great conversation.

This is one of the friendliest guset houses that we have stayed in. It is clean and well kept, the owners are very friendly and make you feel at home. The food is excellent and plentiful with a wide choice. It is located on the prominade and beach it is very quiet at night and has the benefit of the soothing sound of the sea.
It is easy access to Edinburgh by bus at the top of the road costing just £1.20p for the 20 to 30 minute ride into the centre of Edinburgh. The bus costs £1.20 regardless of distance and no change is given so have the exact fare ready.
I have no hesitation in recommending this to friends and family we shall certainly stay there again when visiting Edinburgh.
I can only add A++++++++++++++++++++++++ all round.
