Reviewed August 8, 2008

We had the double room with the sleigh bed on the top floor at the front, overlooking the park. This room has a sloping ceiling on one side but so do our bedrooms at home so this wasn't an issue for us and it added to the charm. The en-suite shower room was excellent. There was no audible noise from any of the other rooms.The decor throughout was in good condition and everything was clean. The breakfasts were excellent and all the staff and owners friendly and efficient. We thought it a reasonable price for the high season. We were able to park directly outside on the road, and used the excellent regular bus service into the city. We would definitely stay here again if we returned to Edinburgh.

Nice guest house. Bus station directly in front of the house. Enough free parking places at the street available. Friendly people. Very nice and clean room. Breakfast was a 3 course menu (each course was selectable) and very good.

Had a very comfotable stay. The bathroom was very clean with fresh towels. The breakfast was excellent. The only drawback being the bedroom which was small with a sloping roof--very difficult to avoid hitting one's head on the roof. Just 15 mins to the city centre.

We really enjoyed our stay at Sandaig. Our room overlooked the park and we had a lovely view. The room was very nice and clean. The breakfast was delicious, especially the porridge with cream and maple syrup. Derek was very helpful in telling us about the different sites in Edinburgh.

The bus service is incredible. Very clean buses and extremely punctual. The bus stop is right outside sandaig.

We would definitely use Sandiag again.

Lovely B&B only a 10 min. bus ride to the city center. Very homey with large comfortable room, quiet neighborhood and a fantastic breakfast in a beautiful dining room. Very friendly and accomodating staff. I highly reccomend this B&B when visting the incredible city of Edinburgh

We truly enjoyed our stay at Sandaig. Once again it is the owners who make or break your stay. The owners were lovely, to the point of coming out as we were leaving to wish us well. It was a lot like a family member coming out to wish you a heartfelt bon voyage. We truly felt welcomed here.

Our room was lovely, clean and comfortable, which is all I can ask for. They leave some whisky in the room for you which is a nice little touch on arrival.

The rooms have all been decorated tastefully and elegantly. The breakfast room was gorgeous!! The breakfast was outstanding! I was so sick of the full Scottish breakfast by the time we arrived here that I was delighted with the menu selection. There was a lovely muesli compote parfait that was served with thoughtful garnish - a lot more than I could expect from breakfast. There were yummy egg dishes - not the usual fried or scrambled. Waffles on the menu too. Mmmmm.

I have no complaints other than that our washroom was really really small, too small for 3 people. They allowed us the use of the one in the hall but it felt awkward to use it, and therefore we didn't use it for bathing or showering which would have been very useful.

All in all we enjoyed our stay and would absolutely stay here again. Thank you to the incredible owners and staff.

The guest house was amazing. The staff was very friendly and always willing to help us out. The rooms were cosy and very clean. And the breakfast was freshly prepared and great tasting too. There's a bus stop right outside the guest house that takes you down town and you can even buy bus tickets at the guest house. We were traveling with a two and a half year old and our stay was very comfortable. We would highly recommend the Sandaig to anyone.
