“Nice owner; nice place -> perfect stay”
Reviewed August 6, 2014

My wife and I stayed at Classic Guest House for two nights mid of July 2014.

It was an excellent stay at Classic house in Edinburgh!
Fine price-performance Ratio

For visiting the Attractions of Edinburgh, we took the Bus (£3.50 / day / Person). Bus Station is approx. 400 Meters away in the next Mail Road. Busses run every 5 Min.

This is definitely the worst B&B I've ever visited with the rudest owner who got very angry for absolutely no reason at all. When we booked, we were told that we would get a family room with two double beds, but we were given a double room with a put-up bed. The mattress covers were very dirty and old with many holes, the beds very uncomfortable and the bathroom didn't have any facilities,not even a soap bar.

The owner has no idea how to run a B&B with a very bad attitude towards his guests. When asked about the room we were promised, he shouted at us and told us that we were free to go and cancel our room at midnight. We didn't leave only because we didn't like the idea of going out and looking for another room somewhere else at that time of night with our 12 year old daughter with us. Their website is nothing short of misleading advertising: the pictures of the rooms are nothing like the real ones and are dirty, smelly and very unwelcoming. Definitely not worth the price of £120.

If you are looking for a B&B in Edinburgh, GO SOMEWHERE ELSE!!!

Room Tip: Don't stay at this hotel, our tip is to go away as soon as possible and leave this place!!!!

We have checked our booking information and concluded that this guest did not actually stay at the Classic Guest House and therefore this review does not reflect the quality of service and accommodation available here.

For the last four years we have received the Tripadvisor Certificate of Excellence at the Classic Guest House.

My wife and I stayed at the Classic Guest House for three nights early July . Accommodation was very nice . Our room was a small double en suite and was very comfortable . A very tasty breakfast was served every morning . Would highly recommend the Classic Guest House .

It was the first time for my partner going to Scotland. I decided to treat him for his birthday. Our stay at Classic Guest House was excellent. The staff were very welcoming and friendly. Breakfast was amazing !!! It was close to amenities and bus service into city. We highly recommend anyone to stay there when visiting Edinburgh. We will definitely be returning next year. Thank you for a lovely stay Roy and Viv

My husband and I stayed here in June. The location was good, close to town but not right in the busy centre. It's a lovely building and the staff are all very friendly and sweet. Our room was gorgeous, apparently the best in the house and we believed it! I'd happily recommend and stay here again. It's run more like a (very) small boutique hotel, very professional.

Room Tip: Room A was the big front room downstairs!
