Perfection! - Rating 5/5
Ian and David have created the perfect guest house. Every detail has been considered and is delivered with head, heart, soul, and love. After previous stays in hotels which felt very impersonal I have now found my home from home in Edinburgh. The ideal combination of delicious breakfasts, picture perfect rooms and bathrooms, a warm and friendly atmosphere and nothing too much trouble means I felt thoroughly spoilt during my stay. Will certainly return. A huge thank you Ian and David.

The best BnB in Edinburgh!- Rating 5/5
David and Ian were such lovely hosts. The house was so homey and the room was very comfortable. We were checked-in with a delicious welcome drink and shared information about the Scottish breakfast that they serve which was very elaborate / yummy. Both David and Ian were very knowledgeable about the city and able to show us the best route into town (super easy from the BnB), where to eat etc. I would highly recommend staying here and we will be back in the future to see more of Edinburgh and the Scotland Highlands.

Don't judge a book by its cover; not much on the outside, but wonderful on the inside.- Rating 5/5
I didn't have a good impression when we first pulled up in front of the Castle Park Guest House in Edinburgh, as there was an auto repair shop across the street and some trash along the curb where we parked. Parking also required payment, although we were able to avoid that on the weekend and we returned our rental car before the required parking fees during the week. Once inside, we were given a warm and thorough welcome by Ian and David who were fantastic hosts. The interior of the home has been completely remodeled with modern fixtures, showers, carpets, etc. Everything was very clean and the hosts continually made sure we were satisfied with everything in the room. Every morning we received a wide choice of options for breakfast that included coffee (French Press), freshly baked croissants, eggs cooked to order, yoghurt, fruit, and many more items that we didn't order. Although the general neighborhood was nothing special, it was safe to walk through at night, and close enough to the center of town and several restaurants. We often chose to walk to where we needed to go, although we also took advantage of the bus line which stopped directly across the street. A very pleasant stay.

Cozy, welcoming, and easy! - Rating 5/5
Absolutely loved staying at Castle Park for my solo trip. While I was only in Edinburgh for two nights and had limited time in the city, David and Ian made sure I was taken care of and had plenty of recommendations. The area is walkable and super easily accessible to the city bus (which requires just a contactless card, so easy!). The room was cozy and decorated with traditional Scottish decor that made me appreciate the intentionality of the space. Homemade breakfast was the icing on the cake! Would recommend to anyone traveling to Edinburgh and will hope it’s not fully booked next time I go!

Highly recommend staying at Castle Park. From the moment I arrived (early), I felt welcomed and just pampered. Ian and David went above and beyond to help me map out the best walking routes, great recommendations for restaurants. The rooms are comfortable, very detail oriented, right down to pre-filling the kettle in your room. Loved that each room was modern, but differentiated by individual tartans/clans. The breakfast options are numerous, and very high quality.I would absolutely return and can’t wait to return. Edinburgh and Castle Rock captured my heart.

A lovely, warm, and well-located guest house with wonderful hosts and attention to detail!- Rating 5/5
As a solo traveler, the help and advice Ian and David provided before I even arrived was extremely helpful. They were communicative and flexible, helping ensure I could get situated as soon as I landed. The guest house itself is beautiful, and in a great central location if you want to be able to easily access the main stretches of the city while still having some peace and quiet when you’re ready to get a good night’s sleep. There are some great bars and restaurants on the surrounding blocks, and it’s a brisk and pleasant walk along the Meadows to get to Old Town; I personally preferred walking everywhere but there are also buses that come through out front to take you around.Waking up and having a full breakfast in the bright and airy sitting room each morning was a treat and was the perfect way to prepare for a day of wandering about. The meals were extraordinary and offered a variety of options, all of which I greatly enjoyed trying over the course of the week.My single room was perfect for me, minimal and clean and suited with everything I’d need - small and charming but affixed with lots of modern functionality that still made it feel luxurious. I had a private bathroom right down the hall which was secure and beautifully updated. Ian and David were helpful throughout my stay, offering recommendations for things to do and checking in regularly to make sure I had everything I needed (like refreshing sheets and towels as needed, stocking me up with snacks to bring on my days out and about, and booking me a taxi for the early morning trip back to the airport).I look forward to staying with them again when I undoubtedly find myself back in Edinburgh!

Arriving way too late and tired from our flight, a very friendly host (David) made us soon smile, as did the beautifully designed and outfitted accommodation - the Douglas room. After a relaxing night in the comfortable beds and the surprisingly quiet neighbourhood, the splendid, homecooked scottish breakfast was the next hilight of our stay. We not only enjoyed perfect coffee from the French press and the delicious food, but the delightful Ian with his authentic warmth and his sense of humour.My daughter and I (living in alpine Switzerland) couldn't imagine a better start for our Nature Fotography Trip to the Western Highlands. Very much recommended!

Ian and David are lovely — they create an atmosphere in the guest house that’s so warm and homey. There is so much thought put into every detail of the house. The room was great — a lot of light, clean, had everything I needed. I got the room with an external bathroom but it was so easy to use plus it’s got a really nice shower. Ian’s homemade bread is delicious at breakfast. They both also gave me good recs for walking routes to town and things to see. I felt really well cared for and I would definitely come back.

We had a wonderful experience at Castle Park Guest House. Ian and David know how to run a guest house and that is shown from the very beginning. Being our first time to Edinburgh, they were most gracious in sitting with us and making recommendations for restaurants, tours, etc. Their suggestions were wonderful. Our guest room had been renovated recently with a comfortable bed and lovely bathroom. Their breakfast service was the best that we've experienced in our travels to bed and breakfasts. The guest house is about a 20 minute walk from the Royal Mile but for us the walk was not at all an issue. We would absolutely stay here again. Thank you for your hospitality Ian and David.

After a day out and about there is nothing better when traveling than coming back to a perfect room. Spacious, clean, light and just plain comfortable!! Fantastic bed and very thoughtful amenities. The breakfasts were fresh, abundant and served in a relaxing atmosphere. Last but certainly not least, our hosts Ian and David were also amazing with spot on recommendations for places to eat and see in Edinburgh. We couldn’t have asked for more!! We look forward to our next trip to stay with you!!!

A must book!- Rating 5/5
David and Ian were incredible hosts and their gorgeous B&B feels like a home away from home. The room and bathroom was beautiful and so well done.It was as clean or cleaner than most hotels. They go above and beyond with their service with each guest. The complimentary breakfast was amazing and was such a great way to start our mornings. They have put their heart and soul into this business and it shows. If you are going to stay in Edinburgh, stay here! It’s minutes away from great restaurants and pubs and close enough to walk to the main attractions. We will definitely be staying here again when we visit Scotland!

Making you feel at home. Warm and Welcoming. - Rating 5/5
The Castle Park Guesthouse is a great place to stay whilst in Edinburgh. Close to the city for local attractions and also evening walks in Meadow Park. Ian and David are great hosts, kind and welcoming with terrific recommendations for local tours and restaurants to try out. The interior is decorated lovely and you can tell that they have made a great effort to modernise the property but still keep a Victorian feel. The glass of bubbly when checking in was a nice welcome and the breakfast was an absolute delight, delicious and filling - customers get a great insight into Scottish cuisine and the hosts make their own bread! Overall I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Castle Park Guesthouse - Ian and David make you feel at home, really warm and friendly and I look forward to staying there again and can’t wait to do so!

We travelled up for the Marathon and arrived at guest house at 9.30am.Even though check in wasn't until 3pm we were welcomed with a coffee and Dave sat down with us with a map and gave us some beautiful places to visit and to walk.The room had everything we needed tea making facilities and biscuits and the bathroom had extra touches such as shampoo and conditioner and shower wash.The breakfast although we only managed one morning due to time of flight on the 2nd morning was delicious! Home made bread and traditional scottish items on the breakfast that I tasted and loved! We were given a packed breakfast for the 2nd day as we were leaving before breakfast that was a lovely touch!David and Ian couldn't do enough for us and will definitely be back!Thank you both

Lovely in every way - Rating 5/5
Castle Park Guest House, located within walking distance of Old Town, was the ideal place for my few days in Edinburgh. Ian and David are perfect hosts - gracious, attentive, helpful, and very professional. The guest house itself is absolutely immaculate, and both comfortably and beautifully appointed. From the best quality beds and linens to light-filled rooms and daily "fresh-ups," there is extraordinary care for guests. And I haven't yet mentioned the breakfasts. The breakfasts! There are delicious options for an included cooked breakfast - eggs, meats, vegan meats, smoked salmon on request, homemade bread, etc., as well as a variety of quick and cold foods along with pressed coffee, teas, and juices. Breakfast in a lovely sunlit front room with peaceful music is a soul-and-body-nourishing start to the day.In short, the Guest House provides the most comfortable, excellent accommodations without being fussy and pretentious - just perfect. I cannot more highly recommend this lovely guest house.

We checked out (with reluctance!) this morning 24/5/2023. This Guest House ticks all the boxes. Booking on-line was very straightforward, the welcome by both David & Ian was warm and genuine. They spent time with us explaining keys, breakfast and the availabiility of refreshments and fruit during any day-time return we might wish to make. We loved the "Clan" theme of each room, right down to the room tartan key-fob. Our room was beautifully fitted out and very confortable indeed, even down to the choice of pillows. Our breakfasts were beautifully cooked and served. We were impressed by the "minimum waste" policy of the owners and their clear care for environmental issues. The Guest House is well placed for a wide choice of restautants. Shops and places of interest are easily accessed by public transport and the Guest House Vestibule is well stocked with maps and leaflets highlighting these choices. We hope to be back. George & Rae

They were always on hand to help with any questions we had and provided us with fantastic recommendations for things to do in the city.The rooms themselves were simply stunning.

We particularly loved the attention to detail, such as the fluffy towels and luxurious bedding, which made our stay even more special.The location of the guest house was ideal, not too far away from the lovely old town of Edinburgh, which was a major draw for us.

An absolutely fantastic B&B, really well located and run by the nicest people in Ian and David. The B&B has had a full renovation and you can really tell. The house has lost none of its original charm or traditional features whilst also providing all the luxuries you'd want in a modern day B&B, plus extras on top. The breakfast is superb, home-cooked with lots of options for any palette and freshly made pastries that you can take with you whilst you explore Edinburgh. They even make their own bread! The rooms are delightful, clean and cosy; the bed super comfortable and the bathroom perfect. There really is no way to improve this place so if you're umming and ahring about where to stay, just stay here, you will not regret it.

Fantastic from Start to Finsh! - Rating 5/5
Planned a visit to Edinburgh at the end of October and after a few days scouring the internet for potential hotels and apartments my and a friend finally decided on the Castle Park Guest House ran by David & Ian. Reasons for the booking - Location, Price, breakfast included in price and décor of the Guest House was right up my street!On arrival, we had to arrange parking. This was a simple 2 minute journey to a nearby cinema complex. David and Ian, along with other hotels in the area have obviously done their homework and arranged a discounted charge to use the cinema car park if you stoppping in one of several hotels, the £10 per day was a nice little touch considering the cinema charge you 2.5 times that amount for non hotel stayers. A very nice idea indeed.We were shown to our room, which was fantastic. The shower was brilliant, beds were comfy. Breakfast was fabulous, cooked fresh and always left with a full stomach. Jokingly, my friend and I would appreciate later breakfast time, only due to us sampling a few too many beers on both nights before ; ) But seriously the breakfast is great and the hosts can do no more for you , nothing is too much troubleDavid and Ian are very happy to help you before you leave for the day. They make recommendations on places to visit, help with local transport issues like an unexpected rail strike whilst we were there. The location of the guest house is awesome, most places are walkable especially the Old Town and the area by Edinburgh CastleOverall it was a splendid couple of days in the Scottish City, its a fantastic place to visit whatever your interests. The Hotel is fantastic and we both would definitely stay again, 100% and we would hugely recoomend to everyone who is looking to stay hereThanks to Ian and David on a fabulous visit to Scotland!Keep Up the Good Work Guys!Hopefully see you again soon!

Enjoyable stay - Rating 5/5
We stayed at Castle Park Guest House for a long weekend and would certainly recommend it as a place to stay in Edinburgh. The room was comfortable, the breakfast superb (with very tasty homemade bread) and David and Ian were extremely nice hosts. From tips on how to get to the old town on foot, to recommendations of where to eat and generally being made to feel very welcome we very much enjoyed our stay. We would stay there again if we came back to Edinburgh.

Charming, Homely, and Quiet - Rating 5/5
Iain and David make absolutely every effort to create a quintessentially Scottish home-away-from-home for all of their guests. Staying with them during our last visit to Edinburgh became an unexpected highlight of the trip and left both myself and my partner eager to return as soon as possible solely to experience their hospitality again. The room was extremely comfortable, stylish, and quiet, with a suitably homely view from the window. My partner was particularly impressed with the bed, while I was more appreciative of the breakfast, fulfilling both of our philosophies of life.

Excelent Guest House and Hosts - Rating 5/5
Everything was excelent. Amazing breakfast, hand made. The house is very nice and comfortable and fulfil with sustainable standards. The location is pretty good and in 20 minutes you can get Grassmarket and Royal Mile or Dean Village area. Two bus lines have stop in hotel's street. The sorrounding area is very quiet and safe, residential area and very near you can find different restaurants.Ian and David are the perfect hosts. They are very kind and they are always aware of what the guest needs. EXCELENT. One additional comment for the nice Nuria who works with them in the house, her simpathy and smile will be always with us.Ian, David and Nuria speak Spanish, so this is important for a better communication for who do not speak English.We strongly reccomend this guest house.

Modern Victorian with a Twist - Rating 5/5
The hosts are very kind and went above any beyond to accommodate my food sensitivities at breakfast. Quiet room, comfy bed, modern decor with a tartan twist. Easy to walk to Old Town via The Meadows, or north to Dean Village and Stockbridge. Great area to stay in if you don’t want to be right in the thick of tourists but close enough to walk. I will definitely stay again!

On my first solo trip abroad, Ian and David made my stay better than I could have dreamed. My room was beautiful with thoughtful touches like a makeup remover cloth and a hair dryer that works properly. Their breakfasts were divine and the homemade bread is not to be missed. The location is within walking distance to everything I wanted to see or do. It is a delicate balance to be helpful without being overbearing. Ian and David are superb at that balance. My only downside to my stay was that I had to leave too soon. I will definitely be back to stay with them, and I highly recommend the Castle Park Guest House to anyone who wants a wonderful experience in Edinburgh.

The Best B&B in Edinburgh - Rating 5/5
I had a conference to attend at the Edinburgh International Conference Center and began my search for nearby B&Bs/hotels many months before traveling. There are several, but I narrowed in on Castle Park Guest House because of the owners’ dedication to being eco-friendly, all positive Tripadvisor reviews, beauty of the house, 8-minute walk to the conference center, and “all are welcome here” position on their website.I made the best decision to stay with Ian and David at the Castle Park Guest House! Five out five stars for location, cleanliness, service, and value! Castle Park was my home for seven days. I believe this is the best B&B in Edinburgh. While I haven’t stayed in any other B&Bs in Edinburgh, I have stayed in B&Bs in other parts of the world, and this was truly my most wonderful B&B experience yet. My colleagues stayed at nearby hotels, paid more money than I did for their accommodations, and did not get a FABULOUS Scottish breakfast cooked to order every morning like I did. I don’t think I could have gotten a better breakfast in an actual restaurant. On the two days I had to leave early (breakfast starts at 8am), I was sent with a bag of fruits and snacks for the road.Before booking, I e-mailed the owners inquiring which room would they recommend as the quietest (I am a horrifically light sleeper). I received a quick response with a couple of recommendations. I chose the “superior double/twin room” on the second floor (Americans would call this the third floor) set under the eaves at the back of the house. The double twins can be combined to make a king-size bed. This room was perfect for me! I slept well even with the windows open every night. I used the supplied fan for white noise. There was also very good soundproofing between the rooms. I don’t know how they achieved this in a historic house, but they did.Ian and David really have thought of everything to make their guests comfortable. The room was painted in soothing colors, the artwork was tasteful (black and white photographs of Edinburgh), the bed was super comfortable with the perfect amount of pillows, the furnishings were useful, spotless, and completely intact, and the curtains were blackout so all outside light could be blocked for optimal sleeping. The shower was AMAZING - far better than my shower at home. The bed scarf and throw pillows were made with Clan Douglas tartan, which made the room feel dreamily Scottish. I have no Scottish heritage, but now I feel loyal to the Clan Douglas – ha ha! The complimentary shower toiletries were Scottish-made, high quality, and smelled lovely. My hair was so soft during my stay in Scotland! The room was outfitted with an electric tea kettle, tea bags, coffee, hot chocolate, milk, sugar, a glass water bottle, and biscuits (cookies). The room was kept spotless all week. The complimentary wifi was fast and always working.The view from this room was amazing. You look out over backyards between historic buildings and a lovely church. The folks on this street take good care of their little yards, with lots of lovely trees and roses. You can see the Holyrood hill in the distance. Just beautiful! The room served as a calming sanctuary at the end of a long day of doing tourist things and attending conference.I arrived during a heatwave. It was actually the hottest day ever on record for Scotland. Most buildings in Edinburgh (including many hotels) are not air conditioned. Castle Park Guest House is also not air conditioned and this room gets the afternoon sun. It was hot upon arrival. That being said, even with it being the hottest day on record, at night the temperature dropped to the low 70s F (about 22 C), which is the temperature I have my air conditioner set on at home anyway. As the night wore on, the room became a very comfortable temperature and the rest of the week, after the heatwave broke, the night temperatures were in the 50-60s F (about 13 C). Optimal sleeping temperature!Ian and David were kind and supportive hosts. They assisted me with efficient walking directions, pointed me in the direction of the best photo opportunities of the city, scheduled taxis for me when needed (their most trusted taxi company’s app does not work with American phone numbers), and they always had a welcoming and encouraging demeanor. They even took a look at a list of restaurants I created from my Tripadvisor research and helped me narrow in on the must visit eateries. Th

Lovely extended weekend in Edinburgh - Rating 5/5
Ignore any remaining old reviews from before 2019 saying Castle Park Guest House rooms are 'dated'. With all the hard work, love and dedication of 'new' owners/hosts Ian & David, this is definitely not the case any longer with their beautiful and modern clan-themed rooms and very smart establishment in general.From start to finish, we were made to feel very welcome and nothing was too much trouble for them in making every guest feel special.Their attention to detail in all aspects of their business is superb from the top notch, quality breakfast selections to their ad-hoc knowledgeable and helpful tourist advice.With bus stops directly outside for at least 2 very reliable routes into the old and new town areas and a short walk to other alternative routes, there is no need to take a car or taxi if, like us, you are long-distance visitors. This came in very handy for the only rainy day of our 5 day visit.We can't thank Ian, David & Hannah enough for ensuring our stay was so pleasurable and I will be living off the brownie points for a long while to come by choosing their guest house for my wife's birthday treat.

I spent 2 nights in this accommodation in order to visit only 1 day in Edinburgh and was delighted to have been able to stay here. First of all the welcome and the thoughtfulness of our hosts is to be underlined. The room was very nice, comfortable and very clean. The breakfast was absolutely delicious with many options! Finally, the accommodation is quite close to the old town, so you can do everything by walk.

The reviews we read about Castle Park Guest House were true. The breakfast, the accommodation,the decor but most of all the hosts were all perfect. So much attention to detail but such a relaxing atmosphere. The guest house is well placed for getting into the centre of Edinburgh by bus or on foot but in an area with good small restaurants and shops. We are looking forward to a return visit! Thank you Ian and David.

Fantastic room, location, breakfast and wonderful owners! - Rating 5/5
I had booked a room here for a little weekend break with my girlfriend, and we were already talking about how soon we could come back here. It's that good. Everything you could possibly need, and then some. The nightly rate is extremely good value for such a high-standard establishment. Our room was very clean, with plenty of nice amenities. Breakfast was delicious, as you can see on the website, it's a very standard cooked breakfast with lovely homemade bread- they even make fresh pastries!I must thank everyone there for making us feel so welcome, their local knowledge and friendly chat made our stay.

Wonderful stay, faultless! - Rating 5/5
We had such an amazing stay here. It was my boyfriend's first time in Scotland and we definitely picked the perfect spot to stay. Ian and David are so friendly and helpful. Brilliant cooked breakfast, spotless and super comfortable rooms, and stylish, but still homely, decor. Will be coming back for sure! Also, such a great location, walking distance to the old town (20 minutes or so) and a gorgeous walk there via the Meadows park. And the guesthouse's immediate neighbourhood is itself a really cool place to go out with a plethora of cute cafes and bars, supermarkets, and the pretty canal just a stone's throw away. Great access by public transport too. Definitely, definitely will be returning!

hello David and Ian,Thank you for our lovely stay at your guesthouse.We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Edinburgh. This is because we received a very warm welcome from you in the guesthouse. The room was neatly decorated and clean with ample space. There was also no shortage of coffee and tea with biscuits in the room.And then the breakfast! The breakfast was very extensive with homemade toast, eggs in any shape you wanted, beans, bacon, sausages, black pudding, tattie scones. But there was also milk and yogurt with cornfalkes or meusli. In short, a very extensive and delicious variety. All of this prepared with love and devotion.Thanks again and maybe until a next time.With regards Mark and Christel.

Our stay at Castle Park Guest House was perfect. We spent 2 nights / 3 days there. Our room was great, its size, its furniture, the bathroom, the services, like the kettle and the tea and coffee selection was amazing. So was the breakfast. The breakfast option was really great. I follow a gluten-free vegetarian diet and I could get whatever I needed. Jan and David are very hospitable and they are doing their best to make their guests' stay unforgettable. Whenever we go back to Edinburgh we would like to stay in this place again, for sure. We can recommend this guest house for anyone, for business travellers as well as for tourists. Thank you, Ian and David, for your kindness and care.

From the moment I walked into Castle Park Guest House, slightly flustered with my phone on only 1% battery, I knew I was going to have a wonderful stay. Ian and David made me feel relaxed and welcome immediately, with a glass of fizz whilstchecking in, and found a spare charger for me. My room was spotlessly clean, very comfortable and very tastefully decorated, as is the rest of the guest house. Breakfast was superb, including homebred bread and lots of choice (I could have had a bit of everything if I'd wanted to) and on my second day,as I had an extremely early start, they sorted me out with a breakfast I could have either in my room or on the go. Ian and David are perfect hosts, nothing is too much for them, and I will, most definitely, be back!

Fantastic B&B - Rating 5/5
Castle Park Guest House is a fantastic B&B and made our 2-night mini-break in Edinburgh so pleasurable. Huge thank you David and Ian for fitting us in at such short notice on a Saturday afternoon after our original choice of accommodation (a nearby big-name hotel) severely let us down! But we're so happy that our misfortune led us to stay here instead.Just a short walk from Haymarket, it is well-located with a pleasurable walk to shops, restaurants and attractions like the Museum of Scotland and The Real Mary King's Close - both of which we enjoyed immensely on the recommendation of our hosts.Our top-floor room (Douglas) was spacious, modern and absolutely spotless with an extremely comfortable bed and a wonderful, roomy shower. In fact, the entire property is cosy, sparkling clean and shows incredible attention to detail.Breakfast was superb, served with a choice of delicious, aromatic pastries and wonderful home-made bread - we recommend trying everything on the menu, especially the vegetarian haggis and tattie scone if you were (like us) unfamiliar with them. Our hosts were generous and super attentive, making sure the meal was to our liking and that we didn't go hungry!We'd definitely recommend Castle Park Guest House to anyone looking to stay in Edinburgh. Make it your first choice before even thinking of any other hotel in the area - you won't be disappointed!

We stayed here for 2 nights in December. Upon arrival we were immediately made to feel welcome. We were given a glass of bubbly each and informed we had been given a free room upgrade due to availability !! We were also told our room was ready early and we could check in which was fantastic. Our room was perfect. Clean, spacious and quiet. It had everything in it to accommodate our needs. The bed was super comfy! Breakfast was a highlight, there was a fantastic choice of hot breakfast and continental to choose from, as well as a selection of drinks. It was all absolutely delicious. Ian and David were the most fantastic hosts, nothing was too much trouble and they were always so helpful if you had any questions. We would absolutely come back and stay here again!

Simply Brilliant - Rating 5/5
Had originally planned on a day trip to Edinburgh, then found this guest house on a spur-of-the-moment search.What a find!!!My 10yo daughter and I stayed here for only one night, but we both wished we could have stayed longer.From start to finish David and Ian were truly exceptional hosts, both via email and in person - from the initial booking to our waves goodbye.I'd originally booked a double room but when I mentioned it would be just my daughter and I, we were offered a twin room for our comfort.THANK YOU!Made my daughter's trip.Moreover, we'd arrived in Edinburgh in the morning (spent it at Dynamic Earth - well worth a look!) and walking around.Despite us arriving earlier than expected, David sorted us out quickly and explained things clearly.We were provided a map of the area, including buses to take into town (the stop is literally a few metres from the guest house!).We've stayed at a few guest houses since the start of Covid, but I felt the safest here.Accommodation:The shower was HUGE!It's sometimes difficult to convince my daughter to wash daily, but she had two showers in less than 12 hours, she loved it so much.:)The beds were divine; I slept so well, as did my daughter.Breakfast was truly superb, consisting of a large range of cooked food freshly prepared.In fact, it was the smell of the freshly baked bread that actually what woke me in the morning.(Mmmmm.....a lovely way to wake.).Highly recommend the veggie haggis as well.We could have been rolled out of the room, Ian plied us with so much gorgeous food for the day!We didn't have specific plans for the day.Both Ian and David made suggestions that were brilliant.A *very* easy walk from the guest house brought us to Greyfriar's (via the school that inspired Hogwarts) and the National Museum of Scotland, as well as the Castle.I didn't realise the museum had a roof terrace - Ian mentioned it - so we made sure to have a look.The views are amazing!Highly recommend.Overall, this is a gem of a place away from the hustle and bustle, but all of that is easily accessible by foot or bus.My main takeaway from our stay is David and Ian's commitment to sustainability, subtly evident in every aspect of our stay.I cannot recommend this guest house highly enough.Brilliant.Simply Brilliant!

Such a lovely place to stay! 10/10 experience - Rating 5/5
I would highly recommend staying here! Both Ian and David were so friendly and attentive. We interacted with Ian mainly, and as soon as we got there he gave us a map and showed us the best route to the Old Town. He was always around to ask if we needed anything.The rooms were clean and newly renovated, but also homely with hints of tartan. I liked that the rooms were named Scottish clans rather than numbers (although they seemed to be missing Clan Cunningham ;) ). I also loved the smell of the sea kelp hand soap/shower gel/shampoo/conditioner provided; I’m tempted to get some for myself!We were served a delicious breakfast both mornings, with lots of choice (full Scottish breakfast, yoghurts, cereals, fruits, juices, croissants, jams, and freshly basked bread!). I am not vegetarian/vegan, but I noticed an effort to cater for that too, and I was offered oat milk which I prefer.I felt the house was in a great city-centre location, as it was on a quiet road, and about a 10/15 minute walk from the city centre, and very near The Meadows.I would definitely say that this was a COVID-safe place to stay. Despite its relatively small size (7 or so bedrooms), I had barely any interaction with other guests (in stair wells/the common room area), everyone wore face masks when walking around, there was hand sanitiser at the entrance, social distancing was in place, and we were asked if it was okay for our rooms to be entered and cleaned whilst we were out for the day.They also took our bags before we checked in, and after we checked out, which I thought was really lovely as we didn’t need to lug them around the city. Furthermore, we were told there were board games in the dining room area, which were there to be played by all guests, especially if the weather got bad.We visited Edinburgh during COP26, and hotels were getting booked/going up in price like crazy. Compared to other hotels/places to stay in Edinburgh, the cost was significantly cheaper, but that was definitely not reflected in the experience.Overall it was a lovely stay, I wish we could have stayed longer!
