We keep coming back to Emmaus House for the welcome and friendly reception. We enjoy the common table at breakfast and the chance it gives us to hear and share information with other guests and the House community. This is really helpful during the Fringe and Festival. We also like that there is a comfortable lounge so that when we...

A really good place to find peace in a busy town. The spirituality of the house and the people who are caring for guests prepare are warm-hearted atmosphere. Thank you very much to experience the feeling of being really welcomed.

Emmaus house provided the perfect place to stop after a couple of days at the British open and venturing around in Edinburgh. It is a short pleasant walk to the busy centre and train stations. Wonderful breakfast was provided, both food and conversation. I am not of a religious faith and this was never an issue. I would highly recommend...

We had a wonderful time staying at Emmaus. Staff was great, place was great. And a terrific location. We loved the food and especially the breakfasts. Staff was not only helpful but we had some good chats as well. The front room is beautiful and warm. And it was so easy to get anywhere in the city from there

Facilities and staff welcome far exceeded my expectations. Simple breakfast included. Supper can be arranged for a fee. Near many buses. Conversations at meals priceless! Great prayer house and garden. Staff helped me navigate bus system and new tram to airport. Also sent me to a great church experience on Sunday. Loved my stay there.

Emmaus House in Edinburgh is special; special because of its welcoming ambiance and the way the religious life of the community flows quietly on without excluding guests of no faith like me. I stayed for five nights.As an older person travelling solo I particularly enjoyed the communal meals at the large kitchen table. The house is peaceful (no TV in...
