Stayed for a weekend break in Edinburgh with a friend. Vivienne was very helpful on arrival, giving recommendations for where to eat etc and helped arrange a taxi to get to Parkrun. Rooms are clean with excellent facilities (tea, coffee, biscuits,mini fridge with water. Hairdryer included and shampoo etc). Stayed in a twin room. Rooms aren't massive but perfect for what we wanted. All in all, good location, slightly out the centre (plenty of buses although we walked) with plenty of food and drink options in the area.
Very warm welcome; nice lady. Good (continental) breakfast. Good tips about where to eat and to go.Every day the room and bathroom were cleaned and beds made up. We had some nice chats Walking distance from the centre and airport bus very close.Not if, but when wo go back to Edinburgh, We want to stay at Vivienne's again.
Great location - excellent access to public transport - lovely room and generous breakfast. Vivienne the landlady is efficient, trustworthy and funny. No request was too much for her. Local information is up to date.
We had a very good experience at this establishment. Our hostess was very charming, helpful, and attentive. Excellent location and great value. She does everything to make your stay a success. The rooms are very clean and stylish with everything a weary traveler may need. Excellent breakfast. Highly recommend.
Right after we placed the reservation, Vivienne (the proprietor) emailed us right away and was so prompt in answering questions in multiple emails that followed. Vivienne was spot on with the estimate for a taxi price from the airport. When we arrived, our room was even more beautiful than the photos. Very comfortable beds and the bathroom looked newly renovated. The toiletries provided were wonderful. The mini fridge, biscuits, and tea were a wonderful treat to have. I cannot say more about the location. Her home is right next to the bus stop. SO convenient as the buses run every 10 minutes. Vivienne was delightful and such a gracious host! Breakfast was delicious. She provided great advice for tours and was so helpful ordering our return taxi to the airport. I would highly recommend Sherwood Guest House! When we head back to Edinburgh, that is where we will stay again!

Hi Kathleen. Free parking is limited in Edinburgh but I am lucky enough to have 3 parking spaces in the drive which are on a first come first served basis. Within the immediate area there is pay and display parking and slightly further from the house there is on street parking
