The arrival was super easy, the key was in the box next to the door and we got in quickly. The breakfast is done personally and with much effort. If you habe the time its nice but don't expect it to be fast. The room was ok - the welcome whiskey a nice surprise. Good choice for a guesthouse.

First the positives. Andy was a very welcoming and accomodating host. Location was good for us as we were visiting friends and family in the Leith area. Accessibility to central Edinburgh was great as a bus is at the front door. Proximity to Leith restaurants and pubs was also good.

Lovely room and a good breakfast. I liked it so much I am coming back in February! The location is great - quiet but only a 10 minute bus ride into Princes Street! Perfect. I would have no hesitation in recommending The Sandaig.

The Sandaig served us very well during our two night stay in Edinburgh - Andy is a fabulous host, full of handy local information that you'd do well to utilise to fully make the most of your stay.

We recently stayed at the Sandaig guest house - the room was clean, and modern just what you'd expect - the shower was a little bit cramped but adequate- but what really made the stay lovely was the friendly nature of the hosts and the high standard of the breakfasts.

I enjoyed staying here. It was a great home base for my visit to Edinburgh. Very quite and peaceful. The bus stops in front of the guest house made getting back and forth from the city centre easy. Breakfast was great and included a nice selection.

We stayed just the one night and a key was conveniently left in a secure box which was easy to access. There were lots of places to eat near the Guest House. Our room was very comfortable with a large bathroom. The breakfast was fantastic and the hospitality of the host outstanding.

a late rooms booking, a good location, room was nice , clean comfortable, well appointed, BUT we saw no one all the time we were there, we arrived late afternoon. We got a text message with entry instructions, which to be fair were 10)% accurate and all worked well, no one about in the morning either, so key just left....
