Just back from this quirky B+B after a 2 night stay. Very quirky with mismatched crockery etc. The fact that its was a meat free house had no bearing on my stay there. Cathy was great and very helpful. About 15-20 minute walk to the main attractions. Loved it - will be back

Our first time staying here and couldn't fault it. A very comfortable room which was at the back of the house so no noise from the road. The owner, Cathy, was very pleasant and welcoming, and the breakfast was delicious. Fried halloumi and tattie scones, mmm. The location is very convenient for the city centre - just a short bus...

Claymore is a very cute guest house, with comfortable rooms and an incredibly accommodating, cheerful host. The breakfast was wonderful, and the location is within a short bus ride from the city center. I highly recommend staying here!

We stayed here for the first time, this weekend and received a very warm welcome from Cathy. Our room (No. 6) was at the top of the house, and at the back, so nice and quiet. Decor is quirky and beautiful; the room had a nice shower and comfy bed. As vegetarians, we are used to nimimal veggie breakfasts in...

Another return visit to one of my favourite places to stay in Edinburgh. Warm welcome as ever and very good vegan breakfast. Location is close to work and the city centre, so ideal on all respects for work and evening in town. Looking forward to my next visit.

My wife and I had a very enjoyable three night stay in this excellent vegetarian and vegan friendly guest house. Cathy gave us a warm welcome and we appreciated her good nature, sense of humour, charm and easy going manner throughout our stay. The accommodation is a smart sandstone terrace house in a decent location, with an attractive flower and...

My boyfriend and I spent 3 wonderful days in this B&B. The breakfast was amazing, the room was comfortable and Cathy was very helpful and welcoming. Even our late arrival (after 10 pm) was no problem. I would recommend this B&B to everyone!

The guesthouse is warm and homely with stacks of books and boardgames. The food is AMAZING! best breakfast I've had at a hotel. You won't even need lunch if you are out seeing the city during the day. The staff were super helpful when we were planning our trips out and the bedrooms were large and comfortable. Id recommend this...

Stayed for 3 nights and would liked to have stayed longer! So welcoming to me and my 16 yr old son. Other hotels and B & B's advertised catering for vegetarians and gluten intolerance, but once we arrived there was no acknowledgement of being notified, and no effort to provide anything for me. Cathy went out of her way to...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are a 10-15 minute walk to Princes Street. We offer three things to our guests - enjoyable accommodation, warm and friendly atmosphere and good food and we do it with pleasure. Although our food is vegetarian and vegan, we have had many meat eating guests over the years and most of them have gone home happy! We welcome every kind of people and look forward to welcoming you. ... more   less
