We atayed there for one night only and could do the check-in ourselves. The room was cosy and very spacious. We had an external bathroom just for our room which was big and clean as well. The breakfast was good and the location perfect. Would stay again.

After reading the previous reviews we were looking forward to staying here for the night. We received a friendly welcome from who we think is the owner but she never introduced herself so we can’t be sure. First impression was it looked very basic and tired. On our way to our

Response from Edinburgh_Holiday_BB, Owner at Edinburgh Holiday Guest House
Responded 24 May 2018
I have expected a bad review from you after you left yesterday. We don’t want to see any unhappiness between our guests and us. But... In fact, we agreed to allow you to leave your luggage in a specific room on the ground floor. However you just left them in your room and gone without any notice. It is commonly known that we need to clean and make up the room before new guests come. I cannot believe you just simply left. Secondly, my wife has told you that we need to be away by 5pm. You agreed to come back to pick up your stuff at 4:30pm. But you were back around 5:15pm. Third, you didn’t even notify us but directly went to the room and used the bathroom that we have already cleaned. It is not your room any more after check out. We have to clean the bathroom again for extra 20 mins. Yes, we were annoyed when you were late and told us you had used the bathroom. Have you ever thought about it from our position? Bad attitude for not respect for our work. I would accept your apologies if you wish to make. Please think a bit more about other people’s work and efforts.

"If in a group go to hotel it will be cheaper and better."
"We had a room on main road , but this was still quiet"
"Any there all clean and bright"
"I don't think you could go wrong in any room in this Guest house. Very comfortable and in immaculate condition!"
"Stayed in room 1. Beautiful big bay window facing onto a busy road. Secondary glazing fitted which helped as guest house is on the main route to hospital hence lots of ambulances."
