Stayed 2 nights and i would go back! The rooms were very clean and comfortable. The owners couldnt be more helpful and pleasant! Location is good not in town but just a short walk to it. Plenty little shops and pubs near by. Would definatly stay here again.

KIm and her husband couldn't have been more helpful. Our room was so clean and well maintained. The location was fantastic. The host's directions for our walk up to Arthur's Seat were spot on. The bus trip into town was easy, convenient and very affordable with DayRider Ticket.

Stayed for a few nights with my daughter for the Edinburgh Fringe. Excellent and would stay again. The staff could not have been more friendly or helpful, the room was kept immaculately clean and breakfast was lovely. Can't imagine why you'd pay more for a more central location- a dayrider bus ticket costs £3.50 and the service is regular. You're...

We recently stayed here as we were visiting for the Fringe. I booked the room way in advance and mainly chose this place as it looked nice and was one of the cheapest I could find for during this festival period. We ended up adding an extra night on nearer the time of us staying so on the first night...

I am pleased you found the room comfy, and the tourist information beneficial I am sorry you felt your eggs were only warm, I am a bit confused by this, as they are cooked only when the guests come down for breakfast, however if the guests are delayed for any reason (which is not very often) the eggs are stored...

Very cute guest house. Nice rooms, very clean, and very friendly/helpful staff. Quiet street, a bit of a walk to the city center, but it's not bad if you don't have luggage (if you do I recommend taking a bus, which stops right around the corner). If you don't mind being away from the heart of the city, I definitely...

Thanks for your nice comments & taking time out to write a review, yes we are a little further from the city centre, however it can be a big advantage, especially at festival & hogmany time, we are not disturbed in the middle of the night with the noise of partygoers singing ha ha!

Sydney, Australia

Clarin House is convenient to the main tourist sites (an easy 20 minute walk) and near good local restaurants (5 to 10 minutes). The beds were comfortable and the room spotless, but it was difficult to find somewhere to put the 5 decorative cushions per twin bed. The main problem we had was the shared bathroom. Though probably not ordinarily...

Spent 6 nights in a double room with ensuite bathroom. Quiet street, which is appreciated, but at the same time it's a short walk to the bus stop that takes you quickly to the city centre (or you can walk in about 20 minutes). Clean new furnishings. Nice breakfast. Very friendly and helpful staff. Would not hesitate to stay here...

I happened by the Clarin Guest House searching for an available B&B late one evening in June 2013 (in many places in Scotland it is hard to find a last minute B&B during season.) Nothing fancy here but nice, clean room on a quiet enough street in an older, well maintained home, with perfectly adequate breakfast and helpful innkeepers, TV...
