Stayed here five nights and very glad I did. The owner, Andy, made checking in really easy and the rooms were immaculate with a nice welcome bottle of sherry. The breakfast menu is full of options, so you can try something different each morning. Be sure to try the haggis and black pudding at least once. Being in Leith, you...

Clean and comfortable. Great location. Fab breakfast. Very quiet even though you are on a main road. Lovely large comfy bed. Andy your host is very welcoming and helpful. A few steps outside and there is the bus stop. No 25 into Edinburgh. Easy as that. Very enjoyable.

This is an interesting place . No staff working 24/7 so you let yourself in and find your room.I must say it was well thought out and cosy and furnished with thought.

Lovely room and a fabulous breakfast with many options including vegetarian and other dietary needs. Easy access to downtown via the #25 bus (frequent service and night service too) to Edinburgh City Center 15- 20 minutes away. See a real neighborhood in...

A comfortable stay and great value for money. Simple system for getting access on arrival. Our room was quite small but had en suite facilities. It lacked a comfy seat but was fine otherwise. The breakfast choices were good and service excellent. Our room had a nice view over Leith Links. From the Guest House it is an easy walk...

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. The opportunities: - the breakfast was the most disappointing I've...
