We stayed at Straven Guest House for several days in Sept. 2011 and we were so pleased with our visit. The location is fantastic, a short distance outside the city but the bus stop is just up the street and the bus stops there frequently. Portobello beach is just around the corner and having spent our days in Edinburgh it was very relaxing to return to Straven Guest House and go for a walk on the promenade and take in the sea air. Our room with en-suite was bright, clean and quite comfortable, also the bathroom lighting was the best that I have ever seen in a B & B. Mac & Marion were gracious hosts always friendly and attentive and provided a sumptuous breakfast. They were also were able to cater to a gluten and dairy free diet which was greatly appreciated.
