We stayed at the Sherwood Guest House for three nights at the start of a trip to Scotland. Vivienne is a gracious host and helped us a lot with restaurant recommendations and advice regarding restaurants. Breakfast was very good, with a selection of cereals, cold cuts, vegetables, cheeses, yogurts, hard-boiled eggs, etc. We had a room on the front of...

Marcus thank you so much for your lovely review. It was a pleasure to meet you both during your visit to Scotland and enjoyed the vibrant busy city life of Edinburgh. Being located south of the city centre on a major bus route has great advantages. Vivienne

We stayed 5 nights at the Sherwood Guest house. Vivenne was a wonderful host. Full of knowledge and information. She was kind and welcoming. Loved joking around. My husband asked for mustard with breakfast. She laughed and went to her home to get it for him and it was waiting every morning after that. Breakfast was so good and plentiful....

We stayed here for three nights (father visiting his daughter studying in Scotland). It was simply great. Vivienne is one of a kind, very friendly, very helpful, with a marvelous sense of humor. The rooms were spotless, but not sterile like some hotel rooms. The breakfast, although continental, was generous. Vivienne immediately repaired the lamp we broke and even helped...

We stayed for three nights and couldn't fault it. Had a separate private bathroom which, though small, was nicely done up. Breakfast was really nice. Vivienne was really helpful with directions and ideas on what to do. Definitely have a read of the book she provides as it does have some very useful tips. Will be returning here next time...

A group of six of us stayed in two rooms (three people per room) for two nights at end of our long road trip through Scotland. First off the owner, Vivienne, was very responsive via email and helpful in time leading up to our stay. Secondly, the continental breakfast was excellent. Not just rolls and cereal but full selection of...

Thank you so much for your wonderful review and can I say what a pleasure it was to meet you and your family and friends. I should perhaps explain the 'how to flush' system as I know the UK systems are very different! Vivienne

We found this little gem on Hotels.com. Out of all the B&B's we feel so lucky to have stayed at this one. Vivienne was a wealth of knowledge. My husband wanted mustard with his breakfast and she went to her own refrigerator to get it. She went above and beyond for us. The B&B was charming a bit away from...

Well run by Vivienne who looked after us very well, lots of local information available. Bus stop a few yards down the road so no need to drive. Restaurants and pubs nearby. Our room was small but comfortable and had everything we needed.

I would and I will recommend this place to anyone who wants to stay in Edinburgh! Very good location, about 25 minute walk to the City Centre or if you don't want to walk there's a bus stop right outside the house. Love the newly decorated areas like the breakfast room. Very well equipped rooms and the beds are very...
