We stayed in the Classic Guest House for Christmas Day 2021. It was incredible. The really beautifully personal touches made the day something really special. We have an extended patchwork family and everyone felt so Welcome and included. The hosts were so thoughtful in everything they did. From ensuring we sure there early to experience the whole Christmas experience: for homemade Swiss bread and roast ham; gift giving with their own families; getting comfy in matching Oodies. All the things that made it such a personally special experience. To add to that, the hosts kids were so incredibly welcoming and accommodating of our little toddler. She can be pretty demanding, but they really took the time to include them in everything. She loves them so much and cannot wait to visit again. The food was prepared by another guest and was spectacularly good, and the host complimented that with excellent drink pairing. The meal was prefaced by the most touching toast from a very special family member of the hosts. It brought a little tear to my eye. We ate and drank far too much, but there was little we could do to resist such incredible festive catering! After dinner, we were invited to join in some jokes. Not all of them great, but that was part of the charm. As the evening got later, we had some really lovely conversations and we felt we had genuinely met some new life long friends in the other guests. The night ended with music and laughter, as we helped build a drum kit and battered away on it whilst telling funny stories. Such nights are what life is all about, and I cannot thank the hosts, guests and everyone there enough for making Christmas 2021 an incredibly special one. 5 stars, will visit again. ❤️

We have just come back from a four night stay here and everything was superb. The hosts were extremely friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble for them. Emad advised us on everything we could ever need to know, from local eateries, which we tried two of and both were excellent to bus routes into town, which we used every day, its an ideal location to visit Edinburgh. We had a free parking permit, which enabled us to park outside. The breakfast was amazing, with a huge choice of continental, served buffet style to suit everyone's tastes. There was loads on offer, with an amazing variety of fresh fruits. The guest house was very clean and welcoming. Our room no. 3 was adequately sized with an ensuite shower room, all in working order and very clean. The bed was ultra soft and comfy, which under normal circumstances would have been ideal but my boyfriend is suffering with his back so not ideal but I loved it, the bedding and pillows were super snug and very clean. We had towel changes every day. W You couldn't want for anything more. Thankyou Fiona and Emad for a lovely stay and hope to see you again xxx

Easy to find, and parking was excellent. We had room 4 which was lovely, and the bed was exceptionally comfortable. The room was clean and spacious, and not at all tatty. It is so near the city centre that we walked home after the Fringe, a total bonus. The breakfast was lovely and there was lots of choice. The owners and staff are welcoming and I wouldn't hesitate to return.
