A big thankyou to Marion and Norrie, both fantastic hosts, lovely guest house ideally situated for all the sites in Edinburgh. Room was very clean as was the rest of the house and breakfast spot on (loved the porridge and kippers) and very good value for money. Bed was very comfy, only slight disadvantage for light sleepers was the close proximity to a fairly busy road (we were in rm 1 at the front) but we only noticed this one night and doesn't detract from the whole stay.

We enjoyed our stay; the breakfast was very good and our hosts were very obliging and helpful. The room was innovative, with an interesting en-suite arrangement, but it served its purpose well. A good choice, at a reasonable cost. Parking could be a problem during a weekeday.

My husband and I spent two very pleasant nights at The McDonald Guesthouse. The place was homey but modern and our bed/bathrooms were very very clean. The owners, Marion and her husband obviously put alot of thought in creating the best possible guest experience. I appreciate the hotel-style touches like the recessed lighting and toiletries in the bathroom; fluffy pillows and beverages in our room complete with wi-fi and a small plasma cable tv. Marion offers you a choice of a full scottish breakfast (haggis optional) or a lighter continental breakfast. If you don't have alot of time in Edinburgh, you may need to know that the guesthouse is not located at the Royal Mile, but a 5-minute bus-ride or (15min slow walk) would take you there or to Prince Street. Even with just 2 days, I found that the travelling was perfectly fine as buses were many and frequent. Everything would have been perfect if I hadn't been woken up at 2am the second night. The wall between my room and the house next door was thin enough for us to hear a neighbour who probably had a couple of drinks before he came home. After telling his mates about his day, I think he went to bed and so did we. Overall the experience was great and we would certainly come back the next time we visit again.

Visiting Edinburgh and wanting to stay in the Leith Walk area, Marion and Norrie at the McDonald Guest House offered a warm and friendly welcome. The whole place is obviously well cared for and 'spic and span' throughout. Lovely breakfast and very comfortable, albeit short stay.
