“Nice little gem in the centre of Edinburgh”
Reviewed 18 May 2014

Nice friendly guest house, much better than a clinical feel of a larger chain. Great breakfast options, room could have done with being a bit bigger.
The best bit about this place is the location, only minutes from Princes Street and so central that we didn't use the bus once. Friendly yet unassumingly staff.

Watch out for the hot tap water, it could scald if you are not careful.

Room Tip: Don't ask for rooms 1 -4 they are in the basement

The location is great - walking distance to the royal mile and new town area. Breakfast was simply lovely. The staff was unfailingly friendly and polite. I wouldn't say it felt personal, but the place was definitely clean and efficiently run. Downsides: we were awoken one morning at 5am for 45 minutes of dance music before someone tracked down the cause of the disturbance. The smell of breakfast seems to linger all day.

Clean and large rooms, friendly staff, good breakfast! We had a group of 10 in a quadruple room and a family room, loads of space and comfortable beds. Nice than expected and very good value for money. Short walk into the city centre to all the bars and pubs but on a quieter street than the rest

We stayed with our children for 4 nights. Location was very good. Being in New Town allowed easy access to all the things we wanted to see and do while in Edinburgh (bus service was within an easy walk). The staff were all very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was wonderful and filling -- in fact, it was probably the best breakfast we had during our 8 days in Scotland. WiFi worked well -- this was important as my husband needed access to the internet for work.
We were in room 14 and the bathroom was tiny (not a problem but just wanted those with size issues to know) and there was no real delineation between the shower and rest of bathroom so, despite the shower curtain, much of the floor was wet after a shower. Note: based on pictures of other rooms, this does not seem to the case in all the rooms.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will recommend to others.

Large windows provided a really nice light room. Friendly staff even the painter who was chatty and apologetic if slightly in the way. Spacious room and adjoining bathroom, great shower which more than made up for not having a bathtub! Good breakfast and a great base to explore Edinburgh's delights! Recommend it!

Have just come back from a two night stay in Queens Guest House and it was lovely. Spotless clean and what a lovely room. The breakfast was delicious and we were so central to everything. Staff could not do enough for us. The only thing I would say if you take the car it is not easy to find a space during the day. You would probably have to park in a multi-story which was about 15 minutes away. We were very lucky as we found a great traffic warden who showed us a placed to park, whereby we left the car there for two days without paying a penny. How lucky can you get.

Room Tip: We were in room 5 which was the disabled room. It was massive and had everything you needed.

The hotel is in a great location for the castle and the royal mile. The wonderful staff even helped with our laundry as we had been traveling for quite some time. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone.
