“good stay”
Reviewed 7 August 2013

Nice guesthouse, in a calm neighbourhood but with easy access to downtown Edinburgh. The owner was a bit disorganised and chaos was everywhere, but hey, so is our own house too sometimes :) It just makes you feel right at home. The rooms were spacious, only we had asked for a room with a double bed and a single bed, and were given a room with three separate single beds. Not a big issue, but as we asked about it at the end our stay, the response was merely, "Oh my, I must've given you the wrong room keys by accident...". Owner was very helpful and chatty. Breakfast was plenty. Be prepared to climb to sets of steep stairs with your luggage. You can park your car in the street for free, but there isn't always a free space.

This was a lovely B&B in a great location in Edinburgh. The hostess was a very friendly, welcoming and extremely helpful. The rooms were clean, beautifully decorated and had everything we needed. The breakfast was great with lots of choices. If you are planning a trip to Edinburgh this is a great place to stay and very good value.

My friends and I recently stayed at the lovely Rosevale B & B. The owner was very welcoming. Our room was bright, clean and included tea and coffee making facilities, hair dryer and free WiFi. There was plenty of choice at breakfast. I would certainly recommend the Rosevale to anybody and will most certainly know where to stay next time I visit Edinburgh. Thankyou for your hospitality.

We stayed at this B&B in Edinburgh for 2 nights. The B&B begins from the first floor of a pretty Victorian house. We were four adults and had one twin and one double room located on the second floor of the house. The rooms were a decent size (the twin room bigger than the double, but the bathroom in the double bigger than the twin). Both had smallish windows with a view of houses around and Arthur's seat in the distance. The rooms were very basic, but had all amenities. The beds were very comfy and the room heated. Soap and bath gel were provided.
What really made this place special though was the host, Catriona, who really did her best to see that we were comfortable. We had arrived with inappropriate clothing (it wasn't supposed to be this cold in May) and she lent us some coats for the rain. She was very helpful in guiding us to places we wanted to see and the best routes to get there as half the roads in Edinburgh were blocked off. Also, she was very accommodating when we had a change in our plans at the last minute.
The breakfast was sumptuous and you get a range of full Scottish to eggs and some vegetarian options too along with the usual yoghurt, cereal and fruit.
The B&B is about a 15 to 20 minute walk to the city centre, but there are a number of buses that go every 15 minutes or so. A plus point about staying at Rosevale (or any one of the numerous B&Bs in this area) is the free on-street parking.

Lovely place to stay. I stayed for a week with my partner and we were pleasantly surprised with the high quality considering it is 2 stars. There is Freeview, and WiFi! Tea and coffee making facilities, hairdryer. The owner is so lovely and helpful.
We walked to town everyday, though buses run regularly anyway. It's situated off a busy road in a peaceful area.
Our room was a decent size, all we needed and more. Very happy.
The breakfasts were yummy and kept us going.
No complaints, especially with Arthur's Seat as our room window view.

Really good place, nice and quiet room. The owner is really nice and helpfully. She made a breakfast for us the night before we left because we leaved early and she booked the taxi for going to the airport. Nice breakfast and full of choice. easy to go to the city center, lot of buses and regulary. The room are clean and tidy with everything you need.
