“Great breakfast”
Reviewed 23 February 2014

Lovely large room in basement - warm comfortable and clean.
Breakfast served promptly and freshly made every time.
Friendly and helpful people..
The furnishings were better in this room rather than previous room but shower needs a bit of TLC
Nice thing is they will do something with it in the future.

Room Tip: Downstairs in basement

We had a fantastic stay at this lovely guest house. The rooms very lovely and clean. it is a gorgeous old Victorian building. The owners Kay and Kenny were so accomodating. The breakfast was amazing you got a lovely full cooked breakfast as well as a wide selection of cereal, fresh fruit, yoghurts, cheeses and juices. You could also have as much toast and tea or coffee as you wanted. It is a short walk in to town. It was so nice to stay somewhere that you felt so welcome. A home away from home.

Just wanted to say a big thank you to Kay and Kenny for their hospitality during our 4 day stay in their guest house. Everything was fine, big and spacious family room, good breakfast, tea/coffee at hand, friendly people all at a short walking distance from the heart of Edinburgh!

The Ardenlee has an annex (Eyre) it uses for overflow. The rooms in the annex are tired and need updating. The shower room/ Toilet in our room was pretty grotty. You could see the mould everywhere and the rot from leaks was plain to see. The beds were ok, but you could see the mattresses are on their last legs. The rest of the facilities were acceptable. It is a 10-15 minute walk to Princes street ( Uphill) so it is pretty central.
The Breakfast (at Ardenlee) was good and the people were very friendly and accommodating: they went out specially to get my daughter something she liked for breakfast. Contacting the accommodation at night is not easy if a problem arises. The parking arrangements are extremely tight and only room for 2-3 cars (small) packed in tightly.

For the money i would have stayed at a 3-4 star Hotel if one had been available. If it wasn't for the people working there, this review would have been more scathing.

Went to Edinburgh for the weekend to watch the Open. The rooms were fully booked but the guest house also owns an appartment 20yards down the road. What a great choice too! Very high ceilings, spacious rooms and a fully functional appartment for self catering. Very friendly owner too and a nice breakfast included

Room Tip: Try the appartment for more space!

I have been a long term resident at the Ardenlee and can highly recommend it if you are visiting Edinburgh. The rooms are spacious, the breakfasts good and the hospitality excellent - all this at a very competitive rate.

I stayed in room 6 of the Ardenlee Guest house for a few weeks last summer when I was in Edinburgh for work. All I can stay is that it was beautiful, breakfast was amazing, and the location is perfect for exploring Edinburgh. Kay who runs the guest house is lovely and so helpful. I would return if I ever needed somewhere in Edinburgh again!

Room Tip: Room 6 was great for me! Very large room, also facing the back of the building so nice and quiet.
