AmarAgua Guest House
Ranked #35 of 394 Edinburgh B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 4 December 2013

AmarAgua is an elegant home with amazing hosts. Tony and Dawn-Ann provide wonderful service and their breakfasts were the best of any place we stayed on this trip. After learning that I had sprained an ankle, Dawn-Ann was ready with an ice pack. We felt so welcome at AmarAgua and highly recommend it to friends, family, and anyone else.

We stayed at AmarAgua on the recommendation of our travel agent and were not diappointed. It is a spotless, beautifully decorated Victorian town house. Dawn-Ann welcomed us at the door on our arrival with Edinburgh tourist brochures and a thorough explanation of the bus service and other things we neophytes needed to know about the city. She was easy to contact whenever needed by buzzer in the downstairs hall. We were lucky enough to find a parking spot on the street in front of AmarAgua and left our car there for our full two day stay.
Our room was the standard double en-suite, which was most comfortable, but a little small for our huge suitcases holding 3 weeks worth of clothes. We Canadians especially liked the heated towel racks! The coffee, tea and goodies in our room were yummy. Breakfast was delicious and Tony was a most congenial waiter. We agree with the other reviewers . . . Wish we could go back!

The AmarAgua is an elegant guest house, spotlessly clean and with wonderfully comfortable beds. Dawn-Ann and Tony are lovely people, superb hosts and they made us feel very welcome. They run the AmarAgua with a unique style and professionalism. We were in the room with the four poster bed and we had the best nights sleep away from home ever. Unfortunately due to work commitments we had to leave early but we will be back in 2014. Tony's breakfasts are fantastic, it was a lovely treat for me to have Eggs Benedict (a favourite of mine) and Paul enjoyed his Traditional Scottish Breakfast. The fruit, cereals and yogurt were wonderfully fresh and inviting. The rooms have every comfort that a visiting guest could require. Highly recommended, well done you two!

Room Tip: We had a room at the back which was quiet and comfortable. The Guest House is located in a cul-de-sa...

We have just returned from our fourth visit to AmarAgua and it certainly won't be our last. This guest house is fitted out to the highest of standards and well deserves its five star rating. Tony and Dawn-Ann are very friendly, have a vast menu choice for breakfast and give more than an adequate portion to set you up for the day.

Not too far from the city centre with frequent buses nearby. Can't fault the room, hosts or breakfast. I would echo what others have said and have no hesitation in recommending this guest house to others.
Will we be returning? You betcha.

Tony and Dawn-Ann are such gracious, friendly and helpful hosts, and they made us feel very comfortable. They provided all sorts of useful information about the city and area.

We occupied a beautiful, clean, comfortable room. Our room was on the front of the house, but the street is very quiet so this was no problem at all (and I awaken easily). Our room was well appointed in every aspect, including a blackout shade to block the early morning sunlight, although the room could have used brighter bedside reading light.

Each breakfast was excellent! We enjoyed something different from each other and different for each morning because everything was so delicious and beautifully presented.

The location is very good with a bus stop just around the corner to take you to the city center in 01-15 minutes and excellent restaurant in easy walking distance.

We highly recommend this B&B for anyone looking to stay at a great place while in Edinburgh. This should receive top ratings and recommendations in all guidebooks and reviews.

We were group of two couples who had booked a 3 night stay at Amaragua and approached the front door with a little trepidation, wondering if Amaragua would be as good as the reviews on Tripadvisor.

We rang the bell and the door was opened by Dawn-Ann with a huge smile and a lovely warm welcome. At that point we knew we had struck gold.

The rooms were excellent and very comfortable with everything you would need. The house is large and spacious in a pleasant, quiet street 10 minutes by bus from city centre. There is free on street parking, unlike most of the guest houses in the new town.

Breakfast is amazing with a wonderful choice and not just your standard Scottish Breakfast (which is available and excellent), but a different choice each day such as Eggs Benedict or pancakes with bacon mushrooms or porridge with blueberries and strawberries.

Dawn-Ann's husband Tony served breakfast and was charming, welcoming and informative.

We can't fault the Amaragua and would recommend it to anyone visiting Edinburgh.

Looking at possible golf trip next year, but don't tell Tony as he will want to join us

Thanks Dawn-Ann and Tony you really made our stay in Edinburgh
