Reviewed 31 August 2012

The stay was amazing from the moment we arrived to the time we left.
Eamonn was a top bloke, made us feel welcome on arrival and does a top breakfast.
The location is a short cab from Edinburgh Waverly station and about a 25 minutes walk from the edge of the city.

We only had 1 night in Edinburgh ( during festival month) and the Strathallan was great!
It's a short taxi ride, only £6, from Waverely station. Or if you don't mind the walk, in which you do get to see alot of the smaller side streets, performers etc it's a good 25 minutes.
The room my partner and i had was very spacious, with tv, wifi and a large bathroom with bath tub.
Breakfast again was amazing. Lots of variety with cereal, youghurts, fruit, croissant and a full hot breakfast too.
The only negative? That there weren't any rooms available to stay in the following week!!
Definitely recommend the stay!

I stayed here with my dad whist attending an interview with Edinburgh Uni. Great location, very helpful hosts, really lovely house, clean, spacious and the food was great!! As we were unsure of the location of the uni campus the hosts even searched online and printed out maps to show us! Very very helpful. They even arranged for a taxi to collect us on the morning of the interview, allowed us to check out late and return to the house to change clothes and collect bags. Can't praise them enough. They took some of the stress out of a rather stressful time! Thanks to them all!!!

I very much enjoyed my stay at this guest house. Our room was comfortable, the breakfast plentiful and tasty, and quiet at night. Our host was helpful and friendly. A good location, too.

We really liked the place. Very co-operative and hospitable people. Freshly cooked breakfast with good vegetarian options as well. Its in a very convenient location. The house is very nicely done up and its a perfect combination of an at home feeling with the required privacy. We are so glad that we stayed at Strathallan.

I have stayed at the Strathallan about 20 times over the years, and it never disappoints. Rooms are spotlessly clean, showers hot (no bathtubs) welcome friendly, a bus stop outside the front door (10 minutes to the Royal Mile) - and one of the best cooked breafasts you'll get anywhere. Prices, especially outside high season, are extremely good value. Rooms are single, double and family. Occasionally, when the Strathallan has been full, I have tried other B&Bs in the area, but none matches it. (Indeed, some fall a long way short!)

There are a number of good, moderately-priced restaurants in the area, and some nice pubs and coffee bars. It's a studenty type area, and very friendly.

Room Tip: As usual, a room at the back is quieter, and you get a view of the Pentland Hills.
