We only stayed on night at the hotel, but it was brilliant. The hotel is very cute and the staff are all very friendly. They even cook you breakfast in the morning and bring it to you - most hotels settle for buffet breakfasts. This was a nice touch. The staff showed us to our rooms when we got there and directed us to places we could eat/drink that night. Overall a brilliant experience.

We have very relaxin time at Sandaig Guest House - nothing seemed to be too much trouble and the only tiny issue we had was location, as would prefer to stay closer to Royal Mile.
Rooms are spacious and have everything you might wish for. We were very happy with breakfast and advise received at reception while checking in.
The guest house is not manned 24/7, but we didn't find this an issue at all. We have agreed arrival time with owner few days in advance and when we got delayed for few hours - took only one phone call to change our eta.
Off street parking is massive advance if you have a car, as it's nearly impossible to find space in Edinburgh. It's a bit of trek to city centre, but well connected via public transport or not too pricey cab ride.
I would definitively recommend Sandaig to anyone who wants relaxing stay in Edinburgh.

Stayed for two nights and had a superb double bedroom at the top of the house. No lift up but after the fantastic breakfasts every morning it gave a some good exercise to loose some of the weight we must have put on with such good food. Excellent choice of food too. Something for everyone. Room was very tastefully decorated and we enjoyed looking out over the other rooftops. We had a super welcome and nothing was too much bother. A great bus service just outside the door meant we could safely leave our car parked there all weekend and use the 24 hour bus ticket on them A snip for £3.50 each - which meant you could then go on any bus for the 24 hour period. Thanks for a lovely weekend. We will return.

Stayed here for two nights had a lovely double room on the ground floor with a great bathroom with bath and separate shower cubicle. The room had everything I needed. I was greeted on arrival and shown to my room, a nice professional welcome, I took advantage of the residents sitting room which is well equipped and comfortable. I could not ask or more and will certainly try to book again when next in Edinburgh

We stayed here for 2 nights as a family and a child of 10, our room was perfect for our needs and the breakfast was excellent and served by Nicolette who was extremely polite and attentive. Excellent location on bus route for ease of accessing Edinburgh city centre and was able to leave the car on street outside with no parking charges. We had two meals out in Leith the first one at Mintleaf Indian/Thai which was excellent and the second night at Guilianos Italian which also did not disappoint.

Room Tip: We had a room 3 at the front of the property with one double and a single bed for our son which was...

Went to the hotel last week. Very pleased with it, owners and staff extremely pleasant.
Breakfast was delicious with a great choice for such a venue.
Room standard was pretty high although some of the decor was a bit dated. Didnt affect the stay though, bed was extremely comfortable, brilliant power shower and decent iPod dock and tv/DVD player.
