“Charming guest house!”
Reviewed 1 August 2014

We stayed at Andy and Karen's guest house from July 23-25 2014. They are wonderful hosts and their guest house is very nicely decorated, very clean and the breakfast that is included was very tasty. The waitress was also very kind and accommodating. It is located in a nice area of Edinburgh with a nice walk through the park to the waterfront. Andy was even there to help us make our way back to the guest house when we were unsure of which bus to take back, we gave him a call and he was so gracious to help us out. It is, for sure, a great place to stay!!!

My wife and I have stayed at the Sandaig Guesthouse many times. We recently enjoyed a four night stay and were greeted by new owners Andy and Karen. Andy was unbelievably welcoming and friendly and just couldn't do enough to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. Karen does all the hard work preparing great breakfasts! The young lady serving the full scottish breakfast [or in my wifes case - a smaller version ! ] was also very friendly and helpful. Easy on street parking and with Leith shore a five minute walk away with its array of bars and restaurants, not to mention Edinburgh centre itself, only a 25 min. walk away what more could you wish for?

I stayed here on two seperate nights in early July, having also stayed here in July 2013 and cannot recommend the hotel highly enough. The accommodation is of the highest quality and the staff excellent. The choice of breakfast fayre is wide and the portions, if anything, too large (however not large enough to put you off) but beautifully cooked and presented.

The location is ideal with a bus stop less that 100 yards from the door. The No 25 bus runs every 10 minutes and will have you in the heart of the city within quarter of an hour (the perennial roadworks on Leith Walk permitting)

I understand that the current owners are about to leave so it is to be hoped that the new proprietors can maintain the standard already set. Marina will be a hard act to follow

Room Tip: Room 5 at the top of the hotel has a view of the park (through the trees!) but is very quiet. Rooms...

Stayed in the Sandaig Guesthouse for 2 nights with my partner (Room No. 5), the room was great with a great view of Leith park. The bus stop was close to the guesthouse and the breakfast was superb with a fantastic menu to choose from. The girl serving the breakfast was extremely nice as well.

stayed for 1 night on a recent trip to the UK - nice place with comfortable rooms and good location. breakfast the next day was really nice in the lovely dining room. Not always someone there so we did have to email and call to arrange a time to check-in - they were very obliging and fitted in with us but was a bit difficult as we didn't have mobile phone coverage, small issue and otherwise a great stay

Facing the park, very comfortable beds, good size room, peaceful and only a short-ish walk to the city centre what more can you ask? Breakfasts were great and there is loads of free street parking outside. Superb

My husband and i stayed for 2 night in room 10.Visiting my son who lives in leith and perfect location for us as nice little walk across the park.Very easy to get into Edinburgh centre.
Room was comfortable and quiet and the sherry was appreciated.The loo was missing the flush button but not really a problem.Breakfast was lovely with plenty of choice and was lovely to get gluten free option and toast.Will definately return soon hopefully.

Room Tip: Room 10 is right up the top of the house so lovely view but quite a climb.
