We spent one night here and loved every minute - It's literally everything you could ever want in a (very) reasonably priced Guesthouse. free parking, 5 mins from beach, great house full of character and rooms that blew us away! Capturing that elusive balance between stylish and cozy just perfectly, they were a treat. Free wifi, roomy with high ceilings, amenities all in place, nice TV, great comfy bed....Added to this was a delicious and really well-presented breakfast (with welcome flexibility on times) and a general warmth emanating from the lovely owners, who again get it just right by being friendly and interested in you, without being invasive or overbearing whatsoever.

As other reviews have outlined, the location is great as you're on the lively Portobello Road, full of shops and life. We hopped on the bus for 90 seconds (well, the weather was foul!) to eat a superb pub meal. (I forget the name but it came up straight away on a search engine search but we had a truly brilliant Burger & Fish n Chips!) The bus can also take you in to the city centre in about 20 mins.

Overall staying at the Abercorn Guest House was an absolute treat, we would be back in a flash if nearby again. Why does anybody bother with bland chain hotels when you can have this experience at such a reasonable price? More fool them, better kept a secret maybe? :-)

My husband booked a long weekend in Edinburgh for my Xmas present, and boy did it deliver! We could have stayed closer to town but if we had done so we wouldn't have discovered this little gem of a guest house. The owner, Angela, is a chatty, friendly owner who did us the massive favour of letting us check in early (we arrived at 9 due to early flight and they happened to have our room ready), recommended places to eat and drink nearby, breakfasts were amazing, and the room was beyond comfortable! They even were happy to let me sleep most of a day (and forego cleaning) as I caught a cold and felt awful for one day, anticipating our breakfast order the next day. Free wi-fi, good bathroom, tea and coffee facilities, the place was brilliant, plus well within budget (a bargain really!). Even let us leave our bags whilst we carried on exploring after our check out time. Thank you so much!

Me and my wife stayed here for a weekend break, a truly wonderful experience! The setting as you enter the garden through the big white gate is fantastic, giving a great preview of what awaits. The room we had was beautifully decorated, spacious, cosy and with a great comfy bed. Breakfast each morning was lovely, cooked to perfection and accompanied by fresh coffee.

The location is great, Portobello sea front and promenade is a lovely part of Edinburgh, well worth a morning stroll (look out for the little green van!). Buses into town are plentiful too.

And finally, a word for the hosts - lovely, friendly, welcoming. Altogether a fantastic weekend, we will be back!

Booked last minute and was lucky to get a cancellation of rooms. Arrived and was made to feel most welcome, hosts really friendly. Rooms lovely and really clean. Luxurious fixtures and fittings made it feel really special.
Breakfast fresh and a good quality of food and tableware. Definitely recommend this and will return.

My wife and I stayed here for a couple of nights for my birthday. The rooms were beautifully decorated and the hosts were very welcoming. The breakfast was excellent and the host brought us some coffee on arrival.

You can park in the street for free and there was a bus stop just outside the guest house which takes you into the city centre. The buses run 24hrs a day.

We had a really comfortable stay at a great price and will definitely be back.
