“Excellent Value”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

From the moment we arrived you were made to feel very welcome. Nothing was to much trouble.
The room and the facilities were excellent, even the buses stopped on the door step.
Breakfast time again was excellent, a good choice of cereals, fruit, and the cooked breakfast was 1st class.
We both had a wonderful stay in Edinburugh and would highly recommend the Granville. Thankyou :-))

I've stayed in many places in Edinburgh. However, this has to be at the top of my list. The location is amazing, only a 15 minute walk into the city centre. It's clean and comfortable. What more could you ask for?
The owners are a lovely couple too, I was greeted with a warm welcome on arrival, and the hospitality was second to none.
I totally recommend this place, and I shall stay there again on my next visit.

Location: The neighborhood is quaint and surrounded by several other B&Bs. It is a 30min walk to the Castle/Royal Mile area so that is not ideal. It is also a 20min walk from the airlink bus stop so if you have big luggage getting there is a hassle due to transferring buses or hailing a taxi.

Room: The room was cramped as expected, but very clean. Everything worked and the bed was comfortable. Had a bit of an issue with the water temp on the last morning, but that was all.

Breakfast: The menu was good as well as the food. They had a few take away items as well.

Service: This is where they lost us. We had to wait over 30min for someone to show up and let us in (we arrived after check in time) so we sat in the heat with all of our luggage wasting time we needed for sightseeing. Then when we wanted to ask the attendant questions the second afternoon they were nowhere to be found. Everything else was easily dealt with, but this is unacceptable for a place that caters to foreign travellers.

We stayed for two nights in early March 2014.
The Granville Guest House owner welcomed us on our arrival. The double room we were shown to was compact with a high ceiling and had a shower/toilet room built into one corner. Despite the feeling that everything was crammed in, the room was clean, well decorated and comfortable. There was plenty tea and coffee in the tray, a t.v. and excellent free WiFi. There were no coat hangers in the room, but had we needed them I'm sure the host would have obliged.
My wife needed to use an iron and a hair dryer while there. Both were supplied straight away with no fuss.
The room we had was on the ground floor near the front door. The owner apologised for any noise we may have but we never noticed any. This may be due to the bed which was exceptionally comfortable and gave us an excellent nights sleep.
We enjoyed the breakfast. There was juice and cerials etc laid out. We had read in TripAdvisor that the owner was Muslim, so there would be no bacon. No problem! The cooked breakfast was sausages, fried egg, potato fries and tomato. Delicious. I like a big breakfast, so all this along with the lovely fresh rolls, tea and toast set me up for the day.
The hotel is more than a short walk from the centre of Edinburgh but is particularly well situated for public transport. There is a bus stop for the city centre a few yards away and a stop across the road for the return. We used the 10 and 27 buses which both go into the centre and run every 10 minutes (slightly less frequent on Sundays).

The owner was a really nice bloke who couldn't do enough for his guests. We would stay here again.

Room Tip: If you are making more than two trips a day on the bus buy a day ticket from the driver. It works ou...

Just returned from a 2 night stay. We arrived and were welcomed by the owner.
We had to park in a very tight space to begin with, def not ideal if
You have kids. Still dont know the owners name, but he was nice enouhh
We were put into a double room with no ensuite and had to go up a flight
Of stairs to reach our shared bathroom. The lock on the bathroom door
Wasnt secure. The room was so small you could hardly manouvre
What I found strange is that not all rooms were occupied, why could we
Not be moved to an ensuite?
Cooked breakfast was def not a scottish breakfast, no bacon, no black
Pudding or haggis and the cardinal sin, no tottie scones??? 2 sausages
1 fried egg, 1 hash brown, mushrooms and beans. Sausages were that
Bad, next day I asked for just scrambled egg, to be fair he did make really
Nice eggs, not sure how we were charged same price though as a room with
Ensuite?
Nice guy but could do better

Room Tip: Make sure you ask not to be out in room 3
