My wife and I stayed at the Classic Guest House for three nights early July . Accommodation was very nice . Our room was a small double en suite and was very comfortable . A very tasty breakfast was served every morning . Would highly recommend the Classic Guest House .

It was the first time for my partner going to Scotland. I decided to treat him for his birthday. Our stay at Classic Guest House was excellent. The staff were very welcoming and friendly. Breakfast was amazing !!! It was close to amenities and bus service into city. We highly recommend anyone to stay there when visiting Edinburgh. We will definitely be returning next year. Thank you for a lovely stay Roy and Viv

My husband and I stayed here in June. The location was good, close to town but not right in the busy centre. It's a lovely building and the staff are all very friendly and sweet. Our room was gorgeous, apparently the best in the house and we believed it! I'd happily recommend and stay here again. It's run more like a (very) small boutique hotel, very professional.

Room Tip: Room A was the big front room downstairs!

We arrived early in the morning, in the midst of other patrons checking out - a very busy time - but the proprietor welcomed us warmly, filled our water bottles, explained how the transit system worked, and provided a great map directing us to the old city. He also suggested a superb restaurant for dinner and was most gracious throughout our stay. Breakfast was excellent, accompanied by soft classical music, and served in a sunroom overlooking a pretty garden. Our twin room on the top floor was cosy, clean, and comfortable. The skylight opened to allow as much air as we wanted and we enjoyed being able to look over the rooftops of neighbouring buildings. We also appreciated the blackout blind. Although we were facing the street and could hear traffic during the night, we slept well. Classic Guest House is beautifully decorated and maintained - highly recommended.

The proprietors are super nice and the breakfasts are always good and hearty. My room was cute; it was on the top floor and had a skylight / attic window. When my shoes got soaked through by a sudden summer squall, the lady of the house was nice enough to turn on the heater in my room so I could dry them out "gentle", as she put it. Sure enough, they dried well. The house is impeccably kept, and the neighbourhood as safe as any in Singapore's suburbs.

The only thing I could have wished for was a laundry service. Although the proprietor of the B&B did tell me where to go, a laundrette isn't that easy to find in Edinburgh.

Oh... another thing. When the Scots write 'walking distance', you might bear in mind that they are likely a hardier people than those who drive everywhere. It seems that 2.5km either which way is, to them, a reasonable distance to walk. I certainly didn't mind, but I was a little surprised at how long it took me to walk my way into the Royal mile on the first day - takes them 20 minutes, took me 35. I got better at it though.

This is the perfect B & B where the owners have thought of everything. Lovely place to stay. Room very bright and airy and spotlessly clean. Breakfast is served in a very pleasant conservatory and is cooked on request. Definitely recommend the "Classic" experience.
