I visited Scotland for the first time last month with friends. We stayed at Blossom House on recommendation. It was perfect for our needs. It is ideally located on a main bus route which meant access about town was easy. The staff were warm and friendly on arrival. They helped us with bus tours and info. The room was simple...

We arrived early and were given access to our room even though it was well before check in time. Normally we are made to wait in other places. The stairs might be difficult for some people but I loved the classic feel of the place. Especially as the rooms felt modern and well kept. The shower room was a bit...

Room was clean and nice to stay in, enjoyable stay and kind owners. The location just 20 minutes from the centre of town was easy to access walking, by bus and by taxi. I left my coat at the guesthouse and they were great in getting it back to me by post

Very small car park, tiny rooms, ours was not en-suite, in need of a good clean and upgrade. Breakfast was cereals and toast! Expensive for what it is. Not good! The whole property is in need of modernisation

We are no new comers for Edinburgh but this was our first time at Blossom Guest House. We found this guesthouse very nice. Service was good and a healthy continental breakfast gives you the energy you need!! Clean rooms and a good shower with hot water when you need it. Keep it up and hope we shall see you again!!...

3 nights last week, a few minutes by bus to the city centre but much cheaper, lots of buses go that way. Get off at Salisbury Place. Room was ensuite with high ceilings and quiet as overlooked garden. Staff were friendly and helpful and breakfast was fine - yoghurts, cheese, pastries, toast and cereals. Parking looked quite tight but didn't...

Good location, excellent service. Free wifi internet, decent breakfast. I would stay here again. The management is friendly and helpful. Area is close to busy road so it was easy to go to the City Centrum.
