Just ended a week long stay at this small B and B. Great location, close the city center. Bus stops just steps away and both train and airport close by. Vivienne, the owner, is warm, welcoming, has a great sense of humor. She was s wealth of information about places to eat, sights to see, etc. She seems to truly...

The room was very tastefully presented and the welcome and administration was excellent. The breakfast was excellent. The location is within a good walk to the centre of the city. Could not fault this Guest House.

Quite little, but very beautifully decorated room, clean bath room with shampoos etc, nice view. Excellent breakfast with fresh bread, croissants, fruits, berries, cold cuts, cheese... Very friendly hostess. Good location: very easy to take a bus to down town or just to walk there about 20 minutes.

Our room was compact (if your used to big plush rooms you'll probably need to pay more elsewhere) but it had everything you need for a short stay including a small en-suite comfy bed, small fridge and a fantastic continental breakfast in the morning.

Vivienne is a lovely host, the house is really beautiful and we enjoyed the classical music for the breakfast which was yummy! Our room was tiny and towards the street, I guess next time we'd try to book one to the other side as it can get a wee bit noisy 😂 overall we loved the house.

Thank you Karin for your lovely review. Sadly Georgian houses were not built with the largest of rooms but I'm delighted you enjoyed your stay. The windows at the front of the house are all double glazed and keep most of the street life at bay!! Next time - back of the house. See you again hopefully. Vivienne

Vivienne was such a wonderful, inviting, and friendly host. The place was very clean, the room was great, and all the amenities suited our needs perfectly. Vivienne made a wonderful breakfast, and the setting and atmosphere of the dining room was just perfect. My wife and I stayed in seven different places on a two week journey of the UK...

Sherwood guest house is a lovely place, not so far from the city centre (20 mins. walking, but there are a lot of bus lines passing just outside the guest house). Our room was comfortable with a small but cozy bathroom. The neighbourhood offers a lot of places to eat and have a good time. Vivienne is a perfect guest,...

My girls and I booked a trip to Edinburgh last year. I decided to book- based on reviews- with Sherwood Guest House. From the moment I booked, Vivian reached out via email, with a welcome note. She was extremely friendly, with lots of helpful tips to navigating the city. Towards our planned arrival, my mom decided to join, and after...

Just spent a very comfortable 2 nights (wish it had been longer) at the Sherwood. After a long walk on Salisbury Crags we took the bus into town, which was very easy. Breakfast was excellent and a really friendly atmosphere.

Owner was pleasant and kind throughout the stay. Breakfast was excellent with the continental breakfast being a real hit with the kids. Ideal location for travelling into town, only a 20 minute walk !
