We were very impressed with the Sheridan Guest House in Edinburgh. We stayed in room 4 which was beautifully decorated with a king size bed. It was very spacious and comfortable. The breakfasts were also very good with a menu to choose from as well as cereals, cheeses and yogurts. I would highly recommend it to anyone.

This is a beautiful immaculately clean property in a good location for public transportation or even walking to downtown Edinburgh or Leith. As others have stated the best part is the wonderful owner Rowena! She was so warm and friendly and her breakfasts were to die for!

My husband and I stayed here during our recent visit to Edinburgh. There is a Lothian bus stop (number 11) across the street, which will give you easy access to and from the city center. Our room was very comfortable with a fridge, lots of outlets, and very quiet. The best part about this B&B is by far Rowena. She... More

The best part of this B&B is the wonderful host, Rowena. She was unfailingly cheerful, helpful and attentive to the smallest detail. We had a lovely large room in this beautiful house, thoroughly enjoyed the fantastic breakfasts cooked with really fresh ingredients and touch of individual flair, and chose to walk the convenient half hour to the city each day...

We liked the pancakes so much we asked for the recipe, which was conveniently provided to us by Rowena. The rooms were extremely clean. My wife is very picky about these things and... More

We had a very pleasant 5 night-stay at this little B&B. Breakfast was excellent, and rooms were clean and nice. It's located in Leith, so we used bus to get around, about ten minutes to town. Walking takes around 40 minutes. The bus stop was right outside the hotel, and it was easy to navigate the system. If you're ok... More

An elegant Georgian house restored in a contemporary style while retaining the unique character of the building.

It is just a short walk away from The Royal Yacht Britannia, Playhouse Theatre, and the Botanic Gardens, while the excellent sights, restaurants and bars of Edinburgh City Centre are just a short bus or taxi ride away. ... more   less
