Both Rowena and Tom are the perfect hosts. The location has convenient access to the center of Edinburgh and to the excellent restaurants in nearby suburban Leith. The accommodations are quiet and spotless. The breakfast is amazing and the knowledge and advice from both hosts is spot on. The Sheridan Guest House is a true diamond.

Next time we are in Edinburgh we will definitely be staying here again! Rowena is lovely nothing is too much trouble, I don't know where she gets the time to do everything she does, from the homemade cookies and preserves to the lovely garden and wonderful house, so much choice for breakfast and all locally sourced!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
An elegant Georgian house restored in a contemporary style while retaining the unique character of the building. Original artworks hang on the walls, Persian carpets provide a rich backdrop to the contemporary furniture and the food is always freshly home cooked and delicious. The Sheridan is sited to the north of Edinburgh's New Town, close to the vibrant port of Leith. 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
