This really is a lovely place to stay. We were greeted at the door like friends and nothing was too much trouble. Our hostess made us feel so relaxed and 'at home'. The whole house was spotlessly clean and the ample breakfast was cooked perfectly. When we asked about buses into the city she even checked on the Internet to... More

Stayed at this lovely guest house on 18/11/16. Nothing too much trouble for the owners. Lovely greeting on arrival and a fond farewell on leaving. Room very clean, spacious and fit for purpose.

Very friendly staff, very clean and fantastic breakfast. The bed was a bit on the hard side, but with a fantastic breakfast waiting every morning, we didn't mind. The bathroom was clean and fresh. I loved that you could save your towels for the next day.

The hosts are superb and the hostess in particular is chatty and a sweetheart! The hotel is located a couple of miles from the famous Royal Mile but is very conveniently connected through a 5 minute bus trip. The place in itself has only got a couple of rooms, but the warmth of the hosts makes it a large place... More

Also, this is a good location for those staying longer on business or to explore the city.... More

This is the best Guest House (B & B) we experienced in 24 days of travelling in U.K. The host was very well organised, with tour/bus information at her fingertips. No need to use your car just catch bus around corner to City Centre. Information about what bus provided by Host Irene. (its very simple). Further alternative "dining" places provided... More

We were warmly welcomed and our stay was an absolute pleasure from start to finish. Visiting Edinburgh for my daughter's graduation, we're so pleased to have found Sonas. Comfortable beds, quiet room with a view, and immaculate bathroom. Breakfast was just right. Nothing too much trouble. The whole place had a real cared-for feel, and our host, Christie, was so...
