Since first email, Cathy was really helpful and kind, and once you're here you feel like home. Shame we could not stay forever! Encantadora la dueña, incluso nos ayudó a llamar al cartero por un envío urgente que esperábamos. Wish we could be back soon! Ojalá podamos volver pronto!

Had an excellent few days stay during the Fringe. Superb breakfast & comfey bed. All within a short walk of all the Fringe action. We had a lovely stay and were well looked after by the owners who care about you and the planet.

Felt really welcomed at Claymore, she couldn't do enough for us, finding out info and booklets for us regarding where o go and what to eat. The room was large, tastefully decorated, clean linen and cleaned to a high standard. The toilet and shower were spotless, put my own bathroom at home to shame, so I felt very comfortable using...

Wonderful place. Cosy, warm,welcoming and a real treat to have the option of well cooked vegan food.Proper bed with cotton bedding and Ethical toiletries instead of wasteful chemically smelling sachets of useless preparations! Above all very friendly and homely. would definitely use this as a future place to stay when visiting Edinburgh

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are a 10-15 minute walk to Princes Street. We offer three things to our guests - enjoyable accommodation, warm and friendly atmosphere and good food and we do it with pleasure. Although our food is vegetarian and vegan, we have had many meat eating guests over the years and most of them have gone home happy! We welcome every kind of people and look forward to welcoming you. ... more   less
