Great place, with beautiful rooms and a really really nice athmosphere. Located in the city centre of Edingburgh makes it easy to get around. The breakfast included in the cosy backgarden is the top og the cake:) definitelly recommend going there.

The Classic Guest House is a bit more expensive than the average for the area but you definitely get what you pay for: great rooms, excellent bathrooms and very good breakfast. Everything is very well decorated with a lot of good taste. The hosts are also very friendly and will provide you with great info to get around town. Although...

The Classic House in New Town Edinburgh was a delightful old townhouse converted to a B&B, and the owners were very helpful, pleasant, and prepared and served a wonderful breakfast. I would recommend it and stay there again.

We originally planned to stay in Edinburgh for 2 nights (ended up being 4). Emad offered us a 2bedroomed/2 bathroomed apartment with lounge/dining room plus kitchen only 3-4 minutes walk from his guesthouse. It was a fantastic stay for us, very very comfortable, extremely secure with private parking. Thank you Emad, the weather proved to be very cold and wet...

We stayed one night and it was generally nice. We were in room one which overlooks the road. The bed is 2 singles together but very comfy. The website says that all rooms are en-suite but ours wasnt although it has a very small private shower room. Breakfast was nice but pretty crowded as there is a limited serving time...

classichouse50, Owner at Classic Guest House, responded to this review

The comments regarding the website have been enlightening. The website does not in fact state that ALL rooms are en-suite, however, it does imply that this is the case. We have now contacted our web-designer to correct this and make clear that we have this one room that has ‘private facilities’. All customers are informed when booking this room that...

We arrived at the Classic Guest House Friday 30th December and had a very warm welcome from the owner Emad.

Everything that you need and want is available to you. The bathrooms are a little small...
