Wonderful room. Spacy and a very high ceiling. Our room faced the busy street but we can´t say it disturbed us much. And this way we had a nice view over Arthurs Seat! The room had a loo and a shower in two separate small rooms. They were really cramped but clean and fresh. The breakfast was nice and well... More

We spent three nights at the Ascot Guest House and had a very comfortable time. Our hostess, Julie, was lovely and nothing was too much trouble for her. Our room was large and well appointed and breakfast was plentiful and set us up well for the day. A bus stop is situated right outside the house which is ideal for... More

Good location about 20 minutes walk from the city centre with a bus stop directly outside for a frequent service if you prefer. Banks, pubs, restaurants, shops etc. are within 10 minutes walk, although we found better quality as you get closer to town. The guest house is on a very busy road so expect some traffic noise especially if... More

We had a 3 night stay in July 2014. The owners were welcoming, helpful and gave good advice on where to go in Edinburgh. The walk from the house into town was not too difficult, but there are buses just outside if you want to catch the bus. The nearby pub, The Salisbury Arms had excellent food and was recommended...
