Comfortable stay
Nice, clean and cosy rooms. Location also good as city center is not far and public transport is available. The host took personal care and breakfast also good.

Repeat Stay at Charming, Warm Guest House
This was my second time staying with Dorstan, and I can confidently say that I'll be back! The staff here is friendly, welcoming, warm, and so immensely helpful. Breakfast is delicious, the rooms are comfortable, and the street is so pleasantly quiet while still being just a short bus ride away from Edinburgh's main attractions. Highly recommend.

Mikael, ie3 night trip
Very good 8,0
The best assets of this guest house is its staff, great breakfast and price. The place is clean but a bit outdated. Like a previous reviewer, I had a very small room (with a bathroom) with very little space to move around.
