                  Fab place to stay, Rhona is such a nice host, makes you feel very welcome. Easy to get into the centre with all the buses going by. Rooms are cosy and clean.

                  Wish breakfast ran a bit later though, between 8-9 is too early for lazy people like me! haha!

                  Auld Reekie Guest House is about 1 1/4 mile south of Waverley Train Station on the main road beginning at North Bridge (the road's name changes 6 times between the two points). It's actually a nice walk past lots of shops and restaurants, and a good way to experience a part of Edinburgh. The Guest House itself was kept immaculately clean, and the owners could not have been friendlier. The only shortcoming we encountered - which really was not a big deal - was an intermittent Wi-Fi signal in our room on the top floor. We definitely would stay here again!

                  Nice place to retreat from the clamor of the Golden Mile...hostess was personable and helpful in every way. The room had a definite VIctorian elegance. There were good restaurants within walking distance, and the location near the bus stop made it convenient to easily and quickly get into town.

                • Group of friends
                  9.6

                  Our hostess was fabulous. The room was comfortable and fairly large. The food was great. The location was in a quiet area but very convenient to the city center with buses running every few minutes.

                  Not a thing. We had a great time there.

                  Very hospitable and welcoming, excellent transport connections to centre of Edinburgh. Breakfast was great as well. Would be pleased to recommend and use again.

                  La nostra camera era molto piccola rispetto a come appariva nelle foto. Il lavandino del bagno era talmente piccolo che era diffficile lavarsi le mani e il viso ed era privo del miscelatore. La pulizia della camera era carente ed trovavamo residui degli ospiti precedenti. La colazione era scarsa. Ma l'episodio più serio è che se paghi con carta ci credito il conto viene maggiorato del 4%, non previsto da booking ma indicato solo via email dalla proprietaria dopo la prenotazione

                  Our room was very small compared to how it appeared in the photos. The bathroom sink was so small that it was diffficile wash hands and face and was devoid of the mixer. The room cleanliness was poor and we found residues of previous guests. The breakfast was poor. But the episode more serious was that if you pay by credit card, account is increased by 4%, not provided by Booked.net but given only via email by the owner, after reservation

                  We had a very friendly welcome, a comfortable room, and an excellent breakfast - the breakfast cook deserves a special mention for producing such excellent food, and everything was freshly cooked to order. It's easy to get to the city centre as a large number of buses stop nearby.

                  Rhona was really genuine & welcoming and clearly wanted us to enjoy our trip, nothing was too much trouble and the guesthouse itself was a beautiful little place with all of the home comforts you'd expect - Auld Reekie would be my first choice accommodation in Edinburgh.

                  Everything about our stay was fabulous. The accomodations, the breakfasts, the owners... everything. Rhona and Brian are excellent hosts, Rhona is a real hoot and lots of fun. I truely love the Scottish people and cannot wait to go back.

                  The room was clean and big and very comfortable.

                  The machine that was in the room for getting hot water for tea or coffee wasn't clean and unfortunately we couldn't prepare baby's milk

                • Single

                  Rhona was as lovely and as friendly as could be! The food was good, the garden view from my window was lovely, the room had great light and was cleaned daily. An absolutely lovely stay.
