I have stayed at Auld Reeki many times, on business & with my wife and family. You couldn't do better anywhere in Edinburgh. Unfortunately last year I had massive heart surgery as an emergency the weekend I was going to stay again. A year on and I'm much better now and hoping I will soon be able to visit again....

Great Guest House. Room was large, clean and well equipped. Breakfast was wonderful and the hosts Rhona and Brian are great friendly people. Location is only a mile from the city centre and bus stops are right outside giving easy access into town. Would love to visit again soon.

Rhona was even kind enough to lend us money for the bus as we had no change and the weather was terrible! Thank you for everything and we...

There is no shortage of similarly profiled properties in this residential area on the southside of the City. The location here is very good, on the main road (but quiet) and...

Breakfast was lovely and a real start to the day. The room was clean and equipped with everything you will need to make your stay comfortable. As a self proclaimed...
