Murdo is a lovely host and the scottish breakfast was great. The room was small but cozy and clean. The guesthouse is located in a quite area and the bus for the airport stops just close by. Edinburgh old town can be reached by foot in around 20 minutes. Highly recommended.

We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 day stay in Edinburgh staying in the lovely Duthus Lodge. The lodges location makes it very handy to all the sights. The hotel was very well furnished and the rooms are very comfortable, with tea and coffee making (plus delicious biscuits) facilities- much appreciated after a long day exploring the city. The en suite bathroom...

We stayed with Murdo and Archie at the Duthus for three nights. He is such a kind man, and we really enjoyed talking to him. He is also truly accommodating. Archie is a nice dog, and we got to walk and play with him. The rooms were large and clean, and the house is quiet. There is a lovely community...

We stayed 1 night. It was a fantastic location along from Murrayfield. We were upgraded to a bigger room and the lodge was super clean and welcoming. After the rugby we popped in to heat up before heading out into the City. Breakfast was fantastic and we were treated to some new white pudding & black pudding as an added...

It was amazing staying at the Duthus, every people, and animal, were very nice to us and we loved staying here. We are a walking distance from everything and if you can't, you have a lot of bus stops in front of the house. It is definitly a great place to stay.

Arrived early (around 1pm), but not a problem at all. Parked our car in the premises without a problem. Good room. Shower was not that fantastic, but did the job. Service could hardly be friendlier. Breakfast good. Walked into town (Princes Street) and very doable, but we took a taxi back.

Lovely hotel, very friendly owners and absolutely loved Archie (who had his 1st birthday when we were there). Room was spotlessly clean and spacious although the bathroom was quite small. Breakfast was excellent - plenty to choose from. If you had the full breakfast you didn't need to each until much later in the day! Location is good - close...

Staying in West End

Neighbourhood Profile
West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in industrial Britain had their most desirable neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes. Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along the district’s busy main roads. Lothian Road connects to southern Edinburgh and harbors a vague entertainment district: three theatres and the city’s main indie cinema. All attract a select crowd, the sort who appreciate the Saturday Edinburgh’s Farmers’ Market around the corner. The West End’s other great thoroughfare, Shandwick Place, is dominated by trams trundling out to the suburbs and airport, and shoppers picking up last-minute items before hopping aboard.

“When traveling in Scotland you should start looking about 4pm in order to get a room. In big cities I recommend you reserve in advance. At Duthus Lodge try to get a room overlooking the front yard.”
