I stayed here with my sister and we had a delightful time. The room was comfortable and very clean. It was also very quiet. The view is spectacular and I loved how close we were to the water. There is a great little pub close by and enjoyed several pints while relaxing. The breakfast was hearty and filling and the...

Although I normally try to stay closer to a city's center when I'm touring, the beachfront location and direct bus to the Royal Mile more than compensate for the 15 - 20 minute commute. The neighborhood is tranquil, my room was quaint and comfortable with a wonderful view of the ocean, and the breakfast was hearty and delicious. But the...

I booked a single room for three nights and couln't have been happier with my accomodation. The B&B is situated directly at the beach and my room was clean, bright and spacious with a lovely view. Anne and Phil are very warm and welcoming hosts who instantly made me feel at home. The breakfast was absolutely fantastic and set me...

This is a lovely Guest House located right on the beach with stunning sea views and only a 20 minute bus ride into Edinburgh. We spent 3 nights here, I stayed in the single room and my companion had the double bedroom. Both rooms have very good quality beds, with a clean and modern shower en suite, The "Full Scottish"...

We stopped here for two nights as we wanted to visit the Edinburgh festival but without the potential noise that you would get in some of the more central locations. It was perfect in that respect. We abandoned the car in a quiet side road (as there's no parking on site) and either got the excellent bus service (£1.50 each...

We have just returned from a wonderful week staying at this little gem of a guest house situated almost on the beach at Joppa. The service from Phil and Ann was excellent and our breakfasts around the large table were a delightful melange of food and humour. Why stay in the city centre when this place is so good and...
