Tidy, cute, comfy & reasonably priced, this accommodation was a random internet pick. Really enjoyed the Scottish breakfast & she made nice 'to go' breakfast boxes for us on the mornings we left early. Liked the in room tea set-up too...shower pressure could have been better...if you don't mind about a 25 min walk from the Royal Mile this is... More

The host and staff present the guest house as a homely and very personal experience in Edinburgh. Public transport is outside and the tram only a block away. This is the airport tram. The guest house is within walking distance of the station and is close by to quality restaurants, car hire facilities and theatre. Breakfast is included and the... More

I had 4 days in Edinburgh at the end of my long holiday and booked in at Canadale. I'm glad I did. Catherine is very welcoming and friendly host. The house itself is an old Victorian so the rooms are small and the floor is creaky, but it is clean, comfortable and cosy. Breakfasts are good, and because a few... More

This is a fabulous guesthouse - Lovely owner who was really helpful, delicious breakfast and the rooms are lovely and comfortable. There's a bus right outside the guesthouse so getting around couldn't be easy. Highly recommended!

We had a room on the top floor with our own bathroom. Very comfortable and it included the facilities you need; comfy beds, water cooker and nice bathroom. Excellent freshly made breakfast! Not necessarily negative but to keep in mind; 1) guest house is remote from city centre. But we took a black cab for GBP 5.50 so that is... More

Stayed at the Canadale Guest House recently with my partner... We was very grateful that we was allowed to have our room earlier than 4pm.... I booked the room through booking.com. On the booking email it said we was having the ground floor. Upon arrival, we was informed that we was actually on the top floor... Not a problem but... More

The whole house had a weird smell to it, and our room was badly in need of repair to the bathroom as you could smell the mold just walking into it. The air was dank and thick and smelled like a dirt basement - and the fan didn't work at all. I pulled back the curtains and a cloud of... More

I have stayed and continue to stay at Canadale quite frequently for business. Lovely guest house, nice rooms, friendly staff and owner and great breakfast service. Ideal place. 2 minute walk from Leith Walk which hosts various bars/restaurants and shops. Highly recommended.

We stayed at Canadale Guest House for two nights. Our room was on the top floor with ensuite and it was cosy, clean and quiet.

I had a wonderful stay at the Craigmoss Guest House recently. I actually stayed in two different rooms (left for a few days and then came back), and both were lovely, clean, and comfortable. The breakfast each morning was both delicious and plentiful (I tried both the traditional Scottish breakfast and the porridge). The hosts were friendly and helpful. The... More
