Beautiful guest house in a perfect location. Gill and Iain are wonderful hosts, really making you feel at home as soon as you walk in the door. Our room with private bathroom was amazing, very clean and spacious, with fantastic facilities. Would have loved to stay longer than just the weekend! Must recommend!

The room we had was very spacious. Breakfast is served late. You have to choose between enjoying the breakfast you have paid for with your room reservation or going on any tour in the city or to the countryside. The breakfast begins so late that you cannot get to the city in time to join a tour. The owner will...

Thoroughly enjoyed my stay in a gorgeous room with private bathroom. Home from home. Gill is a fantastic host, many thanks for your delicious brekky - aided by your singing buddy serving the fare. Would recommend the King of Kippers, but make sure you put your order in. LOVE Edinburgh and will DEFO be back. Xx

I chose the Bonnington guest house Leith due to the reviews I had seen, and we were not disappointed, a rare plus was the private car park at the back, the park right next to it with excellent walks to Ocean Terminal and down into Edinburgh itself. Our room on the top floor was spacious and well furnished. The bed...

We stayed over the Easter bank holiday weekend in the top floor room which was very clean and cosy. The bed was very comfy, there was a beautiful view of the park filled with daffodils and there was even a decanter of complimentary sherry! The location was great with a bus stop very close with regular buses to town. Ian...
