“Beautiful Bed & Breakfast”
Reviewed 14 July 2011

Although we only stayed one night, Sonas was definitely a highlight of our trip to Europe. The location was close enough to walk to and from the Edinburgh city centre, the accommodations were comfortable and clean, and the staff was incredibly helpful and considerate. The breakfast was also filling and delicious. I would recommend Sonas to anyone looking for an affordable, but luxurious stay!

Room Tip: The room was rather cozy (aka small), but it was well worth the value. It was clean, the beds were...

Spent 1 night at Sonas on our family road trip through Scotland. Arrived by car, and the place was rast to find, based on their directions. Big plus for private car park in the back, and that Irene let us keep the car there all day was much appreciated. Easy to get to the city center via the numerous bus alternatives out on the main road. Good breakfast and clean rooms.

We stayed 6 nights with Irene and Christie during the Touch Rugby World Cup. The breakfasts were great, some mornings we had early starts due to the early tap offs, the girls either gave us an early breaky or a packed breaky. One of the days, we had 3 matches, it was raining and we went back to the B&B for a rest, they dried our wet rugby gear in time for our next match, even after our last match that day, they dried our gear in time for the match the next morning, the girls are amazing. They even let us print out our boarding cards for our flight home too. They really went the extra mile. I can not rate this B&B high enough, a definite 10/10.
It is in a great location too, plenty of buses near by and it is walking distance to the Peffermill playing fields too.
Can't wait to go back to Edinburgh and stay in Sonas again.

We stayed at Sonas for two nights in June of 2010 on a three week trip through the UK. Interestingly, I don't think the photo attached to the Sonas Guest House on Tripadvisor is correct. I looked for one that would more accurately portray the place but only have one very close-up shot of the proprietor at the front door. Anyway, it was the perfect place to stay: comfortable, relaxing, reasonably priced and well appointed. The car park is out back which is actually more secure. Keep in mind there are a lot of stairs. It is away from the hustle and bustle but only a few blocks from nightlife and dining. Right on the bus line to all of the sights on the Royal Mile., but we actually walked there and back twice. I'd go back in a minute.

I have just spent three night at the Sonas Guest House with my mother. We were very pleased with our stay. We had a twin en-suite room - a double and single bed - bath and shower. The room was perfect - clean, quiet and comfortable, with a good view out the back. We had a good breakfast each morning and were always greeted/served with warmth and kindness. I would definately stay again, and would be happy to stay on my own as a single lady. Sonas is also off the main road and on an excellent bus route into the city centre. Thank you Irene!
