Liked the hosts Dave and Susan and they looked after us well. Room 4 is really only big enough for one single bed. It's too cramped for two singles forcing you to squeeze by the end of the beds sideways to get from one side of the room to the other. Large people would have difficulty. Room is comfortable once...

We stayed at Sherwood Guest House for 4 nights and it was a great time. It is not far away from city centre - approx 20 minutes walk, but you can also take any bus that has the stop 30 m from the house. The room we had was very clean, and it contained flat TV, the refrigerator and microwave...

Myself, the hubby and our two small children have been visiting Sherwood guest house for a number of years now (excluding the children they've only been born 2/3 years) however we make sure we can pay a visit once or twice a year as staying in this guest house with Dave and Susan adds to the pleasure of travelling up...

Could not fault this lovely guest house. We received a warm welcome from the owners even though we turned up without any prior booking. The ensuite rooms have everything you could require from tea and coffee making facilities, flat screen tv, iron and ironing board etc. The continental breakfast was exceptional, what a selection!! The guest house is conveniently located,...

This is a wonderful B&B with fantastic hosts and nice decor. My wife and I spent one night here in July 2013 with another couple that we are traveling with. We stayed upstairs in the double room (I can't remember the number). The only problem with the room was the heat. The room was very hot (due to no air-conditioning),...

Rated very highly by all members of our party. Susan and David, the owners, couldn't be more helpful and the breakfasts are to die for! Conveniently located for travel to the City centre and for local amenities, and easy to find from the main Edinburgh bypass. Would not hesitate to recommend.

We spent three nights at Sherwood guest house in September 2013. Located within 15 minutes walking distance to the city centre/Royal mile and well connected by bus, this is a great place to stay and explore Edinburgh.

My wife, daughter and I spent four days at Sherwood Guest House in October and would certainly recommend it.
