This B&B near Holy Corner, Morningside is an ideal place from which to explore both Edinburgh and/or the surrounding area. It's near enough to the city to walk or catch a bus (excellent bus services) and far enough out to be away from the city in no time at all. The accommodation is in a beautiful older house that has...

Stayed one night here for a work Christmas night out. The location is brilliant for exploring Edinburgh. The room was cosy and the bed was very comfortable. The hosts are very friendly and breakfast was great. Would definitely return.

I often stay at Sandeman House when in Edinburgh. The location is perfect in a quiet residential area in the south side of the city. Parking is just a couple of minutes walk and the guest house is close to plenty places to dine and a small well stocked supermarket. The bedrooms are extremely comfortable and breakfast is a real...

Everyone will find something to appreciate with this walking tour. The guide is sympathetic and energetic. She talks about the history of Scotland and some anecdotes from de city. It lasts 2h30 but you don't have to walk a lot. The only bad thing was that the weather was too cold.

We made a last minute booking for the Sandeman house over New Years and were lucky enough that there was a cancellation - we weren't expecting much. The house is in the historic register, and is well located in Morningside. The room we stayed in, the bay room, was large, the bed was really comfortable and the bedding was just... More

I stay regular at Sandeman House when working in Edinburgh. On this visit I was offered a different room and was extremely impressed. It was a large front facing room with a bay window housing a delightful tartan clad chaise long which looked fantastic in the bright room. The bed was huge and extremely comfortable. I always sleep well here... More

A friendly welcome and a good breakfast. Our en-suite rooms were rather frugal and the plumbing needed a safe-breakers sensitivity to perform properly. Our host was most helpful in finding us a car park (on a quiet street) some 40 minutes walk from the B&B, to where he drove us, to and from.

“The rooms at the front of the house are both en-suite. The room at the rear has a bathroom right next door. The larger room at the front has a huge bed and a tartan chaise longue which is lovely. All the beds are very comfortable.”
