We spent just under a week for our Honeymoon and it was such a relaxing well needed break. Anne was an excellent host and the breakfast she cooked us every morning set us up for the day. Amazing breakfast. Any info we needed on daily trips Anne gave us helpful tips and advise. After a manic beginning of 2013 organising...

We recently spent five days at Joppa turrets for the second time. As before, we found the guesthouse beautifully comfortable, quiet, a literal stone's throw from the beach (where my wife jogged each morning). All the rooms are beautifully appointed, warm and cosy in the roughest weather (we go in November). There is an excellent bus service from almost anywhere...

This is a lovely B&B run by Ann and Phil. The location is situated right next to the beach with excellent views of the Firth of Fourth. The breakfast was divine with a superb full english available.

I stayed for a few days with a friend. The location is excellent right next to Portobello beach. All bedrooms have windows to the sea. Breakfast was delicious and I even got a Haggis certificate for eating my first Haggis ;-) It's quite a bit outside town but there are very frequent buses to the center of Edinburgh so this...

This lovely little B&B is right off the beach in Portobello. If you open your window you can hear the waves, and you can walk along the beach in the morning/evening. The rooms are clean, cosy, quiet and comfortable with nice linens and toiletries however, you have to go up a flight or two of fairly steep stairs to get...

The accommodation is situated very close to Portobello beach, in fact a promenades distance away. The Joppa Turrets is extremely clean and well appointed with friendly owners. Parking was a problem as the Joppa Turrets does not offer any. The parking is on street if you can find a space !! However, this did not detract from our overnight stay.

My friend and I have just spent a week in Scotland at The Open Golf Championship - and we stayed at Joppa Turrets Guest House for the duration. Anne and Phil were a delight, the room was exactly as stated and was what we expected, with a great view out across the Promenade to the sea. The location - for...

Joppa Guest House is situated in a beautiful area right on the beach! It's quiet and convenient and our hosts were very good to us! Breakfast was fabulous, yes even the haggis and blood pudding!
