First time in Scotland, visited Edinburgh for my birthday weekend. The Conifers is a lovely homely B&B, spotlessly clean, good breakfast and friendly hosts. We had room 4 which is extremely comfortable. Would recommend to friends.

We had alovely stay at Conifers. David was managing alone as his wife was away, but that didn't seem to phase him. We had a lovely breakfast and David was very knowledgeable about the local area and attractions we may find interesting in Edinburgh. The rooms were clean and quiet, the beds comfortable and the breakfast delicious. The bus stop...

This is the first b&b I have stayed in for years as I would usually choose a hotel. I was pleasantly surprised. Room was good, although the shared bathroom was a little small.

Spent 3 nights here during a short trip to Edinburgh. Easy to find with lots on street parking available. The room was very comfortable and quiet. The bathroom is a little cosy, but entirely functional. David was an extremely helpful host and the cooked Scottish breakfast was fabulous. Many thanks,

I stayed here due to the minimal choice of placed during the festival and it was basic but good. Charged £100 a night with no payment options apart from cash but room was comfy and clean. Town was surprisingly close and only took 6 min walk but loads of buses too. Dont know what normal price is but I think...

Nice, clean guesthouse. The owners make you feel at home and always see what they could do to help. I arrived at an unattractive hour and yet they stayed up to let me in. I would stay here again and recommend it to anyone who likes a reasonably priced guesthouse with good breakfast and twenty minutes walk from the centre.
