We stayed here just for one night over a weekend, and would definitely stay again. Our room was spacious, comfortable and clean. We were offered non-dairy milk on arrival for teas/coffees. Breakfast was delicious, and our host Cathy was very friendly and accommodating.

We booked a last minute 3 night stay at the Claymore City to attend Edinburgh's Hogmanay street party. We were told to expect quite a small room, but upon arrival we found our room was more than big enough for the 2 of us. Everything was clean and we were very comfortable. Breakfast was great, we aren't vegetarians but there... More

The house is on a street full of B&B options and on the bus route. My bedroom was very pretty, with a sink, a shared-bathroom, coffee & tea in room, comfortable bed, and very relaxing vibe. Breakfast was truly the best you can imagine. I am not vegetarian and I would definitely choose her home over any other just to... More

Have stayed twice at the Claymore now, and will definitely return next time we go to Edinburgh. Welcoming, comfortable and warm accommodation, with a great range of veggie and vegan breakfast options that were most appreciated after a night out. It's not too far to walk from the main areas of Edinburgh, or you can easily get a bus or... More

This is such a delightful place to stay. The house is comfortable and clean, the decor restful but interesting, the food is fabulous (including for vegans) and the welcome is warm. We have stayed there two years running for August festival trips and hope to return.

I just returned from three nights at Claymore with my husband and mother as part of an eight day trip to Scotland. We arrived at around 11am, jet-lagged but not expecting to get into our room until later that day. However, Cathy welcomed us in and informed us that the room was ready. We had booked the family room that... More

This is a very charming guesthouse with spacious and well-decorated rooms -- in my opinion, larger and prettier than those of much more expensive classic hotel that a friend of mine chose to stay in. It's about a 20 minute brisk walk to the city centre, or just a few minutes on the bus which stops opposite the front door.... More

We have a vegan in the family, which can make travel a bit tricky, and gigantic egg-butter-bacon breakfast menus sometimes leave nothing but juice and dry toast as an options. We chose this hotel because of the vegetarian/vegan friendly aspect, but we liked it for more than that. Our rooms were really nice--airy, light, colourful and comfortable. The owner/hostess is...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are a 10-15 minute walk to Princes Street. We offer three things to our guests - enjoyable accommodation, warm and friendly atmosphere and good food and we do it with pleasure. Although our food is vegetarian and vegan, we have had many meat eating guests over the years and most of them have gone home happy! We welcome every kind of people and look forward to welcoming you. ... more   less
