We booked this hotel at very short notice, after deciding on a whim to have a night away. We were only able to stay for one night, but wished it could have been much longer! We had slight difficulties finding the guest house, as the sat-nav took us further down the road than we should have been, but found it...

Thank you so much for your kind review. We do try hard to make our guests comfortable, and I am so glad we hit the spot for you. I note what you say about access to the city centre, . Generally we suggest to our guests that they use the bus service rather than the car, as parking can be...

I booked here after reading good reviews and seeing that it was in the area but outside the city of Edinburgh. I wanted a country, relaxed feel for our short time here, two nights and needed rest. by the time we got into the train station, the central hub of the city, I had to flag down a constable, who...

We're very sorry to hear that your travel plans changed at the last minute and that you found Edinburgh to be very busy on the rugby weekend. We are particularly sorry though that after cancelling on us 1 hour before your late check in, and abusing our staff you thought that giving us a one star rating was appropriate. Our...

Arrived late but directed by the host as unsure which way to take the bus. Our host sorted us out with breakfast menu and our room. Nice and cosy room tea and coffee available. Good breakfast and only real complaint was lack of pressure in shower when turned up. Just a little too far from central Edinburgh.

We had an unscheduled stop in Edinburgh and stayed at the Arden guest house we were welcomed despite the late check in The bedrooms and bathrooms are small but clean and comfortable. The young man in charge made us feel very welcome and was very supportive when we were un sure of our plans.(our mother had been admitted to hospital)...

This accommodation was warm and welcoming, free from the noise typical in the city centre, but easily accessible via frequent buses just outside. The staff was kind and more than willing to help with questions, such as dining recommendations. The breakfast provided was likewise good. Bathrooms were slightly tight but not bothersome. Room was kept temperate and beds were comfortable....

I stayed at the Arden Guest House while visiting the Royal Infirmary for a short internship. Fantastic service, lovely breakfast, very warm welcome, I would definitely recommend this B&B and come back myself!

I booked this on the recommendation of a colleague. However, they meant the place next door!! This guest house, in summary was cold, unwelcoming, not very secure ( my window didn't close properly and was a downstairs room). I Booked a double room and I was put in a room with twin beds. I asked for a double and was...

Arden_Management, Owner at Arden Guest House, responded to this review

We understand that your expectations were not met since you thought you had booked yourself into the 4 star hotel next door, when in fact you had booked yourself into our 3 star bed and breakfast in error. Obviously a 4 star hotel provides a different experience (and price tag!) to our more affordable, value for money option. We have...

Reviewed 30 January 2014

Whilst there was a very good breakfast the rooms are small and poorly decorated. This guest house is in desperate need of updating and staff are not always available. Paid £65 per room which frankly was not good value even though the cost is low compared to typical Edinburgh hotels.

Dear Kevin S We are sorry to hear that your stay with us did not meet with your approval. Firstly we are glad you enjoyed your breakfast. In fact if you look back through our reviews we are complimented time and time again on our breakfast and our friendly staff. We do acknowledge that some of our rooms are due...

I stayed there for 3 nights last December and enjoyed it completely. Great connectivity to the centre of the city with a bus stop close by. The room I stayed in was rather small, but comfortable and well stocked. The hosts were very warm, helpful and welcoming. Breakfast provided was sumptuous and very well prepared. They have a beautiful dining...

Stayed here with family and my parents on a weekend to Edinburgh to see one of my daughters. The owner was very attentive and extremely pleasant. We had the family room, which had two singles and a double bed. The room was a great size and the beds were very comfortable. Breakfast was superb and cooked as ordered. No complaints...
