The Classic House in New Town Edinburgh was a delightful old townhouse converted to a B&B, and the owners were very helpful, pleasant, and prepared and served a wonderful breakfast. I would recommend it and stay there again.

We originally planned to stay in Edinburgh for 2 nights (ended up being 4). Emad offered us a 2bedroomed/2 bathroomed apartment with lounge/dining room plus kitchen only 3-4 minutes walk from his guesthouse. It was a fantastic stay for us, very very comfortable, extremely secure with private parking. Thank you Emad, the weather proved to be very cold and wet...

classichouse50, Owner at Classic Guest House, responded to this review

The comments regarding the website have been enlightening. The website does not in fact state that ALL rooms are en-suite, however, it does imply that this is the case. We have now contacted our web-designer to correct this and make clear that we have this one room that has ‘private facilities’. All customers are informed when booking this room that...

We arrived at the Classic Guest House Friday 30th December and had a very warm welcome from the owner Emad. He gave us each a complimentary bottle of water, which was much needed after our exhausting journey. The rooms were very inviting and comfortable. Everything that you need and want is available to you. The bathrooms are a little small...
