    We booked the Sandaig Guest House as we were going to a party in the area and needed a place to stay overnight! We were very pleasantly surprised from the moment we opened the front door as it was beautifully decorated,very,very clean and we were greeted by Laura who was extremely friendly! Our ensuite room was at the top of the house and was beautifully equipped and very warm and comfortable,with a small table and chairs set out with tea/coffee and biscuits, in a bay window which overlooked the adjoining Leith Links! We hadn't booked the breakfast but on Sunday morning decided to have it and weren't disappointed,good choice and very good value! We will definately return to the Sandaig!!

    Staff were very friendly. Breakfast choice was excellent. Room quiet and clean.

    The bathroom needed attention. The plug did not work properly in the sink preventing water from draining. Bulbs needed replacing making the bathroom extremely dark.

    The staff at Sandaig is very friendly and helpful and the rooms are cosy and very clean. Breakfast is also very good. The bus stop is a few metres from the hotel and it will take you about 10 minutes to get to the centre. All in all a very good experience and would recomend this hotel to anyone.

    Nothing really, had a great experience and will definitely go there again!

    The hotel was just brilliant, offering way more than we'd expected for its price tag. Quiet location, but having buses every 15 minutes on the street.

    Very easy to find from the A1, close to city centre, modern and clean, friendly staff.

    My ground floor room was lovely & newly decorated. The bathroom was the best in the UK (it was spacious, with high quality fittings including a separate shower box, plus a shower over the bath - i.e. 2 choices to use). The excellent value for money meant my daughter and I afforded 2 separate (double) rooms. The free wi-fi was convenient. I very much liked the modern decor and standard of accommodation with attention to detail. The staff were friendly, professional and helpful. Overall a great place to stay. I also liked the outlook over the leafy park and trees.

    The location could have been a little inconvenient as I didn't realise Leith was beyond waking distance to the central city. But the great value compensated for the location, and the taxi was cheap to get to town.

    Close to bus line and downtown. Staff were very friendly and helpful despite the appearance to an outsider of being overworked due to guest house understaffing.

    Parking consists of finding a place on the street (or not). Amenities, ie. Tv, Internet, not working well. Breakfast was expensive and yet limited in choice relative to other less expensive guest houses we stayed in during our travels. Overall...not good value for the money!,,,

    Although not central, the Sandaig was located adjacent to park with bus stops directly outside the hotel. Just 20 minute walk from Ocean Terminal and the Royal Yacht Britannia and easy bus ride into the centre of Edinburgh. The hotel was quiet and well appointed with friendly, helpful staff, who provided a first class breakfast. A nice example of the thoughtfulness of the proprietors was a gratis decanter of sherry in the room.

    We had a wonderful stay. The rooms are quite big and the beds are long enough for people tall 190 cm like me! Bus 12 and 25 to the city centre at 30 meters, just 5-10 minutes! Breakfast good!

    Location great, 5-10 mins walk to Leith and the restaurants and short bus trip into centre of Edinburgh. Great view from room overlooking the park.

    The staff were extremely helpful and accomodating during our stay. I had entered into the Edinburgh Marathon and asked for an early breakfast - which was no trouble at all and stood me in good stead for the run ahead. The rooms are modern and very tastefully decorated and the shower was amazing. The Sandaig is situated on a regular bus route into the city which makes getting to the centre very easy

    Hallway decor was a little dated

    The friendliness and helpfulness of Derek on our arrival was continued all weekend with himself and staff team. The room was spacious ( 3 women together), comfortable and clean. On the bus route straight to the city of Edinburgh. Plenty of local ammenities on the doorstep. WONDERFUL BREAKFAST and served beautifully.

    We both were very impressed by the friendly feel that the Sandaig had, the breakfasts were amazing and we both thought it was value for money there seemed to be something for every one, the rooms were set to a very high standard and the cleanliness was spot on.
