Fantastic stay at a beautiful property!!

Reviewed 25 september, 2021

Me and my partner stayed here for 3 nights for the first time and we can not wait to return!! We got a lovely warm welcome on arrival which made us feel very relaxed. LOVELY hot breakfast every morning (with lots of choices!!) cooked and served by 2 VERY helpful owners. The guest house itself is situated only a 25 minute walk or 10 minute bus journey from the city centre which was ideal for us. Our room was upstairs and it was the great for size and had everything you’d expect and more! The guest house itself is very clean and very well prepared for guests during this time of the COVID virus. We had a lovely stay and will be back for sure! Hats off to hosts John & Maureen for making us feel so welcome in their lovely home. I’d highly recommend Sandilands guest house to anyone staying in Edinburgh.

Lovely place if you don't mind the stuffy room

John, the owner is a lovely man, doing his best to make guests welcome. Every morning he serves a great breakfast according to the guest wishes. Bus drives every 20-30 minutes to the center. That is why I am giving 5 stars. Beside all the good, I need to write that we got a room in the ground floor that has serious problems with high humidity and air quality. The room was very humid, smelly and stuffy. It could not be helped with opening the window. I suppose they have problems with moisture coming up from the ground. All my cloths took in the smell. If you hardly tolerate this, I would recommend to find an other place to stay.

Lovely stay but pitiful ending due to a fair request.

We really thought we had landed on our feet at this B&B, small, cosy and a lovely welcome from John the owner. The rooms are basic but have all the necessary things in them including flat screen TV, kettle, tea’s and coffee’s and luggage racks. Breakfast was good but finished quite early. We stayed here for 4 nights and the room was freezing! The owner did come up to the room and ask me if I had turned the radiator valves on, which of course we had…the problem was the heating was turned off at 8pm and turned back on 11 hours later, this is an old house and the cold actually felt damp. After I politely asked for the heating to be left on it was and the room was extra cosy. Imagine my horror when I wrote a review on booking.com saying how good the B&B was but I found it a little cold and got a response from the owner saying I was pathetic!! I would have recommended this place but after reading Johns replies to the slightest criticism from guests I would steer well clear!!
