Nice but rushed
Very lovely house, big breakfast, and comfortable bed. If you do not like sharing a bathroom, then this isn't the place for you although every time I went in there it was clean and I never had to wait to use it. Only negative thing is that I felt a bit rushed to get out. Cleaning staff was knocking on doors at 10am to see if they were empty with a 10:30am check out. Perhaps they can ask guests to use the door stop to leave their doors open when they leave or to hang something on their door that it's ready to be cleaned like in a hotel.

Great base for Edinburgh sightseeing visit.
The location was convenient to the sightseeing attractions.Staff were very friendly and efficient, Breakfast was excellent,great choice and quality. Our room was warm and cozy, in great shape in a beautiful period house, everything we needed was included We were unfortunate to have a flat tire on our car in the morning and the help we received in locating a repair shop was well more than expected.

Lovely B & B
We loved our stay at The Ben Doran guest house! We arrived late on our first night, we called to inform them and Alexandra waited for us to arrive. We stayed in room 9 with a private bath, it was very clean with a comfortable bed. The full Scottish breakfast was delicious. The bus stop is right across the street and stops at The Royal mile and North Bridge so you are within walking distance of Edinburgh Castle, Palace of Holyrood House, Aurthur's Seat, Princes Gardens and Waverly Station. The entire staff was very friendly. We highly recommend staying here.

This was a lovely room, with a large bed, and very quiet! The location is a good ways south of the city center, though right on a bus line.
