Great stay
excellent stay..very good position for us. Spotlessly clean. We both thought the mattress was a bit firm but this is of course a matter of choice. Would definitely stay again

Great place
Great place to stay for accessing near by attractions and the city centre. Great host who was very helpful and nice. Would definitely recommend it, we will be back. Only thing was the pillows weren’t the best but that’s a personal preference.

Excellent visit and best hosts!!
Danny & Jasmine (proprietors) were amazingly kind and helpful. The breakfast they served was very good and they give you lots of choice from cereal to full english. The only complaint, and it's minor, the bed is quite firm. The 25 bus stops just across or a few houses down. Tesco is a few blocks away. Access to city centre is very easy from Mackenzie Guest House.

Loved the character of the building our room was very cute. Lovely breakfast, the only thing I would change would be the breakfast times starting at least an hour earlier. Otherwise we had a great stay would definitely stay again very clean and great value.

Once they get your money...
I initially booked 3 nights instead of 1, immediately called to change it but the online booking was final since I didn’t cancel the booking a month before I booked it. They refused to reduce the stay due to some unpublished “minimum night policy” and refused to cancel the booking to let me book a night elsewhere. Rather greedy and inflexible attitude, but I ended up just using the booking. Apart from that it was fine.

Comfortable B&B ten minutes away from City
Convenient for transport to city centre by bus. Lots of places to eat nearby. Near the Royal Britannia. Rooms are cleaned everyday. There were enough toiletries that are topped up everyday. Beds are comfortable enough but pillows in our room was a bit thin, we had to take pillows in the single bed as we were given a room with a double and spare bed. Breakfast is from 8-9 am during weekdays and 9-10am on weekends. Reasonably priced. Overall a comfortable stay. We would stay here again if we are in Edinburgh.

This is a really cute guest house on a nice street. Easy to park, walking distance from the Royal Mile (if a bit of a long walk). Very nice staff.

Ideal if on a budget
In Leith, about 2 miles from Waverley station but only 50 yards from the bus stop. Stayed on top floor which would be difficult to access for those with reduced mobility. Floor was a little uneven. Had the shared bathroom to ourselves because the other room on the top floor was not taken. Good breakfast, especially the black pudding. Excellent value for the Edinburgh area.
