Weekend in Edinburgh
The Alpha Guest House was our base for a family birthday weekend in Edinburgh and the owners were wonderful in all aspects of the stay. From our arrival through to our departure after a great breakfast could not be faulted! I would definitely come back as the location, value for money and quality of the Guest House was excellent.

Great place in Edinburgh
Alpha Guest House was a great base for us in Edinburgh. Outside the city centre, hence quiet but easy to get to and from the centre by bus. Just remember to either pre-purchase your bus tickets or have the exact fare (as they do not give change on the buses). Our host was lovely and even made use a "take-away" breakfast for the morning when we did a bus trip and had an early start. Will stay again when next in Edinburgh.
