Sherwood Guest House, Edinburgh
Absolutely Perfect
Vivian will make you smile the minute you walk in the door! Easy access to town. And the best Pub in town in just around the corner. Ask Rick Steve’s. The Old Bell Inn. But Sherwood Guest House is beautiful and in a great location to the city. We will be back to visit and stay here.

Great stay
Vivienne was so delightful and had me laughing all while giving some crucial advice on how to better enjoy the city of Edinburgh. Parking is very scarce there so make sure you follow her advice on where to go for free street parking. The breakfast was lovely and we wish we had more time there. Thanks for all your help Vivienne!

Perfect stay!
Sherwood Guest House was great. The location is convenient and the accommodations are perfect. Breakfast was tasty, with plenty of options. I can't say enough about how welcome we were made to feel. Vivienne is a wonderful host! She was extremely helpful with everything from the best restaurants to which bus to take and which tours are good. I would definitely stay there again.
