By all means, stay with Vivienne at Sherwood.
Vivienne has done a wonderful job with the Sherwood Guest House. Completely renovated, the room was large, comfortable, and had the services of a large hotel but with a personal touch. The neighborhood is great as well, especially when you want a local restaurant selection and not the craziness of downtown Edinburgh. I highly recommend it!!

A Gem in Newington!
The room was excellent, the bed oh so comfy, snacks in the room were very welcome! Water kettle and hot beverages were also in the room. Breakfast was amazing-fruits, meats, juices, breads, cereals, yogurts, and more! USB ports next to the electrical outlets! Very nice!

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.
