Dorstan Guest House, Edinburgh
Super friendly, efficient staff. Wonderful breakfast. Quiet. On grounds parking, a must in this city. Bus stops close by. Wonderful restaurant up the road, The Salisbury Arms. Love this city. Love the Dorstan Guest House. We'll be back. Only one negative. Let the bath/shower water run for a couple of minutes before getting in. The hot water is HOT!

Nice accommodation, friendly owners, B&B feel.
Was pleasantly surprised when Richard, the proprietor, emailed me a week before my arrival to welcome me to Dorstan house. The location is nice and quiet with a suburban feel, not far from Arthur's Seat Hill. The room was on the smaller side, but was convenient and with a small bathroom. The bed was twin size. When I arrived, Richard himself welcomed me and showed me the room. Breakfast was nice, freshly prepared in the morning and could be customized the night before. Overall, was very happy with my stay and with Richard and his wife's hospitality at Dorstan House.
