We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this guest house. We were greeted by Simon and his beautiful sausage dog. I would like to say thank you to Simon who made our stay special and his delicious breakfasts especially his omelettes always brought a smile to my face and good start to each day. Myself and my husband particularly liked the classy and grandeur interior, another factor which contributed to an all round experience was the location. Located in the Mayfield area this was ideal with half an hour walk within all the attractions and the city centre which kept us on our toes. Another aspect to note was the attention to ensuring the guest house was covid safe within numerous hand sanitisers placed throughout the guest house. Thank you Simon.

Beds were comfortable and the room seemed newly redone. They provided us with water and glasses. The breakfast was very good. We followed their suggestions for nearby places to eat and really enjoyed No 1 Grange. Location was great for Holyrood Park and The Meadows, but a little less convenient to Old Town/City Center. Lots of bus options though. Staff was very helpful in helping us figure everything out.

Lauderville great stay at Christmastime
Lovely experience at Lauderville Guest House. Proprietors were warm, informative, interesting and highly guest service oriented. Rooms are small, and bathroom is truly a wonder of fitting in a tight space, but the beds are really comfortable, the house and street quiet, and all within a short 20 min walk to Edinburgh’s main attractions. The breakfast was also terrific and the coffee and tea sublime (especially to the jet-lagged traveler). Oh, did i mention the price is really reasonable? I give Lauderville my highest recommendation.
