Lovely weekend getaway
Room was slightly outdated and a bit dirty, but overall a nice stay and great customer service. Location was also very central and quiet.

Basic but comfortable and breakfast was excellent. Facilities ideal for an overnight stay..only issue was separate bathroom but ok for one night ..if staying longer would prefer en suite

Very Good 8.0
The room was fairly well presented but I did not relish having to climb 36 steps up to the top of the building because there are no lifts there.

Doesn’t meet description
We booked a room with a king bed, air conditioning, and an iPod dock. The room we got was in the attic, and lacked all of these amenities. It had a piece of broken furniture and dirty sections in the paint. The decor was strange and the bed was hard. The Sandaig was accommodating with our check in, giving us a code and leaving us a key. It’s in a row of bed and breakfasts with free street parking and borders a nice park. It’s within a mile of many restaurants and pubs in the Leith area. Overall, we are disappointed that we paid £175 for something that didn’t meet the description given.
