I cannot say enough nice things about Vivienne and her wonderful guest house. The bedrooms are terrific, as are the breakfasts and the hospitality. You'll want for nothing -- she's already considered what you need. There's a reason this place has such high marks -- Vivienne. We had an issue that required a lot of special attention, and she was brilliant. She's running a first-class establishment, and she is hard-wired to be a guest house owner. Plus, you won't meet a friendlier human. Everything about Sherwood Guest House has it on our list of places we will stay again. Thank you, Vivienne!

If your in Edinburgh this is the place to stay. Vivian The owner n host is full of joy and great information about her city. She set us on a perfect path of things to see. The inn is immaculate, updated and decorated beautifully. The breakfast room and food were delicious and had everything you needed. Highly recommended and if I’m back in Edinburgh. That’s where I’ll stay
