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.

I would stay here again!
A clean lovely home with excellent service. Our room was a bit small compared to the picture so be aware that the size of room should be stated when booking. The breakfast was always excellent as well as the company of all the owners.

Good 6.0
noisy small room
The room I stayed for two nights is small, and a quarter of the room is used for the shower, toilet, and small wash basin; the window is facing the noisy main road where buses and cars run regularly (two way traffic), and even with the window shut I hardly slept the first night, and still couldn't sleep well during the second night (Sat. night)

Fantastic! Must stay
Fantastic stay! Yvonne and Brian were so nice. 20 min bus ride from Old Town, the Old Bell pub down the road was delicious! Great for vegetarians, vegan and meat eaters.

Highly recommend!
Simon and everyone else at Lauderville Guest House were fantastic. From the moment I walked into the guest house I automatically felt at home. It’s about a 20-25 min walk to Old Town Edinburgh and only a 10-15 walk to Arthur’s Seat. A great, comfortable location close to everything and away from the noise. Highly recommend!
