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.

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.

Lovely guesthouse within 20-30 minute walk to Edinburgh city, but also on a bus route if walking isn't possible. Parking in the side street next to the guesthouse. Rooms are small and bathroom tiny, but all very comfortable. Daily housekeeping. Delicious full English breakfast with plenty of choices cooked to order. Friendly family running the property. Was able to have some washing done (for a small charge) while we were out sightseeing.

Lovely, comfortable house with beautiful touches and attention to detail. The breakfasts were delicious with a variety of hot and cold options. The house is about 1.5 miles from the city center but the walk was pleasant and there are bus, Uber and taxi available if you are pressed for time. We thoroughly enjoyed our 8 day stay here!

Hosts were very friendly and helpful on Edinburgh attractions. Their suggestions on local restaurants were right on! They provided us tips to Arthur’s Seat, a must to do hike. There is off street parking provided, that is essential in Edinburgh and their son was a highly skilled valet.

Stayed at quite a few Edinburgh properties over the years and Lauderville is by far the best. Could not be faulted in anyway. I will be staying at Lauderville whenever I stay in Edinburgh from now on.
