Dorstan Guest House, Edinburgh, United Kingdom
Ideal location for city if you need parking
What a fantastic place to stay. Richard does an amazing job making every guest feel welcome, going above and beyond to ensure you have a great stay. No problem with off street parking. It's a fair hike to the main attractions but still walkable if you have comfortable shoes. Arthur's Seat is very close and definitely worth the effort. The room was bigger than most so plenty of space for two people. Very happy that we stayed here.

Lovely B&B in Edinburgh
Dorstan Guest House was wonderful. It is a beautiful building with comfortable beds and a delicious breakfast. There was car parking available, which was very handy. We walked into the heart of Edinburgh, with excellent directions from the staff. I would highly recommend this venue for visits to Scotland. The only downside is that the staff were busy and came across as unfriendly. It seemed to be a bother to them if you needed any interaction with them. The Wi-Fi was dreadful, we could not keep it logged on, and the speed was so slow we gave up.

The Location of this place is great!. For some reason the gentleman was short (rude) with us on several occasions over the 2 days we stayed. The lady was great. The walls are thin so bring earplugs as I was awaken from sleep at 11:15 at night and had trouble falling back to sleep as they talked ( probably quietly for some time) The House is in need of updating but works fine.. but you could not sit on the toilet square(leg room issues) the beds are very bouncy but comfortable. The breakfast is quiet nice.

Great Guest House
We’ve just returned from a great 3 nights stay for our wedding anniversary, & I can’t recommend the Dorstan highly enough. Check in is usually at 2pm, but as our train got in at 12. O’clock Richard told us that we were welcome to arrive then. He gave us plenty of information as to which buses to catch to get us there @ the prices, & also where we could get a taxi from. When we arrived he was waiting for us & was very informative on places to visit & also gave us plenty of advice on where to eat for our anniversary meal. He showed us 2 rooms on the ground floor & let us choose whichever one we wanted. We chose room 2, which was a smashing room with a great ensuite with a very good shower. You have a form in your room that you fill in every day for your choice of breakfast for the next morning, there’s a great variety & you can mix & match to suit your requirements. The breakfast was excellent & very hot & a great set up for a busy day of sightseeing, the bus stop is just a short walk away with plenty of buses throughout the day & a day ticket is only £4 each (though make sure you have the correct amount as the driver doesn’t have any change). It only takes 10 to 15 minutes to get into the centre, depending on traffic. Overall Richard & the rest of the team are very pleasant & helpful & the Dorstan is a lovely clean hotel. Highly Recommended.
