We stayed at Martin's Guest House for 2 weeks and enjoyed it thoroughly. The ensuite room was large and had a super-size king bed. Both of us slept well and were extremely satisfied with our hosts and their staff. Breakfast was generous, tasty and filling. The bus stop was a few steps from the front door, and the Royal Mile was only a 20 minute walk away. Many restaurants and a grocery store were a short walk, as well as a bank and post office. We very highly recommend this Guest House!

Unique Qualities: There is a theater nearby, as well as several places to eat. Buses pick up and drop off every 10 minutes during the day, and there was even a night bus. The Elephant House was a short bus ride away (where J.K. Rawlings began writing her Harry Potter series), and her house is within walking distance of Martin's Guest House. Rosslyn Chapel is a short bus ride away, as well as Edinburgh Zoo. Fantastic central location to see Edinburgh from. They have a car park in back as well.

Address: Martin's Guest House, 5 Granville Terrace, Edinburgh EH10 4PQ
Price Comparison: less expensive than average
Directions: The #10 and #17 buses will take you almost to their door. Granville Terrace is also known as Gilmore Place. The Guest House is on the corner of Merchiston Mews, Merchiston Park, and Granville Terrace.
