      Historical Traveler Reviews Sandaig Guest House Edinburgh

      Very very very good !!!


      very good place

      wonderful room

      im very recommon.

      Sandaig in Leith, Edinburgh was tops


      They offered super quick response to email query and gave a warm welcome upon arrival. Pros: Wireless Web Access!!!!! Fabulous. Large screen TV and room phone!! The room was spacious, beautiful and clean as a whistle. I'm really into comfort and the Sandaig didn't disappoint. The bedding, including mattresses & pillows were snuggly, included top sheets, and was amply sized to cover the entire body. Too often bedding is undersized, pillows are wilted with age, mattresses cheap, saggy-sprung or hard as a rock. Sandaig's breakfast was great and the service guy was funny as well as efficient. A few Cons: Seemed strange to be offered one shortbread treat on first night but none thereafter in a room occupied by two persons. I gently left hint in this regard but it was ignored as was my request for liquid soap replenishment in bathroom. Be forewarned, guests are not allowed to bring or order in food to consume in room. Overall, this was a great place to stay.

      Highly recommended guest house


      We were really delighted with this guest house - very spacious and pretty room overlooking Leith Links. Short walk to Leith waterside with all its' restaurants. Great breakfast. Warm and welcoming. We will definitely stay here on next visit.

      Very Nice


      We loved the Sandaig, we found it very friendly, very clean, and very comfortable. The food we thought was very good and presented well. We would return.



      I have just arrived back home from staying at the sandaig guest house. I have visited Edinburgh 4 times before, though this was my first time staying at the sandaig, i really enjoyed my stay as the room i was in was really clean and fresh looking, the staff at the sandaig were really friendly. when i have stayed at hotels before i found some staff could not be bothered with you, were as the sandaig staff they seem to go out their way to make sure you have a pleasent stay. i would highly reccomend that whilst visiting edinburgh stay at the sandaig.

      thank you

      Enjoyed the Sandaig


      I stayed at the Sandaig Guest House along with my two sons, when we visited the Edinburgh Festival in August 2006. It is located in an excellent neighborhood and is only a 10 minute bus-ride away from the city center. A Taxi to Princes St costs only GBP 5.50.

      Derek and Marina, the owners were most pleasant when I spoke to them over the telephone. They were away during my actual stay, but there was a manager there who was most kind and helpful; not just to me but I watched how he went out of his way to help a couple of other guests who had lost their tickets to the Tattoo in a local taxi on the day of the Tattoo (He called the Taxi company, located the tickets, went looking for the couple in town where they were walking after having given up all hope, and delivered their tickets to them!).

      The Polish girls serving breakfast were most sweet and pleasant.

      Everything was spotlessly clean and I have no complaints. The only thing I would say that I found it a bit too pricey... coming from the US and converting it to US Dollars, GBP 137 is almost USD 250 a night!

      But I would most certainly consider staying at the Sandaig on my next visit to Edinburgh.

      Unfriendly and cheap food


      We have just returned from staying at the Sandaig for one night, we found the hotel to be clean and tidy and the decor very nice, but I have to say that the owners and staff were not the friendliest people we have ever met. It cost us 150.00 for one night for a triple room, and I would say that was at least 50 more than it should have been. Only serving breakfast between 8 and 9 am made it a bit of a rush in the morning, but even after ordering our breakfast at 8.50 it was 9.30 before we actually had it served to us. I had to remind the waitress at 9.15 for our pot of tea, we had ordered at the same time as breakfast. My scrambled egg was swimming in water and my husbands poached egg was hard boiled, I would say it was the cheapest bread you can buy for toast and was unimpressed with the rest that was on the plate. Would never go there again, and would not recommend it to anyone either. There was also a 3% surcharge on all card payments, you expect it on credit cards but not debit.

      Spacious and comfortable


      My family stayed at Sandaig house last summer. The first thing I noticed as we were walking to it was how nice the neighborhood was. Nearly all the houses had lots of flowers growing, painted doors and a picket fence. Sandaig was no exception.

      Our room was very bright, with tall windows and high ceiling, which made it feel very spacious. It was also nicely decorated. The bathroom was a comfortable size, which is very often not the case in other B&B's.The beds were also comfortable and large.

      Breakfast the next morning was very good. You are waited on, so it's even a notch above the average buffet-style. Then we took the very short walk to the bus stop, and we were off to enjoy Edinburgh for the day.

      Just OK


      We recently stayed at Sandaig for two nights, and found the experience to be "Just OK". It is in a cheap taxi ride to downtown Edinburgh, so that is a plus. Lack of internet access would eliminate this as a future possibility though.

      Fantastic, modern, clean!


      My Fiance and I stayed in the Sandaig Guesthouse after booking it through Edinburgh Tourist Information, can't remember the exact price but think it was around 58 for the room B & B, we stayed in a family room which is more expensive than a double as they were full, the rooms are sumptuously decorated, very modern and extremely clean! it's a 5 star bed and breakfast and its easy to see why, we were deciding on a place to get married and this is a great place for the centre of Edinburgh or travel out from, into the centre there is a bus stop outside, the buses are approx every 10 mins, or a taxi is between 4-5. The breakfast was great, a large selection including full English breakfast, cereals, fruit salad, croissants etc. couldn't say a bad word against it!

      After a long train ride we finally arrived in Edinburgh. Luckily our hostel was just across the street up about 100 stairs (or that's what it felt like). We dumped our stuff in the room and headed out into the freezing cold Scotland. We didn't realize that the Fringe festival was happening. We went out to the Main Street and it was the complete opposite of Huntly. There were people everyone, is was actually a little crazy. The Fringe festival is where all of the ...

      ... last day we left after gorging ourselves on waffles again and set to burning off some calories climbing Arthurs seat. The view was phenomenal and the wind picked up quite quickly the higher we climbed. The going was tough especially because I was setting a brisk pace up the steepest hill face. The weather was cold and cloudy but the views still amazed us both. Upon the highest point in Edinburgh you can see the cliff the Castle was perched upon looming over the ...

They were forced to make the walk way we were standing on and he described how Americans hate to be told that story. Personally, we loved it...we made them a nice little walk way as we won the war - not bad really haha.

      So alas, our yay day was over, and we headed back into the "Auld Reekie" But mark our words Pentlands...we'll be back.

      Yay for Yay Day!
