Historical Traveler Reviews Sandaig Guest House Edinburgh
Very very very good !!!
very good place
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.
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.
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.
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!

... slowly wearing out. I don't have that much energy, but I knew I had to keep going. My second cab driver was equally as nice as the first. It's hard to understand them through a glass barrier, and it's also hard for me to speak back to them with no voice. Screaming across the car put a major strain on my throat, and by the end of that cab ride I didn't feel like talking anymore. We talked about Austin a whole lot. He wanted to know about ACL and the music scene. ...
... see just how far it was to walk to the city from here. I'd done it before the last time I was here, but I don't remember it being quite so far that time! I've just measure it out on Google Maps and it turns out to be about 2km or so. At least it kept me warm!
The city centre hasn't changed that much, apart from all the tram tracks being complete, but I only had a quick look around before having to find somewhere for dinner - being on the train meant that ...
... spent outfitting it - have learned more about caravans than I have ever known before. Also bought a bicycle - can't remember the last time I've cycled and looking forward to it Lots of happy memories caravanning in Ireland with my family - although my abiding memory is of pouring rain lol ! Looking forward to exploring France and Spain.
A big huge thanks to all friends and Family. Love you all so much.
... of making the vellum (from sheepskins), creating the vivid colors and painting the detailed designs. There were also two huge, beautiful quilts that had been made and donated by individual women to highlight the Gospel illustrations...also works of art.
Besides the remains of the abbey, there is also a small castle, built in the 1500's and later bought and remodeled in the Arts and Crafts style around 1901 to make a nice little home ...
For these two days we're staying in a furnished apartment, which is very nice and roomy. When we arrived yesterday Elizabeth was excited to see a washer/dryer unit in the kitchen. So last night she did a load of laundry. Naturally there's no directions so she winged it. It appeared to be a four hour cycle which we took to mean it included the drying, since machines over here are typically a combo unit. Well the wash cycle finished and no dryer kicked in. We looked in the pamphlet ...
