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!

... on the left and a waiting area straight ahead. I stood in the middle of the room and did a 360 looking for the rental key drop off box the Avis agent emailed me about (he would be in until later). Ha, had walked right past in at the front door. Dropped in the key and a note telling where I had parked the car and went over to check in. As I was waiting at the empty check-in desk a guy came over and said the person was not a work yet and ...

Delicious! Walked to Teuchters Landing to taste some whisky! Tried 2 different ones. Julie not too keen but Shirl quite fancied the whisky! Maybe further practice is required.

... the Irish Sea. Only small remnants left. At the England/Scotland border there was a Scottish piper and we saw our first wild heather and flowering Scottish thistle growing beside the road. Lunch stop was at Jedburgh which is an historic town where we saw Mary Queen of Scots house and the remnants of the Abbey. Then off to Sir Walter Scott's 200 year old Abbotsford House on the Tweed River, where we enjoyed tea and shortbread and a guided tour. The house has recently ...
... We then decided to make our way to Calton Hill to watch the sun set. Once we reached the top of the hill, we could hear some music in the distance. I then realized that One Direction was playing their concert in Edinburgh that night. The sunset was incredible, just as if the sky was on fire.
Wednesday morning we headed over to the castle and walked along the royal mile in the pouring rain. We were still able to see quite a bit but the rain really put a damper on some ...
