    Selection from Guests Comments 2011 :

  • Southside Guest House Edinburgh “I would highly recommend the Southside Guest House! The rooms are very spacious and comfy. Franco and Lynne are wonderful hosts who provide a delicious breakfast every morning. They even print out the weather forecast each day for you! I was delighted at the location of the Guest House. It is within easy walk to the city center, although if you want to take the bus, there is a bus just outside the Guest House that will take you to the Royal Mile, and many Art Museums and Galleries. The rooms were very quiet and heated well. I was impressed with how clean the rooms were as well. It was quite a surprise to find that for the entire 5 days of my trip it was sunny everyday in Edinburgh! It was a delightful stay, and I would highly recommend the Southside Guest House to anyone visiting Edinburgh. (Solo Traveller - USA California - November 2011)”


  • Southside Guest House Edinburgh “ Thank you once again Lynne and Franco for a delightful stay at Southside. It’s our third visit in less than 4 years and cannot wait to come back soon. Keep up the good work. (Couple- UK October - 2011 ) ”


  • Southside Guest House Edinburgh “ We stayed 3 nights Aug. 24 -27, during the busy festival season. My husband & I stayed in Room , which is probably the most beautiful room at the inn. It was decorated Art Deco style, with a four poster bed, leather couch, a sitting area, and French doors that opened up to a backyard garden. This was our first trip to Scotland, and we were so lucky to have found this gem! Our hosts, Franco & Lynne, are such lovely people. Breakfasts were cooked to order , you can have a full Scottish breakfast, and even a mimosa! Scotland has truly captivated us, and we can't wait to go back someday. We will come back to Southside. The city centre is a 15 minute walk, not far at all. City buses run all the time. We always felt safe in Edinburgh, even at night during festival. ( Couple -USA Florida - August 2011 ) ”


  • Southside Guest House Edinburgh “ Just a note to thank you very much for your kind hospitality when I stayed with you last week. I had a great time and your guest house is absolutely gorgeous as well as being so clean, plus a breakfast to die for! You looked after me very well and I will definitely stay with you next time I am Edinburgh. I wish you continued success. (Solo traveller -UK -August 2011 ) ”


  • Southside Guest House Edinburgh “ Your B&B was the highlight of our vacation in Scotland. We loved the breakfast and your wonderful hospitality. The location was absolutely perfect. Thank you for making our stay so special. ( Couple -USA California - July 2011 ) ”


  • Southside Guest House Edinburgh “ Very nice place to stay! Easy to book before the trip. Good communication. We stayed here in July 2011 for two nights. We met nice people and lovely hosts. Really good food was offered for breakfast. Additionally we got very helpful information for our tour! Well worth the money!!! We will definitely come back next time! (Couple - Germany - July 2011 ) ”


  • Southside Guest House Edinburgh “ Our family of four enjoyed two nights at Southside at the start of our 10 day UK vacation. We really enjoyed all aspects of our stay., The rooms were comfortable, clean and well appointed. We even took advantage of the DVD library one night. Franco and Lynne are very accommodating, warm and friendly hosts. Our inbound flight from Chicago was delayed and caused us to arrive quite late. This was no problem for Southside, and Franco met us when we finally arrived, got us settled and was very helpful with information. Then our daughter left her beloved stuffed animal at the guest house, but Franco and Lynne were able to locate it and kept it safe until our return to Edinburgh to drop off the rental car. The guest house is very conveniently located near the Meadows and all major attractions are within an easy walk. The breakfasts were really excellent - the meats are supurb. One morning, the special was vennison sausage. Wow! If we are ever able to return to Edinburgh, we would definitely stay at Southside again. ( Family - USA Illinois - July 2011 ) ”


  • Southside Guest House Edinburgh “ I stayed here with my husband and with my sister who was visiting us in the UK from the States. We had a charmed week as the weather was so good! The owners were on holiday but we were well looked after by Derek and Coranne who were extremely helpful and the breakfasts were lovely with all sorts of delightful extras in addition to the traditional Scottish breakfast. The house itself is full of character and has a pleasant atmosphere. Our room overlooked the street and I was initially concerned there would be a lot of traffic noise. However, the road was actually very quiet during the night and the house itself was quiet. Our room was enormous. I loved the polished wooden floors and all the different decor styles and colours throughout the house, which makes it a very memorable place. There is a pub opposite and great Italian restaurant just down the road. Well served by local buses, 5 mins to Princes Street. We only regretted not being able to stay longer but will definitely stay at Southside in the future. ( Family - UK - July 2011 ) ”


  • Southside Guest House Edinburgh “ We had a great stay at Southside. We were warmly greeted and allowed to stow our baggage, even though we arrived long before check-in. We were given lots of helpful tips and directions. Breakfast was lovely. There were several great restaurant and pub options in the immediate vicinity, and the city center was only a 15-20 minute walk. The room was immaculate and the decor was really interesting. Overall, a great value for your money in Edinburgh. (Couple - USA Texas - June 2011 ) ”


  • Southside Guest House Edinburgh “My girlfriend and I stayed here for a romantic trip to Edinburgh. We booked the room in a hurry and didn't really have much time to research the guest house, but when we arrived our concerns were instantly put at ease. The couple who run the place are wonderful. Super friendly and attentive, they made our stay an absolute pleasure. We stayed in one of the suites, it was honestly on par with a deluxe room at the London Hilton Hotel (which obviously cost considerably more money). We had a four-poster bed, a comfy couch and a lovely collection of soaps and smellies to keep the missus happy. The breakfast at Southside was honestly one of the highlights of our entire visit to Edinburgh, when we saw the array of beautiful breakfast staples we wanted everything! Then we were offered the hot breakfast menu (everything was inclusive with the room) and we soon realized that we'd ordered perfection on a plate. We love Southside! (Couple - UK - June 2011 ) ”


  • Southside Guest House Edinburgh “ My husband and I recently enjoyed a three night stay at the lovely and gracious Southside Guest House. The location of the house is excellent, within walking distance of everything you might want to see and also convenient to buses. The house is decorated beautifully and provided a restful ambience. We took the Highland Tour option and thoroughly enjoyed the tour day with Timberbush Tours, as recommended and arranged by Lynn and Franco. The breakfasts were wonderful and would suit all guest's tastes and preferences. The Southside experience felt like being a resident in this great city and was far preferable to a big hotel. The only (and I mean only) thing that was less than perfect was the bed in the suite as it was not comfortable for us. I could not bear to mention it to Franco and Lynne as it seemed too petty to do so when all else was so perfect. A pillow topper would make it absolutely perfect! All in all, the guest house provided an excellent visit and we would highly recommend the Southside to anyone wanting to enjoy an authentic Edinburgh experience and a delightful home away from the bustle of the city. (Couple - Canada - June 2011 ) ”


  • Southside Guest House Edinburgh “My recent stay at the Southside Guesthouse was wonderful. The house itself is incredibly welcoming, you really feel like you are going home each night you return. The owners couldn't have been nicer. They knew me by name and the morning breakfast was excellent. They even made special accomodations for me when I had to leave early one morning for a day trip. The added bonus is that you feel like you are staying in a neighborhood in Edinburgh and are not far from all of the main attractions. ( Solo Traveller -UK - May 2011 ) ”


  • Southside Guest House Edinburgh “I recently spent nearly a week in the Highlands and made my way back to Edinburgh for a couple night's stay and the Southside Guest House was fantastic. I had the small, single-sized room - #7 to be precise - and it was exactly what I needed to see Edinburgh and also have a base to relax, if needed. I can't say enough about how welcoming the owners were as they were THE best B&B hosts I'd ever experienced. I highly recommend this location and only hope to return at some point (Solo Traveller - USA - May 2011 ) ”


  • Southside Guest House Edinburgh “ South Side BB is a fabulous place to stay. The rooms were extra clean, spacioius, comfy bed, and it simply felt like home. The location is quiet, near Arthur's Seat, but wonderful after a long day in the Old and New Town... it was nice to get back to what felt like a real home. We walked everywhere and took public transport to get to and from airport. Edinburgh is a magical city and Lynne and Franco added to this magic. We will recommend and be back! ( Couple - Spain - May 2011 ) ”


  • Southside Guest House Edinburgh “Lovely owners. Brilliant room on bottom floor at the back. It was perfect for exploring the city but a bus ride away. Really clean rooms. Homely and accommodating service. Thoriughly enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone who wants value for money. (Couple - Ireland - June 2011 ) ”


  • Southside Guest House Edinburgh “ I stayed with my teenage daughter at Southside; we'd booked in for two nights but due to an emergency at home had to leave after one. Lynne and Franco were really kind and understanding about our need for an early departure. Unfortunately we only had one breakfast but it was lovely, lots of choice and everything is so clean! We stayed in a twin room which was a good size, lovely decor and welcoming tea and coffee making facilities with nice biscuits! The guest house is in a good location, you can walk to Edinburgh city centre in around 20 minutes. We enjoyed our stay and will return if we go back to Edinburgh. ( Family - UK - April 2011 ) ”


  • Southside Guest House Edinburgh “ This is just how a guesthouse should be. Tastefully decorated, clean, pleasant owners, and a wonderful breakfast with free-range eggs and a veggie alternative on offer. I will return! ( Solo Traveller - UK - March 2011 ) ”


  • “
  • Southside Guest House Edinburgh Franco & Lynne run a wonderful guest house strategically located in a great part of Edinburgh. My daughter is studying at the University of Edinburgh and Southside was located in close proximately to her flat. The breakfasts were wonderful, the room grand and the hospitality of the owners was beyond compare. ( Solo Traveller - USA New York - February 2011 ) ”


  • Southside Guest House Edinburgh “ This is an amazing guest house . It was no trouble to arrive very late ( 10PM) to check-in. Franco and Lynne had given clear instructions on how to collect our keys and the location of our rooms with no complications. Our room was very big and stylishly decorated with lovely furniture and pictures. The bathroom is big and hot which was brilliant. We met Franco at breakfast and there is a huge choice in which to pick your favourite foods so everyone would be satisfied if they stayed here. My friend and I were pleasantly surprised when we were offered bucks fizz at breakfast but due to our sore heads from drinking the night before, reluctantly declined. The guesthouse is in a central location and great for sightseeing. All the food, bathroom toiletries, tea and biscuits in the room and bottled water, were of good quality with free wifi connections. Due to the fact that we had an early flight the next day, Lynne very kindly left a breakfast container in our room consisting of fruit, cheese, biscuits, juice,cereal bar and a muffin. A lovely touch to end our great experience. It should be no surprise that we will return to this guesthouse and forget the idea of going to a hotel in Edinburgh because this place gives you value for money and is in a great location, with stylish rooms, great food with the personal touch of Franco and Lynne. Hence a big THANK YOU from Gwen and Michelle....until the next time ( Couple – UK - March 2011 ) ”


  • Southside Guest House Edinburgh “I stayed in Southside with my partner, mother, father, brothers, sisters, aunties and uncles for 4 days over our wedding. The Hotel was fantastic with the attention to detail, friendliness at the highest level. The breakfasts are wonderful - my mother particularly liked the Buck's Fizz! I can't see why anyone would stay anywhere else! (Family - UK February – 2011 ) ”


  • Southside Guest House Edinburgh “ We were in Edinburgh for a wedding, and my son booked the whole house. We all stayed in the greatest comfort and were made more than welcome by our hosts Franco and Lynn. It was much more personal than staying in a hotel, and the breakfast each morning was truly magnificent. We wanted for nothing. I will highly recommend this to all my Australian friends. ( Family - Australia - February 2011 ) ”


  • Southside Guest House Edinburgh “ Both times we have stayed here, we've arrived late evening from the airport, but the instructions received beforehand, and the info left in the room for us still made us completely welcome. The place has such character with a good eclectic selection of DVDs and books, nice decorative touches (with a mix of old and contemporary). Free wifi and all the usual tea/coffee/biscuits too (there's a jug for fresh milk if you like). If we were ever to run a B&B, this is exactly how we'd like it to be. In the morning you couldn't ask for a warmer welcome from Franco (Lynn being busy in the kitchen), and the breakfast selection is terrific for carnivores and vegetarians alike. A proper vegetarian breakfast, mind - not just a full English with the meat removed like we've had elsewhere! I seriously cannot fault it. I myself loved the venison sausages that were on special (I even took a picture so I could make my son jealous - sad, I know!). The area is useful for the odd restaurant and pub, so finding an evening meal locally was very easy. Bus stop close by too. Both Lynn and Franco are so accommodating and friendly without being overbearing, and I would absolutely recommend Southside to anyone. ( Family - USA January – 2011 ) ”


  • Selection from Guests Comments 2010 :

  • Southside Guest House Edinburgh “I thoroughly enjoyed my stay in your guest house last week. It's a great place to stay! ( Solo Traveller – England - December 2010 ) ”


  • Southside Guest House Edinburgh “My husband and I stayed here for a week for our honeymoon. We were greeted on arrival and given excellent directions to a lock up for our car which was a five minute walk away from the guest house. The room / suite was beautiful and Franco and Lynne ‘s love of art was evident throughout the guesthouse. The breakfast was to die for and everything was fresh and beautifully cooked to order. The guest house was a pleasant 20 minute walk to Princes street and 10 minutes walk from Arthurs seat. We loved our time here and will visit again! ( Couple- England - November 2010 ) ”


  • Southside Guest House Edinburgh “ The location is ideal, walking distance from Princes St with a private parking space. The room was very elegant and interesting with some Picasso drawings and comfortable old furniture, a view on the pretty gardens at the back and so perfectly clean. A warm good looking bathroom again spotlessly clean, a powerful shower but a little bit too much like "une douche ecossaise" which means varying from hot to cold and vice-versa. Lovely towels and delicious teas, biscuits and hot chocolate to make it such a relaxing stay. The breakfast is so good, hmm, with fresh fruits and juice, warm but not soggy toast, plenty of hot tea and succulent Scottish "Full Monty" and a glass of champagne with freshly squeezed orange juice to finish. Our hosts are very friendly and the whole atmosphere in the hotel is relaxing. This is maybe the best BB which we visited. (Couple – Scotland -November 2010 ) ”


  • Southside Guest House Edinburgh “Thank you for a wonderful stay, all the reviews I’d read were true to their word. I shall be recommending you to my friends and will look you up if I come to Edinburgh again. Thank you again for your help. ( Couple – England – August 2010 ) ”


  • Southside Guest House Edinburgh “Just a short email to say thank you.  We had a lovely stay with you and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Breakfast was excellent and we have missed those being back at work this week and not having much time for breakfast.  We hope to see you again when we are next in Edinburgh. Kind regards ( Couple – England – July 2010 ) ”


  • Southside Guest House Edinburgh “You are both perfectly wonderful hosts.  We will, of course, also recommend the Southside to any of our friends who might be visiting Edinburgh in the future. ( Couple – USA – July 2010 ) ”


  • Southside Guest House Edinburgh “Trato muy amable por parte tanto de Franco como de Lynne, Desayuno fenomenal con varias opciones a cual mαs estupenda. Habitaciones muy bonitas y limpias con un baρo hermoso y luminoso (ϊnica pega, nuestra habitaciσn estaba en el segundo piso, sin ascensor). Muy bien comunicado con el centro, con parada de bus a 100 metros y varias lνneas disponibles tanto para ir al centro como a los puntos turνsticos. Perfectamente recomendable. Si volvemos a Edimburgo volveremos a Southside Guest House. (Couple – Spain - June 2010 ) ”


  • Southside Guest House Edinburgh “ Marvellous place to stay a very manageable 15 minute walk from the centre of Edinburgh. Very well maintained and comfortable. Fabulous hosts with Franco and Lynne, can honestly say that nothing was too much trouble for them, but nonetheless unobtrusive. You'd also need to travel a fair while to find a better breakfast in Edinburgh, but then why would you want to? (Solo Traveller - England - June 2010 ) ”


  • Southside Guest House Edinburgh “After spending our second weekend at Southside guesthouse my partner and I can safely say it was again a joy to stay there. The hospitality was excellent and the breakfast was the best we'd ever had - truly spoilt! Thank you - and hopefully see you again next year. ( Couple – England – May 2010 ) ”


  • Southside Guest House Edinburgh “Had a wonderful stay at Southside Guest House, our hosts were very welcoming, our room superb, and that breakfast wow. I highly recommend this place (Couple – Australia - May 2010 ) ”


  • Southside Guest House Edinburgh “I am now back home in Toronto, but I just wanted to drop you both a note to let you know how much I enjoyed my stay at Southside. I have to say that the breakfast I had there was by far ,the best breakfast I ever ate at any bed and breakfast that I've stayed at so far during my travels around Europe (and I've been to quite a few countries.) I especially enjoyed the classical music in the breakfast room.   The hospitality and warm atmosphere at Southside will not be forgotten. I have wonderful memories of my trip to Edinburgh and that includes the five days I spent at Southside. The next time I visit I know where I'll be staying. I will highly recommend your B&B to my family and friends. ( Single Traveller – Canada – May 2010 ) ”


  • Southside Guest House Edinburgh “What can I say about Southside? It's just so nice. I think it's the attention to detail that makes it. The dιcor is stylish, our room felt more like a suite than just a room and the breakfast was outstanding for choice and quality. If you're driving to Edinburgh it's worth booking early and claiming one of their off-road parking spaces to avoid the usual Edinburgh parking problems. It's also very straightforward to get there if you come round the by-pass and then head in. From Southside it's a good 15 minute walk into the centre, but you do get to walk past one of Edinburgh's excellent vintage clothes shops (Armstrong’s). There are also plenty of good pubs and restaurants in the immediate vicinity if you don't fancy the stroll. (Couple – England - April 2010 ) ”


  • Southside Guest House Edinburgh “This place is listed in the Lonely Planet Guide to Edinburgh as one of the top 5 Coolest Guest Houses - I didn't know that before I booked, but can understand why. Beautiful, comfortable rooms, friendly, personal and attentive service, amazing breakfasts and an easy 20 minute stroll into the city centre. This is a great base for exploring the city, and a welcome place to return to. I was with my 10 year old, and whilst I wouldn't say this is the right place for tiny tots, it's just right for 10+, with DVD players in the rooms, Blockbusters 5 minutes walk away, loads of affordable restaurants in the vicinity and a 'well cool' playground in the park just a couple of streets away. Our experience was a total pleasure from start to finish, and not one that many 4 star hotels could match. ( Family – England - February 2010 ) ”


  • Selection from Guests Comments 2009 :

  • Southside Guest House Edinburgh “ The thoughtful owners of Southside keep a beautiful B&B - clean, modern, friendly, and with a superb breakfast. No complaints at all, and if I ever come back to Edinburgh I will certainly have Southside at the top of my list. (Solo Traveller - England -December – 2009) ”


  • Southside Guest House Edinburgh “ We stayed in two rooms for an extended weekend holiday. Both rooms were very comfortable, clean and cozy. The welcome was warm, genuine, and very helpful. The breakfast is top notch. I can't think of a better place to stay in Edinburgh (Family - USA – December – 2009) ”


  • Southside Guest House Edinburgh “ Thank you Lynne and Franco for a wonderful stay at your historic and lovely home. I have travelled far and wide and yours is a most wonderful place to stop and take stock. I appreciated all the little details (in service to your guest) as well as your environmental awareness (especially like that you provide luxury shower, shampoo and moisturizer in large bottles rather than the usual throw-away hotel kits). The sense of aesthetic, the lovely music at breakfast and the breakfast itself were all superb. I came to Edinburgh to sit professional exams at the Surgeons Halls, leaving with the coveted 'pass' and memories of having stayed at a very special place. Many thanks (Solo Traveller – England – September – 2009) ”


  • Southside Guest House Edinburgh “ We stayed for 4 nights and enjoyed our stay very much. Franco and Lynne were most helpful with anything you wanted. The room was large, very comfortable and even had a bathtub (you have to be prepared to walk to the 3rd floor - it was worth it). The breakfast was outstanding, the best one of our 2 week stay in Scotland. The Gathering was our main reason for our trip to Scotland and was well worth it (Couple – Canada – August – 2009) ”


  • Southside Guest House Edinburgh “ Our stay in Edinburgh was great and a lot of that had to do with our wonderful suite at the Southside Guest House. The room was very tastefully decorated and had all the amenities that we needed provided for us. The breakfasts offered in the mornings of our stay were simply outstanding in their quality and variety. I would recommend this excellent B&B to anyone who is looking for a wonderful and relaxing place to stay while they are in Edinburgh (Couple – Canada – August – 2009) ”


  • Southside Guest House Edinburgh “ Lovely place with a nice atmosphere and very friendly staff. The breakfast was excellent. They have free Wi-Fi Internet and you can borrow books and dvd's from a bookshelf. You have a tv and a dvd-player in your room. Comfortable and soft bed with several pillows. They have thought of almost every little detail. Very recommended (Couple – Sweden – July – 2009) ”


  • Southside Guest House Edinburgh “ This B&B was recommended to us by friends, and we are in their debt. The guest house, is perfectly located about 20 minutes walk from the heart of the city, in an area near the university that is bracketed by two large parks and that offers a number of excellent restaurants, theatres and shops. Our stay at the Southside was one of the things that made our trip to Edinburgh so successful, and I would certainly return there on a future trip (Couple – USA – July 2009) ”


  • Southside Guest House Edinburgh “ I had a warm welcome when I arrived. I stayed in the single ensuite room for 4 nights. The room was spacious, bright, fresh and clean. I had a selection of refreshments and biscuits to choose from, telephone access and digital television. The dining room was well set out. There was a selection of cereals, fresh fruit, muffins and flapjacks and not forgetting the Southside grill which was the most enjoyable fry up I have ever had. I was surprised to be offered a glass of buck’s fizz every morning with my breakfast which of course I gratefully accepted. If you are looking for a comfortable friendly fresh place to stay in Edinburgh I would highly recommend Southside guest house (Solo Traveller – England – June – 2009) ”


  • Southside Guest House Edinburgh “ On arrival, your hosts Franco and Lynn are helpful, attentive and friendly. This sets the scene for the whole of your stay at Southside. The rooms are immaculate, with fresh mints on your pillow and tea and biscuits every day. Breakfast is a two course affair! With a buffet to help yourself to and then a cooked second course of a full cooked breakfast or smoked salmon and scrambled eggs cooked to perfection (Couple – England – June _ 2009) ”


  • Southside Guest House Edinburgh “ I had the good luck to stay at Southside Guesthouse for the first 2 nights of a five-week trip to the UK and Europe. I couldn’t have had a better start. My room was small but very comfortable, and the breakfast served each day was the best I had in my entire trip. Franco and Lynne were both charming and helpful. I soon learned the value of Southside’s location: within a Ό mile there are many little restaurants, all good, and every shop or convenience I needed. The buses go by every 5 minutes, and it’s an easy 15 minute walk to the Royal Mile. The neighbourhood is interesting during the day and quiet in the night. This is a elegant guest house in a great location (Solo Traveller – Canada – June – 2009) ”


  • Southside Guest House Edinburgh “ Southside GH offers an ideal place to stay in Edinburgh: lovely rooms, sparkling clean, delicious breakfast. What raises Southside to a higher level, however, are the owners. One can travel a long time before finding such nice people. You have the sense that you are the guest in the home of good friends. Some of the rooms make ideal romantic retreats, with four-poster beds and plenty of space. The inn sits near a major intersection, which provides the plus of frequent bus service to city center (5-7 minutes by bus). You can easily walk to the castle, museums, etc: it's about 20 minutes on foot to the castle. The walk takes you by the University and the lively student quarter, with many charming coffee houses (personal favorite, the aptly named Black Medicine). The slight downside of the location is traffic noise early in the morning (I had a front room). In the evening, in contrast, traffic dies down by 8 and I did not hear much noise. I'm an early riser, so I did not care, but if you want to sleep in, I'd suggest a room at the back, not facing the street. (Solo Traveller – USA – May – 2009) ”


  • Southside Guest House Edinburgh “This has to be one of the best guesthouses we have ever stayed in . The location is great with just a short walk to the centre and the rooms are clean, comfortable and individual. Breakfasts were outstanding with a great choice and cooked to perfection. It is obvious Lynne and Franco are passionate about what they do and the result is a most enjoyable stay. We will definitely be returning. (Couple – England – April 2009) ”


  • Southside Guest House Edinburgh “We have now returned form our vacation and wanted to thank you for your part in the wonderful time spent in Edinburgh. It was a marvelous.  The Guest House was all we had envisioned and the breakfast left nothing to be desired.  Thank you for your warm hospitality and time spent to guide us to ensure we maximized our time in the beautiful city of Edinburgh.  We hope to make a return visit . (Couple – Canada– March - 2009) ”


  • Southside Guest House Edinburgh “My wife and I spent 2 blissful nights at this charming establishment . Lynne and Franco were the most gracious and friendly hosts. Our room was beautifully decorated, spacious and very comfortable. The Guest House is well located with a short walk to Edinburgh Castle and the Golden Mile. Breakfast was a treat, with a buffet and a la carte offerings. We would certainly stay at this guest house again. (Couple – Australia – March 2009) ”


  • Southside Guest House Edinburgh “Dear Lynne and Franco, Thank you for a delightful stay . Everything was so tasteful and the breakfast delicious. Thank you for all your handy tips. We hope to return. (Couple – USA – March 2009) ”


  • Southside Guest House Edinburgh “We spent a most enjoyable week-end at Southside & would recommend it to anyone .The guest house was tastefully decorated, exceptionally clean & the food was excellent, very good quality & tastefully served & prepared by the hosts. The breakfast had something to suit everyone’s taste, quality, sums it all up. We will definitely be going back to this guest house which is so very convenient for the attractions that Edinburgh has to offer. (Couple – Scotland – March 2009) ”


  • Southside Guest House Edinburgh “ We had no problem finding the guest house after an early flight - a 20 minute walk from the airport bus stop in the centre of Edinburgh - and we warmly greeted by Franco. We were able to leave our luggage until the room was ready, and walked back into Edinburgh through Holyrood Park. On our return to Southside, our case was in the room, and we noticed all the little extras - tea, coffee, biscuits, bottled water, and mints. The room was very comfortable, the bathroom luxurious. Plenty of places to eat within a very short distance. Breakfast was excellent - such a variety, so many choices - and no, we didn't need any lunch after that, even with sightseeing for most of the day. Franco and Lynne were marvellous hosts. On our last day, once again we were able to leave our luggage, and were given a front door key so that we could pick it up in time for our evening flight. All in all an excellent city break with no complaints whatsoever. (Couple – Wales – March 2009) ”


  • Southside Guest House Edinburgh “Southside Guest House was a wonderful experience for us.  Lynne and Franco were attentive hosts who are proud of their business and made us feel very much at home.  As it was our first stay in Scotland, they suggested sights to see which was very helpful.  It is near enough to town to walk, and with bus routes nearby, that is easy also.  The breakfasts were above and beyond and started each day in a great way.  We'd love to return and would recommend it without hesitation or reservation .  (Couple – USA– February - 2009) ”
