Weekend Break
A very warm and welcoming stay from the owner who gave us useful information to make our stay even more enjoyable. The bus route from the Guest House made getting in and out of Edinburgh easy but it was also just as easy to walk in alongside Arthurs seat. The Guest house was comfortable and perfect for our family of 4 and the hearty breakfast set us up for the day ahead. Highly recommended place to stay.

Absolutely Wonderful B&b
My favorite B&B in Edinburgh. Catriona is a wonderful, friendly, helpful, welcoming hostess. Rooms are large and extremely comfortable. Room rates are very reasonable. Breakfast is great. Free Wi-Fi. Located in a quiet neighborhood just a short walk off the Dalkeith Road. About a 25 minute walk to City Centre, or a 15 minute bus ride from the Dalkeith Road. Highly recommend.

Very Pleasant Guest House
We found Rosevale a very comfortable and friendly place to stay, and great value for money. It is convenient for getting into Edinburgh by public transport although we walked the 2 miles each way. The owner was very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable about places to visit and about directions and bus routes. The room was clean and comfortable with everything you would require for a pleasant stay, and we enjoyed the breakfast very much. Kilmaurs Road is in a quiet area of town and there is on street parking which is a great advantage. All in all we had a very pleasant stay and would definitely consider staying here again when we return to Edinburgh in future. I think Rosevale is scores excellent for a mid range guest house.

My Favorite B&b In Edinburgh
Catriona is an incredibly welcoming, friendly, helpful and wonderful hostess. As a solo traveler, my ensuite room was large and comfortable with a view of Arthur's Seat. Breakfast was delicious. Located in a lovely, quiet neighborhood about a 20-30 minute walk from City Centre, or catch a bus which stops just a short walk from the B&B. Parking is free on the street. Excellent price for a quality B&B. I will definitely stay here again. Highly recommend.

Very Nice Guest House
We stayed at the Rosevale Guest House on our trip to Edinburgh. As we have never been to Edinburgh before, we chose this guest house after visiting the website It seemed to be very pleasant according to the pictures as well as to the reviews posted there. And last but not least we liked the location of the guest house. Not directly in the city centre, but near enough to get there fast. And after our stay we can proudly say that it was even better than assumed. The room was very comfortable, absolutely clean and nothing was worn. The lady of the house was absolutely lovely and the breakfast she provided truly excellent. It also took us not longer than 15 minutes to get to the city centre. All of our expectations were fulfilled and we really enjoyed our stay. We can recommend this guest house in every respect. Thanks a lot.

Homely Stay In Edinburgh
Katrina, our host, is very friendly and warm throughout our whole stay. The first day when we arrived, she even offered us the jackets as she was afraid we did not wear sufficient clothes as it is windy and with intermittent shower.

The room which we stayed in, although there may not be sufficient luggage space for 4 people, is clean and beds are cosy and comfortable. The toilet might be a little small but it is definitely sufficient and user-friendly. Note that you will need to bring your own shampoo though.

Breakfast had a lot of variety - cereal, yoghurt, fruits, toast bread, continental breakfast or cooked breakfast set (eggs, sausage, bacon and even traditional Scottish food eg. Haggies and Blood Pudding!). As there was a day which we had to leave early for a local tour, Katrina offered to pack breakfasts for us, which was really nice of her :)

the room was nice and clean, the breakfast was good too. the only negative aspect was the parking situation. on the website it says "with free parking on the street outside", which is misleading as about 90% of the parking space on that street is for residents only. i consequently had to move my car elsewhere as there were no free non-resident spots in the street.

Was Like Staying With Family!
Upon my arrival, I was immediately treated to spectacular hospitality. Helpful, knowledgeable, friendly and quite informative with regards to the "lay of the land". I was well equipped to navigate my way through Edinburgh. Room was huge, beds super comfortable & lovely view of "Arthur's seat", which I climbed... One of the best b&b's I've stayed at in the UK. Highly recommend staying there!

Excellent Guest House
My second time to stay here, very good value for money. The location is great, within walking distance of central Edinburgh but also a choice of buses within 2 mins walk. Owner is very friendly and helpful.Guaranteed a good nights sleep as the surrounding area is very quiet.A really lovely homely place to stay and a very good breakfast to start the day with. Looking forward to my next visit.

A Wonderful Stay
We had a fabulous stay. The street is quiet with free parking. It's a walk or quick bus ride into the city (bus stop near by).

The guest house is warm, comfortable and quiet. The breakfast is nice. The owner was lovely with the children. She gave us lots of information on bus numbers and fares. She gave us great ideas on where to go.

Thank you for having us. We will be back.

Clean And Comfortable
This hostel is a good choice for visiters. It was clean and comfortable. Me and my frieds enjoyed it. The hostel serves a delicius breakfast. The only thing they we do not like is that the hostel is not so close to city center but there are buses near from the hostel to city center. It tkaes 10 minutes to go city center by bus. Generally, we like it !

"Impressive" was my first reaction walking through Kilmaurs road to the Rosevale Guest House when I visited Edinburgh in September 2013. The neighborhood is quiet and friendly, and it has one of the best views to Arthur's Seat. I had this view from my room as well.

The owner is very friendly and offered to help in all sorts of things and we had nice chats during my stay.

The room was very spacious with a comfortable bed, nice TV, free WiFi and a clean bathroom.

The breakfast is great for such a small place and it tasted wonderful as well; very important for me as I usually keep walking all day visiting museums and sights.

The place is close to the city center, perhaps 20 minutes walk at most and there are buses every 10-15 minutes.

There are also some nice small restaurants and shops nearby so you don't have to go all the way to the city center for a snack or a drink.

Rosevale Guest House
Lovely quiet bed and breakfast. Very clean and comfortable with a great breakfast. I stayed for 2 nights and would definitely stay again. Catriona, the lady who runs the B&B is very friendly and extremely helpful. Plenty of information available to help you with planning your day/s. The B&B is on a bus route into town (5 mins round the corner) or if you prefer to walk, it's 20 mins into the centre and a 7 min walk to Pollock Halls.

A majestic landmark which dominates the capital city's skyline just as it has dominated Scotland's long and colourful history.

Perched on an extinct volcano and offering stunning views, this instantly recognisable fortress is a powerful national symbol, and part of Edinburgh's World Heritage Site.

Edinburgh is the breathtakingly beautiful capital of Scotland, an exciting place to visit at any time of year. Edinburgh offers you superb sightseeing, historic buildings to explore, quiet galleries and museums to intrigue you, thrilling new attractions to discover, serious shopping, a vast choice of excellent Restaurants, Bistros, Wine Bars, Pubs and Cafes, and nightlife to suit all tastes. When the Picts built a fort on a volcanic crag in the 5th century, to protect Scotland from the invading Angles of Northumberland, Edinburgh's history began. The present Castle, was built on the site by Michael Canmore (1057-93); his wife St. Margaret, built the chapel which you can still visit today.
