Positive Reviews

The staff has you at hello

The charming, friendly staff welcomes you with a smile, making you feel instantly at home. Nothing is too much trouble. They are knowledgeable about all things Edinburgh including its fascinating history and the best places to dine, drink and shop. In addition, they can arrange for day tours of the Highlands for their guests.

A great central location

Although it's located on a quiet residential street, Amaryllis Guesthouse is within walking distance of lots of restaurants, pubs, theatre, shopping and walking areas as well as many of the city's most popular tourist destinations.

This is a non-smoking property

It's so nice for non-smokers when the hotel they've chosen offers a 100% smoke free policy. This is the case at this guesthouse where smoking is prohibited both inside and out.

Negative Reviews

One guest room does not have en suite facilities

One of the guest rooms here doesn't have en suite facilities which can be problematic for those who like their privacy. If you prefer a room that does offer this feature, be sure to mention it when making your reservation.

There's no on-site parking

Amaryllis Guesthouse does not have on-site parking which leaves you to have to fend for yourself. They can make arrangements for your car to be parked in a lot nearby, but you have to park it yourself and there is a daily fee attached.

Breakfast is limited

Breakfast is limited at this guesthouse both in the number of the choices offered and the time in which breakfast is served, which has a span of 45 minutes. However, they will make you sandwiches to go if you have to depart earlier than the allotted mealtime.
