Clean, comfortable rooms

The rooms are comfy and clean Some of the upper floor rooms overlook a garden making for a quiet and peaceful rest The en suites are on the small side, but entirely adequate.

Good location for exploring Edinburgh

Although the Arrandale is a little away from the centre of things, many guest felt the hotel’s location was extremely convenient for getting just about anywhere in Edinburgh Taxis can be easily arranged or the bus stop is just a few meters away.

Overall excellent value

This is a no frills guest house, but the staff is helpful and overall it provides an excellent value You’ll be well looked after here.

Negative Reviews

A little far from town centre

The Arrandale is not centrally located You can walk into town and bus service is convenient and reliable, but if you like to be in the middle of activity, another place might suit your needs better.

Could use bigger kettles

A couple guests felt the kettles could be bigger.

Breakfast just okay

The majority of guests praised the breakfast spread, but a few found it just satisfactory Overall, this hotel received very high recommendations as a good, clean guesthouse with reasonable rates.
