Positive Reviews

Handy location for exploring Edinburgh.

Whether visiting the Scottish capital for the first time or the 100th, this guesthouse will give travellers great access to many highlights. Its location in a peaceful neighbourhood belies the fact that it is near so many attractions, all which can easily be reached on foot or by bus.

An all around friendly atmosphere.

This guesthouse is extremely clean and comfortable, which creates a very inviting atmosphere. Also, the staff members are truly welcoming, which adds a positive note to many stays.

Guesthouse sees many returning visitors.

There's a lot about Ashgrove House that many people enjoy and causes them to be repeat visitors when in Edinburgh. At the guesthouse is plenty of off street parking and delicious breakfasts that add to an all around great value accommodation.

Negative Reviews

Noise can be an issue.

The walls between the private rooms at Ashgrove House tend to be thin. This causes a lot of noise to travel throughout the property which can impact the rest of some visitors.

Beds are too worn out for comfort.

Several people who stay at this guesthouse complain about the quality of rest they get. This is largely due to the beds which use mattresses that are in desperate need of replacement and are too cramped to be comfortable.

Some updates to the decor would help.

For more than a century and a half Ashgrove House has stood while adding modern fixtures to accommodate guests. One area still in need of some work is the decor. Antique furnishings are found throughout the property and give the guesthouse an old fashioned feel that isn't a hit with everyone.
