Negative Reviews

Parking can be a little tricky.

Auld Reekie Guest House is located on a busy road with limited parking. Those guests unlucky enough not to secure one of the guest house's two private parking spots are forced to park on the street, a proposition that reportedly proves trickier thanks to the main road parking being restricted by a bus lane.

Bathrooms are on the small side.

A number of guests are disappointed by the size of en suite bathrooms, which are said to be on the small side. Guests report that bathrooms, which have been added to the Victorian property in recent years, offer little room to manoeuvre.

Some issues with in-room heating.

Some visitors find heating to be an issue at the guest house. According to reports, the property's heating only comes on at set times of the day and night. As a result, during colder periods, some guests report rooms being chillier than they would like.
