Positive Reviews

Warm and accommodating service

The Sonas Guest House's customer service was commended by virtually all past guests. It has been stated that the owner and employees of the guest house are incredibly welcoming, warm and helpful overall.

Cosy and spotlessly clean rooms

For the most part, the rooms were a highlight for many former visitors that stayed at the guest house. Along with being supposedly comfortable and well-appointed, the rooms were regularly judged as immaculately clean in every area.

Off-street parking a bonus

For previous guests that travelled to the Sonas Guest House in their own vehicle, the on-site parking provided was a definite plus point. It has been stated that there are plenty of off-street parking spaces available.

Negative Reviews

Not ideal for Edinburgh city centre

The location of the Sonas Guest House, despite being perfectly fine for most, is regarded as not the most convenient for Edinburgh city centre or nearby attractions. The city centre, for example, is approximately 25-30 minutes away on foot from the guest house.

Rooms small in certain areas

Whilst they were typically considered to be of a good size in general, certain aspects of the rooms were described as small. In a small minority of the rooms, both the ceilings and beds have been labelled small and limited in terms of size.

Simple but wonderfully formed guest house

Although it lacks any form of on-site recreational space, this has not stopped many from having a wonderful time when staying at the guest house. From the immaculate service to the inviting rooms, nearly all aspects of the Sonas Guest House were praised - creating a memorable experience for nearly all past visitors.
