Ravelston House

182 N High St, Musselburgh EH21 6BH, UK – 0131 665 2478

Stayed two nights and found it to be excellent value for money. The rooms are exceptionally modern and very clean. The bathroom and shower awesome. The bar and restaurant provide a great menu and again exceptional service. This is a professional managed establishment. Well done guys.

UPDATE: Had another lovely meal here today (2nd Oct 2017). Great service, food was outstanding. I am reviewing the restaurant which has a high level of decor, especially the lovely slate wall, large windows onto the garden. The food here is cooked fresh so please be patient it is worth it. Food is very good as is the friendly service. One of the few places to do both decaf coffee and tea.

Best Western Kings Manor Hotel

100 Milton Rd E, Edinburgh EH15 2NP, UK – 0844 387 6081

This has been my 2nd stay at this hotel. Friendly and welcoming staff who are very helpful. Location is a great a short stroll to the beach and 30 minutes away from Edinburgh itself. Rooms are spacious and clean. Breakfast is delicious and just what u need to start the day. The use of the leisure facilities is an added bonus.

Pleasant twin room with slightly smaller bed than expected but comfortable nonetheless. Good spa and pool area with jacuzzi, sauna and steam room. Would have given it Five Stars if the spa booking had been taken properly, however they did not take my telephone number at the time of booking and one of the Therapists was unavailable so had to reduce treatment time. This was my hen do, so I was as you would expect very disappointed by this, however the treatments received were offered free of charge. The Therapist and reception staff were all apologetic and lovely. Did not dine or drink here so cannot comment on restaurant or bar. Would definitely visit again.

Prestonfield House

Prestonfield House, Priestfield Rd, Edinburgh EH16 5UT, UK – 0131 225 7800

Superficially beautiful but at £40/head for a very average afternoon tea with 1 glass of champagne it wasn't special. The service was 50%: forgot the sweetener, tea was stewed & pot too big. Partners gluten free scones ghastly & soggy. Jam, cream & sandwiches lovely. Tea strainers seen better days. Atleast our dogs were made welcome unlike all similar hotels in Edinburgh.

Lovely lovely lovely place! Felt like our own little countryside get away. The property is tranquil and cozy. The staff are friendly and hospitable and the food was an absolute delight. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back in the future. The Benjamin Franklin Suite is a must

Pubs, Gastro Pubs and Bars

The Sheep Heid Inn

43-45 The Causeway, Edinburgh EH15 3QA, UK – 0131 661 7974

I was in that pub a week ago. That pub is with really good atmosphere and history but the service in the pub was terrible. Very bad service on the bar and very slow waitress. U can wait ur orders for hours and after that they tell u we just forgot about it. But the food really was great and delicious. The pub is not the cheapest and there are always a lot of people and the management should improve the quality of the staff. Get the people opportunity to order the food on the bar and it can solve the problem.

This place is lovely. It is quite a distance is you are coming from the city centre by foot but well worth the walk. Food was lovely, drinks were great and prices weren't too bad either. We had live entertainment outside whilst we were there as well as some lovely barbecue food. One other thing to add, it's also claimed to be the oldest pub in Scotland so is noteworthy stop off point for any Scottish trip.

Radical Road pub

229 Willowbrae Rd, Edinburgh EH8 7ND, UK – 0131 656 6821

It's a family friendly pub where you can sit down and eat & have a drink in peace. Good quality food and drinks

Great atmosphere, friendly staff, great music

Guild of Foresters

40 Portobello High St, Edinburgh EH15 1DA, UK – 0131 669 2750

Brilliant local place, cosy and welcoming feel to it and the staff are always friendly and quick to provide service. Dogs allowed in part of the interior but there is also heated sheds in the back which are great in the summer or winter. No complaints about this place at all!

Jut had lunch here. It's got great food and great atmosphere. It's situation is right on the High Street. It's dog friendly too which helps lots of people in Porty as so many have dogs. Lovely time thank you.

Travel Super Market search and compare prices for hotels all over the world. Could also be useful for you. I This said I was told by a hotelier that the way to get cheap rooms is to ring up the week before and ask for the weekend rate. You can usually get an absolute bargain as they will trying to book all the rooms that they have not sold! Could be worth a try!

Bed & Breakfast Accommodation plus Guesthouses

Seabreeze Bed and Breakfast (by the Edinburgh's Seaside)

1 Seaview Terrace, Edinburgh EH15 2HD, UK – 07825 157540

We stayed for 2 nights in August. Salma is a wonderful friendly host, top notch breakfast. Clean comfy rooms. The view from the front steps of this B&B are amazing. Close to beach for a nice stroll. Thanks again if we make it back to Scotland will stay again! The Johnson's

Short stay in Edinbrugh at Seabreeze lovely clean and the owner Salma can't be faulted really friendly and helpful I will be back

The Cameron Bed & Breakfast

5 Cameron Terrace, Edinburgh EH16 5LD, UK – 070 9330 3544

Convenient location, clean, great breakfast, and Wendy is a great host; she makes you feel like a welcome friend.

Lovely stay. Thanks Wendy

Straven Guest House

3 Brunstane Rd N, Edinburgh EH15 2DL, UK – 0131 669 5580

The hosts are nice and try to make you feel welcome. Breakfast was in the upper third that we had on our trip, except for the porridge. It is very close to the beach, with a nice walk on it. Some restaurants and pubs close by. Portobello provides you with all necessities and it's close enough to Edinburgh to go in by bus and see the sights there. I give it 4 stars though because of the bed. We were promised a king size bed but got a tiny double with a broken mattresse. They only have one king size bed in this B&B and the room with it was just being renovated. With bigger beds and new mattresses it would be a 5 star place.

We stayed at Stravinsky House for our honeymoon! Chris was an excellent host and made us feel at home! The breakfast is amazing and the rooms are cozy! I would highly recommend staying here!

If you would like something truly different you might like to have a look at Airbnb. These are mostly B and Bs provided by people on a very informal basis. The may have a spare room, a yurt, a cottage or a barge with space they can receive guests for a night or a month! The website is highly professional. You can really see what you are going to get. Very well worth a look. Airbnb also show 'conventional' B&Bs as well. Enjoy!

Holyrood Park

Queen's Dr, Edinburgh EH8 8HG, UK – 0131 652 8150

Most beautiful park in any European city I've ever visited. It's so much more than a regular park. If you love the outdoors, it's a must-do. Arthur's seat is challenging but the views over the city and surroundings is so rewarding.

Beautiful wild space in the city centre, and amazing history, starting with a volcano 350m years ago, through several ice ages and all of human history. You can see remains of Iron Age roundhouses, walk ancient trails, and look out over this amazing city.

Youth Hostels have very much come of age. Gone are the days of iron beds and communal wash basins. Click below for a Youth Hostel near in Edinburgh. You will be pleasently surprised at what is one offer.
