Positive Reviews

Owners are extremely helpful.

Visitors to Edinburgh will be able to explore the city's highlights thanks to local information shared by the proprietors of Ashdene House. They are happy to answer any question guests have and are eager to share inside information to make holidays great.

Property is well maintained and presented.

This guesthouse is extremely clean and provides comfortable rooms for visitors. Not only is everything spotless, but furnishing choices present a warm and well maintained accommodation.

Located near many attractions.

Ashdene House is located just outside of the capital's main areas, allowing for a quiet accommodation. However, it is still easy to see all the highlights of the Scottish capital by using the nearby bus stop or easily reaching the centre on foot.

Negative Reviews

Finding parking is a challenge.

There isn't much space around the guesthouse for visitors to park. Many of the surrounding roads are restricted to parking only for residents, and some guests will have to search several blocks away just to find a place for their vehicle.

Guestrooms tend to feel cramped.

Some guests feel the private rooms at Ashdene House are on the small side. This is magnified by the large beds and furniture pieces that take up much of the space, and can make the room feel cramped.

Extended breakfast service is needed.

While guests really enjoy the breakfasts offered at this guest house, not every visitor will have the chance to try it. The dining time is a relatively small window early in the morning. People on a holiday break would appreciate a later service, or expanded hours, to ensure they get some food too.
