Positive Reviews

A friendly Scottish welcome.

The hosts at Sherwood Guest House are delightful. They will do everything they can to make sure you are enjoying your stay and their knowledge of the local area is impeccable and really useful. Be sure to ask them what to see and do.

A handy location.

The hotel is positioned outside of the city centre but there is a regular bus service which departs from close by. You can walk to town in about half an hour as well. Getting to the train station takes about the same amount of time. It'll take you about ten minutes to get to Princes Street.

Rooms are decent.

The guestrooms are well-stocked and comfy. There is plenty of tea and coffee, as well as biscuits and toffees to enjoy. The Wi-Fi works very well in rooms as well, which isn't always the case in hotels.

Negative Reviews

You might struggle to park.

Sherwood Guest House does have a free car park, but there are only limited spaces. If the hotel is busy or if you arrive late, you might have to find an alternative place to leave your vehicle.

A bit of noise.

The property is positioned next to a busy road. While the double glazed windows do a good job of blocking out most of the sounds of the traffic, if you like to sleep with the window open then you'll definitely be affected by the noise.

Too cosy.

While some of the guestrooms are spacious, others are very much on the small side. There's not much space in which to spread yourself out.
