Excellent Guest House
We arrived before the normal check in time but our room was ready and Marina and Nicolette were more than helpful in giving us all the information we needed. They were very nice to us for our entire stay.
The location is outside of the centre but so easily accessible by bus (and still within walking distance) and ultimately the room price works out really well compared to 25% higher prices for rooms in the city.
The breakfast, like so many others have raved about, is excellent!
Our room was clean and had a nice bath and shower.
We are going to recommend Sandaig to friends and family and we hope to stay ere again in the future.

haven't had the opportunity to stay for a long time but have known it for over 10 years.
Comfortable stay, good nights sleep, and although not able to take full advantage of the full Scottish breakfast, I know it is excellent

Best Place To Stay
Stayed here march 2014. Lovely rooms with everything you need even a glass of wine. Breakfast service was excellent and the food good with plenty of choice. Ideal location with a bus stop outside to take you to the city centre and plenty of room to park your car would definitely stay here again

Lovely B&b
Stayed for a couple of nights with my daughter, whilst visiting her Uni (all being well this coming Sept).

The B&B was lovely, very welcoming staff, pretty room, nice touch with the free port, very clean and the food was excellent.

Right next to a bus stop, which takes you to Princes Street - couldn't be any easier to get into the city centre quickly.

Thoughly enjoyed our stay and it helped my daughter decide she loves Edinburgh - we'll be back.

Thank you.

Weekend At Sandaig
A beautiful yet understated guesthouse. We had a fantastic 2 nights at the Sandaig made even more pleasant with the professional yet welcoming staff member who looked after us both mornings at breakfast(which was amazing!!) Marina was open to help us with any concerns and made it her priority to make sure our stay was the best it could be. The room we were in was modern and up to date yet homely and inviting. We will definitely be coming back to The Sandaig and we would recommend it to anyone looking for a great guesthouse at a reasonable price, but not compromising on quality. Thank you for a fantastic weekend! :) Rachael and Jimmy x

A Hidden Jewel
Absolutely the most cozy & comfortable experience. The Sandaig Guest House an absolute hidden jewel. Sandaig Staff went above & beyond to make me feel comfortable & like a VIP. Well informed & knowledgeable staff and takes the worry & chaos and fret out of being in an unfamiliar country. They arrange taxis & packs a breakfast on the go if you have an early morning tours or early morning flights. I can't express what a delightful cozy guest house to stay with. Definitely book another stay with Sandaig House if I return again to Edinburgh,Scotland. Thank you again for making me feel cozy & welcomed and taking the stress out of travelling to a unfamiliar country.

We received a warm welcome to a lovely well kept reception area. The dining room was well presented and the residents lounge equipped with books, TV, dvd and sound system along with two big comfortable sofas. The communal areas are traditionally furnished but still bright and airy; and very warm as the heating was on when we stayed. Our room was in the gods with a lovely big bathroom and walk in shower. Again both were superbly presented and included a refreshment tray & a small decanter of sherry. Breakfast was huge and a good choice. Cereals, porridge, fruit followed by a cooked breakfast or variation of. Plenty tea and coffee and juice. Right beside a bus stop into town with free on street parking. Absolutely nothing not to like. Thank-you and we will be back.

My Mum & I stayed here for 2 nights recently and we were majorly impressed. Nicolette couldn't have been nicer when we were checking in and gave us great directions for walking in to the city centre on the first day. Nicolette was also so polite at breakfast and all our requests were met. This guesthouse is in a lovely location, a 30 minute walk in to the city centre or a 10 min bus ride. The buses are frequent and the bus stop is only a few seconds away from the the guesthouse. The guesthouse is so clean and very comfortable. There is a wide variety on offer for breakfast and the breakfasts are very tasty. I tried haggis for the first time here and loved it! We would both highly recommend staying here.

Fabulous Guest House Representing Great Value

I really like the Sandaig, it's a credit to the owners who redesigned the decor quite recently. The style is modern but with a classy, quality feel, the rooms are a good size and the showers tend to be larger and warm with decent pressure! Each room has it's own radio with iphone dock a kettle and a TV.

Breakfast is really good and if you're in a rush the owners are happy to make you a pack up and it keeps you going all day! In the evening there are plenty of excellent restaurants and bars in Leith just a 5 minute walk away. Ideal for city access, business travellers and couples who want to sample the nicer things.

Leith Links are opposite the hotel, this is a large grassy area where people walk dogs, go running and play games including football, it's really relaxing so I like to stay here and chill out after a busy day at work.

My wife and I have just returned from a wonderful weekend break at the sandaig guesthouse in leith, Edinburgh. The super king-size bed was a treat. The decor of the bedroom was delightful but even better was the scottish breakfast - a great way to start the day ! Well situated by leith links, It was about a 30 minute stroll to the city centre and cost us about £7 for a taxi return at night. Will certainly return.
