The hosts were friendly & interesting, the location amazing. We wish we could have stayed longer! The weather was amazing & the beach was busy but if the weather had been bad there were games & DVDs provided. Breakfast was fresh & delicious & there was lots of choice. As a twin room you don't often get a sea view...

We only stayed two nights and wished we could have stayed longer. Warm, welcoming and relaxing - which was down to the hosts, Phil and Anne. We were blessed to have found Joppa Turrets and would echo the sentiments of the other reviews. It has everything you would want. Will definitely be returning.

I stay in Edinburgh probably once every three or four weeks and Joppa Turrets has everything you would want. Great hosts, clean well equipped bedrooms, fantastic views from your window, sheets that smelled fresh and to cap it all a great Scottish breakfast. Will definitely, definitely be back.

You are assured of a warm welcome from Anne and Phil at this small guest house, the city centre of Edinburgh is easily accessed by a regular bus service. There are lots of nice touches, from a chocolate on your pillow nightly to free wi-fi! A beautiful seaview from your bedroom, a nice quiet setting and hosts who go out...

Recently spent five enjoyable days at Joppa Turrets, wonderful location, sea views from window and woke every morning to the sound of waves. Easy to get in and out of the city on the bus, and lovely hosts.

We have just returned following a two night stay at Joppa Turretts. What a perfect location right on Portabello beach - we certainly had a room with a view and listening to the sea at night was wonderful.

My husband and I spent a few days at Jopppa Turretts and we have nothing but praise for it. The location is brilliant just overlooking the Portabello beach, with easy access to Edinburgh city centre. Anne and Phil were very welcoming and most helpful with advice and directions. We would thoroughly recommend it.
