Stayed at the Classic Guest House for one night last week on a short visit to Edinburgh. Can only describe the establishment and service as excellent, In fact for future visits we won't consider staying anywhere else, I hope they will be able to accommodate us. Thanks for everything

We had the perfect room for 3 women traveling together -- 3 beds! We had plenty of room, breakfast was continental but delicious with fruit, croissants, hard boiled eggs, juices, coffee and tea. The gentleman who was 'helping out a friend who was on holiday' was very gracious and carried our luggage to and from our car! Great rate, great...

A perfect place to stay in Edinburgh. Situated in a quite resident area, just a few stops by bus to the centre. Cosy rooms, excellent breakfast and very friendly staff. We really enjoyed our stay in the Classic Guest House.

We enjoyed our stay here, The guest house is a couple of stops away from the centre, like the Royal Mile, etc. The breakfast was good, the room was comfortable and the guest house manager very attentive.

Had a great time. Very welcoming staff, nice rooms. Breakfast was good too, even though they don't seem to like cheese :) Close enough to the city centre but also close to Holyrood Park. Really enjoyed our time here.

Three of us spent one night here, in two rooms whilst visiting our student son at Edinburgh university. We received a very warm welcome and enjoyed a good nights' sleep in spotlessly clean and nicely decorated rooms. In fact, the guest house is nicely decorated throughout. Breakfast was limited to continental but there was an extensive choice available along with...

Our 2nd visit to the Classic. Allocated the same room again, on the 2nd floor - which has a narrow staircase to access, so state on booking if you have a problem with mobility. We were delayed in arrival but the owners were great when I contacted them to advise, organising a key pick up to get in. Clean, tidy...

Very kind of them to be sure. Great food, clean room and accommodations gave us a heart felt welcome from the beginning. location provides easy access to...
