'Hi, thank you. We were in general, very happy with our stay. What could be improved : - As here for a business, breakfast was proposed too late. It would have been better to be able to take breakfast between 7 and 8a.m. instead of 8 and 9. As we had to meet and prepare with other people for the day - The room was nice. As we said, we were missing place to hook our four shower towels. We used the soaps you gave us in the room. Thank you very much for those, very useful. It seemed someone took away the soaps we hadn\'t use entirely. And one day (out of our three days stay), a towel was missing. - Your garden is lovely. Nice to have it as a view for breakfast. Breakfast was good. Please propose a pot of tea for 2. Or say the quantity that will come for each items. Because for example, one teapot was enough for 2 people. It\'s a shame to waste. Thanks MC'

'Thank you very much for your kind words, and I trust you enjoyed Edinburgh at Festival time. Please, if your requirements are outside of the norm, please tell us. Buffet breakfast was ready and available from about 7.30 am, but weekends at holiday time this would be too early for most of our guests. I am sorry about the missing towel, again please tell us at the time. Tea and coffee are both served in pots, small (for 1) and large (for 2) with sufficient for each person to have more than one cup. I taker your point about waste.'

'I'd like to thank the landlady for her time and patience with us, our train was late and she stayed up not only to greet us but to direct us to the hotel. Wanted to get a bus but didn't know which direction to travel. F.i. it's towards the infirmary. On arrival we greeted taken to the breakfast room and then taken to our room & given our menus for choice for breakfast. These we completed and had a welcome cup of tea in our room. Had a shower and off to bed. Next morning breakfast was served in accordance with our wishes. Had a very brief not welcoming stay. Thanks for your help and patience. Only real complaint/observation was the shower on what should have been full was only a dribble. That aside everything was just so.'

'We stayed at Arden Guest House for one night when visiting family in Edinburgh. The staff were very hospitable and knowledgeable about the local amenities (bus routes, restaurants etc). The bedroom was clean and nicely decorated. Breakfast was lovely! I would stay here again and would recommend to anyone. Also, Edinburgh city was very close and accessible.'

Comfortable
4 stars 4

'This was a lovely guest house. Very friendly and helpful, exceptionally clean and well presented. Lovely breakfast freshley prepared to order and served in a pleasant conservatory. Bedrooms on the front do suffer from road noise if you have the window open and was very warm with the window shut on the weekend we stayed. Ideally located away from the city centre but on a very direct and frequent bus route. Would definately return and recommend to others who plan to be out in Edinburgh all day but need a comfortable place to stay. Thank you.'

Great place to stay in a wonderful City
5 stars 5

'The Arden Guest House is so convenient for the City of Edinburgh, but provides a haven of peace away from the hustle and bustle of City life. The accommodation was clean and pleasant with a contemporary twist. Breakfast was served in the lovely bright conservatory overlooking the garden. The breakfast choice was good and the food arrived beautifully presented. I cannot fault the service and attention to detail. Thank you for a lovely stay. I'll be back again.'

'This is my 3rd visit to Arden and I use it for busineSs as it is very close to and convieniant for the city for which you can walk or get a bus which stops outside. The room was clean tidy and to a high stanard. It was a cold night but the room was warm and heating came on at a good time and not the last moment. Breakfast was ample and filling, even though I did find the dinning room a litte cold but this did not take away the experinece of the B&B'
