Positive Reviews


Decent walk, or just take the bus.

Guests found the 20-25 minute walk from Clarin Guest House to the city centre to be manageable, or if it proved too far, a short bus ride also did the job. The dining options in the neighbourhood were also handy for those not wanting to head all the way d


Character interior spacious.

The characterful interiors of the rooms were appreciated by guests, who found them to be clean, comfortable and spacious.


Kind and welcoming hosts.

You will find your hosts to be the highlight of your stay — they create a very welcoming atmosphere and are particularly helpful, with all the information you may need for Edinburgh.

Negative Reviews


No breakfast available….

At the time of writing in 2015, Clarin Guest House was not offering breakfasts to guests, but be sure to check while booking as they have previously provided morning meals.


Shared bathrooms for rooms.

Sharing bathroom facilities is obviously not for everyone, so if you require private facilities make sure you specify this in your booking.


A little far to walk and stairs.

Some thought the guest house was a bit too far from the city centre to walk and a few warned that there are some stairs to walk up, so be careful of you have excessive luggage or mobility problems.
