Negative Reviews


Location not ideal for central Edinburgh

Whilst it is in close proximity to attractions such as Gilmerton Cove and Craigmillar Castle, the Emerald Guest House is not ideal for visiting Edinburgh city centre - a sentiment shared by various former visitors. For example, it is estimated to take at least 15 minutes to reach the city centre by car.


Limited parking spaces available

Based on the feedback of previous guests, the guest house has proved inadequate on occasion when it came to parking. Although a driveway is provided for parking, the amount of spaces available is said to be limited.


External noise can be disruptive

With its position next to a main street, noise from passing traffic can apparently be troublesome for guests staying at the Emerald Guest House. This was especially the case for a number of past visitors that were in rooms facing the road.
