Good Hotel Guide Review

Escape the crowds at Paul Lightfoot and John MacEwan’s stylish Southside guest house, a short walk or bus ride from the centre. Sleek bedrooms in the restored Victorian town house have a mix of contemporary and traditional furniture, and modern Scottish artwork; one, which connects to a ‘wee dram’ (a smaller room with a bunk bed), is ideal for a family. Front-facing rooms have panoramic views of the Salisbury Crags and Arthur’s Seat, while those at the back look over the walled gardens towards the Pentland hills. On-screen action and adventure are a DVD away (ask to browse the film library). Come morning, Paul Lightfoot, a trained chef, serves organic breakfasts, including a daily special; breakfast boxes can be brought to the room. The gregarious hosts are eager to help with restaurant, theatre and concert bookings, car hire and guided tours. Lounge (honesty bar), drawing room, breakfast room. Walled garden. Free Wi-Fi, in-room TV (Freeview, Netflix). No background music. Children over 3 welcomed (books, DVDs, games, Xbox). Resident labradoodle, Molli. Pop-up dining event twice a month. 10 mins by bus from the city centre; bicycles are available to borrow. 6 bedrooms (1 interconnecting family room). Per room B&B £80–£200. 2-night min. stay preferred. Closed Christmas Day.
