Owners are very friendly and helpful. Room was very clean with good facilities (kettle/espresso machine). Washing facilities very clean with fresh towels daily if requested. Bed very comfy and clean. Breakfast was very nice. Also selection of fresh fruits, cerial and mixed nuts aswell as full cooked breakfast.
The room we had was on the road side and could get a little noisey at night. Whenever the room above us flushed the toilet it made a very loud noise also. These are quite minor negatives.
Beautiful house. Breakfast was a pleasure, good food, good service, good ambience.
Good location both for business and Leisure. Clean and tidy. Pleasant Hosts.

The building was beautiful, the location extremely convenient, the room had loads of character (and was quiet) and above all the owners and staff were friendly, helpful and interesting. And then there were the wonderful breakfasts!
Shower temperature varied rapidly!
Room was superb with very comfortable bed. Breakfast was outstanding
Shower could work better
We liked Everything about this place. The hospitality, the house, the choice and quality of the breakfast was superb, loved the little personal touches. Lots of attention to detail, it was a joy to stay there and our hosts, who were very charming and welcoming, really knew how to run a guest house. We had room 2 which was at the rear which was nice and quiet so we enjoyed a good nights sleep in a comfy bed. We would definitely stay here again and would strongly recommend.
There was nothing to dislike.
Had a super stay at Southside - Franco and Lynne could not have done more and the buffet breakfast combined with a la carte offerings were delicious. Can't wait to return.
The fried breakfasts were small.
ROOMS, BREAKFAST, HOSPITALITY
The Gentleman who owns it is charming and the breakfast was incredible!
Our room faced the garden and was large, quiet and comfortable. The 2-Course breakfasts were excellent - freshly prepared hot breakfast with a daily special, and a cold breakfast buffet with all types of cereals, milk, yogurt, fresh fruit, a variety of fresh pastries. Franco and Lynn are perfect hosts - very accommodating and they made certain all our needs were met. The house is easily walkable to a variety of very good restaurants, Holyrood Park, Parliament, Holyroodhouse, the Royal Mile and Edinburgh Castle, many museums, the Univ. of Edinburgh, and all kinds of shopping. The bathroom will barely accommodate two people, and the shower tiny but really excellent - the best I've ever had in a hotel. The room has adequate drawer space and a large closet. This is probably the best B&B I've stayed in. We were on the second floor and did not year movement either above or below us, which surprised me because the house is 150 years old and the floors creak!
I cannot think of anything we did not like - perhaps having to walk several blocks to our free parking space.
Close enough to walk to most attractions without being in the heart of the Royal Mile. Lovely small touches - great toiletries, cookies each night, big plush bath towels, and a complimentary nightcap of wonderful Scotch whiskey. Breakfast was plentiful and delicious.
Generous attention to detail, stylish and comfortable room. Very helpful host. Great pillows and breakfast! Two days not enough.
Everything was amazing but the highlight is Franco's (owner) hospitality. Breakfast was outstanding. For me this guesthouse is beyond any 5 star hotel.
Beautiful house complete with all the facilities you could hope for. Very comfortable duck down bedding with a clean and fresh feel. First class breakfast included. Most of all you are made to feel very welcome and the owner's clear pride in his business and the contentment of staying guests has been the most pleasant aspect of all. Highly recommended.
Charming host, splendid breakfasts, stylish property, location, and particular care taken towards guest comfort.
Wifi under renewal and variable.
Unique atmosphere and decoration, great breakfast, friendly hosting by the owners themselves.
my 2 daughters and I had a marvellous stay at Southside Guest House as Franco and Lynn made us feel at home Their house is elegant and at the same time cozy Breakfast was generous and delicious
We stayed at the Southside guest house over the Edinburgh Fringe and really enjoyed our stay. The location is great with a good bus service into the city, we didn't use this however as it was only a twenty minute walk to the Royal Mile and only ten minutes to some of the Fringe shows we were there to see. The walk was also a nice one, taking in some of the lovely streets in South Edinburgh or through the Meadows. The hotel and facilities were lovely. My partner and I booked a Petite room, which was petite (as it says on the tin) but had everything we needed as well as being clean and well decorated. We did have some maintenance issues while we were staying, but the manager was more than accommodating about providing us with the facilities we needed at a moments notice and swapped our room when the issue couldn't be immediately resolved - so our petite room became a suite for the night! Which really is a beautiful room at the front of the property. Shame this one wasn't available when we first booked - perhaps I should book even earlier for the Fringe next year! The food was consistently wonderful and thoughtfully available at a later hour than their usual service, since we were all keeping festival time. I'd recommend to anyone wanting to visit Edinburgh, a lovely small guest house, with the family-run feel and home comforts. Including a "wee dram" provided for all who wanted to partake!
Wonderful breakfas,little extras make all the difference ,a lot of thought put in,a wonderful place to stay.
Southside is a really nice place, well-maintained and nicely furnished, and Franco is a very nice host - friendly and informative. The location is very convenient for the buses and it is very easy to get around Edinburgh from there. Breakfast is very good, as previous reviewers have said. The property also has a few decent eateries around it, and the pub/restaurant across the road has live music (which you won't hear from your room, it won't disturb your sleep). The coffee machine in the room and the kettle, with an ample supply of tea, sugar and creamer was nice. A really good stay.
The shower was a bit weird - hot water one minute, then a sudden rush of cold water, going back to very hot.
The owners' care and welcoming attitude, their attention to detail, the overall atmosphere, furnishing, selection and presentation of breakfast, little extras not found elsewhere. Absolutely satisfying.
Franco was excellent, he was friendly throughout, yet not invasive. He was extremely helpful and went the extra mile to be helpful. The breakfast was a credit to him and his wife for quality tasting produce cooked wonderfully. A varied choice as well which is a lovely touch.
our electric shower was the only thing I could fault as it could not maintain a constant temperature,however the bath facilities and bath products left for our use were lovely.
Breakfast is amazing! Love the house and the location is convenient. Lots of restaurants nearby.
