A very friendly and welcoming guest house, with excellent facilities. Breakfast was outstanding - far exceeding our expectations and better by far than any hotels we have stayed in.
It was cozy and homely with excellent quality through. Real flowers, complimentary whisky, my favourite Clipper tea and coffee and Scottish Fine Soaps products in the bedroom. I loved it and will certainly be back.
Breakfast Location Hospitality
The owner, a perfect host. The breakfast was a delightful experience. The location was perfect for our needs and the bed was very comfortable
Atmosphere of calmness and quality, decor, beautiful room, superb choice at buffet and cooked breakfast including for veggies, even with bucks fizz!
We enjoyed our stay very much in this cosy guest house. Breakfast was excellent and served by a very friendly host. Thank you, Franco & Lynne
Great location for visiting the University's Pollock Halls Good location for the city - pleasant 25 minute walk via The Meadows park. On bus route into the city and Waverley Station The breakfast - plenty of choice Warm welcome and attention to detail from Marco and Lynne Charming Victorian house with lots of character.
Nothing to dislike
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.
no negative comment
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.

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
