    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.

    The owners were incredibly friendly and helpful. Our room was clean, comfortable and beautiful, and the breakfast was fantastic. We had a truly wonderful experience at Southside!

    Not one thing.

    Breakfast was excellent. Buffet plus almost anything you wanted cooked fresh. Our host could not have been more pleasant. The free whiskey decanter was a nice touch.

    Very pleasant friendly guest house - easy to see why this is highly rated

    There were downsides - noisy plumbing, noisy road nearby - some basic maintenance problems with the room but somehow the welcome from the host and the overall atmosphere of the place made up for this,

    Lovely place, having the opportunity to have a book or a dvd as "service" it's pleasent. Perfectly working free wi fi. Details can make the difference in so many ways! Pubd and restaurant very close, so if you don't want to walk to the city center (10 minutes far walking) your evening is made! Perfect support by the staff! (For the italians having problem with english language could be intersting to know that Mr. Franco speaks italian!)

    Maybe a little noisy, no problem for me anyway. To find a "problem" the pillows are too soft, but indeed I don't even adk for another one, so if you would to consider it a problem, it could be one of those the staff could fix!

    This is the second time that I have stayed there. The staff is excellent, the food is great and the room is very nice.

    Shower temperature fluctuates. But this is such a minimal issue with all of the great things this location has to offer. I will continue to stay here every year.

    The breakfast was amazing. In a good location. Excellent valve for money

    Front room noisy. Traffic and also the water tank seemed to be fairly close by. The shower would run hot then cold and the room was quite stuffy when it got warm

    Franco and Lynne contacted us the day before our two night booking at their B&B, they had unfortunately had a plumbing incident and couldnt offer us the room, they gave us the option of a full refund or we could use their Southside apartment which we took and it turned out to be perfect for me and my partner! Very good communication and throughly happy with our stay.

    The hosts Franco/Lynne were in my opinion made for the job, nothing was too much trouble. Room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was out of this world, first class. Excellent central position of accommodation.

    The breakfast was excellent. Host's recommendations for attractions & restaurants were very helpful. Buses run often past house and host gave good directions for use. There's a good bar across the street with live music at night. Not too loud though.

    It was further from the train station than we thought and we didn't know the bus ran right past the house. We walked!

    Southside Guesthouse and the owners are super gracious, hospitable, talented cooks with excellent fresh breakfasts, and so helpful with travel arrangements. The location is close. In rain, we could take a bus from right outside to downtown or otherwise walk everywhere to Old & New Town. I highly recommend them!
