Maureen
Clean, comfortable and cosy rooms within a semi-detached Victorian Villa, situated in the Edinburgh city centre area of Newington. Located on major bus route, with busses every 5 mins (approx) heading to the beating heart of the city.
Born and bred in Edinburgh, I have run the guest house in my family home for over 20 years. I love to welcome guests to my home and city!
Warm and welcoming community based with local amenities close at hand. Directly opposite the house is a large shopping centre which has various eateries (Greggs cafe, Sainsbury’s Cafe, Costa Coffee, McDonalds) aswell as supermarkets and a pharmacy.
