    It was such a great stay, we had the best time in Edi! It was clean, coffee and tea waiting for us after long flight, beds very comfy, we even got map with things that were worth seeing (and cookies which were delicious! :)). Small things like that make the biggest difference and I would truly recommend the stay to everyone. Also, the view from our bedroom was amazing.

    We were so impressed with our stay at Capital Guest House & thoroughly enjoyed our 2 nights there. Our host couldn't have been nicer - Ali was lovely, friendly & kind & made us feel very welcome offering to help with our bags & everything. The room was spacious, spotless, cosy & comfortable. Facilities were great with tea, coffee & biscuits replenished daily. The shower stall was a little small but nothing we couldn't handle & the water was nice & hot with lovely fresh smelling towels & plenty of them. We all slept beautifully as the beds were so comfy. We are definitely planning a return trip to Capital Guest House when we next visit my daughter in Edinburgh. Just to add, the location is ideal & is just a short drive from the centre of Edinburgh.

    Nothing- everything was wonderful
