Benefits of Choosing Our Guest House over a Hotel

When you’re coming to Edinburgh on business or for pleasure, there are many benefits of choosing our Guest House over a traditional hotel; you’ll find five of these benefits below;

1) Enjoy the best of both worlds

Our Guest House in Edinburgh is ideally located for those looking to enjoy all that the city centre has to offer but want a peaceful retreat to come back to at the end of a busy day.

Edinburgh has so much more to offer than the tourist attractions in the centre so when you stay at our B&B you’ll be able to enjoy the more relaxed neighbourhood atmosphere that Portobello provides.

2) A personal touch

We own and run every aspect of our Guest House so you are assured of an attentive and personal service that large city hotels just can’t offer.

Nothing is too much trouble for us and we’re always on hand to provide our local knowledge and make sure your stay is a pleasure from beginning to end.

3) Save money

When you book a city centre hotel in Edinburgh quite often you’re paying purely for the location. Our Bed and Breakfast is only a 15 minute bus ride from the city centre and also offers free Wi-Fi and free on-street parking right outside.


Choose the savvy option when staying in Edinburgh by choosing a high level of personal service and stylish accommodation that will cost you less than many city centre hotels.

4) Explore Edinburgh’s seaside

When you just want to take it easy on your business trip or holiday in Edinburgh, we are located just yards from Portobello Beach and Promenade.

You can enjoy a brisk seaside walk first thing in the morning to work up an appetite for a hearty breakfast or a late evening stroll before you head to a nice comfortable bed.

5) Peace of mind – we are eco-friendly

At Straven Guest House we take our environmental responsibilities very seriously. We have been awarded The Gold Standard by the Green Tourism Scheme and recycle all our waste wherever possible.

Every aspect of the B&B has been carefully considered to reduce the environmental impact and we use energy saving light bulbs, eco-friendly cleaning products and water conservation methods throughout.

Enjoy all these benefits and more by booking your next stay in Edinburgh with us now.
