Straven Guesthouse

Bed and Breakfast Edinburgh

Straven Guesthouse provides high quality Bed and Breakfast in Edinburgh. You will find comfortable rooms and a hearty breakfast menu. Straven is a small B and B run by us, Chris and Sinead, in our traditional Victorian home. There are no staff so a personal service is always guaranteed. Located 50 yards from the beautiful sandy beach, we are in the leafy suburb of Joppa, Portobello. It is so peaceful it is difficult to believe you are only a 20 minute bus journey to the centre of Scotland's capital.   Explore the rich heritage of Edinburgh by day and relax in the evening with a walk along the beachfront promenade after a meal in one of the local restaurants.


We are an easy bus ride in to the city centre of Edinburgh where there are endless entertainments, from live music, comedy, theatre and dance. A fantastic range of restaurants with cuisines from around the world and more bars than you could wish for from traditional Scottish pubs to elegant wine and cocktail bars.

The rich history in Edinburgh is evident in the large monuments as soon as you arrive in the city centre such as the Scots monument and the Castle.  Can you afford to miss the Museum of Scotland, the National Galleries, the Camera Obscura, Arthur’s Seat , the Royal Yacht Britannia, the Parliament building, the ghost tours in the Old town, The Royal Botanic Gardens……………..
