              Warm and helpfull staff, excelent breakfast, nice room although a little cosy, but as expected in a family guest house. Everything was tidy and clean. The location is a 5 min bus ride from The Royal Mile and Princess Street.

              Excelent facilities and friendly helpful proprietors. Bus stop outside guesthouse very convenient for centre of city, only 1 mile from princes street.

              Firstly the hosts were a pleasure to deal with. They answered all my emails accurately and giving all information that i needed. They even took the trouble of finding out travel details from Inverness to Edinburgh for us. Thanks so much. Secondly the rooms were beautiful and well kept and a pleasure to come back to after the whole day of travelling. Thanks for the microwave it was a boon with the kids. Also the toffees in the room were excellent.

              We wished that it was closer to the Royal Mile or at least in the route of the city sight seeing bus. but luckily there was a bus stop 10 seconds from the hotel. Also there was no choice of hot breakfast, even eggs were not done to order. Baked beans or hash browns were out of question! The bathroom was so small that it was difficult to even turn around. No complaints about the amenities though.

              The staff was very nice. If we had any questions (or even help with parking) they were more than happy to help out. The breakfast was very good and the fruit was especially good.

              The rooms and bathrooms were very small.

              The Sherwood was a fantastic place to stay for our family. The room was spacious and very well appointed for the four of us. The room was very nicely finished and the bathroom was nice. The owners were very attentive and the breakfast was excellent with a lot to choose from. The breakfast room was very pleasant. The location of the guest house was perfect with a very short bus ride to the centre of the city.
