Rowan Guest House
Edinburgh Bed and Breakfast
Rowan Guest House is situated in a leafy conservation area a little over a mile from the city centre. It is located just off the main A.701 road from the south, with easy access to the town centre, yet its quiet location, tucked away from traffic noise, gives a peaceful night's sleep. Look no further if you need a quiet guest house in Edinburgh. If you are arriving by car, we have free unrestricted parking outside the house, so you can leave your car here and use the excellent bus service just a short walk away.
The house was built in 1880 for a Victorian merchant and still retains many original features. We have a variety of accommodation to suit all price budgets and are also one of the few guest houses in the city to have three single rooms. All rooms have television, tea/coffee facilities, radio clock alarm and hairdryer. We can also supply an iron and ironing board, ice for your drinks, arrange a taxi for your journey and give advice on how to get the most from your visit. For those of you with laptops, there is free wi-fi internet
access available in all rooms.
We serve a large Scottish breakfast each morning including porridge and freshly baked scones. If you are vegetarian or have special dietary requirements, mention this on arrival and we will happily cater to your needs. Breakfast is normally served between 8.0 a.m. and 9.0 a.m., or a little earlier if you wish, however, for those of you needing a particularly early start, a continental breakfast may be arranged.
Rowan House is well located for all tourist attractions including the Castle, Holyrood Palace, and the Royal Mile. All University of Edinburgh departments are within walking distance, as are The Royal College of Surgeons, The Queen's Hall and the Festival Theatre.
Eating out in Edinburgh these days is a complete treat. Outside of London, there are more restaurants, per head of the population, than anywhere else in the U.K. Locally there are Scottish/European, Indian, Chinese, Thai, Italian and Turkish establishments. .
Whether you are here on holiday or business, let us extend a warm welcome to Edinburgh and Rowan Guest House. We look forward to hearing from you.
