About the hotel
CRIOCH means 'The end of a long journey' and where better to relax than here with Dora and James at Crioch Guest House - awarded 3 star Guest House by VisitScotland. Rated on TripAdvisor. The house dates from 1874 with original ornate plaster cornicing and warmly decorated throughout.
There is unrestricted FREE PARKING on the street and you can catch the bus to the centre (less than 2 miles / 3km) from right outside the house - bus 25 or 12. Facilities: 5 rooms with en-suite shower and toilet, 1 room with private bathroom and shower. Accommodation in single, double, twin and family rooms for 3 or 4 people. All rooms have television, welcome tray with tea/coffee/drinking chocolate and biscuits, hairdryer and central heating. Iron and ironing board available. Crioch overlooks the park of Leith Links, where the original Leith rules of golf originated. There are many excellent restaurants and bars nearby, and the Royal Yacht Britannia is only 1. 5 miles (2. 5km) away. Crioch is an ideal base to enjoy the magic of Edinburgh, the beautiful historic capital city of Scotland with many great places to visit. On a fine day, try a city tour on an opened-topped bus - you can get on and off as many times as you like. Linger in Princes Street Gardens, soak up the festival vibe on the Mound, or go shopping in George Street. Edinburgh Castle sits impressively looking over Princes Street, with fantastic panoramic views across the River Forth to Fife. Take a walk down the cobbled street of the Royal Mile, explore the narrow closes (alleys) and old buildings like Gladstone's Land (1620), St. Giles Cathedral (1400s) and John Knox's House (1490) until you reach the Palace of Holyrood House where the Queen stays when she visits Edinburgh. Don't miss a walk up to Salisbury Crags in Holyrood Park, where your reward is a great view over the city. Don't forget the excellent National Museum on Chambers Street, as well as many other galleries, museums, monuments and parks.

Ticks all the boxes!
After looking around for ages trying to find a good value place to stay for a couple of nights we found The Crioch.
It already had good reviews and lived up to these. We parked the car outside and left it there until leaving. The bus stop is on the door step and a reliable service took us everywhere we needed. James was an excellent host and made us more than welcome. A spotless guest house with en suite and lovely breakfast. No need to keep looking - this ticks all the right boxes!

Owners were nice.
Room was nice and quiet and bed comfortable. Was a bit disappointed that the price did not include breakfast as I thought it did when I booked. It was not made clear on website. Really strange tap in ensuite. Only one tap which went from cold water to hot water on turning. Bottled drinking water, in the room, might be a nice touch.
