Positive Reviews


Walking distance for the fit, or take bus.

If you consider yourself relatively fit, then the 20-30 minute walk from The Mayville Guest House to the old town, museums and other attractions will suit you just fine, otherwise, just take the short bus trip downtown, or check out the restaurants in the


Lovely family welcome.

The guest house is run by a lovely family, who provide friendly service, free continental fare such as cereal and toast in the morning, or a hefty full English breakfast for the truly hungry.


Good budget value for Edinburgh.

Considering the money spent on a stay at The Mayville Guest House, guests were happy to find tidy, comfortable rooms and a warm welcome, both from the heating and the staff.

Negative Reviews


Feels a bit on the old side to some.

With reports from a few guests of old carpet, a little bit of mould and an uncomfortable bathroom layout for some, and a general need for updating, those who are very fussy about such things should look for another option.


Parking free, but first find it.

The guest house will provide you with a free permit for parking, but if you are unlucky, you may have to spend a little time hunting for an empty space.
