Located a short bus ride from center city, in a lovely area with a wonderful walkway along the waterfront. Each night we strolled along enjoying the sunset on our way to a charming offbeat dinner. Breakfast at the guest house was substantial and tasty, the room was spacious, the hosts were friendly. Only regret is that we did not plan a longer stay.

Was a great stay at the Straven guest house, the owners were very hospitable and friendly. Breakfast was outstanding and we were lucky to get nice weather while in Edinburgh. The street is quiet and right near the beautiful beach for morning strolls. I don't have any real complaints about our stay, it felt a little stuffy in the room but we neglected to open the window as it appears a lot of Europe does not have AC's readily available like we are used to, but that is not their fault in the slightest.

If you want to be around the hustle of Edinburgh, this would not be the place for you, but if you like quiet and more laid back, this is a great place to stay.

Room tip: Quiet rooms, great breakfast, hospitable hosts

Our second visit to the Straven guest house. The welcome on arrival and personal service are just a couple of the reasons we came back. The owners made us so welcome. Their breakfasts are the best we have had anywhere. We were visiting friends in Portabello and they too were made very welcome. We would recommend the Straven to anyone who visits Edinburgh but want somewhere less hectic to chill out after a long day!

Room tip: One large bedroom with sea view. All others are very spacious too

A great place to stay ,owned by a friendly young couple who are very knowledgeable about their surroundings able to advise on things to see or go. Able to advise re bus trains. The hotel is very clean comfortable beds.
What a breakfast so much choice, cooked to perfection. Must try the Scottish porridge great choice of "breakfast starters"
Will not look for any other place to stay when visiting Edinburgh , short bus ride into town, not worth paying Edinburgh hotel prices
Excellent location close to sea front . Good for walking or running along sea front

Chris and Sinead really make you feel home, the location by the sea is awesome and breakfast is amazing. The rooms are really clean and cozy. To get there you just take a bus at the city centre and go to Portobello, the house is just 2 minutes away from the stop.
