Welcome to Kirklea Guest House

The entrance to Kirklea Guest House, Edinburgh

Kirklea Guest House is a 100-year old Victorian terraced villa just one mile from the famous city centre of Edinburgh.

We have five bedrooms: two singles (one with private bathroom), two doubles (one ensuite), and one twin room (ensuite). All of these have comfortable beds, tea and coffee-making facilities, flat-screen TV with DVD and wash-basin.

Naturally, all rooms are centrally-heated with an adjustable thermostat. Each room also contains an information pack about Edinburgh so you can decide what to do at your leisure.

Local amenities

You can find out more about our town on our Edinburgh page, but our local area has a lot to offer too whether you want a good meal, Scottish beer or whisky, a nice relaxing walk, or to see the latest film:

There is a gastro pub just around the corner (one minute walk) which serves good food and a selection of fine whiskies, also beers from the last independent brewery in Edinburgh, the Caledonian. Within a 10 minute walk you can eat at various ethnic restaurants, Italian, Chinese, Indian, Japanese as well as Scottish of course. An excellent example of this is First Coast, a well established quality restaurant not 10 minute's walk from Kirklea.

Harrison Park is just around the corner - offering a walk along the canal with plenty wild life and often canoes from the local rowing clubs. Fountain Park is a leisure centre 5 minutes walk away which has 10 cinema screens, bowling, a casino, several restaurants and an activity centre for children.
