Situated in the north of the historic and cosmopolitan capital city of Edinburgh, Parkside Guest House is the perfect place to stay whether you are visiting for leisure or business.
The house is a 100+ years old two-storey Victorian detached house located in a peaceful residential area which has been recently refurbished.
Whilst we aim to meet the needs of all our guests, there are some period features of the house which may make access to the first floor difficult for people with limited mobility.
The area provides easy access to attractions including Edinburgh’s zoo, playhouse, gardens, leisure centre and galleries.
Accessible transport are available locally and a 30 minute walk or a five minute car / taxi ride away from the house are the main shops and attractions of Ocean Terminal and the Botanical Gardens.
The guest house is situated on a wide street with no incline.
The pavements on either side of the road are tarmac and have a lowered kerb.
There is a pedestrian bay in the middle of the road to aid with crossing to and from the house and the bus stop.
