Straven Guesthouse provides comfortable rooms with hearty breakfasts for accommodation in Edinburgh. Guests can explore the rich heritage of Edinburgh by day and relax with an evening stroll on the promenade. There is an excellent bus service which can transport guests into the city centre in 20 minutes. We can happily accommodate cyclists who will enjoy the cycle routes and the bike friendly promenade in Portobello. The guesthouse is run by Chris and Sinead in their Victorian home without staff so a personal service is guaranteed.
