Traditional Meets Modern Accommodation

The Alpha Guest House is a traditional Edinburgh B&B situated within 5 minutes drive of both Edinburgh city centre and the Edinburgh City Bypass. It is also only 5 minutes from the new Edinburgh Royal Infirmary (ERI) Hospital based at Little France. The guest house comprises 4 en-suite rooms (4 double/twin rooms), all of which are situated on the ground floor. All our guest rooms have been recently renovated and comfortably furnished and are all fully equipped with wall mounted TVs and tea / coffee making facilities. Your stay at the guest house will include a Continental or full Scottish Breakfast and other amenities include free car parking and Wi-Fi. There is no need to take the car to the city centre of Edinburgh as there is an excellent local bus service which stops outside our guest house. Nearby are a nice selection of pubs and restaurants serving reasonably priced meals, while Cameron Toll shopping centre is only a short walk. We look at our guest house as a home from home and offer our customers a relaxing and enjoyable experience, thanks to our very spacious rooms and friendly staff.

The owners were delightful people

"This is newly re-furbished accommodation and the rooms have been decorated to a high standard with modern bathrooms and comfortable beds. A good choice of food for breakfast. The owners were delightful people to be around and very helpful. We and our friends enjoyed our stay."
