We stayed a whopping 10 nights at this most delightful B&B (or is it a Guesthouse?)No matter, it couldn't have been better. This is to add what everyone else has already written. Yes Doreen is very helpful and a fabulous cook but she's also so much fun. We had many laughs. Yes, the place is great but it also has the best, most powerful shower I've ever experienced. There are also hair dryers and irons and boards in the rooms. The location can not be improved upon. Besides proximity to all the sights you're footsteps away from movie theatres, stage theatres, restaurants, cafes, a supermarket and a fantastic pub. Do yourself a favor and stay at least a week at the Star Villa. I can't wait to return.

Stayed with you in December 11 and I must say after this return visit I would find it hard to stay anywhere else. Once again lovely host, great breakfast and thank you once again for the 3 tours you organised for us. See you next time we are in Edinburgh. Michael

This was actually my first stay at a B&B and it was great! Doreen is a very kind and helpful person and she really cares about her guests.
The room we stayed at was clean and quiet. The whole B&B is in a very good condition and it is also very close to the city center.
The breakfast was freshly made each morning and it was delicous.
It was a very pleasant stay and I hope to get the chance to go there again soon :)

This was my second stay in the Star Villa guest house and it was great. Doreen is a very kind and helpful person and her B&B is a great place to stay at. Bedroom and bathroom both were clean and tidy and so were the other parts of the B&B. I can highly recommend the Scottish breakfast which is delicous and was freshly made each morning. I have been to a few B&bs in Scotland (and England) during the last summer, but the Star Villa was definitely the best one! That was the reason why I decided to go there again when I came to Edinburgh last week. I had a great time and I can't wait until I can go there again :) Kind regards from Germany, Ragna

We stayed here for one night in a lovely top room with view of the castle.
The room was very clean and nicely decorated and Anthony was particularly impressed with the wet room. The bed was so comfortable and the towels lovely and fluffy.
We had a lovely stay and will hopefully come again.

I visited Edinburgh recently for a wedding, and booked last minute at Star Villa. How lucky I was to find it!
The location was fantastic - really close to everywhere I wanted to be. The room was lovely, the breakfasts were some of the best I've ever eaten, and Doreen (the proprietor) is so friendly and nice!
I definitely plan to stay there again.

We had a wonderful stay in Edinburgh at the Star Villa.
Doreen is a welcoming host and was really helpful with directions and tips on where to go etc.
The room was very comfortable and the hospitality was excellent, we were made to feel right at home.
The b&b is in a great central location and we found it easy to walking distance to most places.
Would definitely recommend to others.
Thanks Doreen for a lovely stay.

I stayed here for four nights, and had a wonderful time. The B&B is beautifully kept - clean, quiet and comfortable - and is in a great location from which to explore the city. My en suite shower was excellent, and the room had a nice view to the castle, as promised.
Doreen is a wonderful and welcoming host, and cooks a fantastic breakfast that will set you up nicely for the day.
I would have no hesitation in recommending the Star Villa to anyone going to Edinburgh.
