Parkside Guest House


Parkside Guest House is located just a 30 minute walk or a five minute car ride from many of Edinburgh’s attractions.
Our two fully accessible ground floor rooms have electric profiling beds, wheelchair accessible dressing tables and en-suite wet rooms.
On the first floor there are three bedrooms; one en-suite family room and two rooms which share a bathroom. These rooms are available to people with no mobility issues and family, friends and carers.
There is level access throughout the ground floor to the dining room and a cosy guest lounge. The accessible rear garden provides a sheltered space for relaxing.

Meals are served in the dining room with a tray service available on request. We offer an excellent Scottish breakfast and a range of home cooked main meal options are available with prior booking. We can cater for all types of dietary requirements.

Leonard Cheshire Disability has over 65 years of experience in providing customised support for disabled people. All of our team members are highly trained and many are qualified to SVQ Level 2 and 3 Care and Support. There is an onsite night concierge service and a staff call pager system that is compatible with all Sensalert assistive technology products.

Parkside is a great place to stay. All the team is friendly and the food is good too. The accommodation is like a home from home. It’s handy for Princess Street as well, which is great! I shall be staying there again shortly – Clare.
