Parking in Edinburgh

Queens Guest House is located in the very heart of Edinburgh city centre and as such, does not have its parking facilities.  When you come to stay at Queens Guest House by car, you need to know the best places for parking in Edinburgh, and we would recommend parking at either the “Q-Park” or the “Castle Terrace” car parks, both of which are located 10 minutes away, on foot, from our property.


There are designated parking bays on George Street and some other neighbouring streets.

Please, always check the nearest ticket machine to ensure you pay the correct price as there may be variations in rate and maximum stay times in each area.

Parking zones are indicated on the street by large zone entry signs that denote the number and times that parking is restricted.

Streets Price from 1 April 2018    Hours of  Operation
Queen St, St Andrew Sq, Charlotte sq, George St, Market St & Cockburn St £4.20 per hour  Monday to  Saturday               8.30am to 6.30pm

There are no charges payable on Sundays, Christmas Day, Boxing Day, New Year’s Day and Easter Monday.

OUR QUEENS GUEST HOUSE IS TEMPORARILY CLOSED!Due to the pandemic emergency that is affecting the tourist industry, we have sadly decided to make the Queens Guest House inoperative until further notice.

Dear Valued Guest,

After the announcement by the British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and subsequent conference from the First Minister of Scotland, Nicola Sturgeon, we are writing to you letting you know the immediate impact of these announcements.

As you are aware the last six months since the Covid-19 pandemic struck the hospitality and tourism sector has been disproportionately affected. We were hoping that by now we would be seeing restrictions easing and the recovery of the tourism sector. However, this has not been the case; visitor numbers to the city have collapsed. And with further tightening of restrictions, possibly running on for another six months, well into next year, there is no end in sight.

Therefore we have made the difficult but only viable decision, to shut down for the Autumn and Winter period. With the number of infections rising exponentially and little or no sign of recovery in terms of tourist and guest numbers, then there is no way we can remain open and financially viable.

If you have a booking with us, or a voucher to redeem then please contact us in the spring, we are hoping that we can reopen again, on April 1st 2021.

We can imagine that this may be a difficult time for our guests, and this news will not be easy to digest, but currently, there is no viable business or means to remain open. We are hoping things will have significantly improved by April 2021. It also means we and our potential guests have clarity for the winter season and into next year.

Kind regards,


 CVH hotels.
