Nice B&B just north of the bridge, rooms well equipped and comfortable, breakfast was lovely, and Isobel a mine of information about the area. Great location for visiting Edinburgh park the car at the B&B and walk 5 minutes to the train station for the short ride into the city, good option as Edinburgh is a nightmare to park and... More

Isobel and Patrick are the perfect hosts in a delightful B&B. We received the warmest of welcomes and a lovely welcome cake stand full of delicious things to eat, including lots of fresh fruit. Isobel gave me needle,thread and scissors to do a quick alteration on a dress! She had previously given me directions on the phone so that I... More

Very pleasant B&B in a very good quiet location despite being so close to main roads etc. The room was super, very clean and comfortable with a really good breakfast. Isobel & Victor were excellent hosts.

This was our second stay at The Roods. Lovely twin room with a spotlessly clean and well equipped bathroom with piles of soft towels. Isobel and Patrick are the perfect hosts. Their recommendation of a restaurant called Louie Browns at Dalgety Bay proved to be a great place for dinner. It was no trouble for our hosts to book a... More

The B & B was a quick 20-minute train ride to the heart of Edinburgh & just a short walk up the hill from the train station. The room was beautiful and comfortable. The proprietors were friendly & we loved talking to them about our travels, our home, & American football. Our first morning at the B & B we... More

This place is a little gem. Needed somewhere to stay for the Ryder Cup, the location was good in that respect. Had read a lot of the reviews on Tripadvisor - don't think I have seen anywhere else with such glowing reviews, they are however well deserved. Isobel and Patrick work hard to make you feel welcome. The room was... More

The Roods is a little hidden treasure of a B&B located very close to the main train line into Edinburgh, but far enough away to have a very quiet and relaxing stay if required. The breakfast was delicious and of a very high quality with a great choice to suit all palates. The fresh fruit salad was the best Ive... More

Isobel and Patrick at The Roods B&B wrote the book on how to run the ideal Bed and Breakfast establishment. From the minute you enter the front door, you sense the warm, friendly, and inviting atmosphere. From the beautiful room décor & comfortable bed to the modern en-suite bathroom & lovely landscaped garden, the attention to detail is exceptional. The... More

'A really nice place with a warm welcome. Isobel is a lovely bubbly person. The facilities and breakfast were superb. Two comments - the bed we had was a standard double - a little small for us and there are steps either from the street or round the back and a very steep drive at the back of the house.... More

Wow! So glad we found this fantastic b&b, definitely lived up to the great reviews. Isobel and Patrick are great hosts, really make you feel welcome. A good location, found it easily by car thanks to Isobels directions and there's a train station close by too. We stayed for 3 nights in a beautiful twin ensuite room, clean and comfortable... More
