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

Visited the area for a motor sport event with my son, and our stay here was perfect, ideal location, great hosts and more than we could have wished for. Would definitely stay again for our next visit.

Just stayed over for 1 night this last weekend, what a smashing find! Isobel couldn't have made me more welcome, easy to find & right next to the local train station, super clean & comfortable room with a faultless breakfast too! Loved the little 'treats' left with my tea & coffee tray, will stay again next time we visit the... More

We read the reviews and expected it to be excellent. It was. Isobel and Patrick couldn't have done more for us and we are grateful to them. We wouldn't hesitate to stay again. Very handy for the Inverkeithing railway station and for joining a cruise at Rosyth.

Enter a stranger and leave a friend. Well that's how we felt after three nights at the Roods. Great room, bed, ensuite, fabulous breakfasts and wonderful conversations with our hosts. If you don't stay here while in Scotland then, your loss, because we can't see anyone topping this B&B. Also the railway station is right across the road making it... More
