I recently stayed at this B&B. The house and garden are beautiful! Isobel is fantastic! She and her husband went out of their way to assist my friend and I. We are from the US and needed help with getting to the airport. Isobel arranged for a discount taxi to take us to the airport very early in the morning.... More

Came here for the first time last year and wondered if I would be able to comment on improvements this time around but it proved to not be the case. However, that's not a bad thing as last year's stay was top notch and the same applied this time around. Rooms are comfortable and spacious, the hosts are friendly and... More

I only stayed at The Roods for one night, but I was completely satisfied and would happily have stayed longer. I chose this B&B based on its proximity to the Forth bridges, with the intention of doing some photographing. The location was great. Just a short drive to North Queensferry. One could easily walk it or take the train also.... More

Our hosts are a very nice couple that provide a well and warm atmosphere. The breakfast is marvelous. Our room was a cozy two bed room with a very clean bathroom and a comfortable shower. Big window to the quiet backyard.Towels are more than you can use with a top quality (smoth but thick material, not that outworn flannels). We... More

This is a homely type B&B where the friendly owners try their very best to cater for every need. The rooms are spacious with little extras like a welcoming plate of goodies including fresh fruit. Comfortable bed and a surprisingly large modern bathroom. Ideally Situated as you only need to cross the road to catch the train into Edinburgh. Lovely... More

Isobel and Patrick were very welcoming and nothing was a bother to them. The room was lovely, well equipped and comfortable with free WIFI. Breakfast was lovely too! We stayed there as we were visiting family in the area but it would be ideal if you were looking to visit Edinburgh but didn't want to be too close to the... More

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
