A good, convenient spot within walking distance of the city centre and with ample on-street parking. A large, clean and comfortable room in a quiet location so we got a really good sleep! Some attention to detail was lacking, e.g. A torn curtain and stained carpet. A very small bathroom in our room. No real cause for complaint and the... More

We stayed here for four nights. The hotel is really well-located for the centre of town (walking distance about 15mins, but there are a number of direct buses). Our host was very welcoming, and the hotel had the right balance of being personal, but not so much that you feel like you're staying in someone else's home. The rooms and... More

I'm a frequent visitor to my home town of Edinburgh, but usually in company with Bev, but as this was a 'Rugby weekend', I went with my friend Andy. We booked about five months ago, as I know that on special weekends in Edinburgh, B and B and Hotel prices tend to rise. We were not disappointed. A lovely welcome... More

I stayed here with my sister for four nights, and we booked a double room (since we didn't mind sharing). We were up in Edinburgh to watch the rugby, go to a gig, sightsee, shop and more. We packed a lot into the time we had so it was great to come back to this cosy comfortable B&B after the... More

We were making a surprise visit to our daughter and family and chose the Abbotsford because it was very close to where she lived. Although there was just the two of us, we were given a huge family room with a really comfortable bed. The room was on the front of the house so there was some noise from the... More
