Obviously their interpretation of luxury suite is far far away from the real meaning. We booked the luxury suite which was a large room for sure but the room had the original poorly maintained wood sash windows (notorious for their draughts) which were difficult to close for a novice. There was an OLD CRT televison in the room, now that... More

My girlfriend and I stayed for one night for a night out at the stand comedy club. We had a very friendly welcome when we arrived and throughout our stay. The rooms are very clean and spacious. The place is a short distance to town, easily within walking distance with a lovely walk through the Meadows. Would recommend staying here.

Stayed here for three nights whilst visiting family. Enjoyed my stay here. Nice continental breakfast which you choose the night before and it is delivered to your door with a cheery 'Good Morning'. Very comfortable room. Excellent value for money.

3 nights there with a couple of friends for this very nice B&B, very quiet, easy connexion to the city center, perfect wifi. We felt sometimes like in "Harry Potter" very quiet house. The 2 rooms we have seen with simpathetic views on typical backside garden

Thank you so much for your kind review, we are delighted you enjoyed your stay. We can see what you mean when you say it gives you a happy potter vibe, it is a lovely example of a Victorian terrace house with architecture just like in Harry Potter. The reason for this is that J.K Rowling, author of Harry Potter... More

She claimed that she had tried to contact us by phone,... More

We stayed here for a total of 6 nights with a 2 night break in the middle while we went on a tour. We found this place lovely and very homely. This is not a hotel it is a family home so anyone looking for glitz and glamour look in the city. It is located in a quiet street and... More

15 Merchiston Gardens is a bit of a conundrum, to be honest. For a bit of context, we travelled as a couple for a long weekend at the Fringe during mid-August, staying for a total of four nights. After struggling to find available rooms in the city, we stumbled upon this place via an agent website. At £139 per night... More

My wife and I had a lovely 2 day stay at 15 Merchiston Gardens in Edinburgh. We were made very welcome and our accommodation was excellent. The renovated Victorian house has large comfortable rooms and the laid back atmosphere was very welcome. The residence is within a easy 25 minute stroll of central Edinburgh and there are several good restaurants... More
