No one on premises .No indication it was a b& b from the other side. They let let me move part of my reservation to the weekend do to a change in my plans... More

Hello! Firstly, I am thankful to the owners for the service they provided me. I spend in the "Moet" room (the en-suite one) in the Guest House approximately 4 months and a half, from the 3rd of January till May the 15th. I decided to join 15 Merchiston Gardens' "family" just before Christmas in order to have a place where... More

We were Thrown out - so shortly after arrival that some of our things were still in the car (my mobile phone being one). "Ejected from the premises" on the word and the whim of a 10yr old lad (approx) who told his Mother I'd been rude to him when he opened the door to us. After having telephoned that... More

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.

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
