My wife and I spent 4 nights at 23 Mayfield at the end of a 2-week driving tour of Scotland; it proved an excellent choice for a number of reasons. Its location on one of the main routes into the city is very convenient; we were able to leave the car at the house for the duration of our stay,... More

I recently stayed here with my girlfriend on our first visit to Edinburgh, and its fair to say we both absolutely loved it!! The staff were outstanding from the moment we walked in through the door, the room was beautifully decorated and the Scottish breakfast was top class. There are no corners cut with this place. I would recommend to... More

Ross and his staff are excellent. I will miss my full Scottish breakfast and his wonderful cheer. The room was excellent also. This place is a home away from home. it is a 7 pound cab fare or 20m walk to the major sights.

Our Grand Jacobean Suite was beautifully decorated to the highest of luxury boutique 5 star hotel standards and immaculately clean. Host, Ross's innovative breakfasts were mouthwateringly memorable. '23 Mayfield's,' breakfasts are not the standard, fruit, cereals, eggs, sausage,... More

This has got to be your first choice destination in Edinburgh. Settle for anything else and you are missing out on a real gem. Start to finish, a true pleasure to stay. Mayfield 23 is a small upmarket boutique period property ideally situated for access to the town, on multiple bus routes and £20 ride from the airport. Superbly executed... More

We enjoyed our stay at this wonderful Bed & Breakfast in Edinburgh. It is 1 1/2 miles from the city center, but it is right on the bus line so very easy to get around and there are great restaurants nearby that are cheaper than the tourist areas. The rooms were comfortable besides being beautiful. The breakfasts were delicious. The... More

As soon as my wife and I walked through the door, we were cheerfully greeted by the owner, Ross. "Landlady of the year" is no mean feat. But you can see how Ross earned it! He gave us information on the local area, and recommendations on where to go for food and drink, as he showed us the beautiful dining... More

Wonderful welcome from Ross, who takes enormous pride in this guest house, which he renovated with real love. Incredibly helpful and efficient while being really friendly as well. Spotless room and bathroom, great facilities – high end and classy. The food is a big feature and is excellent. If I return to Edinburgh, I will definitely stay here. It’s only... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at 23 Mayfield. We were greeted with warm welcome from the owner Ross who could not have been more helpful and recommended excellent restaurants during our stay. Our room was gorgeous as was the whole guesthouse - we even managed a dip in the hot tub which was great after a long day of sightseeing.... More
