I chose 23 Mayfield because it was one of the top rated guest houses in the Telegraph Travel supplement last month, and now I can see why. The room I had was stunning inside and had an incredibly comfortable bed. The staff were amazing and I don't think I have tasted a better breakfast in a hotel or guest house... More

23 Mayfield is situated 10 minutes from Edinburgh city Centre, it is in the Newington area which had good bars and restaurants, I visited with my partner and we were made to feel very welcome from the minute we met Ross, he gave us a tour of the guest house which is beautifully decorated and in keeping with the period...

Our family of four spent three nights at 23 Mayfield and were extremely pleased with the experience and would highly recommend it. The top floor family suite is roomy and very nicely decorated. The made-to-order breakfasts are quite an experience and go well beyond the typical. We enjoyed relaxing in the lounge, playing games and planning out our sightseeing strategy.... More

Last minute booking and i'm very glad we managed to get booked in! The house is beautifully decorated, Ross is a great host, friendly and helpful. Breakfast was first class! Fab rooms, decor, towels, beddings all great. Hot-tub was a great bonus too :) Great location, we walked everywhere, no need for bus, although that option is available. I would... More

This place is like stepping onto a film set in Downton Abbey, everything is perfect, period features but with modern comforts, every detail is just right, from the candlestick holders perched on stacks of old books, to the Chesterfield leather sofas, a beautiful breakfast, real coffee in the bedroom, tiled flooring in the hall, honesty bar and Victorian period rooms......

We found the rooms to be fantastic. The food was hot and the staff friendly. We will definitely be back to stay. It's really easy to get the bus into town. We love the decor. Edinburgh is a great city break.

My husband and I visited Edinburgh for the first time and chose 23 Mayfield as a result of their wonderful reviews. We were delighted with our choice. Ross is a wonderful host and made sure we were comfortable from the beginning to the end of our stay. We had the Grand Jacobean Suite, a lovely and well appointed room. Nice... More
