We stayed for 2 nights. Ross was welcoming and couldn't do enough for us...recommended tourist destinations and eating options. Our room was so welcoming and relaxing. Unfortunately the weather turned on us, but the upside was that we had 23 Mayfield to retreat to. Breakfast was sensational and took us all the way to an (early) dinner...recommended by Ross. Thanks.... More

As a property manager, I fully understand the challenges involved when faced with meeting a guests expectations. Ross and his staff not only meet they exceed! The home is charming, intimate and breakfast a true foodie experience. You have questions? Ross has details and is ready to offer suggestions which do not disappoint. We stayed on the second floor in... More

Myself and my partner stayed here as we were attending a wedding. We booked very last minute so weren't sure what to expect and boy were we taken away...it was amazing! The owner was so friendly and welcoming despite the fact we only stayed one night. The room was beautiful with traditional furnishings, totally spotless. They kindly ironed my dress... More

We stayed at 23 Mayfield last week for a special birthday in the Grand Jacobean Suite. Room which was lovely. Breakfasts are fantastic, such a choice to choose from and so well presented. Beautiful Guest House. Free Parking and a Bus Service into Edinburgh right outside the door which takes about 10 minutes. Ross in a minefield of information if... More

This is one of the most welcoming hotels we have ever visited. We arrived very early on the sleeper train. Ross and his team took time out of their busy breakfast serving morning to get us coffee and a continental breakfast. They settled us into the comfy parlor where we warmed up and got ready for an excellent visit. Aside... More

Ross, thank you for such a wonderful stay. 23 Mayfield Gardens is one of the most beautiful hotels I have stayed in and you and your staff made it all the more wonderful. I cannot express how much I am missing the breakfasts! I will be back to visit soon.

We stayed at 23 Mayfield two nights. The decor is perfect, very elegant and opulent, yet classy. We had a warm friendly welcome from Ross. The room was spacious, clean, and with all modern requirements, even with the classic look. We had a very nice sleep, the B&B is located on a main road but it was still quiet enough... More

Lovely stay. Incredibly comfortable bed, classic style (see pics). Old films playing in the lounge. Great breakfast - vegetarian bac'n, sausages and haggis with honey/lime yogurt. We needed another night, and Ross was kind enough to call Glenalmond next door and arrange a fair-priced room for us as 23 Mayfield was booked for the night. Over the top service.

Oh my goodness, what a place. The décor, rooms and food can't be surpassed. The welcome by the owner was grand. Ross satisfied our every need and then some. 20 minute walk from the city with beautiful homes and gardens. Not to be missed. Hot tub available for those sore muscles from walking and a soothing glass of sherry to... More

23 Mayfield has been beautifully restored with spacious dining and lounge areas. Our room was tastefully furnished and had a big, comfortable bed. Ross, our host, was very welcoming, helpful and efficient. He even managed to smile when I has to wake him up at 1 am. The breakfasts were superb. The pancakes were delicious, light yet firm and the... More
