My husband and I stayed at 23 Mayfield for three nights in May 2014. We had an incredible stay. From the warm greeting of Ross's Mom when we arrived to the amazing breakfasts to Ross's fabulous hospitality. The location is perfect. It is a bit away from the noise and hustle of the main attractions of Edinburgh but close enough... More

Back from a long weekend - absolutely excellent stay. Rooms are extremely comfortable, breakfast was excellent, honesty bar is well stocked and priced. The location is brilliant - easy to reach from the ring road, on a major bus route into the city centre - all in all the perfect guest house

Ross is so fun. He will welcome you, answer all your questions, serve you great food and include his great sense of humor with it all. 23 Mayfield is beautiful. My room had rich wood and antique art and furniture. I will be back.

I always stay at this B&B when I visit Edinburgh. One of the great features for the B&B is Ross and his staff. The food is always spectacular and the accommodation is fantastic. I like to walk, so I don't have any problems walking into town from the B&B. Lots of shops and restaurants along the way too. Make this... More

Just returned from a two night stay here. Everything was lovely. Beautiful room and amazing breakfasts. The attention to detail made all the difference, for example fresh water and complimentary home made tablet in the bedrooms. Ross goes out of his way to make you feel welcome. We will definitely be back, and are already planning our next trip!

We stayed here for two nights in June. Our room was lovely, a good size, and the bed was very comfortable. The property was quiet - perfect for sleeping. Breakfast was delicious. Parking was available on-site. We were able to walk to several restaurants for dinner in the neighborhood. The host was very helpful with suggestions for seeing the must... More

Our family of four stayed in the family room at 23 Mayfield at the end of June and found it was the best B&B of our trip. The room was beautifully decorated and the beds and bedding very comfortable. With the curtains closed the room was nice and dark and quiet and cool for sleeping. The bathroom was very nicely... More

Just completed a three night stay and thoroughly enjoyed every minute. Accommodation was first class with nothing too much trouble for Ross. Good secure off street parking available, regular bus service to Royal Mile and city centre with stops virtually outside the premises in both directions. Breakfasts were high quality, plentiful and served with a welcoming smile. Our high hopes... More
