Not many places have such a helpful, welcoming and personable host as Ross. He is passionate about the food he and his team present for breakfast and it shows. My kippers were exceptional, perfectly cooked, full of flavour and looking just great on the plate! Very comfy bed. The 'Club' room is a great place to unwind after a long... More

I've stayed at 23 Mayfield three times now, for the Edinburgh Fringe. It's an oasis of calm in the chaos of the festival. When Ross says "welcome home" it really does feel as if we're back where we belong. He's a great host, friendly but never overbearing, and the whole team are professional and efficient. Rooms are beautifully decorated, again... More

If you're seeking the best Guest House in Edinburgh, the best service, the best breakfast, the most hospitable host--at an affordable price--look no further. It simply doesn't get better. From the moment you are greeted at the door from the warm and enthusiastic proprietor, Ross, you know you are in for a real treat. The lobby is warm and welcoming.... More

What an amazing place and Ross is a great host. We stayed there as a family and the welcome was amazing. We were late arriving, however, Ross still made us all welcome, including the children. The facilities at 23 Mayfield are brilliant. You are really made to feel welcome and that nothing is too much effort. Ross was more than... More

I first stayed here in 2009 during the Edinburgh Festival after myself and a friend had stayed at a previous hotel owned by Ross for New Year 2007. Everything was as good as I remember it. The room had everything we needed and the bed was comfy. The highlight is the wonderful breakfast - lots of choice and excellent service.... More

What can I say but that this is a fabulous B&B in Edinburgh. Super rooms and absolutely great breakfasts with only the best ingredients. Great hosts who are so welcoming. Bonus of a hot tub in the garden.

We were lucky to get a room during the festival and as my late birthday present. The owner, Ross, a lovely chap, super enthusiastic and full of knowledge about places to go around the city. An honesty bar in the lounge was a nice touch, we could mix ourselves a cocktail, and a touch of trust goes a long way.... More

Booked as a treat for my daughter who waxed lyrical for days after her return: 'fabulous from start to finish' and would love to stay again. Host - Ross - was extremely welcoming and friendly. Breakfast was delicious. Already about to book again for another family member's surprise birthday treat. Many thanks!

I booked this place based on the great reviews and was pleasantly surprised by it actually exceeding my expectations. Ross is clearly completely focussed on making your stay as enjoyable and fun as possible and really stops at nothing to facilitate this. We arrived before check in time - leaving a car in their car park to explore Edinburgh -... More

Wow, my second stay and without doubt just a fantastic place to be. Believe it or not I actually live in Edinburgh, but circumstances required me to find a bed at extremely short notice, Ross the owner was both understanding and welcoming at a time of day when many would turn their nose at a single traveller requiring a one...
