Overnight stay in Edinburgh for my partners birthday- chose 23 Mayfield due to the reviews on TripAdvisor and they were spot on! What a gem! Beautiful room, lovely hosts, and the breakfast was out of this world! Stay here, you won't regret it! We will be back!

Flawless stay, beautiful room (#5) with a front view. Breakfast was fantastic, owner Ross the perfect host. A truly magnificent home. Look forward to visiting again, my only tip is to make your booking directly and it may be cheaper. Good location, frequent buses into town from right outside.

We were looking forward to a weekend away and wanted to stay somewhere special but intimate. The reviews for 23 Mayfield set the bar high, and it did not disappoint! The host was very accommodating of our late arrival on the first evening (at 11pm) and it was easy to let ourselves in. It was such a pleasant surprise to... More

We stayed her for Valentines Day the other year and enjoyed every minute of our stay. (I've put that we stayed in Feb 2016 below) We received a warm welcome and had the Jacobean Room for two Nights which had an amazing fourposter bed. The room was spacious with everything you needed with TV and stereo. The breakfasts were awesome.... More

Everything about this place is delightful. Ross was very warm and welcoming, the rooms and public spaces are charming (I still got beat at chess, though) and the breakfasts alone are worth visiting for. I cannot recommend it enough. My partner and I enjoyed every minute and are looking for an excuse to come back.

Had a great stay here. Ross and Kathleen are brilliant hosts and extremely friendly. Room was very comfortable and we really enjoyed the breakfasts and our first taste of black haggis... Would stay again next time we're in Edinburgh and highly recommend to others!

A perfect location to visit Edinburgh from - bus stop just outside of B&B and multiple options for buses into the old town. The hosts were pleasant and wanted to ensure we enjoyed stay. Breakfast was well presented and offered multiple options. We stayed in the Grand Jacobean which was a lovely comfortable room. The only negative, hence the 4... More

By far the best guest house I've visited. Not just in Edinburgh but in general. The first thing that strikes you is just how fantastic the place looks. I've stayed in a few places in Edinburgh over the past few years and nowhere comes close. Every aspect of the décor throughout the place is stunning. Tastefully done and sympathetic to... More

23 Mayfield is just the most luxurious b &b you could ever find. The breakfasts are just the best, with loads of choice and expertly cooked by Ross. The rooms are beautifully decorated and comfortable. Ross is just great and full of information about Edinburgh. I recommend taking his advice on restaurants and bars. Can't wait to return again.

This review is long overdue mainly because I just felt no matter what I wrote it would not do justice to this wonderful place. Our family stayed here at the start of August 2015. Our daughter was getting married in Edinburgh and we opted for 23 Mayfield as our base as we wanted somewhere special for the occasion. To say... More
