We stayed at the Botanics Bed & Breakfast for a couple of nights about a week ago. Our experience was lovely! Eleanor is a delightful and laid back hostess and probably has the quietest 3 year old we have ever met :-) House location is convenient for some Edinburgh sightseeing - there are plenty of buses to reach Princess Street...

We stayed with Eleanor and her sweet daughter, Freya, for 4 nights to attend a family wedding in the Botanic Garden next door. They both instantly made us feel at home! The room was charming and cozy - quiet, fresh flowers, fluffy bed linens, nice view of the garden. The shared bathroom was lovely and we appreciated the open access... More

My husband and I were at Botanics B&B for a short stay two nights, and the house was very comfortable and welcoming. What made it so special was the disarming manner with which the host, Eleanor, made us feel right at home. The amenities were to our liking; the room, albeit not too large, was cosy and just what we... More

My girlfriend and I spent a very nice week-end in Edinburgh. The accomodation was perfect ! Lovely and very friendly. Behind the great Botanics garden and 20 min by walk to the city centre. Possibility to take the bus near the house.

The best thing about Botanics B&B is the friendly and very helpful host (Eleanor). I was impressed when she gave me a list of 7-8 B&Bs when hers wasn’t available for the dates I had initially asked for. We eventually changed dates and stayed at her nice home near the Royal Botanic Gardens. We chatted so much about our travel... More

Eleanor welcomed 5 weary travellers into her home as her friends. We could use the beautiful kitchen as our home - we made late night cups of tea and my youngest tripped downstairs in the morning in his pyjamas as he usually does at home to sort himself out breakfast and relate his usual 9 year old stories to a...

We stayed at Botanics and loved it! It was a great location. We walked to the Royal Mile (30 minutes). There is a botanical garden right down the street that was an enjoyable walk. The lochs and the highlands are a day trip. Eleanor was a perfect host. The Botanics is small, in a quiet residential section (we were the... More

We had a wonderful two-night stay here. The location is great - right next to the Botanic Gardens and just a walk/ bus ride into town. We felt very much at home from the start - the house is comfortable and laid back and Eleanor is a relaxed and very welcoming host, with plenty of good recommendations for places to... More

We were only in Edinburgh for a quick trip and were looking for a comfortable place to stay for the night - and we couldn't have been more pleased with our choice. The decor is lovely, the beds are divine, the breakfast is delicious and Eleanor the host really made us feel welcome in her home, which is full of... More
