I had a great time with Eleanor and her lovely daughter Freya. The bedroom is clean, neat and very comfortable and you will feel at home almost immediately. Its just 5 minutes walk to the RBG Edinburgh and easy access to city centre via public transport. If I had the opportunity to visit Edinburgh in the future, I will definitely... More

We had a short, but great time in Edinburgh! We felt at home in this excelent location, not far away from the city centre. The house has a very charming style, the room was very comfortable. Eleanor is very welcoming. We appreciated the continental breakfast. Highly recommended!

I had a very short stay at the Botanics while in town for an interview, but it was enough to convince me to come back if I get the chance! The room was clean and comfortable, and the house is in a quiet area that is close enough to the centre to travel back and forth without inconvenience. Eleanor was... More

Excelent location, away from the hurries of the city centre but by a lovely walk to it through the Botanic Garden (a must see in Edinburgh). The house has been updated very recently with a lot of style and the bedrooms are very confortable. Great attention by the owners as well, so it was a perfect stay for us!!

I stayed with my partner during the Fringe in August. We had a great stay - Eleanor is very welcoming, the room was lovely and the setting was very quiet and peaceful, a welcome break from the centre during the festival! Breakfast was great, and it was nice to be able to have it whenever we wanted. If we're in... More

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
