Wallace went out of his way to make sure that I was well taken care of. I was attending a conference and he helped with my transportation needs, by taxi, bus, or walking. Had early morning appointments and he was always ready with my morning tea. The room was very spacious and clean. During my constant travels I usually stay... More

We had a wonderful stay with Wallace who was charming and interesting. The house was gorgeous: light and airy but warm even in the winter. Wallace gave a great welcome and the breakfasts were an absolute treat - both in terms of the food and the company. We actually visited at the start of the year but it was such... More

Very much enjoyed our stay at this quirky B&B situated on the top floor above the Old Assembly Rooms in Leith. Our host, Wallace, was most hospitable and charming. The apartment is all pale floorboards and white walls with many interesting pieces of art to see. We were given tea upon arrival in the attractive sitting room. Our room, which... More

Visiting Edinburgh turned into a treat staying at Wallace’s Arthouse B&B. This was a lovely, airy and spacious flat, located on the 4th floor in the listed Leith Assembly Rooms, a big solid 19th century building built for entertainment, in the newly regenerated docklands area of Leith. An area new to me but turned out to have useful shops, a... More

This is a hard review to write and given given the overwhelming enthusiasm of other recent reviews may be disregarded anyway but here goes. 1. Be aware that this B&B is up 4 very long flights of stairs. 2. There are multiple guest rooms, ours had a very very hard bed and consequently the quality of our rest was poor... More

B&B's can be a crap shoot. You never know exactly what you are going to get. Wallace and his Art House are fantastic. You'll have clean, comfortable accommodations and the best host you could hope for. His location is right across the street from several excellent pubs (I recommend Noble's) and it's a short 15 minute bus ride to the... More

The interior and content of Wallace's Arthouse Scotland is a delightful counterpoint to the peaceful Constitution Street along which the apartment is located. Bright, airy, spacious and grand with an art gallery feel, an eclectic collection of the host's beloved objet d'art and literature is tastefully "scattered" for the enjoyment of guests, making the space at once luxe yet homely....

We stayed with Wallace for three days of the Fringe Festival after a week in the Highlands. Chatting with our charming host every morning over a breakfast was a great way to start the day. Lovely, big room. We also loved the cafe across the street and the restaurants nearby along the water. After spending each day running around the... More

We stayed here for a short time and found a very charming atmosphere with an equally charming host. If you are looking for a unique place to stay, close to Edinburgh on a bus route, look no further. Wallace is a great host and can provide you with answers to your questions as to where to go, what to eat,... More

In a country full of interesting places to stay, Wallace's Arthouse is in a class of it's own! Lovely, contemporary interior in a nice old building. Wallace runs a fine establishment. The bedroom we stayed in was a nice size with plenty of room for luggage. We slept like babies in the very comfortable bed. The bathroom was added on... More
