My wife and I stayed at Wallace's on the advice of a colleague. While we were initially hesitant to stay in Leith rather than the center of Edinburgh, we were incredibly glad that we went with Wallace. He was an incredibly charming host, helpful in every way possible. Staying there felt like staying in the extra bedroom of the most... More

Wallace's Arthouse Scotland - a light and spacious two double-bed property located on the top floor of the old Leith Assembly Rooms. The property is carefully decorated and furnished to its owner's personal taste and character, thus unconventional; lucid and uncluttered - saying without hesitation what comes to mind. A personal and communicative space, achieved without being at all overbearing,... More

Really enjoyed my stay. Great witty and interesting host. Nice part of Edinburgh which I had never really explored. The arthouse was really interesting and great value for money. The art in Wallace's home is fantastic and Wallace's knowledge nde for an interesting and relaxed stay. Nice guy. Nice place.

First time staying and looking forward to going back, great location and warm host. Wallace was very knowledgeable and entertaining. Location is a short bus ride to city center, very quiet and relaxing location. Highly recommend this place and my great new friend for his great hospitality!

We asked a friend for a recommendation for somewhere to stay in Edinburgh and this charming gentleman's establishment was their recommendation. We didn't want a chain or a big hotel and were looking for something different and were delighted with the individual and charming nature of Wallace's establishment. There are only two guest rooms in this top floor B&B (no... More

As others have said, Wallace is a fantastic host and really makes you feel at home. This is a great place to stay, particularly if you want to spend some time in Leith (2 minutes from The Shore). Wallace was helpful and is very easy to talk to and also provides a lovely breakfast of pastries, jams and perfect coffee.... More

Originally coming from Edinburgh, I'd heard about Wallace's Arthouse but had never stayed. We stayed for two nights and my only regret is we couldn't stay longer - but we'll be back! Beautiful, comfortable, quirky and stylish apartment. Spotless throughout with very comfortable beds. Wallace had the prosecco out within minutes and we were chilling and laughing in the lounge...

We have just returned from a brilliant weekend in Edinburgh, having visited to watch the Six Nations rugby at Murrayfield. On planning our trip we scrolled through countless Hotels and B&Bs but none of them appeared to have much charisma or charm. That is until we stumbled upon Wallace's Arthouse, Leith. The promise of an eccentric host and a homely... More
