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

Wallace is a charming host and his b&b very comfortable and beautifully decorated. You will find yourself near lots of restaurants and bars and pretty walks around the water. A short bus ride will take you into the centre of the city and Waverley Station.

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
