This is the second time that I have stayed here. The host, Graham, is super friendly. The facilities are good, it's clean and tidy. The breakfast has been a highlight of my trip in Edinburgh on both occasions, a full Scottish breakfast and all the tea, coffee, juice, toast, cereal and fruit you want. The location is also really convenient,... More

I stayed in Brothaigh House last august with my family during the Fringe festival and the Tatoo military festival. The house is very nice, the service is good. It's close to the centre and there are a lot of bus to travel to the centre (sometimes we walk because is not to far). Good breakfast with also tipical scottish food.... More

This victorian house b&b is situated about 20 minutes walk from Royal Mile, and if you don't want to walk, just in front of it there's the bus stop. If you have your car, there are parking places in the surrounding streets: the b&b car park's at the rear of the house is quite small. The owner were very helpful... More

Usual continental breakfast with scrambled eggs, bacon, cereals, some fresh fruits, toast, marmelade coffee and tea; it was good but... More

The owners are absolutely lovely, they made us feel at home, were available to give advice and genuinely cared how we were enjoying their city. On... More

We arrived via Scotrail from Aberdeen and took the bus (1.50 GBP) to Brothaigh in about 10-15 minutes. The residence in set in a neighbourhood of BnB establishments that look like they were single-family dwellings of the same era. We were in room 2 upstairs with double bed and ensuite with window facing the lane and the backyard of other... More

Great location served well by numerous bus routes outside the door. Basic, dated accommodation in need of some TLC, particularly the bathroom which was quite small with no shelving to put anything and quite an old, inadequate shower with watered down handwash and shower gel. Basic breakfast served by a genial host who showed us both how to use a... More

Our group of 5 shared one large room in this B&B in July 2013. The room was normally a quad but they put an extra bed in it at our request. There was still plenty of room to move around. The beds were very comfortable; the room was clean and nicely decorated. Our room was on the road side of... More

Clean and good value for money but we were rather surprised that there was no soap in the bathroom and that there was no proper shower (an attachment only that barely worked). Still have to say the owner was a character and the breakfasts made up for the slightly basic amenities. For the price and convenience to where we wanted... More
