We had a lovely stay at Auld Reekie. Nice place and friendly people. Rooms are good. Good breakfast with lots of choices. Very good for your trip to Edinburgh. Good connection to the centre by foot or bus. We love this city!

Comfortable bed & overall the room & washroom very tidy & clean. Breakfast very nice and the dining area felt really comfortable with ample... More

The B&B is not too far from the endinburgh centre, just alright. Our room was quit large, but what makes this place special, is the hostess. She is a very nice, warm and pleasant woman. The atmosfere was relaxed.

We had the family room for 3 adults in 3 beds, the room was large with a good size tv and a settee in the bay window. We knew it was a mile out of the centre but also on a main bus route so no problem getting in/out of town. Nice breakfast.

We arrived here for a three night stay to start our honeymoon. Rhona, the owner, greeted us and was extremely friendly and welcoming. There was a slight mix-up with our room, but it was handled with grace. Loved the friendly atmosphere! Excellent, and quiet location, quick bus ride to downtown and walk to Holyrood Park. Breakfast was delicious every morning... More

Had a lovely weekend stay here, could have stayed much longer chatting to the very friendly Rhonda! The rooms are traditionally decorated and the doors were being given a fresh lick of paint when we were there so it should be looking tip top all summer! The bathroom was pretty small, but that is fairly normal for a B&B. The... More

The host is very friendly and eager to cater for all her customers, she goes the extra mile to make sure all her guest are comfortable. It made a lovely... More

Stayed for 2 nights at the end of our Scotland tour. In a quieter suburb of Edinburgh but city centre is easily accessible by bus. Lovely hosts very friendly and helpful. We stayed in room 1 with a king size bed, which was lovely but filled the room. The bathroom was small with a small sink. Having said that we... More

What a fantastic wee bed and breakfast , Our host Rhona makes you feel like you've known her for years. Will definitely be back. The house has a lovely homely feel to it, very relaxed atmosphere and great value for money
