B&B no 45 is situated about 30 minutes walk from Edinburgh centre.The rooms are spacious and comfortable.The breakfast was excellent i was even tempted to sample the Haggis which was lovely.The best thing about no;45 is Irene she ensures a warm welcome and is a font of local knowledge.

I was lucky enough to call Number 45 my base of operations for my two day assault on Edinburgh, and found it to be a wonderfully warm, welcoming, and comfortable place to stumble home to after a busy day of tourism. Located a little away from town but well connected by public buses, it was easy enough to get to... More

We had a very nice one night stay at No 45. We were welcomed very warmly by Irene and shown to our room. The house is beautiful and our room was large and both the bedroom and ensuite were spotlessly clean. Being from out of town, Irene gave us helpful tips on how to get into the city centre. There...

We couldn't have hoped for a better B&B to stay in. Although this place is a couple of miles outside the city centre there is a very regular bus service from just nearby. Our room was very nice and absolutely spotless. It was so clean it did not need to be serviced every day while we were there - but... More

I had a wonderful three night stay at Number 45. It was a terrific location, easy to get around town and very comfortable room. The breakfast was outstanding and the people very friendly and helpful. A true gem. I would highly recommend especially to the single traveler.

Spent three nights in 45. Very friendly hosts ensuring that all our needs were met. Gave us lots of ideas for places to eat / visit. Room very comfortable, spotless and great attention to detail. Breakfast first class with lots of choice. Location is ideal for travelling to city and lots of buses just around the corne every few minutes.... More

Small friendly comfortable B&B located in a typical older local building which is conveniently for Edinburgh and the surrounding area. Good breakfast served by helpful owner. My only issue was that I ended up in the only room without en suite facilities, although I did have my own use bathroom (which was very nice) a short way down the hall.

My husband and I loved our time at Number 45! We loved the easy and convenient access to restaurants, bus stops, and the city. We greatly enjoyed the breakfast every morning in the dining room. We loved getting to know the home owners and learned so much more about the city through their knowledge. The B&B was on a nice... More

We stayed at No. 45 overnight in April. After having a bad experience previously with another B&B in Edinburgh, we were a bit unsure about staying in a B&B again and not a brand name hotel, however, this little B&B is just perfect. We were welcomed by Irene, one of the owners, who showed us to our room and she... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
No. 45 is a family run, fully refurbished 4 star B&B. We are in a great central location, on main bus route into city center. We are near most tourist attractions. Our home is a large Victorian semi-detached villa, with a beautiful Victorian staircase, and many period features throughout our home. No .45 is also fortunate enough to overlook a lovely grassy bowling green. All rooms are en-suite except, our single room it has a private bathroom. ... more   less
