Its about 30 mins to the city on foot, all well lit, ample parking in the street - did not need the car for the whole of our stay. Would recommend it and will be staying there the next time we come up for the festival..

We stayed for three nights and loved the room, the house and the area. Irene and her husband are fantastic hosts and are very welcoming. Thank you both, we had a fabulous break and felt at home in your house in Edinburgh.

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.

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.

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
