We have just returned from a fantastic four night stay over Hogmanay and have only lovely things to say about this fantastic Guest House and friendly hosts. Our Room was beautifully appointed and great attention paid to little details and comfort for the guests. The location is really good, everything is in walking distance and there are some very good... More

By far the best B&B we stayed T in over three months travelling through Europe and the UK. HEATHER was a tremendous host, always on hand and exceptionally welcoming after a tiring rod journey. A pot of coffee and shortbread delivered to the room. Breakfast was outstanding with a choice of Scottish fare, kippers, haggis, black pudding, the full English... More

We stayed here for 1 night for my wife's birthday and have to agree with the previous reviews. Lovely room, lovely people, lovely breakfast. If staying for longer than 2 nights, I would request one of the 2 larger rooms but the bed was possibly the comfiest I slept on. The full Scottish breakfast was cooked to perfection with very...

We were guested in August for a short trip of just a couple of days, and it was also our first time in Scotland, and Edinburgh. Everything was more than excellent! Heather, the landlady, was absolutely charming and helpful; the room was spotless, new, fully decorated with a fireplace and the bathroom was brand new. We could only warmly suggest... More

We stayed for the weekend at The Hedges and could not have been happier with our choice! Heather was so welcoming from the moment we stepped through the door. Our room was beautifully decorated and so spacious with all the normal amenities plus a few little extras, should we have forgotten our umbrella or wanted to stay in the room... More

Location is great - close to the Playhouse and easy to get to all main attractions - received wonderfully warm welcome from Heather whose highest of standards shone through to our beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean and comfortable room . Enjoyed tastiest of breakfasts all tailored to suit each individual's choice from a good selection of options and quantity. Combined... More

We've been 4 nights in the Hedges B&B and all has been perfect. Heather is very nice, she tried to speak spanish as our english wasn't good at all! The room was wonderful: spacious, beautiful, clean and very silent. The breakfast is simply delicious and plentiful. We don't have any doubt: if we return to Edinburgh this would be our... More

The rooms are clean and comfortable, and Heather could not have been kinder or more accommodating. The breakfast menu is excellent, and the food was delicious. The location is also very convenient to many of the sites in Edinburgh. I would definitely stay at the The Hedges again.

I can't recommend this Band B highly enough. Heather makes you feel very welcome and is a wealth of useful information about staying in Edinburgh - great if it is a relatively short visit. The rooms are spotless, comfortable and no detail forgotten. The breakfasts are marvellous too - delicious food served in a delightful room, complete with pristine white... More
