We visited Elderfields Guest House last winter and had a great time. The Guest House is located near the base of the Royal Mile and very close to Holyrood Palace. We were able to walk almost anywhere. I was visiting with two friends and we stayed in the three person room on the top floor. The room was very clean... More

I stayed here for a night along with my parents and had the best time. We wish we could have a lot longer. The place was so beautiful and very clean with all the amenities you could ask for. The location was fantastic and walking distance to everything. I stayed in a small double room and was perfect for a... More

What a lovely place to spend our last 2 nights in the UK. We arrived in Edinburgh much earlier than anticipated and took the chance to stop by the guesthouse early to unload our bags and park the car. Maureen received us graciously. We were delighted to be staying in her wonderfully decorated historic house and really happy to have... More

I inquired for 7 nights and got offered a special rate "stay 7, pay six" which I gladly accepted. Elderfields Guest House is on a quiet little street, 15 minutes on food from Holyrood Palace and 5 minutes on foot from all major bus lines. It was a pity that there were not any restaurants in immediate vicinity, but this... More

Despite our late arrival, Maureen was here to greet us. We were shown to our room and we discussed our preferred breakfast time. After a good night of sleep in a clean, spacious room we were greeted to a simple but generous breakfast. She did not hesitate to answer our questions about Edinburgh and even gave us tips on where... More

I'm leaving this review as constructive criticism as many aspects of Maureen's b and b were excellent - parking , cleanliness , size of room. My partner and I and small baby booked the room at extremely short notice during the Edinburgh marathon so were grateful to have anywhere at all to stay that was of realistic price . On... More

Booked to stay here for a wedding at Our Dynamic Earth which was only a shirt walk away. The rooms were fantastic and the breakfast was great. Maureen was a fantastic host and very accommodating considering I had made a miscalculation regarding the number of rooms we needed. Would definitely recommend and hopefully will return one day!

Edinburgh's accommodation is usually over-expensive and I wasn't preparing for a luxury experience for £67.50 per room. But Maureen's B&B was a really good surprise. The house is well located 15 minute-walk from the Royal Mile; parking is easy.We had a double room and a twin. The double room, in front of the house was absolutely huge. We felt like... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Elderfields is situated in one of Edinburgh's residential areas and is a fine example of early Victorian architecture. The Elderfields Guest House was built around 1850 and is tucked away opposite the picturesque Queens Park and Holyrood Palace and close to the bottom of the Royal Mile. Princes Street is just a 15/20 minute walk away, with Edinburgh Castle dominating the local skyline. The Elderfields Guest House really couldn't be more convenient for visitors wanting to fully experience Edinburgh at its historic and vibrant best. ... more   less
