I stayed at McCrae's B&B during the Fringe Festival in August 2014 with my sister and her grown daughter. The room was lovely and spacious, the food was delicious (best haggis!), and the door lock combination setup was very convenient. John was a great host and I would love to stay there again if I am so fortunate to return... More

I stayed at McCraes for two nights and enjoyed my stay very much! John was the perfect host - very friendly, explained me everything about the room and prepared a delicious breakfast in the morning (great coffee/tea, cereals, fruits, joghurt, toast, jam...). The room was very nice and modern and clean, of course - so was the bathroom. The bed... More

We stayed 3 nights in October. The location of the B&B was perfect for us. Just 15-20 minutes on foot to the centre. The room was very clean and comfortable. John the host was good organized and very friendly. His tips for our trip to the seaside of Edingburgh were great! We`ll come again! Sofia B.

Stayed here for 5 nights in September. We called McCrae's home while we enjoyed Edinburgh and the surrounding area. We found the beds and pillows very comfortable. A verity of teas and a kettle were provided in the room so each night I had 'sleepytime' tea before retiring. Great. Free wifi was provided and worked well. John asked us to... More

We stayed at the McCraes´s for two nights. It´s perfectly located in a residential area. In the direct neighborhood are plenty of nice restaurants. You can just stroll around and you will find an inviting place. We enjoyed that it was not as touristic as old and new town. For joining the tourist crowed, York Place is easy to reach... More

We had five nights. Clean, large rooms with full bathrooms. Good location, but if you are not a big walker, cabs are quick and local. The breakfast was large, delicious and timely. We would definitely return. Excellent suggestions for evening meals from John! Thank you!

My wife and I were very happy to stay at McCraes's B&B. The place was clean, modern and environmentally friendly, and our hosts were hospitable and accomodating to our needs (gluten free). Personally, I was a huge fan of the full vegetarian Scottish breakfast. Also - the area nearby is home to several great environmental shops/cafes. Ask your hosts! (The... More

I have staid two nights in this Bed and Breakfast in Sep 2014. Although at a 15 minutes walk from the city's main attraction (Princess Street, Royal Mile, Botanic Garden, Arthur Seat (ok, a bit more for this one!)), it is located in an absolutely quiet area. I am usually extremely sensitive to the noise and dim light at night,... More

This is a very good place to stay, it is well located only 15 min away from city centre and its a small place but really comfortable. The service is also brilliant I would definitely consider to stay again in here if I decided to go back to Edimburgh.

Friends and I stayed in the family suite for 3 nights at the end of August. It was quite comfy for 3 adults. The traditional Scottish breakfast was all that we expected, very filling and kept us energized throughout the day. At the end of our long days of enjoying the city, we relaxed with tea and shortbread in our... More
