Cozy B&B in New Town/Broughton area. Optimal location in a quiet side street close to restaurants and shops. Very friendly owner who gave us good advice for our holiday. We will definitely stay there again.

Maybe we were expecting too much after reading so many enthusiastic reviews. We really appreciated the B&B's eco-friendly approach, but that alone is not enough to justify the price. The B&B is in a nice area quite close to the centre, the host was very kind and helpful and the room was clean; on the other hand, the doors and... More

John W, Owner at McCraes's B&B, responded to this review

I'm sorry you were disappointed with your stay Mara. I wish you had mentioned some of these problems while you were here. For example, there is a an extractor in the en-suite bathroom and a previous guest must have switched it off. As you are staying in a normal family home, rather than a hotel, when other guests move about... More

We stayed at John's B&B the second time, now with my mother and sister. We stayed for a week and enjoyed our second stay the same as our first one. John is still the best host we got to know on our journeys. The rooms are clean and cosy, and the breakfast was delicious as usual. We can still recommend... More

A wonderfully relaxed long weekend in Edinburgh. McCraes is the perfect B & B for a trip to this fantastic city. Well situated, a short walk to the city centre with lots of great places to eat and drink almost on the doorstep. John made us very welcome and couldn't do enough to make sure we had a great and...

We have had a family Easter break at this lovely B&B. Very efficiently run by John - great communication in advance of our stay, and very hospitable and friendly during our stay. Super location. Lovely comfortable quiet rooms. Excellent breakfasts - porridge highly recommended.

Fantastic location, within walking distance of sights, restaurants etc (there seems to be a lot of buses too). Brilliant stay, extremely welcoming and a lovely atmosphere. Room was very clean and well presented, as was the rest of the place. Continental breakfast was superb, with freshly made porridge, selection of cereals, fruit, yogurt, toast and even baked goods. Awesome grub,... More

I'd highly recommend McCrae's bed and breakfast. I have stayed there twice now and would stay again. The rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. I loved the shutters, making it nice and dark, quiet and cosy. Lovely decor and artwork in the public areas and a relaxed homely feel. A good location, 10-20 min walk to resteraunts, supermarkets, the Botanic... More

I stayed here for a weekend and it was warm, cosy, modern, clean and quiet. It felt like staying at a friend’s house. John was very friendly and couldn't do enough to help. The location is a few minutes from some lovely restaurants, 20 minutes from Waverley station and 15 minutes from the sites and castle. Tram 10 minutes away... More
