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

I had two different rooms, two different dates, and the second room was as lovely as the first. I agree with all the wonderful things that others have said about this B&B. The location was superb. The room(s) were expansive and the beds were delightful. John obviously enjoys satisfying and entertaining his guests. I am looking forward to returning so... More

This was our first time in Edinburgh and John was incredibly friendly & helpful. He really enjoys interacting with guests and took the time to help us newbies get acquainted with this beautiful and ancient city. Our room we had was massive and well-appointed (fantastic bed). And the location couldn't have been better. It is a beautiful & quiet neighborhood... More

Stayed 2 nights while visiting Edinburgh and found McCraes's to be an excellent base for our visit to this wonderful city. We had a large room at the back of the house which was very quiet and had a very large and fabulously comfortable bed. It is a lovely walk into the city and there are some good restaurants near...

I make every decision on travel based on trip advisor. Anyone that gives John a 4 star, much less a 3 star, rating deserves to have their head examined. You won't find a more accommodating concierge at a 5 star hotel, a more pleasant place to sleep, or a better breakfast in Scotland. Disclaimer: 1st time in Edinburgh. Location: yea.... More

Combine a large exciting city with a historic townhouse B&B, within walking distance of the Mile, the Castle, the Fringe, the University, and the train station, and there you have it. The innkeeper makes a good breakfast and the rooms are comfortable.

Just a quick review of McCrae's B&B in Edinburgh. It is a lovely friendly place only about 20 minutes walk from Waverley station. Our room was clean & tidy. John was very helpful and had good knowledge of local attractions and places to eat. All in all we would recommend this B&B without hesitation.

McCrae's B&B is a comfortable, clean and friendly place. It is within walking distance of the Royal Botanic Gardens and Princes Street. We felt at home and got a good night's sleep on our first night in Edinburgh after walking the West Highland Way. John is a wonderful and friendly host, the room was spacious, including the bathroom! Very lovely,... More

We stayed in several B & Bs during our trip to Scotland, and McCrae's was by far the best of all. We enjoyed skyping our kids with the free wifi, resting on a very comfortable king size bed, and most of all, the friendly service. I highly recommend you stay here.

Thank you very much for such high praise Angela, it's great to know I'm doing well compared to other B&B's out there. It was a pleasure having you both here and I hope to see you again at some stage. John More

We can highly recommend McCrae's. We had room 1 at the front of the house and couldnt hear any traffic. The traditional wooden shutters and heavy curtains kept out all the dawn light so I slept like a log. John is helpful and accommodating and we really enjoyed our breakfast. The taxi back from town is about £7-£8 and the... More
