The place is very quiet and small, which suits me. John (the proprietor) is perfect -- pleasant, helpful, and informative about Edinburgh and Scotland when asked but not at all instrusive. I didn't spring for the hot breakfast but the basic breakfast was excellent (juice, cold cereal with milk, yogurt, fresh fruit, sweet bread and toast as well as coffee... More

Thank you for going to the trouble of submitting such a kind and detailed review Jan. Much appreciated. See you next time. Hopefully we can provide much less dreary weather for you (I hesitate to say it's beautifully sunny here at the moment) Cheers John More

We had a great 2 nights stay at McCraes B&B. The bedrooms are comfortable, the bathroom facilities are clean and fresh and the breakfast is excellent. John's banana bread is delicious! The full Scottish breakfast, with quality organic ingredients, was very good indeed, and the porridge (I sampled the sweet version) scrumptious. John is extremely helpful and accommodating and has...

We were impressed with all aspects of this spacious, clean and attractive B&B just a few minutes' walk from the railway station. The room was typical of a traditional Scottish Victorian house: spacious, homely and attractive. Excellent bathroom ensuite leading off. Breakfast was good and filling with plenty of choice. Very reasonable price, and John was very accommodating and allowed... More

My boyfriend and I really loved staying at McCrae's B&B. John is a wonderful host and the place is really exquisite. We had booked a double room with a double bed which was super comfortable. The room was cozy, very clean, with a big bathroom which had a huge shower. All the products in the room, from the tea bags... More

Very nice stay here with John. Nothing was too much trouble and we felt very welcomed at all times. I would stay here again, and would recommend it. Price was reasonable. Went the extra mile by allowing us to keep our bags in some extra hours. Thanks John!!

We had a lovely week in the beautiful city of Edinburgh and so was the stay in John's B&B. We stayed for one week and enjoyed our nice and clean room. John was very helpful and friendly and cook's one of the best breakfasts in Edinburgh. ;-) The B&B is only a 15min walk from the city center. If wished... More

Enjoyed four nights here on a break in Edinburgh. Lovely large room with spacious ensuite. Nice and quite location. Breakfast options good, flexible choice of cooked/uncooked can be ordered night before and reflected in room price. Convenient location for restaurants, botanic gardens and some traditional pubs.

Upon researching places to stay while in Edinburgh, I came across McCraes's B&B--one of the highest rated bed and breakfasts in Edinburgh. After booking a reservation and staying here, I honestly can say that I am not surprised by its reviews. The room was fantastic, with a large and incredibly comfortable bed complete with soft blankets for extra warmth, and... More

We were very well looked, after thanks to John. Very comfortable house, well placed to walk to central Edinburgh. We came by train and walked from the station and later, to galleries, Botanic Gardens etc. There are a range of good eating places nearby. (John is a find of information about such things). Very successful visit and we hope to... More
