The breakfasts are outstanding. The amenities are amazing including wine, treats, coffee, tea, etc. You can also walk virtually anywhere to the main attractions. There are lots... More

We stayed at Six Brunton in mid May. We absolutely loved every moment of our stay there. The location is excellent. We never needed public transportation, we walked everywhere, including the Royal Mile, the Castle, Arthur's Seat and Royal Yacht Britannia. Sue was an excellent owner and host. She is very friendly and always there to assist with any questions... More

This B/B is perfect in every way. I don't think I am exaggerating when I say our hostess and owner Sue, made every aspect of our recent stay with her perfect. We enjoyed five nights in the Garden Room with its own private door out to a peaceful garden. The bath for this room had a spacious shower as well... More

Others have already said just about all there is to say, but we will add to the chorus: It's a stellar experience - both in quality of accommodation and delightfulness of the owner, Sue. Her enthusiasm is infectious, she is helpful and sweet, and she conveys genuine interest in her guests. Everything was first-rate, and we would stay there again... More

From the moment we enquired about this B&B, to the moment we checked out, it was nothing but first rate. Sue, the owner, was gracious, friendly, and willing to answer any questions about the city. Breakfast was filling and very delicious. We stayed in the Garden room--spacious and well decorated and a walkout to a private garden area. Should we... More

The room was pleasant with delicious flapjacks and lots of tv channels. Comfortable bed, good heating, complimentary chocolate. Breakfast was ample and quality. Our host was welcoming and helpful, giving us good ideas for what to see in town.

We came for a short weekend getaway and were blown away by the gorgeously furnished Georgian house, wonderful bed, magnificent shower, great breakfast but most of all by the lovely host. The only drawback was that the room was so nice we were loathe to leave it and didn't see as much of Edinburgh as we otherwise might. A shockingly... More
