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

I stayed in the Courtyard Room for two days whilst I came up to compete in the Great Edinburgh run. The location of the guest house was ideal as it was just a 10 minute walk to Holyrood park, Holyrood palace and Dynamic Earth. The guesthouse was amazing and I was made to feel welcome by Sue the minute that... More

This is a wonderful place to stay. Sue is an amazing host - so welcoming and friendly. The breakfast was AMAZING (I'm still dreaming of those little fresh baked muffins) and the chocolate bars and flapjacks in the room were a lovely touch. This B&B also has a really cosy lounge area with huge couches, a fire place and complimentary... More

Just discovered an absolute gem of a place. My wife and I were in Edinburgh for a friends wedding and needed to stay close to their address. Read all the glowing reviews and thought it was worth a punt. Well I have to say that if you value faultless service and attention to detail then don't look for anywhere else.... More

We stayed in the room called Playfair, which is good sized, beautifully decorated, very high ceilings and big window looking out over the garden. It's on the ground floor next to the stairs and although the house was full we never heard the other guests. Sue is so friendly and can't do enough for you. The sitting room had free... More

Awesome place to stay. Was there for Ireland vs Scotland at Murrayfield. Mike and Sue were the perfect hosts and breakfast was amazing. Am now a convert to black pudding and haggis. Room was comfortable and well equipped. Shower was the perfect wake up after a late night out celebrating Ireland's win. Hope to come back and would highly recommend... More

Have returned from staying here for 4 nights in The Garden Room. Sue is a fabulous hostess, she makes you feel like nothing is too much trouble, she ordered taxi's for us and she told us which buses to catch, and she just offered us a warm welcome, and made us feel at home.

What to add that hasn't been said in the other reviews? Great location, fabulous house, great food. Sue is an excellent hostess who goes out of her way to make her stay a memorable one.
