My husband and I spent 1 night in this cosy guest house. The owner Mirella is lovely and very friendly. I phoned before hand and asked if we could book in early, usual check in is 2pm but we arrived at 12 and room was ready which was excellent as we were in Edinburgh to see The Lion King and... More

I will echo the positive comments from others regarding the great and friendly service from Mirella. Yes, the house is a bit old fashioned, and the breakfast room is basic, but I was very comfortable, and there was everything I needed in my room, and for breakfast. It was a perfect location for touring the East side of Edinburgh, and... More

We spent 5 nights in this charming and cosy guest house, where the owner gives a special care to each of one of its guests. Everyday we had cookies and mineral water as well as a large choice of hot drinks at disposal for free. We had a fresh breakfast every morning specially cooked for us, from the traditional scottich... More

I hesitated before writing a review but ultimately decided it could help other guests book a better room if they decide to stay here. We were here one night during our Edinburgh holiday, and although the host Mirella was very pleasant, we were less than thrilled with our room- due to size and location. It looked onto the street, and... More

Thank you for taking your valuable time to review my establishment.

I really enjoyed our stay at Edinburgh House. The host Mirella is really no-fuss, but accomodating and efficient at what she does - nothing was any trouble to her. She let us check in as soon as the rooms were prepared so that we could spend the day seeing the city. The room was huge and had a large ensuite... More

Very nice B&B, Mirella was really sweet, everything inside the hotel was new. Small and nice B&B, located close enough to the city. Breakfast was also very good, and I loved the small chocolates in the room. Could have Internet in the room, though, just had it in the common areas.

Okay, it is not the Taj Mahal, but it is well-serviced, and not that far from Waverly Station. It really is a 10 minute walk. Ask for a room that looks out on the green leafy garden courtyard. You have a choice for breakfast and it is good too! Ample toiletries in the room -- even bandaids (plasters)! Very clean... More

What a find this place is. Mirella is the perfect hostess and the extras in the rooms put many rated hotels to shame. The room was comfortable and spotless. The breakfast was amazing and enough to feed an army! Only stayed one night but next time in Edinburgh will surely return to Edinburgh House. Margaret and Catriona from Ayr

We only stayed one night, a pity as our other B and B was not in the same class. Mirella was excellent hostess and breakfast wonderful. Room had more extras than most places. If ever return to Edinburgh it would be our number one B and B booking Errol and friends' Brisbane' Australia

Mirella is one of the nicest and friendliest people I have come across!! The pride she takes in her B&B is amazing.
