My sister Sandra and I stayed for four nights at the end of August 2014. The owners are both absolutely lovely - nothing is too much trouble. Comfortable, clean rooms and a lovely breakfast. Just a short walk to the castle and Princes Street. Would most definitely stay again!

Stayed here during the Fringe! Recieved a decent rate and stayed in a newly renovated room along with our own newly renovated bathroom! Close to everything and Jeanette was very accommodating. A cozy and terrific stay.

I stayed for 3 nights in total. I initially stayed in room 4 (twin) which although is awaiting refurbishment was very clean and met with our approval. The en-suite bathroom for this room is quite large, which makes a change from most B&B's I have stayed in. I moved to room 5 (double) for one night due my partner arriving... More

We booked a double room for the weekend of 24/25th May 2014. We booked based on the feedback provided by others and the photos on both Late room's website and the guest house's own website. We received an email on 3rd March telling us that due to refurbishment of one of the floors, they could not put us up in... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at Adam Drysdale House for two nights. The owners are extremely welcoming and Janette cooks an excellent breakfast! The location is fantastic and there is parking available. The only thing we'd say is that there wasn't much noise isolation between the bedroom and the corridor which meant it could be a bit noisy at times,... More
