Almost "very good". The very good points; Inexpensive for a double with ensuite and full Scottish breakfast in Edinburgh. Lovely, genuine welcome and very accommodating & pleasant owners. Despite what is on some websites, there is actually onsite parking if you book ahead properly. Good location for what we wanted to do in Edinburgh. Clean, warm, and comfortable bed in... More

Me and my partner stayed with Janette in Adam Drysdale for 8 nights. Was met with a very warm welcome, shown to our room which was spacious, clean and had a nice big ensuite. Janette makes a lovely hostess, very welcoming, friendly, and nothing too much trouble. Delicious breakfast every morning. Will definitely be staying here again next year. Thank... More

Small and friendly guest house in a very convenient area. Breakfasts were cooked fresh to order and there was plenty of choice and a fresh pot of coffee. Would definately use again. Room ok and very clean but the en-suite was very small. Wouldnt put me off though.

We went for a short two day break to Edinburgh and found Adam Drysdale House had a last minute cancellation. Lucky for us. Our stay was so enjoyable with the staff being so cheerie and Janette keeping everyone in a relaxed mood. Room was excellent, food first class our only problem was we wished we could have stayed longer.

The Drysdale house was very nice to stay with. The morning breakfasts were traditional and great. The services couldn't be better. We were even surprised on a return to the room to find a bouquet of flowers and bottle of wine from the hosts. Graham and Janet sre wonderful people and we recommend staying here anytime.
