Janette was a fantastic host and catered for... More

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 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

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
