Stayed here for 4 nights to do some sight seeing and to travel across to Glasgow for the commonwealth games. All in all I would probably rate this as a "good" place to stay - although there isnt that option on the rating system so have edged to very good as it definitely is not average! I would also add...

Have just spent two days at this B&B. The welcome we received was perfunctory, not warm at all. When you enter the premises you are faced with a number of doors and then the rather steep circular stairs. of course there is no lift so if you have difficulty with stairs, this is a place to avoid. Over the two... More

Not sure what warm welcome everyone here was talking about. We got a somewhat awkward welcome and were asked to pay for our 2 nights immediately. The credit card machine wasn’t working so we were told we could try the next day. The next day while eating our breakfast we were reminded about the payment and were asked if we... More

This is a lovely place with tastefully decorated well serviced rooms.

We stayed in Blossom House during our first visit to Scotland last month. It is a small cosy place with a warm welcome. The hosts went out of their way to assist us. The rooms were lovely and clean. Our room had a view to Arthur's Seat, an extinct volcano. It is not a fancy hotel but a place where... More

Very comfortable, just the job for our overnight stay after the rugby International. Convenient for bus routes into town. Room was cosy and warming. Hosts very welcoming. Certainly would consider using again.

After a night in Bruges, I went up to Edinburgh for two nights to visit friends. Blossom House was only around the corner from their place. I arrived late but because I had paid for my room beforehand, check in was straight forward and simple. When the lady answered the door she knew who I was and welcomed me with... More
