I can verify the comments below. We have been staying in B&B’s on Priestfield Road for 7 years. A great place to be whilst our daughter was at University here, walking distance to Pollock Halls and Arthur’s Seat. I have also walked into the city from here but there is a good bus service at the end of the road.... More

As ever we had a lovely stay at Dunedin. This was our third stay here in a year and the hospitality was as good as ever, a fabulous breakfast and a really warm welcome. We stayed for two nights in the double room at the front which has a lovely view across to Arthur's Seat. The B&B is a short... More

Perfectly located guesthouse with excellent hosts. Very welcoming and willing to help with any requests large or small. The cooked breakfasts were freshly prepared and tasty. Hearty enough to keep you going for most of the day. Would highly recommend to anyone travelling to this part of Scotland.

We stayed here for 4 nights while exploring Edinburgh and area. We had one of the family rooms as we were traveling with our infant son. Our room was large, and at the top of the stairs. It was tastefully decorated and spacious. Our bathroom was good, although there was only a shower. The owners are lovely and have a... More

We stayed at the Dunedin House for 3 nights in early August. We had a great visit to Edinburgh. The Dunedin House is in a great location. We took the bus and taxi into the center of downtown. Very easy for either. David is a great host and serves a good breakfast. Parking is challenging if you drive. But, our... More

We stayed here for 3 nights as part of our 3 week trip through Great Britain. Dave is very business like but once you engage him in conversation he can provide you with a wealth of historic, cultural knowledge. The room was very comfortable and the B&B is in a quiet residential neighborhood with street parking. The B&B is a... More

This inn does everything right -- spacious, airy room with large bathroom, beautiful public spaces, gracious host, delicious breakfast. Very convenient to city center via public bus; can also walk it in about half an hour. Many good restaurants within walking distance. We'll be back.

We stayed in the top floor family room that was well-appointed and had views of Arthur's seat. Breakfast was delicious, freshly-cooked and generous. On the day when we had to leave early, a bagged breakfast was provided. The guest house is in a leafy part of the city with frequent busses making the 10-15 min journey into the heart of... More
