Arriving after 9pm on a chilly evening, plenty parking, my room was extremely warm, cosy and quiet, all facilities, TV, Wi-Fi, tea/coffee, on suite. Great breakfast choice, George is most helpful, sourcing bus times for me to visit a friend in hospital. I will stop here again.

A great place to stay; Netherby is minutes from the airport by bus or taxi and handy on the main bus route into the city centre. The rooms are lovely - spacious, quiet and crisply decorated and furnished and there is plenty of parking. George, the owner, is very helpful, we had a particularly early start for the airport and...

What a perfect place to stay while exploring Edinburgh. 5-8 minutes from the airport. Bus stop into Edinburgh across the street. Several restaurants within walking distance of the B&B. George, the proprietor, makes a delicious breakfast each morning at the time of your choosing. He also was quite helpful with bus information, taxi call and making sure our stay was... More

I stayed here for one night recently and could not find fault with this Guest House. Comfortable room, bathroom extremely well stocked with emergency items, such as toothbrush. reader etc. George is lovely, friendly and hospitable and well informed about local amenities. Convenient for City centre and Airport and quiet. Thanks George.

George at Netherby provides large rooms, great breakfasts (to go if you have to leave early) and his B&B is very near the airport though quiet and also near the city center very comfortable Lisa Annette Powell gave him copies of her new book- CATSKILL (available on amazon) to enjoy in his limited free time and to share with friends

Stayed here for the second consecutive year. George is extremely co-operative and friendly host and could not do enough to ensure the stay is enjoyable and pleasant . Ease of access to the Airport (bus stop short walk away) was the major consideration in selecting this B & B and rooms are comfortable. Even had a breakfast tray supplied for... More

Bed was in need of replacing the drawers were full of dust but only really found this out when took clothes out of the drawer. The bathroom was clean and tidy a bit... More

The B&B is well situated close to the airport yet convenient to many bus routes at the front door to get you either to the airport or to downtown Edinburgh. Rooms are very clean and well appointed. Breakfast was top notch and George was a pleasant and gracious host. His booking for an early morning cab was very much appreciated.
