Left the beautiful city of Edinburgh and this beautiful B&B today with a sad heart. It was our first visit to Edinburgh but it certainly won't be our last. Location - 5 min walk from Haymarket train station or a 1 min walk from the airport bus stop. An easy 15 min walk to the center of town which is... More

Allburys is a beautiful house adjacent to a stunning building (the Donaldson's school for the Blind). The rooms are beautiful, very carefully styled and fantastically well equipped. Our room (The Robin Suite) was supremely comfortable with absolutely everything you could wish for - the bed was amazingly comfortable and the fluffy gowns a treat!! A huge range of DVDs, CDs,...

We got off to a very bad start with our 2-night visit here, but thankfully it improved. I'm reluctant to moan, as an easy going person, but our host could have been more helpful at first. Unfortunately we suffered a similar experience to a previous complainant in that when we arrived at 2pm, when the room was meant to be... More

Allburys Robin Suite is a well furnished apartment with a large bedroom featuring a very comfortable king size bed. This has a beautifully appointed en suite bathroom and a sitting room with views across towards Edinburgh Castle. The accommodation is a very short walk away from Haymarket rail / tram station with excellent links to the centre of Edinburgh. We... More

We had a fantastic weekend in Edinburgh. Derek was a warm, welcoming and helpful host. He went above and beyond expectations and that was reflected in the personal and outstanding service that we received. The house itself, is beautiful, with traditional features, but has all the modern comforts that you need. And then some. The location was ideal, and everything... More

We recently stayed for a two night break and the host Derrick was lovely, very welcoming, our room was very nice, comfy bed and soft pillows. Breakfast was delightful and cooked to a high standard. We intend to go back and would highly reccommend Allburys, the cats were lovely aswell!
