It's not just the fine linens, original art, the incredible bathrooms, beautiful inlaid mother of pearl table and chairs at breakfast, best wifi, endless cd collection in the common room with an outstanding view of the castle, all and more than you'd expect at a 5-star establishment. Derrick has a way of making you feel like you're 5 stars as... More

I had an extremely pleasant stay at this lovely hotel . Convenient for all attractions in the City . Derrick is a truly friendly host and nothing is too much trouble . Definitely worth a return visit.

At the start of April, we came to Edinburgh to catch up with friends and celebrate a wedding. Having recently got engaged ourselves, we decided to treat ourselves and stay somewhere a bit more special than we would normally choose. We found Allburys and I'm so glad we did; by Sunday morning we didn't want to leave! We were made... More

Travelled to Edinburgh for a relaxing weekend staying at Allburys was an absolute delight.. The personal service and attention to detail made this experience so much more rewarding. My work involves many hotel stays and although mostly satisfactory you just can't emulate this style of service on a larger scale.. The location is fabulous with easy access to rail and... More

We arrived and were warmly greeted by Derrick. The room was amazing. Fantastic view of Arthur's seat. The breakfast menu is vast and locally sourced ingredients. Personally I think only a fool would miss out on the full Scottish Breakfast. Delicious! Fantastic experience. Thank you

Stayed here with a friend in November. Great experience. Derek, the host, was very pleasant and helpful. Breakfast was amazing too. I had the good fortune of getting this through a groupon offer, because although I couldn't fault the experience, I don't think I would have splashed out and paid full whack for the stay otherwise.

Tastefully decorated house, quiet room with cozy and comfortable bed, delicious inventive breakfast dishes - you would not get eggs with fresh tarragon at a hotel. The owner is a nice person who clearly is striving to make his guests feel at home. You can't go wrong with this place.

The Allburys is a very cozy B&B right along the coastline in Portobello - just a few minutes away from the Edinburgh Center. This is a nice place with clean and cute rooms. However, what makes this place so adorable is the owner couple that has been most helpful in helping with our days planning and more. The breakfast is... More

I wish I could have stayed longer at Allburys. I was in Edinburgh for a work conference and I am so glad I found Allburys. From the warm welcome from Derrick to the attention to detail it was perfect from arrival to departure. The Robin room was spacious, quiet, had a bed so comfortable I almost did not leave.

Staying in West End

Neighborhood Profile
West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in industrial Britain had their most desirable neighborhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes. Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along the district’s busy main roads. Lothian Road connects to southern Edinburgh and harbors a vague entertainment district: three theaters and the city’s main indie cinema. All attract a select crowd, the sort who appreciate the Saturday Edinburgh’s Farmers’ Market around the corner. The West End’s other great thoroughfare, Shandwick Place, is dominated by trams trundling out to the suburbs and airport, and shoppers picking up last-minute items before hopping aboard.
