We spent 2 nights at Allbury's two days ago. We were met by the host, Derrick, who was very helpful. Our room on the floor above ground was high quality...lovely old Edinburgh terrace with high decorative ceilings, recently renovated with high quality bathroom en suite. As there is no lift and is upstairs, would not be suitable for disabled guests.... More

I really can't add much to all the superlatives already spoken of; the scumptious beds, opulent decor and quirky, tasteful art everywhere you look. This perfect gem of a boutique hotel has it all - state of the art bathrooms, nespresso machines, decadent bedrooms, the list of detail is endless! Derrick's breakfasts are now legendary, using the best locally sourced... More

My partner and I stayed in this B&B when we recently visited Edinburgh for the weekend. This boutique B&B is by far the best we've stayed in! We were greeted with a warm welcome into a magnificent, spacious house with modern furnishings throughout. We stayed in the 'Jay' room which was amazingly spacious with a fantastic en-suite as well as... More

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

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

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.
