A beautifully presented establishment that offers class and luxury. Upon arrival Denise presented us with a pot of tea, some home made chocolate brownies as well as a wee dram! The rooms are stunning and spotless. Full of character and a joy to behold, probably the nicest place we have ever stayed in. Not only did we have a huge... More

We stayed here on a recent road trip through England and Scotland. We splurged for something more upmarket and this place certainly fit the bill! Simply sumptuous! With a nice slice of lemon cake and whisky from Denise, the absolutely amazing host, we got our visit to Edinburgh off on the right note. Denise takes a true luxury B&B and... More

An amazing find and the best place to stay in Edinburgh, it is just minutes walk from town and perfectly located with parking on the road outside. The bedrooms are incredibly comfortable with lovely touches of detail such as little jars of chocolates and home made tablet and a personally signed welcome letter on arrival. The breakfast choice is hugely... More

We stayed at 20 Albany Street recently on a trip driving through England and Scotland. We were thrilled to find a quiet, relaxing B&B so convenient to the sights we wanted to see in the city. At 20 Albany, Denise really offers the best of both worlds--we had every comfort we would in a luxury hotel, and didn't have to... More

My wife and I stayed at this elegant B & B a few weeks ago, and it turned out to be a wonderful way to start a three-week tour of Scotland. The owner/innkeeper, Denise, gave us a very friendly welcome (even though we arrived very early, in mid-late morning), taking time to serve us tea and cake and chat with... More

My wife and I spent 3 nights here on our first trip to Scotland last month, and we couldn't be happier with our choice. Denise is the perfect host, and was there to answer any and all questions we had on Edinburgh. Most sights are within easy walking distance, and bus and tram stops are only one block away, too....

I visit Edinburgh several times a year, mainly for a break from work for some shopping and relaxation. I have always stayed at large hotels but decided to try this B&B as it looked fantastic from the website. When I arrived I was not disappointed, a very friendly greeting from the owner on arrival which made me feel very welcome.... More
