Just up for a brief visit but was over the moon with my stay at the beautifully located and the wonderfully cared for 20 Albany Street. My host, Paddy was delightful (quite a character) and his breakfasts are to die for. I can't recommend the place highly enough and will certainly be returning in the future.

We recently stayed for 4 nights in this lovely B&B so that we could visit our daughter and celebrate her birthday. Our host, Denise, gave us a warm welcome when we arrived with a pot of tea, a plate of delicious lemon cake and a warming glass of malt whisky! Our room was exquisite with a large comfortable bed, complimentary... More

Amazing place to stay whilst in Edinburgh. Beautifully appointed rooms, ample comfortable shared spaces and full, delicious breakfast with pretty much whatever you like! I highly recommend the friendly, sumptuous B&B here within easy walking distance of the tram and Central Edinburgh. A much better choice than staying at a city centre hotel. Would highly recommend it!

Lovely bed and breakfast. Warm and hospitable hostess, lovely room and fantastic breakfast. Well worth a visit. Close to Edinburgh''s city centre, Playhouse Theatre, local bars, resturants and shopping.

When we arrived early in the morning knowing the room would not yet be ready but planning to drop our bags Denise so kindly offered us breakfast. It was heavenly to be treated so well after an overnight flight. That was only the beginning....a great location, comfortable room and bathroom, recommendations for restaurants and things to do plus the added... More

What a wonderful place to stay. Denise welcomed us with a wee dram and the best shortbread I have ever had. My Scottish husband was delighted by the "full Scottish breakfast", and ordered this every morning he could. Denise went above and beyond by preparing us a "breakfast to go" when we had a very early train to Gleneagles, at... More

Denise has thought of everything hair dryers, hot water bottles, robes, umbrellas, adaptors – you name it, it is in the room! Fresh flowers and scotch welcomed us and the mints, chocolates and shortbread were restocked every day. The linens were so comfortable and the bed was a dream. The shower was the best of our trip, hot with strong... More

We arrived by train in Edinburgh and took a cab to the B&B. The cab cost about 5 pounds. Thankfully we decided to take a cab because Edinburgh is hilly, like San Francisco. While it is a very short walk from the train station to the B&B, the first half of the walk is up hill which I didn't realize... More

Denise is the consummate hostess where everything happens with ease, whether special dietary requests or insights of where to go and where to eat. The location couldn't be more convenient--within walking distance of everything you want to see or do in Edinburgh but just removed to avoid the crush and the noise and perhaps the tourist hubbub.
