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.

We stayed at 20 Albany Street at the end of the Edinburgh festival and were royally treated by Denise (and Rollo). Never having been to Edinburgh before we had no idea where to stay for the final days of the festival and had heard of 20 Albany Street from the tv. It was a resounding success and Denise could not... More

We stayed at this B&B for two nights in Edinburgh. It was very elegant, Denise is wonderful, and location and service were superb! Denise was very helpful with restaurant recommendations and reservations as well as general information. Staying in one of the Georgian buildings in New Town was a plus! We would definitely come back again if in Edinburgh.

A special B&B conveniently located in the heart of Edinburgh's new town run by Denise, a friendly and perfect hostess. Treated as a guest in her family home which was kept immaculate and full of homely touches. We were offered the use of a super large sitting room where we were served tea on arrival but as we stayed during... More

So happy we chose 20 Albany Street for our base in Edinburgh, rather than a hotel. This B and B has it all, a great location, walkable distance from the castle, and all else in this great city. We stayed in the James Craig suite and it suited our needs very well, a comfy king bed and updated bathroom. And... More

Owned and managed by Denise, this is an outstanding, conveniently-located B&B in an outstanding City. It is close to the main train station; bus- stops for several routes; a stop for the new tram system which runs right through town and out to the airport; an easy walk to main attractions and close to excellent neighborhood restaurants and pubs.

We have recently had a 5 night stay at 20 Albany street, the room was lovely and clean and had everything you could wish for. Denise was very helpful and informative on all the things we wanted to do. Breakfast was delicious and we were always met with a smile in the mornings. We will be back !!!

We stayed at 20 Albany Street for three nights earlier this week - the Robert Adams suite comprises a very large room with the biggest and most comfortable king-size++ double bed. The bathroom was very well appointed with bath and power shower. The unique selling point to 20 Albany Street is the host Denise -she greets with a smile, tea,... More

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
