We had a two night stay at the Abcorn Guest House. It was outstanding. The room was clean and spacious (though the floors were a bit creaky), the breakfast was outstanding, the service was outstanding. They helped us print boarding passes, call a taxi to the airport and even packed us sandwiches and snacks for our last morning, because we... More

I stayed at this B&B in a double room which was very comfortable and clean. There are tea and coffee facilities, a TV and en suite. I thought this was good value for money. However, we were told on arrival that breakfast was only served between 8-9am. As I was staying on a weekend and had been working all week... More

We stayed here for two nights en route to The Applecross Peninsula. Abcorn House is a little way out of the city but a pleasant and easy walk to the centre. Buses stop outside the front door and are frequent. The house is somewhat dated but our room was comfortable and perfectly acceptable. Our host was friendly and welcoming. It... More

Stayed here for one night last weekend when I was attending a wedding at Prestonfeild house. I had a single room which was very small but very clean and comfortable. The house itself was a little old fashioned but very clean and peaceful. Location was ideal for me and close to everything you really need. Main owner/manager was really helpful... More

We were very pleased with the accommodation which was roomy, clean and well furnished. The en-suite(shower only), although small was clean and well-maintained. On a convenient bus run into the city centre and passing the Festival Theatre. Bus stop outside the B&B and regular buses into city. The owners were very welcoming and helped when I unfortunately left my suitcase... More

A very pleasant trip - this was a convenient location for visiting Edinburgh, the B&B was nice and traditional and good value, I met the recent new owners who gave a friendly welcome and had a good local knowledge for visiting the area.
