I stayed at the Abcorn for two nights and had a really pleasant stay. The room was nice and comfortable and the breakfast was good. The hosts are really friendly and give a warm welcome on arrival. The location is convenient and easy to get into the city centre by bus. I would stay again and recommend it to anyone... 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.

This Lovely building is in a great location for exploring Edinburgh (Or attending the rugby!) There is a bus stop right outside that goes straight to the city centre, it's perfectly walkable too. The greeting upon arrival was great, the guys that run The Abcorn are very friendly and approachable, they really seem to care about your stay. Our room... More
