Fiona & Jimmy were very attentive providing a wonderful base for our honeymoon in Edinburgh. The vegetarian breakfast was very filling and beautifully cooked. The room was spotless and we couldn't have wished for more. We would thoroughly recommend Glenalmond House.

My Mum and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Glenalmond and would highly recommend this guest house to others. The location is great, close enough by bus to access the city but also tucked away from the hustle and bustle. Fiona and Jimmy gave us a warm reception and were very helpful, informative and friendly. The breakfasts are very good... More

Lovely B&B not too far from the Old Town. Our host and hostess could not have been more gracious and accommodating after a mixup at our previously booked B&B. We felt we had a better experience than we could have hoped for. Fiona shared her lovely house that she and Jimmy have decorated with loving care. We enjoyed using the... More

This is fantastic accommodation in Edingburgh. It's away from the city centre which isn't a problem at all with regular buses over the road that take you directly to the royal mile in no time. At night it is very peaceful with it being outside of town. We stayed in a standard double room on the ground floor and although... More

I stayed at Glenalmond House with my wife as part of a large party for a wedding and was more than impressed with the hospitality shown by Fiona and Jimmy who could not have done more to make us all welcome. The rooms and facilities were impeccable with Fiona on hand to help with any request that may make our... More

This was our fourth visit to Edinburgh in the last 18 months and each time we have stayed with Fiona and Jimmy at Glenalmond House. We have enjoyed our stays so much that on the last visit we booked all 9 rooms to accommodate ourselves, family and friends for our wedding. Fiona and Jimmy are the perfect hosts and offer... More

Sorry - we spent most of the night chuckling over the "Starbucks is too far away" review. Ridiculous. Anyway, stay was great. We were staying at 23 Mayfield and required an additional night, but Mayfield was booked. Ross rang Jimmy at Glenalmond and worked out a reasonable price for us. Jimmy took us in with a smile, gave us a... More

We spent 4 nights here for our break visiting Scotland. Being distanced about a mile from the city centre means that it is in the quieter end of town, and with regular buses nearby, it's perfect for those who don't always fancy the walk. Glenalmond house is beautiful from the front and is just as wonderful inside, the furniture and... More

Stayed in RM 6 (4 Poster Room) for 3 nights. The house is a traditional Edinburgh house retaining most orginal features and character. Well run with clean well equiped rooms and ensuite. A range of excellent Breakfast options and great location make this an excellent base to explore Edinburgh old town from.

We had a pleasant 2 days stay here. Very clean, very friendly and great breakfast. Handy for a walk or getting a bus into the centre and you can leave your car in the car park. Just one negative for us was the style of furniture in the room, as the size and shape of it meant we banged our... More
