Just wanted to say anyone looking to stay at The GlenAlmond will not be disappointed. We have been travelling to Edinburgh 3 times a year for around 13 years and have stayed in several places during those years. We discovered The GlenAlmond last year after the B&B we normally stayed at closed down. It was a delight for us to... More

The facility was great, quiet and comfortable. Jimmy and Fiona prepared a wonderful breakfast for us each morning. There were 5 in our party and the breakfast table was set accordingly. Jimmy was very helpful with tips/ideas for our stay in Edinburgh. He was particularly helpful in helping us locate a bag which missed the flight from Newark. He was... More

I will begin with the positives. First, the rooms and the facility are gorgeous. The owners remodeled the building with excellent taste in choices and colors. It is just beautiful. The staff, including Jimmy and the woman who comes in to cook are just warm and lovely people. The breakfast, which was our first of a week in Scotland, was... More

Our host, Jimmy, was fantastic and provided excellent breakfasts for us. He was happy to call a taxi for us, and even arranged the return of my sister's lost luggage from the airport. The rooms were on the small side with little room for our luggage, but is still had a cozy feel to it. It's a short and easy... More

Owners welcomed us warmly. Our room was charming, shower s a bit small but plenty of warm water that was much needed after biking along the John Muir Way. This was easy walking distant The Royal Mile.

We have now visited this establishment four or five times and have still found nothing to complain about. Always made welcome and the rooms are always well turned out. Highlight of the stay is Jimmy's excellent cooked breakfasts ! We shall return.

We found Glenalomond House convenient to the Royal Mile and other Edinburgh spots, due to its location on a busy bus route. Too far to walk to most tourist destinations but frequent buses made getting almost anywhere very easy. Rooms were clean and comfortable and breakfasts were tasty and ample with many choices.

I appreciated the warm welcome by the owner who gave advice about buses to use etc. The reproduction furniture is beautiful and sets the mood for romance. Too bad I was travelling alone. Great breakfast especially the waffles. Ensure that you get to the correct bus stop and look for a "Mayfair bus". I did walk to downtown but took... More

Stayed 2 nights in this newly renovated historic house in Mayfield Gardens. Great location to local transportation and 10 minutes walk to restaurants/pubs. The bedrooms are tastefully appointed with period furnishings and linens. Modern attached bath with instant hot water. Wi fi in room works well. Beatiful dining room for breakfast. Great service and gracious hosts make this a restful... More
