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

We enjoyed our stay with Fiona and Jimmy in their beautifully decorated house. Breakfast was scrumptious! The center of Edinburgh is within walking distance but the bus stop is just outside the house if necessary. We came by car and the address is easy to find. am already planning my next stay with the lovely couple!

A chance find (though we did check on Trip Advisor), a great B&B close-ish to the centre of town. A twenty five minute walk or a couple of minute by bus from just outside the house. We enjoyed just about all the options on the breakfast menu and they were all good, even if you did have to choose the... More

The property's website and Rick Steves' recommendation easily convinced our travel party of four that the Glenalmond House should be our Edinburgh headquarters for five nights. Upon meeting our hosts, Fiona and Jimmy, we knew we had made the right the decision. We were welcomed at 11 AM from the airport and were surprised to find that our rooms were... More
