Keeping it short. If you want to stay in Edinburgh look nowhere else. Parking on the front and this is where my car stayed for the duration of our stay. Rooms clean and immaculate. Very comfy bed and nice and quiet. We overlooked the rear garden. Easy access to the centre either by bus or walking. Very friendly and the... More

After a last minute decision to visit Edinburgh for the Saturday night I checked all the hotels in Edinburgh centre, most were sold out or overpriced. Decided to try glenalmond house after seeing the good reviews on trip advisor. Really happy I did as the whole stay was enjoyable although not spending a massive time indoors the time we were...

The usual high standard of the rooms service and breakfast didn't disappoint on our second visit. The rooms are of a high standard and all in keeping with the genre of the building with original features adding to the delightful atmosphere. The hosts are as friendly and informative as you want them to be and the breakfast choices are amazing... More

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
