The room was very clean, no noise from the outside and the breakfast was marvelous! Paul is very chatty and gave us great tips of the best places to go... More

I am a bit late writing this review but we stayed in December for a weekend and everything from start to finish was perfect. Lots of great information from paul and beautiful breakfast from his wife susan. The room we stayed in had a lovely view of the garden. We are coming back same time next year

This was our second time in Barony House, after having stayed there in May 2015. We were there to celebrate Hogmanay. Again: perfectly clean rooms, a warm welcome by Paul and Susan, wonderful breakfast (and an excellent brunch on New Year's Day). The owners settled in Edinburgh quickly and we got some great tips for local restaurants, pubs and things... More

We have stayed in B and Bs all over the world and this was by far my favorite. Spending the holidays away from home we were so pleased to see the beautiful Christmas decorations. Paul was so helpful and polite! He waited for us at check in and our room was clean, comfortable with beautiful Victorian decorations. We had sherry... More

Overall a fantastic stay, from a delicious breakfast, a charming host (a shock for an australian ha ha lol), nearby places to eat, to a superb location (not far to city centre via bus). Fully recommended. AAA+++

Me and my partner stayed at Barony House at the beginning of December and could not have been treated to a warmer welcome from the owner, Paul. Because it was my birthday, he gave us a very cheap upgrade to a better room and laid on some sherry for us to toast my old age with. He also gave us... More

My wife and I travelled to edinburgh for our first year anniversary and I wanted to stay in a place that was calm, peaceful, cheerful yet close to the city center. Barony House ended up being the highlight of our trip. The couple running the place are very nice and caring. The food(breakfast) was home cooked and amazing. Must visit!.... More

So delighted to discover the fabulous Barony House. I received a warm welcome from Paul, who should be on commission from the tourist board! A beautiful, cosy house that is well serviced by local buses. Loved the breakfast - lots of healthy options. Unfortunately, I missed it on my last morning due to an early flight. However, I received a... More
