What can I say, we had a wonderful 3 night stay here. Paul and Susan couldn't do enough to ensure we had a great time in Edinburgh, they are some Aussie expats who have fallen in love with Edinburgh. We chose to walk to town (1/2 hour leisurely stroll, felt really safe even after Fringe shows & Tattoo), but Barony... More

It is clear from the moment you meet Paul and Susan that your stay and comfort is their priority. Barony House doesn't feel like a Guest House, more like an extension of your own home, with a warm welcome, delicious breakfasts and a comfy bed - what more could I have asked for?....I'm not sure to be honest. I will... More

I would not hesitate to return to the Barony on my next visit to Edinburgh. From arriving at the door to leaving my wife and I were made most welcome. One overnight for the festival and we felt we were staying with friends. Paul is a mine of info to help visitors. I could go on for ages but suffice... More

Paul and Susan made us feel so welcome. Barony House is absolutely lovely and the breakfast is the best I've ever come across. They even posted back clothes we'd left in the wardrobe! I'd thoroughly recommend to anyone looking to spend some time in Edinburgh.

Hey there guys, yes I have been known to leave clothes behind on holiday myself so posting them back was the least we could do! See you next time! xo Paul, Susan and family More

Another excellent B & B. Paul and Susan are really trying to make this one of THE places to stay in Edinburgh. Very clean and recently redecorated to a very high standard. Rooms are spacious and beds (king size?) are very comfortable (so big I needed a walkie-talkie to speak to the wife). Breakfasts, as mentioned in other reviews, are... More

We stayed at Barony House for four nights in August for the Festival, and really enjoyed our stay. Paul and Susan are very welcoming and friendly hosts. Our room was large and comfortable, with part of it closed off as a separate shower room and WC, and we were provided with tea, coffee, biscuits etc - and a little carafe... More

Thank you so much for your kind review. Your complimentary comments keep us motivated and we very much appreciate them. I wonder where we will all be in 12 months?
