Myself and my partner stayed here in November 2014, we had friends coming over from America and booked this place extremely last minute. This was without a doubt the best decision we ever had. This beautiful building is located a short bus drive away from the city centre (we also walked it in about 30 minutes but there are bus... More

Hosting with passion and an attention to detail Paul and Susan treat you as family and provide excellent service and information to Edinburgh. Their breakfast service is second to none! Susan is a master in the kitchen, especially with her French pastries. The rooms are beautiful,... More

What an awesome stay! First and foremost, the lovely Australian couple that have recently taken this property over are such welcoming and kind people. They really went out of their way to make sure that everything was fine - that we knew how to get around, and made us feel like if we had any problems, we could get a... More

A great find in an out of town location, easy to get to and from town on one of the many frequent buses, takes about 10 minutes or walking about 25 minutes. The hosts Paul and Susan have only operated the B & B since October 2014 following their move from Australia and have taken on the role excellently. John... More

We've had a super weekend at Barony House and met the new proprietors Paul and Susan who made us feel so welcome. The room was spacious, very clean and well presented. Breakfast was great, lots of choice including the freshly made pastries. Location couldn't be faulted and have already rebooked again for the summer.

We've stayed at Barony House for a couple of nights in december 2014. The hosts were very welcoming and always ready to offer advice on anything we liked to know about Edinburgh (attractions, transportation, ...). Barony House is outside of the center but can easily be reached by several busses. Our room was very clean and tidy but they had... More
