The overall impression was spotlessly clean and elegant surroundings. Having to choose your breakfast the night before seemed at bit OTT, however this resulted in... More

My dad and I stayed at Barony House for 2 nights during the Edinburgh Fringe and found it excellent value for money. We stayed in a pleasant twin ensuite room, with very comfy beds, & complimentary sherry. The cooked breakfasts were lovely, with good vegetarian options. The B&B is also well located; approximately a 25 minute walk from the city... More

Barony House is ideally situated for several bus routes into both the Old and New Towns - the £3,.50 day ticket is excellent value and includes the recently introduced tram. This well appointed guest house forms part of a Victorian terrace and has many of the original features. Breakfast is... More

Barony House BnB in Newington, Edinburgh, turned out to be the best surprise of our visit last week. Easily approachable with frequent buses from the Town Centre, Barony has a limited number of en-suite rooms and advance booking is necessary. Our first floor room overlooking the lawn, was spotlessly maintained, quiet and carpeted for a cozy stay. Barony's breakfasts are... More

My husband and I have just returned from a super weekend break in Edinburgh and made a good choice in staying at Barony House. Our room was spacious, warm, tastefully decorated and very clean. We overlooked the rear garden which was such a joy, with various shrubs bursting with colour. We enjoyed a full cooked Scottish breakfast, porridge, toast, yoghurt... More
