Spacious and elegant foyer and accommodation - even better than the photos. Very attentive and helpful host. Fantastic breakfast buffet. Very convenient to buses, with restaurants nearby and on route. City within 10 minutes by bus. Can see Arthurs Seat from front room. Will definitely return.

Excellent B&B. Fantastic breakfast with fresh croissants which would make a five star hotel wish they had a patisserie chef half as good. Great location, comfortable and clean room, helpful and friendly manager for whom everything is no problem. I highly recommend this B&B. No complaints at all about this B&B.

Thank you for your review. It was a pleasure to host your recent visit in Edinburgh and to give us a chance to put Susan's cooking to a real test! Most kind of you, we feel renewed motivation :) More

Staying at Barony House, for us, was as much about Paul and Susan as simply a room for the night. We booked one night and stayed two based on the welcoming, friendly and customer focused service. Paul is front of house and has a genuine interest in people and ensuring they get the most out of their trip to Edinburgh... More

Barony House is a lovely place to stay in Edinburgh, I hugely recommend it. The room was clear and bright and the location is very convenient to explore the city, as it is close to several bus stops. The owners are warm and friendly, they are always keen to help their guests and they make everyone feel welcome. My mom... More

We recently stayed for three nights and would recommend Barony House without question. Large, nicely-decorated rooms with very high ceilings, spotlessly clean and quiet. Hosts Paul and Susan were friendly and made us really welcome. Susan's breakfasts - buffet-style - were delicious and with a wide range of things to choose from. Barony House on several bus routes into town... More

The B&B is lovely, comfortable and stands in a very old house (1900), but very well kept. The breakfast is lovely, you can just enjoy it. It is not very far, I'd say 10min. The owners are very young and make you feel at home. Id go chefe again for sure.

overall experience was great... Paul & Susan were very helpful throughout our visit and made us feel very welcome. Scotland was great but the support provided by Paul and Susan on directions, bus routes, walking and locality made it easier for us to see by giving us maps and being available on demand.

Myself and my boyfriend stayed here and it was a nightmare in the morning. The owner would not leave us be while eating breakfast and instead insisted on talking and talking and talking at us. Quite frankly he was harrassing everyone. His attempts at being funny actually only succeeded in being very rude. I am a pharmacist and work in... More

Thank you for your review Tala, I am sincerely hurt to be thought of by you as “most annoying” and “harassing everyone”. On the morning in question I was talking to another couple near you about various topics. We are a young Australian family with a very open, laid back culture and we enjoy engaging in friendly banter however it... More

We recently spent one night at Barony House and had a '5 out of 5'-experience. Located in walking distance to the Royal Mile (even if you might prefer taking one of the multiple bus lines passing by in front of the house ) the B&B offers nice and clean rooms, an opulent breakfast with handmade pastries, (you ought to try...
