My wife and I stayed with David while we were up in Edinburgh at a christening. he is the most charming host and made us very wlecome. We stayed in room 10 at the back of the house on the top floor and, although the en suite was a bit on the cosy side the room was clean and tidy.

My Partner and I stayed here for 4 nights in April. We found the service from the owner (David) to be excellent. The breakfasts were delicious! I would recommend the traditional Scottish brekkie, however the smoked haddock and poached egg was beautiful. The rooms were certainly not luxurious but small and comfortable, however could have been more comfortable with a... More

Only had one night in Edinburgh and this hotel was booked through Easy-Jet website with airline tickets. More like a B and B than a hotel. That just seems to be the way owner David runs the place – very personally. It works well. Hotel is small and on a reasonably busy corner. Greeted warmly by Ian and directed into... More

The A Haven is a beautiful place. The breakfasts were wonderful. The host was the best, though- knowledgeable , great recommendations for dining, what to see, and how to get there.

David and his staff provide great service and a warm welcoming atmosphere. My friends and I discovered the hotel several years ago and stay here at least once a year. In May 2009 at the end of my Coast & Castles cycle trip I phoned asking for a room completely unaware of he fact that it was the day of... More

This B&B was everything we needed on a short break to Edinburgh- we were made to feel very welcome by owner David, who was always on hand to answer questions and give recommendations, or just have a chat! The rooms were clean and quiet, breakfasts were generous and tasty (I can recommend the haddock and poached eggs!) Secure car parking... More

The genial host set a relaxed tone from the moment the phonecall to book was made. The building is a old, characterful and nicely furnished and still retains a cosy feel. Great cooked Breakfast too.

... Then David at A-Haven would be the elite. Gold is the understatement of understatements. His welcoming, warm, bubbly and friendly nature is the unique offering of the A-Haven Townhouse. Nothing was too much trouble. The fact that it was Valentine's day and he'd left a box of m&s chocolates left on the bed summed the guy up; no stone... More

I couldn't be more positive about the friendly service we received from David, the owner of this great B&B not far from the centre of Edinburgh. He was always on hand with a smile and a recommendation for a restaurant or activity, not to mention the immense "Hearty Highland" breakfasts which kept us going pretty much all day. The rooms...

There really isn't much to say about this B&B other than it was fab. David the owner is unbelievably helpful and personable. There are not many establishments like this where the service is briiliant and the price fantastic. Everything that you could hope for in a B&B, clean, spacious rooms, wonderful hosts, private parking and a breakfast that will kick... More
