Clean, elegant, 10-15 minutes away from city center (walking), comfortable bed, quiet and great service! Susan, the owner, is really nice and she will do everything to make you feel like home. On the welcome folder in your room you will find every emergency number you could use if you require it. Breakfast is amazing! Rated as a 4 star... More

Great stay at The Town House with all the family (we had 4 out of 5 rooms). We had all flown in from different parts of world, arriving at different times, for a friends wedding and really could not have asked for more. They really went out of their way to help us and make us feel at home with... More

We stayed for two nights when visiting our student daughter who has just moved nearby. The room was very comfortable, well furnished and clean. Breakfast was delicious and the choice was good. The stay here was just as good as city centre hotels we have stayed in previously and only cost half as much. We will definitely stay here again.

This has to be one of the best guest houses in Edinburgh. Its set in a former Manse for the church next door and is full of Victorian charm and character lovingly restored by the current owners, Susan and Robert. The room we stayed in was luxurious and had lovely original features but also the latest mod cons. The en-suite... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Town House: a warm welcome, a comfortable room and a good breakfast. An excellent location, not far from the Usher Hall and The Playhouse Theatre. We shall be looking forward to returning when we are next in Edinburgh.

We spent 4 days at The Town House at the beginning of our vacation. When we first arrived it was after traveling for almost 24 hours straight. We couldn't have received a warmer welcome from Susan and her husband, Robert. Robert even carried our cases up both flights of stairs for us! Our room was ready, which was good because... More

I stayed here before and after a group tour and enjoyed it both times, even though my stay was brief. Comfortable, quiet room, good breakfast, convenient location, and friendly hosts. Also, it was fun watching them learn how to use a credit card machine!

It's not easy to find reasonably priced accommodation in Edinburgh. The Town House is the solution between noisy hostels and pricey hotels. A good 30 minutes on foot from the centre, yet with a bus stop right opposite the building, it is located on a quiet street along many b&b. The house is old, so be prepared for a lot... More

Thrilled with our choice of B&B. Charming, friendly, helpful and informative hosts, Susan and Robert. All their suggestions were spot on. Wonderful breakfasts. Comfortable, clean, quiet but darkish room up 2 steep flights of stairs - only drawback for the "elderly". Good, on site car parking - a bonus for this busy city. City centre within easy walking distance, using... More
