My husband and I were visiting our daughter who is at Uni in Edinburgh and lives in the Marchment area. We chose The Town House to be close to her (a short and beautiful walk through the park) and also easily accessible to the city. Our hosts were both wonderful, very friendly and helpful without being intrusive (our daughter was... More

After a 7 hour drive, parking 5 minutes away we received no help with the bags. We got a barrage of information from Roger without even being able to sign in or see our room. Sarcastic comments about not being able to take in information followed. I have a cognitive problem and he was insulting, it wasn’t a good start.... More

Great hospitality, wonderful room, nice breakfast and a quiet location. The ideal location to relax after a touring the city of Edinburgh and well worth to stay more than 3 nights.Train, bus and tram station Haymarket is only 10 Minutes to walk away.

We stayed two nights in two rooms at the Town House in Edinburgh, Scotland on our recent trip to the U.K. We had two rooms that were well appointed and comfortable. Susan Virtue, the proprietor, greeted us warmly and showed us to our rooms and explained how the shower functioned and answered other questions for us. Breakfast was in the... More

Were in Edinburgh overnight to visit a friend, and found this guest house which was close by. The owner was a lovely lady, very helpful. Beautiful, elegant room, which was spotless. Lovely breakfast the following morning, after being woken up to the smell of toast and coffee. Lots of parking available too! What a lovely short stay!

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.
