We stayed here and absolutely loved it. The family room easily accommodates 5 and was perfectly located just outside the heart of Edinburgh in a beautiful big historic home in theWest End. The front desk answered all our questions and were incredibly friendly. Breakfast was also very good and was made to order very promptly. It may be more of... More

B+B Edinburgh is much more like a boutique hotel than a B&B. It's priced like a B&B, rooms are like a B&B but when you walk in, it has a wow-factor like no other B&B I've seen. It was formerly the private residence of the founder of the Scotsman newspaper, so you are staying in an oak-paneled mansion with common... More

The B & B Edinburgh is a classic Georgian townhouse located 10 minutes walk from the old town. It is a small boutique hotel rather than a classic B & B but maintains the charm of the traditional B & B. There is half a flight of steps from street to lobby but there is a small elevator to access... More

We just spent 3 nights at the B+B Edinburgh and had a wonderful stay! The rooms were very clean and all were ready on-time (we had 4 rooms for our group). The staff were very helpful and friendly. The hotel is in a central walking location to restaurants, bars, shopping, and major sites. Also, being in the middle of the... More

B+B Edinburgh has a good location, with walking distance to the city center. Well adapted to a family with small children. and the price is affordable. The room is spacious and has a great view on the city. we appreciated our stay there and the fact we could walk from the hotel to the restaurants or to the city center.

Chose this hotel for a one night getaway in Edinburgh. We were positively surprised given the decent price. On arrival the staff were very helpful and welcoming leading us to our room. When told our room was in the basement level, we were initially a bit wary, however the room was a pleasant surprise, having a nice view and full... More

This is the second time I have stayed here and it's a great place. The reception area is spacious and ornate and the staff came to help us at the door with our luggage. Our room was very nice. I'd booked through booking.com and the message hadn't got through to the hotel that we required a travel cot however this... More

We stayed 3 nights at this B&B in August. Room was large and very neat. My wife was very happy that the room had a soaking tub. The breakfast was fresh cooked and consisted of either eggs (cooked your way), meat, fresh cut fruit, yogurt and breads. Very nice. The staff were very accommodating. This is a beautiful property on... More

We stayed here in May with extended family and children, we reserved two family rooms which were both nicely sized. The B+B hotel had very nice accommodations at good price. It also within a semi-reasonable walking distance of major attractions for most able bodied adults. If you have children consider getting a cab, which is not very costly in relationship... More
