This place is a great as all the reviews state. We had one night stay and couldn't fault anything about it. Easy for the city, handy for Haymarket station. Great comfy bedding. Lovely views over to the castle.

There is absolutely nothing negative to say about B + B Edinburgh. We stayed for 3 nights and from the moment we arrived till the moment we left, everything was perfect. Large room (no. 3), bathroom spotlessly clean. Breakfast was delicious with a good choice and all the staff were pleasant and accommodating. When we go on our next break... More

Stayed 2 nights for my birthday. The location is good - we walked from Waverley train station which took around 20 mins. The hotel, in a beautiful Georgian terrace, is a short walk from the west end of Princes Street. We were given a warm welcome by Gustar. Our room was on the top floor and had fantastic views over...

Recently stayed for a rugby international weekend at this fantastic B & B. My wife and I were part of a large group (30+), wives and partners, and everyone of us was delighted at the quality of the accommodation, food and helpfulness of the staff. As stated in other reviews here, the location of the hotel was great, near enough... More

we spent 5 nights in this charming old house in the very heart of the west end, 7 minutes walking distance from the main prince street and 3 minutes from the new tramway stop. the building is elegant and very "victorian", a very high ceiling breakfast lounge, a very pleasant library where we could take a rest and sip a...

We stayed at this lovely B&B for a weekend trip. The staff were lovely and the breakfast scrummy. Minor hiccup with the ordering at breakfast but this was soon overcome. We were upgraded from a large double to a family room (at no extra cost) to make room for the travel cot. The family room we had was huge and... More

We have just returned from a short break in this hotel and can't speak highly enough about it: - friendly staff, although busy had time to chat and nothing was too much trouble - best bed we have slept in for a long time (room lovely and clean and quiet) Can't thank the staff enough and what an elegant hotel...

We stayed over the Halloween holiday and were very impressed. We stayed in the attic room in this boutique hotel, it was small but had everything we needed. It was very clean with an amazing view of the castle. We had a large velux window above our bed which I loved. The bathroom was nice and clean. There was a... More

In the heart of the west end, the hotel is in a great location, about a 5 minute walk from Prince's street. The reception staff were brilliant, very informative and welcoming and even lent us a laptop and ironing board at no extra cost. Perhaps the highlight of the hotel is the cosy library with large comfy sofas and hundreds... More

Booked the hotel for a family overnight trip to Edinburgh due to the need to apply for a visa in person for Russia in person (new fingerprint requirements for a visa application, not great if you live 200 miles from the visa office - but that's another story!!) Customer service when booking was excellent and the family room was very... More
