This is a very clean and comfortable guest house, with a very accommodating host. I only stayed one night but could happily have stayed for more. The room I had was at the rear of the hotel so it was quiet, and the bed was wonderfully comfortable so I got a good nights sleep. The bedding and towels were spotless... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and found it to be a very good guest house. It is convenient for the city with regular buses passing the house. Jim (the owner) was very genial and helpful. The room was well appointed with all the amenities you would expect. Breakfast was very good and plentiful. If you like dogs, Jim's dog,... More

I stayed at BrigO'Doon guest house whilst attending a seminar in Edinburgh for 4 days. It was quick easy to access New Town area and the City Centre, and a pleasant quiet location to stay. The beds were comfortable and the traditional aspect of the building made it very welcoming and cosy. It also provided every modern convenience such as... More

We stayed for 2 days at the Brig O'Doon Guest House. A bus stop is in front of the Guest House so one can conveniently get to sites within the city . It took us only a few minutes to get to the Royal Mile where we then walked to the Edinburgh Castle. Jim, the owner of Brig O'Doon, was... More

The owner, Jim, is friendly, helpful and accommodating. He quickly got us started on getting around the city, then stayed out of the way until we needed him again. Our particular room and bathroom were spacious for a B and B and the room had a nice view of the city. Two buses run--one just outside the front door, and... More

We stayed at this B & B for three nights in March 2011. The rooms were very nice. It was affordable. And best of all the bus service stopped right outside the front door. It was just a 10 minute bus ride to the royal mile. Breakfast was perfect for the price. The owners were always friendly and available. I... More

We stayed here for two nights in mid-August 2006. The price was £90 per night (breakfast included), which was a bit steep, but we were in Edinburgh during the festival, so inexpensive accommodations were difficult (if not impossible) to come by. We also booked the room only a couple weeks before we arrived, so we considered ourselves lucky to find... More
