Very warm welcome from Margaret on arrival, room was spotless and very spacious. Hearty breakfast and lovely to chat to David. Bus stops very handy outside to get into the city centre. Would recommend the Gifford to everyone and will definitely stay there in the future should we need to stay in Edinburgh again!

Fantastic B&B. Lovely hosts and fab breakfast. Rooms clean and tidy with very comfy beds. Beautiful views. Short walk from City centre and bus stops just outside. Ideal location if you wanted to visit Holyrood park. Overall we thoroughly recommend.

I spent 3 nights in this beautiful b&b with my girlfriend. You can easily get to the city center by bus (10-15 mins), the breakfest is typically scotish and made with so much pleasure and warmth and the couple keeping this b&b is absolutly friendly and answeres every question with much kindness. My girlfriend and I had a wonderful time... More

Charming period property which is very well maintained. Could not fault the room - very quiet. Friendly hosts who serve an excellent breakfast. WiFi works perfectly in the whole house. Highly recommended, I cannot fault the amenities or the service.

Went to Edinburgh recently to take in the Edinburgh Tattoo and really lucked out with this family run guest house. We stayed for four days and enjoyed great hospitality. Margaret and David went out of their way to make our stay as enjoyable as possible arranging a bus tour of the highlands for us which was absolutely spectacular, great location... More

The owner was very nice and friendly; room is clean and comfortable with TV, though the reception wasn't too good so it breaks quite easily; good breakfast and very quiet. The only thing is it is not that close to city center and you need to walk a bit far to find food when it's late.

Our room was very nice with a lovely view, comfortable beds and a clean - though tiny bathroom. Our hosts were very helpful in getting us taxis and any other information we needed and easily accommodated our early departures with an early breakfast. The B& B is only a few blocks from the start of the pathway up to Arthur's... More
