I can't imagine going to Edinburgh and not staying at Gerald's. As a first time visitor to this wonderful city, Gerald's was the perfect place to stay. Gerald welcomed us as family, yet never was intrusive but always helpful. The accommodations were just right. Near a wonderful park, off the major drag, so there was no noise problem. It was... More

A friend booked me for three nights at Gerald's Place. It was a wonderful experience. Gerald is lovely and welcoming. The room was excellent. Terrific bed and great bathroom set-up. Felt quite private. The house is in the New Town section and the room I stayed in really gives you a sense of how these houses were built. The location... More

Four of us stayed at Gerald's Place in June. I contacted Gerald about booking two rooms and he replied immediately. Not only did he answer my booking questions but he also provided links and other helpful information for our arrival to the city. He added his own personal comments and suggestions about the best way to walk from Waverly to... More

This lovely, quirky place is probably THE place to stay in Edinburgh. We certainly wouldn't consider anywhere else. Lovely room with far, far more than the usual 'little extras'. In the bathroom for example, you don't just get the usual mini soap and shampoo sachet but a cabinet stuffed with absolutely everything you could possibly need. The lovely breakfast consisted...
