Great hospitality, wonderful place to stay! Gerald gave us lots of useful advice, and there were lots of great extras! The beds are extremely comfortable, and the breakfast amazing. I would happily return, and highly recommend Geralds Place.

This was our second stay at Gerald's Place and our return was not because Gerald, our host, and Gerald, my husband, share a first name. We are lovers of Edinburgh, and Gerald, our host, shared his enthusiasm for his adopted city with us. As walking visitors to Edinburgh, we found the location in the New Town near the City Centre...

The measure of a great B&B, to me, is the host, and Gerald is a perfect host! His home is warm and inviting, and the pictures covering his walls reflect not only his love of art, but also his love of his family, which to me says a lot about a person. Gerald obviously loves his city and country as... More

Gerald's Place has a great location in the New Town, ideal for George/Princes St. and close to the National Portrait Gallery, but really shines in its friendliness and attention to detail. Comfortable rooms, interesting art on the walls, great breakfast and even whisky alongside the usual tea and coffee made for a retreat from busy days in the city. We... More

The accommodations at Gerald's Place were pleasant and comfortable. The bed was large enough for my tall husband, storage was ample, and our room was even equipped with a small refrigerator.
