Gerald helped us settle in to Edinburgh after our flight from the US. He got us into restaurants with a personal call. He made amazing to-order breakfasts. He felt like a dear friend after a very short time. We loved Edinburgh and especially liked staying in the New Town. It is so convenient but less touristy and is very beautiful.... More

Superb attention to detail and welcoming hospitality. We were made to feel very at home and enjoyed staying at Gerald's Place enormously. It is also very well situated to get into the city. I would definitely return. SJ

We spent an absolutely wonderful week with Gerald at his lovely B&B. We were greeted with a warm hug and the warmth continued throughout our stay. Gerald is one of those people you could spend hours talking with. Every morning there was a delicious home made breakfast. The place was spotless, thank you Marie! And the bed was so comfy,... More

I stayed for two nights in Edinburgh at Gerald's Place during the festival last month. It was my first time in Edinburgh and I cannot imagine a more relaxing place to stay. The B+B is in a beautiful Georgian townhouse and has a great central location so we could walk everywhere we went for the festival. The room and ensuite... More

Staying at Gerald's Place is always a great pleasure. Right in the centre of Edinburgh, five minutes walk from Princes St, his B&B is comfy, cozy, clean and a perfect place to crash after a day out at the Edinburgh Festival. His breakfasts are legendary and he is a wonderful host, always ready with local knowledge and a smile. I... More

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
