Gerald was the most gracious host. Everything. He did was geared toward our comfort and enjoyment. He even contacted the owner of a restaurant where we had an awful experience, unbeknownst to us, and we were offered the chance to come back for a second chance. We will not hesitate to stay with Gerald the next time we visit Edinburgh.

Gerald's Place offers everything a B & B experience should be: Delightful and engaging decor; delicious, home cooked Scottish breakfasts (including haggis); and, most of all, a gem of a host. Gerald is the archetype of what a perfect B & B host should be - warm, accommodating, helpful and caring. The location, on a quiet, Georgian street in Edinburgh's... More

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
