We have just enjoyed a most-memorable stay at Gerald's, which we used as a base for a 5-day break in Edinburgh. Just a few minutes' walk from Princes Street, in a peaceful setting, it couldn't be better located for seeing everything that this great city has to offer. Gerald was the consummate host throughout and we felt very much at... More

As the other reviews stated, Gerald is an excellent host and the B & B is quirky, comfortable and clean. The uncooked element of the breakfast was great but the bacon was cremated and the sausage undercooked, making both inedible. Sorry Gerald!

Our trip to Edinburgh to meet up with student daughter was made absolutely delightful by Gerald's hospitality. Beautiful surroundings with fascinating art works throughout; exceptional level of comfort in bedroom, bathroom and catering; a rare concern from our host to make sure we avail ourselves of the very best Edinburgh has to offer; and a fantastic central location.

Our stay at Gerald's was the highlight of our trip to Scotland. Every detail made us feel pampered and welcomed. Quite often we would announce "we're home!" as we entered the front door.

From the first welcome hug to the final goodbye hug this is the place to stay. A warm, welcome place, exceptional breakfast, clean wonderful rooms, and anything you could possibly want. Don't go anywhere else in Edinburg. None can compare to Gerald's Place.

Gerald's Place is an excellent choice for B&B in Edinburgh. Gerald is located 5-10 minutes' walk from the center of town and the train station, in a nice neighborhood, with nearby restaurants, shops, and attractions. The bed was comfortable, the bathroom was large and well-stocked, and everything was spotless. Gerald himself is a kind, interesting, and thoughtful host, who cooks... More
