Excellent accommodation at 20 London Street Edinburgh. Warm welcome by owner Gillian and we were able to enjoy the comforts of the large sitting room. The bedroom was spacious and the bed very comfortable. Breakfast was more than plenty. Place was very convenient for visiting the centre of the city and also our daughter's home. Trevor/Anne Hayes

The most comfortable beds....ever. Breakfast.....amazing Do yourself a favour,book a room with Gillian,and it will make your stay in Edinburgh ...Perfect Edinburgh is an "all year round " destination,but visiting the City during the Festival must be up there with anything any City in the world has to offer. I would give 20 London street 6 if I could.

We return to Edinburgh every year for the Fringe Festival. While we often talk about trying a new place to stay, we can't bring ourselves to go anywhere else. The rooms are spacious and extremely comfortable and the breakfast is truly unbeatable. Throw in the elegant public area and the delightful conversations with the host and guests and it's hard...

We have just returned after having a wonderful weekends stay. Our room was the Garden room which was warm,comfortable and spotlessly clean. John was very welcoming on our arrival and nothing was too much trouble. The breakfast was wonderful and the house is stunning. A short uphill walk into the centre is very pleasant and the area has lots of... More

We loved 20 London Street! It is a beautifully decorated traditional house, and John was very kind, and helpful!

We stayed at 20 London Street for Hogmonay and it was a perfect find. Situated off Broughton Street it was a brisk 15 min walk to the town centre, no problem for us but up hill most of the way so possibly not ideal for some. We stayed on the lower ground floor in the Garden Room. It was beautifully... More

John is a great host. The room was at least 3 stars and the breakfast 5. The residence is a bit of a walk from the tourist center (15-20 minutes). Be prepared for the hills you may meet along the way!

Our new favourite B&B: that's how my wife and I would describe our latest discovery! Twenty London Street is an elegant townhouse property in Edinburgh's gracious Georgian New Town which the owner operates as a B&B. It's very discreet - no signage, apart from her name on the door. But it's very conveniently located for the city's wealth of historic... More

We stayed with Gillian at 20 London Street for 5 days during the Edinburgh festival and were very happy with the place. The actual house is stunning with lovely original features and large rooms. The bedroom we had (garden room) had a super comfy bed and everything you would expect from a high quality B&B - all nice and modern... More
