This is a really lovely traditional guest house. We were given the choice of two rooms - both were large - we chose the one facing the road but it was lovely and quiet. Breakfast was cooked by Carolyn as we chatted in the kitchen - she is the perfect hostess and we were made very very welcome. Thank you.

Excellent, experienced, accommodating hostess! Carolyn is the reason for so many rave reviews. The location was convenient for us and we enjoyed two visits to the Modern Two at the Scottish National Gallery across the street. This is a lovely residential neighborhood within a 10 to 15 minute walk of City Centre. Although this is not a business or food... More

This is a really lovely traditional guest house. It is in a beautiful, quiet area, the rooms are spotlessly clean, the beds are comfortable with quality bedding for a perfect night's sleep. I've stayed in each of the rooms and would recommend asking for the double room overlooking the garden as it is a lovely garden and has a nice... More

She was so oblidging at the time, holding my luggage all day, the day I left and letting me come home to eat and shower early... More

Caroline Crabbie is so good as making her guests feel at home. We stayed there last year as well and would return again when we can. Rooms are large and comfy. Slept like a baby our four nites there. Little far to walk for us, but taxi service is quick. She is quite gregarious and will chat on whatever you... More

I stayed for 4 nights at Carolyn's excellent B&B. The location was excellent. The breakfasts in the morning were superb and set you right for the day. Overall a very enjoyable stay and I hope to visit again. Highly recommended

The bed and breakfast is quite small and cozy, and exactly the way you imagine a BnB to be like. The rooms are really charming, spacious and clean, they make you feel a lot more at home than ordinary hotel rooms. For breakfast you get to choose between cereal and fry up made by Carolyn. The only thing I can... More

The rooms were spacious and comfortable. Breakfasts were wonderful, made even better by Carolyn's company. Carolyn offered advice and tips that improved each day's plan and added value to our experiences. The location was convenient, a short walk to the city center. I hope to return and look forward to staying here again.

Really great stay at a lovely B&B. We had cycles which Carolyn was very happy to accommodate on her terrace. Beautiful spacious light room with ensuite. Very comfortable stay, everything we needed to enjoy the time spent there, plus her lovely lurchers. Delicious breakfasts too.
