This is no 4 star luxury hotel with a grand lobby and yes there are alot of stairs but if you want a nice clean room and great shower close to the castle and other attractions this place fits the bill. The Inn keeper was very helpful on the area and even gave us a fan for our room. I... More

The best thing about this guest house is the location - easy walk to castle. Receptionist was great and very helpful in carrying bags up the two long flights of stairs. Bedrooms and shower rooms are very small. Can't really call this a B&B as there is no restaurant on the premises, you can buy a voucher for breakfast at... More

We had a very lovely stay in the Townhouse and the owner was very friendly and helpful. Bringing our bags early in the morning was no problem, even leave it till our flight went wasn't, too. It's very central in Edinburgh in the New Town, Old Town is only a 10-minute walk away!

Stayed here while attending an author event in Edinburgh. Many others had booked places like the george and paid a fortune and were really disappointed however we paid a reasonable price and stayed here.. The location was brilliant just a block from princess street, the guy on reception was lovely and helpful. The rooms were modern and good size for... More

Lovely owner who helped out with all my needs. Townhouse was opposite an excellent Thai restaurant and next to a great bar for evening entertainment. Would have loved a bath....shower wasn't great. Loads of stairs like a lot of places in Edinburgh. I enjoyed my stay.

I liked having everything you needed within walking distance. The host was extremely helpful and considerate. The five flights of steps and the sparse amenities would make me rethink a return visit. Not a great spot for the elderly or handicapped.

This is a very ideal accommodation. The location is great, staff was nice and helpful and the room I lived was neat with excellent design. It made me want to stay longer at that room. The price was acceptable as well.

A warm, friendly and helpful welcome awaits you at the Edinburgh Townhouse. A great location for shopping and all attractions.. If you can't do steps then this isn't the place for you as there are rather a lot of them. Although breakfast was a short walk away it was worth it. There was a good selection of food and plenty...

The Edinburgh Townhouse is in a great location, close to many attractions. The manager was very enthusiastic and helpful. I had a single room next to the main entrance and facing the street so it can be a bit noisy, but I'm not a light sleeper so it was fine for me. The room was comfortable with all essential amenities,... More
