Spent 3 nights here last week. Conveniently situated a short walk from Princes Street so central for site seeing Edinburgh. David Ingram is a congenial host, and a retired antiques dealer, so the property possesses lots of interesting items that David is willing to tell you about. Breakfast is served in the lovely front room, and the food is excellent.... More

As a solo female traveler in Edinburgh, I felt safe and comfortable walking to/from Ingrams to Waverley Station. Altogether, I spent three nights at this B&B in early September and thoroughly enjoyed my stay. The rooms are attractive, spacious, and clean. I highly recommend having David’s lamb & mint sausages for breakfast! Near shopping, the railway station, a Starbucks, and... More

This B&B was particularly not impressive. We stayed I found the host snobby and not accommodating to our needs. We stayed in a twin room in the basement of the house. The sitting chair was covered in white cat hair. There was no warning on their website that there were pets. I found the room to be quite noisy from... More

Visited this guest house for 3 nights from 30th December for new year! Me and a friend stayed in the 'green room' and it was just perfect! The room was very spacious and comfortable and immaculately clean. The hosts David and Theresa couldn't do enough for us, so hospitable! Will definitely return and hoping to do so for next new...

A lovely B and B in a beautiful Edinburgh Georgian House just full of character. Very hospitable and the breakfast was just excellent. In a perfect location for exploring the City. Would definitely return.

Lovely old house close to every place a visitor would want to see and shop at. Easy to get to Waverly Station from the airport. But not quite as easy to get to the house itself because cross streets in this part of town can be only 1 block before the name changes but that doesn't matter once you get... More

David welcomed us with a tour of the house and a good map of Edinburgh. The house is about 200 years old, I believe, and full of antiques- really neat atmosphere. Our room was very comfortable and clean and we had our own bathroom. The Ingrams were also very kind to allow me to use their laundry facilities- a HUGE... More

We stayed with David and Theresa over the weekend of 7th to 10th June, 2013. We were in Edinburgh to take part in the MoonWalk, which meant that we would walk all night on the Saturday, but would arrive back at the B&B early in the morning. David arranged breakfast to suit us, we had a lovely hot bath and... More

On arrival we were greeted like old friends by the inimitable David Ingram, proprietor. He showed us around the dining area and to our room before inviting us to breakfast the following morning at 8:30am at which we were to expect his famous scrambled eggs and custom ordered lamb sausages. The house is within 5 minutes walking distance to Princes... More

I came across this place when I was looking for a similar B&B on the same street (no longer in operation) in 2004. I enjoyed my stay so much I returned for subsequent visits -- four times in the last 9 years. Located in the "New Town" on a lovely quiet street David and Theresa are delightful hosts.

Staying in New Town

Neighborhood Profile
New Town
Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town, until after dark when strappy dresses come out to play. This is the city’s central business district with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric squares, and self-important statues. But it’s also a very wanderable neighborhood, with a healthy bustle at almost any time of day and fine people-watching in places like St Andrew's Square which fills with picnickers around lunch. You’ll also find a series of cheerful basement bistros on Hanover Street, while dark Rose Street has something of the feel of an undiscovered back alley and is chock-full of characterful pubs and small independent shops.
