Duncan and Elaine are very warm people that make you feel at home immediately. The rooms are very pretty and clean. Each time i visit Edinburgh for business or just a visit I make sure to come back there.

Good value place to stay, excellent cooked breakfast, close to bus routes into city centre. Another good stay at Glendale House. Room has flat screen TV, very clean, had room at the back, very quiet. Given how cold it was outside - snow , windchill, room was well heated and warm.

Having stayed here several times a few years ago, en route to Skye, this was a first visit after a break of almost five years. Hosts Duncan and Elaine were as charming and hospitable as ever, the room beautiful, comfortable and well appointed and breakfast substantial and delicious. We felt more like old friends than customers. Glendale House is well... More

Our room was clean, comfortable, and spacious. The house is beautiful, and the hosts are warm and friendly. The parking was super convenient, and rare! This was our first stop in Scotland, and I didn't realize parking was such a premium. The private gated parking lot at Glendale is not the norm. The breakfast was delicious and filling. We didn't...

Our first visit to Edinburgh was made more comfortable by staying at the Glendale House. The accommodations are clean, cozy and homey. It was peaceful sleeping at the end of a busy day of sight seeing. It is a beautiful Georgian style home with wonderful character. Elaine and Duncan are warm and friendly and make you feel right at home.... More

Wonderful accommodations and great hospitality. Duncan was a joy to talk with. We did think it was going to be closer to town, but the bus system is quite convenient. Ondine's Restaurant is highly recommended.

This B&B was perfect, the rooms were large, the bed was comfortable, the shower was hot (even if it was a little smaller than we are used to). The Host were great and easy to talk to, the food was excellent. The first time we tried to find it it was a little difficult but once we knew where we... More

We stayed here for some work at Univ of Edinburgh which is a nice easy stroll down the street. Can walk to Royal Mile or Arthur's Seat in 25 minutes and the bus is a snap. Duncan served up breakfast along with a side of wit, overall a great place!

We spent three nights at Glendale House in early May as part of our vacation around Scotland. Glendale House is a 30-40min walk from the city centre, right across from the Cameron Toll Shopping Centre. While it's away from the busy centre, there are still several good restaurants within a 10-15min walk. Our room, Leven, was a good size for... More

A lovely Edinburgh house beautifully decorated in the Scottish style. Parking is off road through wrought iron gates at the side of the house. Our en suite room was at the top of the house - lots of stairs! - but was comfortable, clean and quiet. The breakfasts! What can I say? Superb in every respect. The house is handily... More
