We only booked a few days before our visit to Edinburgh but could not have done better. Duncan and Elaine did us proud and made us feel at home the minute we stepped through the door. The off road secure parking area was a bonus as it meant we could use the many buses which stopped a couple of minutes... More

at the Glendale House. A science dept. at the nearby University of Ediburgh arranged our stay. We thought it was a brilliant choice. Elaine and Duncan greet you personally, as if they had been waiting for you to arrive and were so pleased to see you. They were helpful and so accommodating. We left our luggage there during the day... More

This is a really nice B&B very clean and well appointed house, great breakfast, off road secure parking, just far enough outside the city centre to make it be conveniently located for all that Edinburgh has to offer. Only stayed one night wish it had been longer.

My husband and I stayed here for a total of 4 nights this month on our 2 week vacation in Scotland. Duncan and Elaine were wonderful hosts! We arrived from the airport much earlier than anticipated, but they greeted us warmly and immediately took us to our room. Everything was lovely in the rooms we stayed in - one room... More

Stayed here with 2 friends in May 2009. -All ladies in our 50's. One of my friends had been a returning guest for several years when she studied at the University, and insisted on all of us staying here. A good choice!! Lovely breakfast, nice hosts : Duncan loved his roses and I was pleased to join in the "rose"-conversation.... More

This is an impressive historic house, beautifully hand restored by the current owners. Rooms are large and well appointed. Mattress a little soft for my liking. Breakfast is exceptional and the hosts are very friendly and engaging people. The house is on outskirts of Edinburgh only a minute to the bus route, making travel into the city centre very convenient.

Glendale House was our choice for 2 stays in July. The start of a Scotland trip and the end. We chose the right place. People seem to always come back to Glendale House. Very popular with the University. More PhD's and physicists at breakfast. Short and long term. Close to the University and easy access to the heart of Edinburgh.... More

A very clean and well kept B&B in a traditional Scottish residence, very professional with a familiar touch. Duncan and Elaine are just exceptional friendly and pay attention to any single detail, they prepare a fantastic Scottish breakfast and you eat as much as you like. We left Edinburgh and Scotland with the sensation we will go back some day... More
