I was in Edinburgh overnight on business. I was a bit surprised not to have an en suite bathroom but it was no big deal since I was only staying for one night. The breakfast in the morning was probably one of the best I've ever had. Scrambled eggs and salmon. Perfectly cooked!!

Hi Marjorie We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay The room you reserved is the only room that's not en-suite and I have now changed the room description to make this point much clearer . I can understand why you may have thought private bathroom implied en-suite and I apologise for that ! Hope you have now caught up... More

Very impressed by our stay at Glendale House. Duncan and Elaine are very friendly and informative. The room was comfortable, clean and quiet. Good selection available at breakfast however just opted for the porridge. Highly recommend.

We stayed whilst visiting Edinburgh University - very very friendly hosts in a lovely old house full of character. Superb breakfast room and lovely breakfast with so much choice and everyone so pleasant. Location is great - round corner from bus route , £1.50 to go anywhere but easy 30 minute walk into centre too. Edinburgh is stunning and would... More

This is the 3rd time I have stayed with Duncan & Elaine over a span of more than 10 years, and I would not even think about staying anywhere else when I visit Edinburgh. Glendale House is very comfortable and you get a great breakfast. Duncan & Elaine are so welcoming. By now I feel we are old friends. My... More

My wife and I recently visited at the start of Fringe Festival for an 8 day honeymoon in early August. We were immediately impressed by the quality of the house and our room in particular. We were also taken back by how courteous, informative, and welcoming our hosts - Duncan and Elaine were. They are not only stewards of their... More

We stayed at Glendale House for a week while visiting the King's Buildings at the University. It is a lovely house with nicely renovated interior. Daily breakfasts were delicious. Eileen and Duncan, the proprietors, were charming. They helped us to arrange tours and provided directions. The house is just one block from the main bus line to downtown and walking... More

Duncan and Elaine are wonderful hosts and serve a great breakfast. The Glendale House is lovely and the roses in the garden are beautiful and some are quite fragrant. Although the "Lomond" room we stayed in was small. It had all we needed. I do wish the mattress was more comfortable as well, but it should be noted I am... More

We too wish room 'Lomond' was a little larger, however being a Victorian home we are restrained by the size of some of the rooms, . All our mattresses are quality pocket sprung mattresses, which always have a positive feedback , however this in its self may not suit everyone ! We appreciate your feedback and as always look forward... More

I was booked into the Glendale by the University of Edinburgh as I had a meeting at King's Buildings. The location is fabulous for the university (no more than 10 minute walk away) and it is a lovely, cosy environment. Duncan and Elaine weren't in when I arrived but they left my keys and directions to room etc for me.... More

Easy access to Royal Mile by bus. Rooms and breakfast were generous. Can't say the same for their cancellation policy. Because of a flight delay we had to cut short our stay in Edinburgh by one day, but still had to pay full cost of original reservation.
