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

I stayed at Glendale House in July 2002, with my mom and another mother, daughter pair. Here it is nearly 12 years later and I fondly remember what a nice stay we had. The house is very nice and Duncan made a wonderful breakfast and was very helpful in figuring out where we should go and what to see. The... 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.

Hello Paula & Steve Our terms and conditions are clearly stated on the booking form which are standard within the industry and I have to say not in fine print ! .Your reservation was for two nights over a busy weekend , which you cancelled due to a flight cancellation, a few days before your arrival, suffice to say we...

This was our first lodging during our recent vacation to Scotland, and Glendale house was a pleasant introduction to this beautiful country and to Edinburgh. The room was clean and well furnished, and the bed was comfortable. I slept soundly and was not disturbed by noise from any of the neighbors. The garden was very lovely, a tribute to Duncan’s...

We spent one very pleasant night at Glendale. It is beautiful house and well furnished. I liked the little touches like the thistles on the tables. Great breakfast. Situated right at Cameron Toll it was convenient and easily accessible with good secure parking. Proprietors were friendly and helpful. Only downside was the poor WiFi connection.

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.
