I stayed at Sylvern House for 4 days in September after a hiking tour and when I saw Judy's smiling face and my BEAUTIFUL room I almost cried with joy. I felt at home. Great hostess, wonderful B&B, delicious food (FRESH fruit)- If I am lucky enough to return to Edinburgh I would not want to stay anywhere else!

Chancing upon the Sylvern last year we were charmed by this beautiful house with back garden big enough to hold the FA Cup Final! On arrival for the opening weekend of this years festival we accepted Judy's offer of tea in the newly completed conservatory.(Much appreciated before our assault on the capital.) If good food,comfy cosey rooms and great hospitality... More
