We were here all the family, 2 adults and 2 kids, for 4 days. The room was comfortable and the breakfast excellent. We never took a bus from the B&B to any local attractions and we were with 2 kids! We walked every day to the centre of Edinburgh and we walked even to the Royal Yacht Britannia. Very good... More

Pilrig Street is an ideal location, as there are excellent bus routes close by, shops in a walking distance as well as pubs and restaurants. Marc is a pleasant and well-informed host, who organized wonderful babysitters for our little girl! He was also thoughtful and arranged some toys and children´s books in the breakfast room. He also gave some sound... More

First of all, we arrived really late and Marc waited for us. The room was wonderful. Very comfortable and spacious. Breakfast was delicious and gave us enough strength for the whole day. This place is located, not in the middle of all the tourist center, away from all the noise and what gives you the opportunity to get to know... More

We went there for 2 ngihts, the room was spacious and the bathroom was really big. The breakfast was great as well. It was about 25 minutes walking distance from the centre of Edinburgh. From the window we saw the main road, but it was a bit noisy, and also during the night we heard the sirens of the ambulances... More

My sister and I came to Edinburgh for my 31st birthday and we stayed here, choosing this guesthouse from the whole Edinburgh list. We had a lovely warm welcome and even got a helping hand up the stairs with my far-to-heavy-for-just-a-few-days suitcase. Room was lovely, comfy beds (not too soft, perfect for my bad back!!), lovely décor, fantastic shower. Breakfast... More

One of the nicest B and B you will find. Walking distance to train or easy taxi/bus (with your luggage you may want to take a taxi). Comfortable, quiet, clean, spacious, beautifully decorated. Breakfast was wonderful. Bed and bedding very comfortable. Wi-fi available. Very helpful hosts. Reasonably priced. Restaurants in walking distance. A great find.

When we arrived we were simply thankful to get inside and out of the snow. Marc was just going out as we arrived as we'd said we were arriving later, but nevertheless he was very helpful and welcoming. Marianne kindly showed us to our room and told us everything we needed to know and to go and find them should... More

At the end of a week long trip through Scotland, our two nights at the Balmoral Guesthouse were the icing on the cake. The GH is a beautiful old building with an impressive staircase. Our room was spacious, nice and equiped with all amenities, including wifi. The GH is located in Leith, about halfway between the harbour and Northbridge. The... More
