The whole Bed and Breakfast was quant. The location is wonderful, in the middle of everything. The breakfast in the morning was at a café/bar below.... More

A quirky but comfortable bed and breakfast up a long flight of stairs in the heart of Edinburgh. Breakfast is served in in the restaurant in the building's basement in a cafe called Ricks. I found the breakfast excellent and my favorite which is poached eggs were perfect and NOT flopping about on a soggy piece of toast. Beds comfortable... More

Very traditional accommodation, uneven floor boards and ceilings, very quant. Very friendly owners, happy to impart tips for city sight seeing. Only down side was breakfast which was served a couple of doors down at another restaurant. Really... More

I really enjoyed my stay at 53 Frederick Street in Edinburgh. The main aim of my visit was to photograph the city for an exhibition, so I needed to be as central as possible. 53 is a lovely B&B right in the heart of Edinburgh, walking distance of everything you need to see. Once a family home with lots of... More

The service from start to finish was impeccable. I booked this B&B pretty last minute as I had problems with the hotel I had booked. Tessa made the booking simple and emails/phonecalls were informal and friendly. The B&B wasn't far from the bus station and a 2 minutes walk from Rose Street. The room was spotless, everything looked fresh and... More

I have stayed in this hotel several times now and am booked to go several more as I am often in Edinburgh. I used to vary the hotels that I stayed in but now that I've found this one I wouldn't stay anywhere else. For those that now Edinburgh it is just 10 seconds away from George Street and 2... More

Earlier this month, accompanied by a friend from Australia we were touring the country and looked forward to our visit to Edinburgh where we were meeting our friend's relatives. This booking was made by our friend on-line which is why I missed the description of the location on 2nd and 3rd floors and no lift. However this wasn't the main... More

Thank you for taking the time to write such a detailed review. However you have given a very one sided point of view, while I am happy to take constructive criticism I disagree with many of your versions of our conversation. As you say your friend booked the accommodation- we state that we are on the second and third floors... More
