Stayed for a couple of nights to have a look at Edinburgh not having been there before. The B & B was easy to find from the Airport Bus, probably easier still now the trams are working. Check-in was easy and the room more than acceptable. Bed large and comfortable if a little soft. Breakfast at Ricks was ample with... More

I chose this B&B for its location and price (reasonable for a solo traveller in Edinburgh). It's about a 10 minute walk from the station, and close (walking distance) to all the main attractions. There are a couple of flights of stairs to get to the B&B office, and Tessa carried my suitcase up the last flight of stairs to... More

After much research, I booked 54 Frederick Street for 4 nights. It was an excellent choice. The owners were lovely - even if most of our interactions were at 8 a.m., the minute Tessa opens the office! Tessa gave us our room early (appreciated after a rough night on the night train from London), provided helpful suggestions as to wool... More

We stayed at 53 for three nights and was very pleased. The owners of this establishment were wonderful and very helpful. The place was clean and comfortable. Our room was spacious and very quiet. 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

Stayed her in Feb for Scotland v England Rugby game. Several flights of stairs upto the accommodation, not for the faint hearted! 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
