I recently stayed here with family and it was perfect for what we wanted. We had a quad room which was extremely spacious, very warm and cosy, with an en suite bathroom which was clean and tidy, hanging space for clothes. The owners are lovely and very accommodating for their guests needs. The hotel itself is situated ideally for those... More

I stayed at No. 53 Frederick Street in a triple room with two friends in September. Our room was HUGE and very clean, and the bathroom had been recently renovated. The hotel is in a great location for exploring Edinburgh - close to shops, restaurants, etc. I would definitely stay there again.

This is in a fantastic location. The room was very clean.we were disappointed to find that we had booked a on suite room but had to use a bathroom across the hall. The bathroom was private but our days of looking around a hall way and dashing to the loo in the night are long gone!!!!! Staff were really friendly.... More

We stayed in the overspill in 60 India Street and could not have been looked after better. Nothing was too much trouble for our lovely host who provided the most delicious breakfast as well as catering to our rather random list of requirements - not just a hairdryer but also selotape and scissors to wrap early xmas gifts, advice on...

Upon arrival I had a very warm welcome and was sat down in the lounge by David who went through a map of the area and gave recommendations on places to see and what I may enjoy doing during my stay. The room itself was very spacious and clean. All comforts available. The location of the b&b is perfect. Close... More

We came up to Edinburgh for the weekend and we stayed at 53 Frederick St. On 1st arrival, we nearly missed it as the main entrance is a small door situated next to Ricks bar (the place you get your keys from out of hours by the way!) A few stairs to climb, so if you don't like that then... More

We thoroughly enjoyed staying at No. 53 Frederick Street! The location is perfect, and as a group of four ladies' touring some of the United Kingdom, we all agreed that we felt most comfortable and safe at No. 53 Frederick Street. At first I was a little hesitant that there was no elevator, but now I think having had one... More

A friend and I stayed for one night in room 7 on the 6th November. The large room was warm, and beautifully furnished. The ensuite bathroom was spotlessly clean, and the large shower had plenty of pressure and steaming hot water. Nothing was too much trouble for Tessa, ordering taxis, looking after luggage for us etc. Breakfast is served next... More
