We have just spent the best weekend in the great city of Edinburgh which was made better by the best B&B we have ever stayed in. It's in a beautiful old building full of character but with modern bedrooms. The best thing about this place though is the owners Tess and Jay, they made is feel so welcome and could... More

Myself and 12 other girls stayed at 53 Fredrick Street this weekend for a friends hen do and it was PERFECT in every way!

Eight of us stayed here early January 2015 to celebrate 2 x 50th birthdays- we were two families of 4, ages ranging from13 to 50, we had two quad rooms, which were immaculately clean and very comfortable. Tess and her partner Jay were most amiable, offering good advise on local restaurants, pubs and tourist attractions. The location is great for... More

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.

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
