Stopped here for two nights to go to The Open. We'd stayed about 5 years ago and I'm pleased to report the standards haven't dropped. Nice spacious bedrooms complete with a much needed fridge (given how high the temperatures were) with water, juices, fruit, sweets and crisps. Breakfasts were excellent in the cosy dining room and beautifully presented. As there... More

We loved our stay with Isobel, finding her to be the most kind, good-humored, and helpful host we could have asked for. The rooms were large, welcoming, comfortable and filled with thoughtful touches, such as snacks, maps, and books about the region. The breakfasts were superb! We can't wait to return.

REALLY enjoyed my two nights here. Isobel was the perfect host and the room was just stunning. Enormous room with an enormous bed, with a lovely sofa and cosy throws to snuggle infront of the telly. Kettle, nice big mugs, mini fridge and a bowl of fresh fruit on the table. Quiet location and a peaceful sleep. I never made... More

Louise and I had another lovely stay with Isobel and Jas. They are so friendly and helpful. The room and breakfasts were suberb. It is so nice to come back to a warm room after walking all day around the streets of Edinburgh. This is by way the best B&B that we have stayed in- that is why we come... More

My husband and I and our two adult children stayed over the Christmas and New Year period at the Blacket Garden Flat and had a wonderful stay. Isobel is the sweetest lady and made us feel so welcome. There were lovely little treats in our room each day and the breakfasts were fantastic. She was so helpful in so many... More

We stayed her for three nights during the festival and it was perfect. 5 minutes walk from the venues but in a very pleasant and quiet residential street. Our room was huge with a sofa, TV, small fridge (containing complimentary nibbles and drinks), very comfortable bed and decent ensuite. Breakfast, as established, is amazing and sets you up for a...

This has been our second stay with Isobel and Jimmy at The Blacket Garden Flat, and what a lovely time we have had. All we need to do is ask, and nothing is too much trouble, from lists of bus numbers or shopping advice, to a guide to all the festival locations appearing outside the bedroom door. Breakfast was a... More

A fantastic location greatly enhanced by our hosts Isobel and Jimmy! Our two small sons loved the breakfasts and treats they provided, including Easter eggs. And our stay benefited hugely from their thoughtful advice and suggestions (without being at all intrusive). My husband is even considering purchasing a flat around the corner!

We were delighted with our experience staying at the Blacket Garden Flat. Isobel and James are a wonderful couple who made us feel at home, engaging without being intrusive. We stayed in what is considered the smaller of the two rooms, but it was very large. Certainly much larger than most hotel rooms. The room featured a coffee/tea service, little... More

Isobel and Jas are the nicest, most sincerely interested hosts I've ever had experience with. The room is magnificent, spacious, with a couch, a desk, and a comfortable large bed. We stayed in the king room for 6 days at the beginning of October. Breakfast is included and delicious. I could not get enough of the smoked salmon from Scotland... More
