Myself and my partner have stayed at this b&b on two occasions and have been really pleased. Extremely friendly staff and Great transport links to the city! Wonderful little breakfast as well! Would highly recommend!

Quite nice B&B right outside the city centre. It's approximately a 15 - 20 minute trip by bus. Overall, the room was large, clean, and comfortable. My girlfriend had an interview the morning were checking out, which caused us to run 20ish minutes late. We received a 10 pound late change. While we clearly violated the rules, it seemed a... More

I normally stay at hotels when on business but I stayed here for one night and was pleasantly surprised. I have paid the same price - around £65 for hotels and then found them to be uncomfortable and tacky but for the same price the quality was better than some hotels, The room was clean, not the biggest or the...

The proprietor was conscientious and nice. The house and rooms were exceptionally clean and comfortable. The location is convenient to busses going downtown and to the airport. It's also right across the street from the zoo, handy for seeing the giant pandas! Our room faced the road but with the window closed it was very quiet. One thing for tall... More

An exceptional B&B with understated charm and elegance, I wasn't expecting anything like this for the price I paid. My twin-bedded room was not huge, but spacious enough, with a lovely en-suite shower room. The whole house was decorated to a very high standard, with nice finishes everywhere. Breakfast times were limited to between 7:30 and 8:30 but that suited... More

Looking for a place to stay close to Edinburgh Airport. This place was lovely, homely & clean! Iain was very helpful arranging a late check-in due to a late flight and also when re-booking again, a few nights later. Breakfast nice, but a little too early for my liking (not being a morning person), but this proved very helpful when... More

We stayed here for two nights in a room number 5. The room was really great, large and lovely decorated and very clean with a small en-suite bathroom, bed was very comfortable. The only negative thing was that it had window to very busy corstorphine road so it was a little bit noisy but nothing terrible. The location was opposite... More

We booked all the rooms in Dalmore Lodge for our son's wedding at the Zoo. Location was ideal as directly opposite so ideal for the Grooms grandma!!!

Many thanks for your review. So nice to know you appreciated the room and our excellent location for Edinburgh Zoo. Over the years, we have tried different juice combinations in the morning but they have always been left and have gone to waste hence the orange juice only. Also sorry you thought the portions weren't bigger but with 2 slices... More
