This B&B was close to the Portobello Swim Center , which is why it was chosen , to enable my fiancée to complete her course. I would say the attention to detail in customer satisfaction and the furnishings in the hotel and room were of an excellent standard. I consider the proprietors to be excellent , in both their personal... More

We found this place from a quick browse of the internet and what a great find it was. Great price and fabulous breakfast for all and any culinary tastes. What we were impressed with was the value for money and the comfort level normally associated with higher priced establishments. Angela was even kind enough to share her secrets to a... More

place to stay. Clean, comfy, perfect poached eggs - how do you do that? Location is great. Went for a run along the prom - swimming pool close by too - wish I'd known. Takes about half an hour into the city on the bus. Very pleasant spot.

We have just returned home from a fabulous long weekend in Edinburgh staying at Abercorn Guest House. We were made to feel so welcome by Angela and her family who went out of their way to make our stay memorable. A guest house with true style, comfort, large rooms, excellent breakfasts and great seaside location with easy access into the... More

My partner and myself have just got back from a long weekend at the Abercorn guest house in Edingburgh. Angela (the owner) was so welcoming and we were able to get into our lovely room early on the day we arrived. The bedroom was large, bright and beautifully decorated and had everything we needed. Angela gave us lots of helpful... More

We stayed three nights in this beautiful home! The hostess, Angela, is exceptional! She is welcoming and very helpful! The house is 2 short blocks from the beach. The bus stop for the city is right outside the front door! Wonderful breakfast and comfy bed! You won't go wrong staying here! A beautiful home inside and out!

We came to celebrate our first wedding anniversary and from arriving to departing, Angela (the owner) could not have been any more welcoming. Amazing room - so clean, homely and luxurious. And the breakfast was fantastic. Would definitely go back again and will be recommending to our friends and family. Thank you Angela

The Abercorn guest house is a very beautiful old Victorian house, very well presented, well equipped, clean, quiet, fabulous period features, large gardens and good transport links to the city with bus stops almost outside the front gate ( although watch for the grumpy bus drivers). Angela is a great host, the breakfasts are huge and very tasty. The beach... More
