After years of marriage, my husband and I were finally able to take a honeymoon. Abercorn Guest House was the perfect choice! The home is decorated well and Angela was an exceptional hostess and cook. She noticed small details from our conversations and went out of her way to make our stay more pleasant. For example, when I mentioned that... More

A beautiful and comfortable place to stay in the wonderful city of Edinburgh, close enough to the city for easy access by public transport but also far enough away to be very quiet at night. It’s also only a 1 minute walk to the beach which was a nice bonus. My partner and I recently stayed here to celebrate our... More

Fantastic hospitality and a really nice welcome with a pot of tea on arrival. Angela and Willie are great hosts.This is a beautifully appointed stylish house with lovely rooms and great breakfast. Easy access to the city centre by bus or cab and I certainly wouldn't stay anywhere else on future visits to Edinburgh.

We stayed here for a one night break with 2 friends. Angela was really friendly and made us all feel at home. The house has a character and style which can never be matched by a chain hotel. The location is ideal. It is close enough to Edinburgh and just a short walk from the beach. Excellent breakfast with a... More

With work we stay in many guest houses all over Scotland, week in week out and have done for many years! This is by far the best! The welcome, cleanliness, service, decor, and location are all exceptional. This just leaves the breakfast which in every other guesthouse ranges from poor to distinctly avrage! Not here! The food was perfect from... More

We stayed here for two nights in January for a short city break in Edinburgh. We chose to stay here because of the glowing reviews on Trip Advisor, and we weren't disappointed. Angela was a friendly and welcoming host, who made us feel at home. She had great knowledge of the city and was always happy to give advice. The... More
