Amazing b&b in a lovely location! Just a few steps from Portobello's beach, a bit old-fashioned but really fascinating! We ll connected to Edinburgh by bus, free car park is also available if you rent a car! Hosts are great! Higly recommended!

Angela was always so friendly and helpful- she gave us lots of advice about places to visit and how to get there, and genuinely cared... More

Stayed here for one night during a business trip. Arrived during a horrendous sleet shower but was warmly welcomed by Angela who immediately showed me to my room which was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Angela then advised me re local pubs and restaurants. Breakfast was superb with lots of different items available and check out was a breeze. A... More

Our stay was lovely, Angela, the lady of the house was very welcoming. Breakfast was very good and the room was warm and cosy. Angela helped us with the selection of the different nice places to visit and gave some good tips when we continued our journey to the highlands.

Proprietors Angela and Willy McDonald couldn’t be friendlier and nothing is too much trouble. We had been traveling in the UK and Ireland for 4 ½ weeks before arriving in Portobello, staying in major chain hotels and private B & B’s. Honestly, Abercorn Guesthouse was at once amazing. The entrance hall is spacious and comfy. We arrived at about 5pm... More
