The guest house is very pleasant. Service is great, everyone is very friendly, polite and respecful. The house is very old fashion but in a good way, it is like experiencing edinburgh 100 years ago but with the rooms and carpet being perfectly clean and nothing is worn out. The breakfast is varied, I appreciated the variety of breads, cheeses... More

I stayed here as a solo traveller that needed a central base. I was fortunate enough to have a single room with a perfect view of Arthurs Seat. It is a short walk from the city centre, arthurs seat and all the main attractions. Breakfast were very good and set me up for my busy days. I would certainly stay... More

Stayed here for a short course on the King's site and found the place very amenable. It was within a good walking distance of the King's site (~10-15 mins) and Edinburgh city centre (~half an hour) as well as being really close to Arthur's Seat. Very good breakfast and really very good service each morning. Amazing towels in the bathroom... More

The guest house is well situated, particularly if you have a car (otherwise, you need to walk a little bit to get to the city center). The parking lot is free, and there is always a spot available. The breakfast was very good, and the room was clean and well furnished. In conclusion, we loved our stay at Alba Hills... More

Loved everything about this B&B! I was a solo traveler and found it very easy to get to (1 mile or so from Waverley Station and town center on an easy to use bus route or straight shot walk). Everyone was friendly and welcoming. My room was ready on arrival as I had previously been contacted by them about my... More
