we booked to stay for a weekend break and had a really good time. We were welcomed as we arrived and I felt nothing was too much trouble for them.The room was spotless with a comfy bed and fresh linen-the towels were plump and big and we felt very comfortable. Breakfast was wonderful with good service and high quality food.... More

We stayed in the Alba Hills Guest House for two days and we had a very, very nice time. Before we decided to book, the junior director showed us the room and all facilities, explained the breakfast options and gave us a restaurant tip for dinner. We felt really welcome. Our room was located in the ground floor and had... More

I stayed at this B&B with my fiance for two nights over a weekend. We received a warm welcome from the wonderful woman who essentially runs the entire place (I apologize - I have forgotten the name). She was immediately helpful with directions, especially how to use the very good bus system (she even provided a printout of which bus... More

Let me just say, I'm overwhelmed! I stayed at this guest house for one night, before I had to leave Scotland and was really sad about it, but the owner welcomed me so friendly, showed me everything and was such a kind and lovely person! I had to leave for the airport really early, so he actually made breakfast ready... More

Alba Hills Guest House is a short bus trip to the centre of Edinburgh, or a pleasan 20-30 minute walk. The B & is very comfortable, with good facilities and a decent-sized bedroom and bathroom. The staff were friendly and helpful, and an excellent Scottish breakfast (or continental if you prefer) was served each morning. I'd defintitely stay here again.

This was my third year staying here while visiting the Fringe Festival and it won't be my last. I was there for five days. Itziar and the rest of the staff are very welcoming and attentive.
