Stayed two nights in this very spacious lovely room.We were made to feel very welcome by the landlady Aileen who was clearly very knowledgeable about Edinburgh.The house is situated only a short walk from Haymarket station and tram stop. It is also within easy walking distance from the city centre and main attractions. Well worth a visit here if in... More

As a treat for my wife I decided to book this fantastic place for three nights. Flying out early on Thursday ment arriving early before our room was ready. But this didn't stop the lovely owner/landlady Aileen from giving the two of us a very warm welcome. She not only allowed us to leave our luggage safe with her but... More

A spacious room and a friendly, informative hostess are the hallmarks of this inn. Our group of three couples were on the lower level, but there was plenty of natural light in all three rooms. Reasonably close to public transportation, but not quite in the center of things.

There is very little that can be added to say what a wonderful time you will have if you stay here. Aileen is the best host you could wish for and the accommodation is second to none. Spent another 4 nights in Edinburgh and looking forward to another return visit in February. We have already booked our August 2015 trip... More

Aileen Reeves is a magnificent host. You'll never starve if you stay with her. She sends you off with a bag of Muffins after a huge breakfast. The basement accommodation in the beautiful Victorian crescent is spacious, beautifully designed and felt like a second home. The breakfasts and conversations were great. Our room was bedecked with African artefacts and soft... More

Just moved on having stayed at the Victorian Town House in Edinburgh. What a great place. We were greeted by a wonderful warm woman called Aileen who made us feel like she'd known us for years. We stayed in the Colonial Room which was a great big room with a very tastefully decorated room with an African theme. The house... More

My hubby & I stayed here in Feb as we were getting married. My hubby works in conservation and loves period buildings, so the Townhouse was the ideal spot to stay. Aileen was an outstanding hostess & made our stay really special. She serves a first class breakfast as well!! We will defo be back.
