The Victorian Town House B&B is wonderful. It is in a beautiful quiet location, within a ten minute walk to most attractions. Aileen made us feel welcome with chocolates and whiskey in our huge room. Breakfast every morning was great. Would definitely stay with Aileen again.

The Victorian Town House, must be the best B&B in Edinburgh. Aileen is the best landlady you would wont to meet. Nothing is any trouble to her. We were there 6-10 July15. This was our third visit to the B&B. Each time we stayed in a different room. All of them were very good. As for the breakfast, you could... More

We stayed four nights at the Victorian Town House B&B and would highly recommend. Aileen is a lovely, friendly landlady and her extra attention to detail cannot be overlooked. The welcome with chocolates and whisky in the room was a lovely treat and offering fresh milk for tea/coffee was appreciated. The breakfast is also amazing, we never went hungry with... More

Coming from The Philippines we received a great welcome with a small decanter with Scotch and Chocolates placed in our room. Very nice recommendable place beside the German Scottish Consulate. Walking distance to central town with all the attractions. Great breakfast served by Aileen (the host) in apron, breakfast menu a la carte.

We were very luck to stay with the amazing host, Aileen in March this year. Despite making a mistake with our booking she welcomed us with open arms. We had the most spacious apartment like room with sofa, tv, fireplace and full bathroom within her luxurious townhouse in a beautiful crescent in the heart of Edinburgh. Our room was incredibly...

I read a trip advisor review of The Victorian Townhouse and checked out the website. We stayed there May 15 thru 17 and again May 22 thru 25 as our travels took us in and out of Edinburgh.

Staying in West End

Neighborhood Profile
West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in industrial Britain had their most desirable neighborhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes. Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along the district’s busy main roads. Lothian Road connects to southern Edinburgh and harbors a vague entertainment district: three theaters and the city’s main indie cinema. All attract a select crowd, the sort who appreciate the Saturday Edinburgh’s Farmers’ Market around the corner. The West End’s other great thoroughfare, Shandwick Place, is dominated by trams trundling out to the suburbs and airport, and shoppers picking up last-minute items before hopping aboard.
