I booked Kilmaurs Guest House based off the recommendation on this site, and I was not disappointed. It is located close enough to walk to the Royal Mile, the palace, and Arthur's Seat, or you can grab the bus just one street over. The breakfast is fantastic and cooked especially for you every morning. The beds were comfortable and the... More

The house is situated in a very quiet area and just 1 minute walk from the bus stop. It takes 10 minutes by bus to the city centre. The rooms are beautiful and spacious. The only thing is the bathroom that is quite small and a bigger person would have troubles getting in and out. The owners are very helpful... More

After flying all night, we were thrilled that our room was ready and waiting before noon. Donna is a wonderful hostess who genuinely wants you to have a good stay. She provides very helpful suggestions and information. This B&B is a lovely 30 min walk to downtown Edinburgh and only a 10 to 15 min. walk to Arthur's Seat. Local... More

That's a plea from the heart - and my stomach - to Donna, who runs Kilmaurs House, surely one of the best B & B's in Edinburgh. She is threatening to stop providing breakfasts to die for and a welcome much warmer than the Scottish weather in favour of early retirement. My annual visits to the Edinburgh Festival just won't...

Kilmaurs House was our first stop after deplaning in Edinburgh, having been "on the road" for nearly 24 hours. The McKinlay's were the most enjoyable host/hostess, we very surely landed on our feet for the three nights we spent there. Ever helpful and accommodating, our hosts contrived to ease our trip in many ways, including a supper recommendation (Salisbury Arms)... More

Stayed here 2 nights and was very happy with the location and facilities. Donna is a super hostess and makes you feel right at home. Her suggestions (walk to Holyrood via the park - return via bus) certainly fit us. Recommendations for eating locally (Salsbury Hotel and Voujon) were hits with us. And her short-cut directions to the Glasgow airport... More

My wife and I stayed here for 4 days in mid September. We loved our host Donna and how she went out of her way to make our trip to Edinburgh a memorable one. The rooms were great with a comfortable bed and cable television. The breakfasts Donna prepared were delicious and she was always willing to give us travel... More

I stayed here with my friend during the few days that we spent in Edinburgh. It was the most lovely place. We had a spectacular view out of our bedroom window and it was in a nice quiet location close to everything. The owner is fantastic and was an exceptional host. She was very accommodating to my friends dietary needs... More
