My boyfriend and I (28 years) are travelling through Scotland and Edinburgh was our first stop. The owners of this B&B are very friendly and the room with its bathroom very neat. The house is situated next to a bus stop or you can take a walk to the city center. The breakfast was delicious! We would have loved to... More

As soon as I entered the door of Pillars House, I was warmly welcomed by the owner Edna and her lovely dog Polo. Everybody there is very nice and friendly, and the guests are living there as if they belong to the family :) I really like this Victorian style building. The kitchen/dining gives you such a "home" feeling. The... More

We really enjoyed our 1 night stay at Pillars house. The place was clean and comfortable. Edna and Maggie cooked a lovely breakfast and were great to chat with. The staff were extremely friendly and We sure felt welcomed! Would certainly recommend for a short stop.

Flew up to Edinburgh solo for an appointment which I was feeling anxious about. Received quick, friendly replies to my email enquiry and questions beforehand. Easy journey on the £7.50 airlink 100 (return) ticket, then No 16 short bus ride from George Street to Duke Street crossroads at Leith (ask the driver to call you). Maggie was really nice, welcoming,... More

The Pillars House Hotel is very friendly and you feel immediately at home (or at least I did anyway!). The manageress was lovely and very chatty which is nice when you're travelling alone. I find in a lot of places that when you travel alone the staff are never sure how to treat you but I felt like I was... More

Such an excellent place. The breakfast was fantastic and the rooms were spotless. Our Hostess Edna, was accommodating with of our unplanned tardiness to book, and helpfully suggesting a tour of the highland. The warmth and welcoming of the place coupled with knowledge of local eateries, is a must stay for those coming to Scotland, much less Edinburgh. Our only... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Pillars house was originally built and owned by Crawford which were offices and a spirit store in the late 18th century. Most of the building still has a lot of its character left as you can see as you walk in through the main entrance. The courtyard where our free parking is situated was traditionally used as the delivery entrance where the horse and carts brought the whiskey from the highlands to be blended. ... more   less
