My husband and I stayed at Pillars House for a weekend. It was one of my favorite places we've ever stayed! Our flight got in quite late and Ms. Edna stayed up to make sure that we got in all right. The next morning she and Holly made us a lovely breakfast (I should note that my husband and I... More

She was available to answer all our questions and even helped book a coach tour through the highlands. She went above and beyond what was expected. The room was very comfortable and clean. The hot...

Just got back from a lovely weekend. We stayed at The Pillars for the first time and we couldn't have asked for a nicer friendlier place to stay. Nothing is too much trouble. The room was lovely and comfortable and clean. Breakfast was excellent, a good hearty Full Scotish breakfast with all the trimmings and cooked in front of you.... More

Good sized room. Bit hard for me to get used to having large table set in the kitchen for breakfast and Propiter cooking. Had become used to being in Dining Rooms. No worries very friendly. Close to transport. Hotels in city had good deals 2main meals for £8 .95

What a lovely find in Leith, Edinburgh! It is about a 20 minute walk from Princes street and was really homely and I had such a wonderfully relaxing stay there. I had been travelling for 2 days and this was my final night's stay over away from home. Out of all the places i stayed, I found it to be... More

Lovely roomy rooms, I wanted to take the bed home it was that comfy, very clean with fresh towels and bedding as you would expect. The breakfast table was crammed with more food options than a cookery encyclopaedia, the cooked breakfast was superb and more to follow if your hungry. Edna, Forbes, Maggie and Polo the dog are great hosts,... More

stayed here for 3 nights. Welcoming hosts Edna and Forbes, gave us lots of information on local area and how to get about. Free parking for our car which was a great bonus. Buses stop near by to get to Edinburgh centre. Room was more than adequate for us both, double bed and a single, wardrobe, tea making facility, television,... More
