We have just had a fabulous 6 night stay at the Violet Bank House. There aren’t enough stars in the Trip Advisor review system to give it justice here – we would award it 10 if that was possible! From the initial booking, to the very warm and friendly welcome and throughout our stay, our whole experience was of total... More

This B&B is an excellent choice for exploring the Edinburgh area. We stayed four nights. The room was spacious and clean. Reta and John make you feel welcome in their home. There is a nice lounge downstairs to enjoy. Breakfast is very good. Reta is so helpful with travel planning as she used to be in the tourism business. The... More

This B&B is located in Currie - originally a village now within the city limits of Edinburgh on the southwest side, a short distance from the airport. Busses to the city center leave stop just a few meters from the B&B. There are two pubs with good menus within shouting distance, and other restaurants are within a 20-30 minute walk.... More

We spent just one night in this beautiful b&b and we felt like home. Both hosts were very helpful and they provided us all the informations we needed to visit the city. The room was ample and very comfortable and offered a view on the lovely rear garden; the en-suite bathroom was large and clean. Breakfast was rich, the buffet... More

We really enjoyed our 3 night stay at Violet Bank. Reta and John were very welcoming and very generous with help and advice about everything we needed from local buses to where to buy lunch for a sick uncle. Our room, and indeed the whole house, was spotless and very comfortable. Our room was at the back of the house... More

The beauty and comfort of the house was exceeded only by the hospitality of the host's. The bed and breakfast were beyond anything I expected, making it much more than a "bed and breakfast". Every detail was attended to, from dinner reservations to bus and train schedules and even boarding passes. You will not receive this kind of attention even... More

This is a delightful place to stay whether here for business or pleasure, travelling in company or alone. The hosts make you feel very welcome but are not intrusive, and it is great to have a guest lounge available.

My stay was very pleasant. My room was on suite and very large and comfortable room. The bed is so comfortable you may not want to ever get out of it:-) Breakfast was very nice and the fresh fruit which was served every morning was delicious and varied.
