The accommodation is first class and the hosts are very welcoming. It is within easy walking distance of the city centre and has many splendid eating places close to hand if you don't want to walk into town in the evening. All in all a very pleasant and relaxing place to stay.

This was a beautiful guest house with professional and amiable hosts. The rooms are large and the breakfast excellent. There is an excellent bus service just outside the door. Highly recommended as a place to stay in Edinburgh.

I went to Edinburgh the 14th of August this year and had a very pleasant stay. I stayed there at all for 6 nights. After 4 nights I went to Isle of Skye a couple of days and then return to Gladstone House and stayed there for more 2 nights. Tom and Hamish are very helpful and they make your... More

Gladstone House was our first stop when we arrived in Edinburgh for a whirlwind tour of Scotland, and Hamish and Tom were our first introduction to the warmth of the Scots. Our accommodations were small but lovely and breakfast was wonderful consisting of thick, homemade slices of brown bread along with a menu of egg and pancake dishes topped with... More

I stayed here for 5 nights in July 2014 while I attended a course. Its a very pretty hotel with tasteful rooms that are spotlessly clean. The breakfast choice is great and amongst the best I have experienced. The owners were very helpful and quickly provided me an electric fan when i said my room was too warm - it... More

This is a lovely place to stay, clean comfortable rooms, friendly hosts and lovely breakfasts. It is very convenient with a bus stop just outside or you can take the picturesque walk into the city. There are also a variety of restaurants and a pub which does very good food close by. The hosts could not have been more helpful;... More

Tom and Hamish were very helpful and friendly for our first 2 nights in Edinburgh. The Gladstone house is in a quiet neighborhood within walking distance to the Royal Mile (Tom and Hamish will give you 3 walking routes into town, the long way through the Meadows is a great way to see some parts of the city, but was...

We stayed at Gladstone House on the last bank holiday weekend of May. The owners, Hamish and Tom, were very friendly and accommodating proving lots of local information. The b&b is in a great location and walkable to all of the main city centre attractions. Would definitely recommend.

By far one of the best bed and breakfasts we have stayed in (as frequent international travellers, this says a lot). The accommodation was superb (spacious and well appointed) as was the breakfast (home cooking at its best). The hosts, Hamish and Tom were more than friendly and attentive showing a passion for their bed and breakfast lodging. The location... More

The decor in our room was very good and we felt very much at home. The range of food available for breakfast was enough for anyones needs and of course was more than tasty. We would be pleased to return to this friendly B&B where nothing was to much trouble.
