This Victorian housed B&B is a delightful find within a short walking distance from the Royal Mile. Our room (#3) overlooked the garden and was really quite pleasant. Both the 'double bed' and the en-suite were quite small for our tastes but everything was clean with good attention to detail. Slippers, tea/coffee tray, flat screen TV and free wi-fi are... More

Wonderful gorgeous place with excellent breakfast included (several choices) clean and friendly. Good location near hop-on-hop off buses to central area. Near several good restaurants with directions provided. A great value for the money.

We stayed two nights at this B&B. This house is under relatively new ownership and they are aiming to please. They accommodated our late arrival and assisted with our bags both up the two flights of stairs and down on the second morning. Breakfast was very good and Ivy was very attentive to make sure we felt welcome and we... More

I'm not one to often leave reviews, but the Gladstone Guesthouse is a delightful find. Ivy and Xia are fabulous hosts with a real personal touch making sure your stay is enjoyable. Location is excellent, although the main road is a little noisy at times, but you do get used to it. Room and bathroom were immaculately clean and the... More

Gladstone house is a "great discover" managed by Heng and Xia. Gladstone is a B&B located at less than 10 minutes by foot by the Royal Mile, one of the "best attraction" in Edinburgh (the mile that goes from the Castle to the Holyrood Palace). It's a small B&B but it's nice, clean, elegant and cosy: my room was great,... More

Gladstone House is an absolutely brilliant place to stay. About 15 mins from the Royal Mile, it has everything you can possibly ask of a B&B. The rooms are spacious, spotless and extremely comfortable, the breakfast is simply incredible and Tom and Hamish will go head over heel to help you with maps, recommendations and tips to visit the city....

We had a fantastic stay at Gladstone House! We visited Edinburgh for a wedding in the city centre, and this was the ideal location to get into town easily, but still provided us with a really relaxed stay. The house itself is absolutely beautiful, and our room was airy and bright, with lovely decoration and a view into the back... More

Thank you for taking the time to write this review. We wish you luck with our marmalade recipe although you may be too late to buy the special oranges needed as they are only available for a short season in late January and early February. So don’t delay if you want to have a shot. We have already had a... More
