The objects including the TV in this cluttered room were covered in a layer of dust and grime! Surely the most important things about running a B&B is to ensure that it is clean. Other than that the place was fine for the price. Breakfast was quite good. Do not ever plan to stay here again as there are much... More

I had only a one night stay at the Craigelachie as I was in town for a job interview. I was made to feel most welcome and the surroundings are very comfortable. Provisions were made for me to bring in a take away for tea and a plate was readily provided. The hotel room was comfortable with a lovely bed... More

Georg Oag is a prince among men. I have been staying here or at another B&B owned by good friends of George's every time I visit Edinburgh -- for the last 12 years or so (maybe 6 visits). People who insist on staying right on Prince's street are wasting their money. this street is BEAUTIFUL...I love walking down it to... More

I'll start with the only negative thing you could say about this B&B - the fact that my room was very small and had no window, only a skylight. But I was warned about that - it was, after all, the most 'budget' room in the house. However, it still had everything you could need, and was beautifully decorated. The... More

Everytime we come to Edinburgh we stay here. It is across from Murrayfield, only a short bus journey to the city, very quiet and comfortable. The breakfast is incredible and the owner is very friendly and helpful and the rooms are comfortable. There are only 4/5 guest rooms and they are located on the second floor. We have stayed here...

We have often stayed at the Craigelachie Hotel, especially during the Festival. It is on a quiet, broad, tree-lined avenue near the Murrayfield Stadium, with shops and bus-stops just 100 metres away, including a stop on the very regular and fast airport shuttle. The New Town and Old Town are fairly close, even with the current construction, on busses that... More

I stayed at Craiglachie whilst visiting a local company at the end of June. Room 2a was fine & the breakfast was excellent (especially the fruit salad). All in all, good value especially for such a convenient location.

I and my daughter stayed at the Craigelachie for two nights in June/2012 without previous reservation (there was a mix up at the internet service I used) and were accomodated in two rooms, 1 and 4. My room (1) was not big, but very comfortable, clean and quiet. My daughter's was small, but adequate. Bathrooms were clean and well provided... More

Great location if you don't have a car and are dependent upon Airlink and city buses. We arrived at 11 AM and just hoped to drop off our bags, but our room was ready and waiting for us - a great surprise after a long journey. Bedroom and bathroom were very spacious. Portions at breakfast were huge, and the quality... More
