David and Lydie are excellent hosts of this Band B. Rooms are clean and comfortable. David will carry your bags upstairs [thanks]. Parking is available but a tight fit. Walking to the city thru the park takes 25mins.

Like a five star hotel! Fabulous welcome, luxury room and the best service. Welcoming, spotlessly clean, stylish and pretty. Breakfast was top notch, lots of choice including vegan. Best omelettes ever! Felt like I'd known Lydie and David for years, wonderful couple! Location perfect, quiet but a few steps to local restaurants and bars and the main bus route. Thoroughly...

We arrived to a welcoming hostess Lydie! She was friendly and warm! The townhouse is about a 30+ minute walk to Waverly Central Station but the bus stop is just a couple of minutes walk to the townhouse. The room is immaculately clean. Our room was on the top floor and nights were quiet. Breakfasts are made to your liking... More

I stayed here for one night in June. Room was very nicely decorated and comfortable. Didn't feel like a b and b room due to ornaments and other nice touches in the room. The toilet constantly flowed but a txt message from the owner explained the knack of sorting it(she could hear it from the basement flat). I didn't have... More

The accomodation excelled in every respect. Room/Service/Breakfast/Location stood out from the rest. We were particularly impressed with the ambiance and decor. Would highly recommend. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Spent the weekend at this truly lovely guest house. We were welcomed by the hostess Lydie, who took the time to make us feel very welcome and at home. The room was spotless and very tastefully decorated, a real plessure to have the use of. The shower was excellent, good water pressure and a good variation of heat. The breakfast... More

Just returned from a lovely weekend break at the Albyn Townhouse with my boyfriend. From start to finish, Lydie made us feel so very welcome and nothing was too much trouble. The townhouse is beautifully and uniquely decorated - Scotland meets France! I would return here in a flash and would be disappointed not to come back. Thank you for... More

Not only were the accommodations great-clean,comfy and quiet but Lydie and David were not only friendly and helpful but lifesavers. My bank had screwed up and my ATM card was not working. David let me use their phone to call the States to straighten things out! You will not regret staying and the breakfast was awesome.

My husband & I stayed here from Fri 22 to Mon 25 May 2015. Our flight was delayed but Lydie, the owner, was cheerful and accommodating (excuse the pun). On the way up to the room the hall and stairs were enhanced by fairy lights in large pot plants and there was a bookcase with a range of titles available.... More
