You must stay here if you are going to be in the area for any length of time. Lydia and David are wonderful guests and very helpful and knowledgeable about the area. They even offered a room on the lower floor for my mobile-challenged mother, when one became available. The rooms are quiet, clean, warm and inviting. The breakfast they... More

We stayed at Albyn on a recommendation from family. The B&B itself was nice enough- but I found the service completely lacking. Emails not responded to (sent weeks before our arrival), phone messages not replied to (a few days before arrival you get an automatically generated email stating reception is not staffed 24/7 so unless you tell them a time...

We stayed 3 days at Albyn. The rooms were very quiet and comfortable. I The staff was welcoming and helpful. The breakfast was good. It is about 15 minute walk to the Royal Mile and 10 minutes to the excellent National and Royal museums. There are great restaurants about 2 minutes away. Highly recommend it.

Arrived here with my daughter and sister for a few days and rather hurriedly shown our room but no help in bringing bags up stairs which was a shame as my sister and I are both in our 50s! We had a large family room on first floor.Beds were comfortable but my daughter's ( a pull out bed ) moved... More

I loved my experience at Albyn! The owners were super, sharing their favorite restaurants and sights. The decor was charming, the rooms were beautiful and very clean! The breakfast choices are plenty and very tasty. This B&B is at the end of a quiet street, away from the hustle of downtown Edinburgh, but close enough to walk to the castle... More

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
