Truly a great overnight stay. Room was great and everything you could ask for. It is so quiet eventhough you are in a city. Near enought to walk to all the sites etc. Breakfast was lovely and service excellent. Was parking available at small cost too. All in all we couldnt ask for more.

We stayed here for two nights and it was lovely! The welcoming was very warm and friendly, the room was spacious, tidy and comfortable and the breakfast was... delicious. There's really not much more too say, except that if we will visit Edinburgh again, that this place will be our first choice!

Stayed 3 nights 3-6th December, booked based on reviews and wasn't dissapointed! The Albyn is a jewel, the decor is wonderfully welcoming, Lydia is an amazing host along with her husband and all the staff especially Ines who serves breakfast. Edinburgh is awesome, did the Castle, Royle mile, Princess street etc. Also intended to visit the Kelpie's at Falkirk... So... More

We got there a Friday night about midnight but we found a very nice welcome letter and a city map, and they also provided us with all the details to get in. The room was such a cute place with a vintage style, that I... More

Arrive on a Friday evening, lovely welcome and given an overview of the house and area. We were tired after our drive and we were shown straight to our room! No 8, on the top floor was lovely and quiet, with a sneaky view of the castle for good measure! The King size room was brilliant and the bed was... More

A family run B&B that makes you feel at home. The owners are very nice and helpful and it was enjoyable to chat to Lydia. The location is in a quiet street. It is about 15 minutes walk from the train station and the old city center and it is possible to take a bus from the bus stop that... More

Locally owned and operated, this B&B has lots of homestyle, comfort and friendliness that makes you feel part of the family. Ok.....so there a stairs to negotiate to your room but wow....what a room! There are major hotels whose rooms pale compared to the Albyn. The room has all the necessities, plenty of space, free wifi, and a comfy bed.... More

We loved our stay here for so many reasons. First, prior to arriving, Lydia was sure to send useful directions to get us from the train station to the townhouse. Then, the staff was very friendly and helpful, even recommending what ended up being our favorite restaurant in Edinburgh. We stayed on the top floor of this charming place and... More

I spent four nights at the Albyn Town House with my 10 year old son. I chose it based on the excellent reviews I had read on line, and was not disappointed. Lydie and David the owners of Albyn Townhouse were incredibly friendly and welcoming, and made us feel very much at home, and were on hand to give help... More
