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

Couldn't have stumbled across a better place to stay - absolutely wonderful in every way. The deco inside was fantastic, the room was really beautiful, clean and comfortable. The breakfast was heavenly! Brilliant location too, only a 20 min walk through a lovely area - would not stay anywhere else when returning to Edinburgh.

very comfortable B&B, not quite in the centre of Edinburgh, but there a many buses a few minutes walk away. Beds very comfortable indeed with modern bathrooms. Also very good Scottish breakfasts in the morning. (But the packed breakfast a bit plain.) All the staff/ owners very friendly and helpful. It is a B&B so it is not staffed 24... More

A friend and I booked a room each at the Albyn Townhouse for our first four nights in Edinburgh and we were so sorry that we couldn't book more on our return from Inverness. They were booked out for that period. Where to begin - well how about starting with Lydie, the owner. She is a real sweet person and... More

Stayed her for 4 nights in april/may and we can only agree on all positive comments about this place. Locationwise perfect with a 20 min walk to the city center and a lot of quality restaurants just around the corner. The rooms were great, some with an amazing view and others towards garden school, etc. The entire establishment was spotless,... More

Absolutely fantastic as always, beautiful room, beautiful food, very friendly staff, and David &Lyndi cannot do enough to make you feel welcome, highly recommend what ever the length of your stay. Within easy walking distance to the centre of Edinburgh, buses are a plenty to the town.

A very nice B&B with a wonderful staff. Lydie really makes you feel welcome and will draw everything you need to know about Edinburgh on her maps. Breakfast is everything you want it to be and the homemade cakes and jams are to die for. The location is just outside the busiest quarters but the walk to the center is... More

The B&B is at a walking distance from the city centre (20mins to the castle), rooms were cosy and clean, good en suite bathroom with shower, WONDERFUL breakfast with a number of different choices, all tasty and well cooked....
