We stayed three nights here in September, and had a great visit. The hosts clearly know how to please their guests, and are energetic and cheerful. Our third floor room (#7) had a view of the Firth of Forth and the Edinburgh castle. It was roomy, clean, and very comfortable. Breakfast was restaurant quality and delicious, with many choices made... More

We booked 2 nights and luckily extended to 3. Lydia and David were very helpful and gracious hosts and could not have been more helpful. Room was of good size and included a comfy lounge. Breakfasts were superb and staff are so friendly and caring. Our room was attended to each day which is nice to come home to after... More

My daughter and I received a very warm welcome from Lydie, a bright friendly host who was very helpful giving tips and directions to the centre of Edinburgh, about a 15-20 minute walk from the B&B. The B&B is a townhouse tucked away at the end of a very quiet road, so it's very peaceful there and a nice area.... More

We booked Albyn Townhouse due to the good valuations on tripadvisor but we were very disappointed. The fist impression was nice. Friendly welcome, although a little bit to hyped. We received some informations and rules AND we have been told by the owner Lydie, that she will not been disturb after 8 pm, except in case of an emergency. Wow,... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Apologies as this is lengthy answer, but I do believe that I need to address a few points. I am truly sorry that you found the Albyn below your standards & that your experience of our home was so bad. It is saddening to have to read all this on... More

We recently stayed here as a close to our drive from London to Edinburgh. I had booked this guesthouse online and had to change the dates a week before the owners, Lydie and David, were more than accommodating and changed our dates with no problems. They are both very friendly and will go above and beyond to make sure you... More

We stayed in this B&B the first day in Scotland from ATL. Our flight arrived at 6:45 AM and I was concerned we would be stuck with our bags for the day (or until the Albyn Townhouse said they accepted early arrivals). No reason to have been concerned because Lydie was more than happy to allow us to stop by... More

Nothing but good things to say about this. Friendly, welcoming hosts that really made you feel that you were genuinely welcome; great location for the city and the local lush Brunswick area; nice room; good breakfasts. Quiet area. Would certainly stay again!

Our stay at Albyn was unplanned. Our previous b & b that we booked cancelled on us and we needed to find a place to stay the next day. It was a last minute reservation, and we were a little apprehensive about staying somewhere we had not planned. As soon as we walked in the door, we felt any doubt... More

Loved this place!!! This was our first experience with a bed and breakfast anywhere (we normally just stay in hotels) Lydie and staff has changed our minds. The location is just a short distance from the Royal Mile and is at the end of a quiet street. Our room was very nice with a view of Edinburgh Castle and overlooked... More

After having a hotel cancel on us the day before we arrived in Edinburgh, we were nervous about this fall-back hotel. We were glad the other place cancelled, because the rooms, the breakfasts, the hosts and the location of this hotel was perfect. Our rooms were all very wonderfully decorated. The husband and wife duo were extremely accommodating and helpful... More
