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....

Stayed at Albyn Friday to Sunday. Lovely large old house that is clean and tastefully decorated. 40 minute walk from Waverley railway station or about £7 in a taxi. Good communication from owners prior to stay. The location of the guest house is good at the end of a very quiet cul de sac. Within 20 min walk of the... More

Stayed for 3 nights with my parents-in-law. Both rooms were lovely with king-sized beds. Lydie is a wonderful hostess and did everything she could to make our stay enjoyable. The breakfasts were fantastic: the normal range of fruit juices and cereals followed by full Scottish breakfast (including haggis); or chive pancakes with scrambled egg, topped with cheese; or vanilla pancakes...

We had a wonderful stay at Albyn Townhouse over the Easter Weekend. The building was beautifully decorated both inside and out with lots of homemade touches. The room was very clean and spacious with a very comfortable bed and a little seating area. You couldn't hear any other guests even though it was full! Breakfasts were great too with a... More

WOOOOOWWWWWWW...thank you for your cleanliness and your decor. It was such a pleasure to stay at your guesthouse. Room at the top of the stairs overlooking the car park - forgotten the number - but that's the one to have. Quiet and beautiful. Yes the school is there in the morning but nothing major to deal with. it is within... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Albyn Townhouse. We were greeted by Lydie and David who are welcoming, friendly hosts that made us feel like home. The house is lovely, you can see the personality of the hosts in the decor, and the location is great, only a short walk from the Edinburgh Castle. Breakfast was delicious with plenty of... More

We were bowled over by the sheer excellence of this lovely B&B. Spotlessly clean, beautifully decorated and well thought out. Lydie and David are very friendly, helpful hosts - nothing is too much trouble. The bedrooms are spacious and well equipped, the breakfasts are out of this world - loads of choice and very well cooked (my husband said it... More
