Lovely rooms in the bottom part of a traditional Georgian House. Fabulous breakfasts with rich discussions with the hosts about Scottland and more. We walked everywhere in the "New Town" and "Old Town" of Edinburgh. Penny and Richard are wonderful hosts!

Penny and her husband, Richard, are absolutely amazing. They are such lovely and interesting people, we ended up chatting to them for a whole morning! The house is in a fantastic location. It's an easy walk to the Royal Mile and very close to the station etc. However, it is on a quiet street which feels safe at night and... More

We stayed at No.38 for the first 3 nights of our recent tour of Scotland. Our room was huge with a double bed, single bed and comfy sofa. A small fridge with fresh milk was an added bonus. The en-suite shower room is small but ok. Wifi is available but we had some problems in our room as the walls... More

We stayed for two nights and loved every minute of it. Penny and Richard are gracious and friendly and made us feel relaxed and at home immediately. The room was furnished with homely touches including reading matter and brochures and maps of the area. The breakfast was beautifully presented and really yummy with more than enough to last us until... More

I was looking for something comfortable, welcoming and, as I am inherently lazy, a central location. This B&B met all my expectations and more. Penny and Rick are a pleasure to meet and a superb source of information.The accommodation was immaculate and so very comfortable. Right in the centre of Edinburgh, I could walk everywhere, though I have to admit... More

A great B & B in aposition just 10 mins walk from Princess street. The place is clean and tidy, the room huge and the breakfast lovely, with super hosts. Edinburgh is fantastic and this place certainly helps the enjoyment of the city. Just one thing, can we have a sign to say its a B & B - I... More

I chose this B&B based on the amazing reviews here on Tripadvisor. When in Edinburgh, I was both pleased and a bit disappointed with my choice. First of all: If you know that you will spend a lot of time around the Royal Mile, Old town or the Palace, you should not stay at this B&B. Because that is the... More

As other reviewers have said, this is a really great B&B, located very close to the centre of Edinburgh. The owners are lovely, the breakfast good and our room (a family room) was huge (more than big enough for 2 adults and 2 teenagers) and comfortable. My only complaint was the noise from outside - we stayed on a Saturday... More
