Three friends, in their 60s, needed a place to stay in Edinburgh on the last night of a two week hiking trip through Northern England. Instead of booking an ordinary airport hotel we chose to spend what little time remained of our sojourn in this historic home with the benefit of it's near location to old town. I had read... More

Starting with the basics, this is a perfect location from which to explore Edinburgh. A comfortable walk from the train station (even with luggage) we found Stevenson House a great base. There is a small cafe around the corner which served very fresh sandwiches, soups, and other goodies, which we were ready for when we first arrived. We stayed in... More

We were recommended to try this B&B by another which was already full - this being in the middle of the Edinburgh Fringe. We were very fortunate that they had one room available for the night we were there. Well placed centrally. Very comfortable, quiet and clean room with en suite facilities - one minor niggle - there was no... More

I have not yet had the pleasure of staying in this very special B & B, but I hope it will not be long before I do. However, I have taken a group for dinner there. It was a literary tour group with a particular interest in Robert Louis Stevenson. The house is quite fabulous, and the hosts are absolutely... More

We had a lovely trip to Edinburgh, courtesy of the Macfies at the Stevenson house. The house is beautiful and in a wonderful location, close to all the shops etc. of the New Town but on a quiet residential street opposite a vast leafy communal garden. The family were really friendly and helpful in giving us advice about the city... More

The Stevenson house is a most wonderful place for staying in this great city. Located very central in a most elegant street, this home is full of character and charme. I felt very much at home and enjoyed the peaceful and kind atmosphere.

Based on other reviews we are clearly in the minority but we found this an odd experience. We have stayed in many B and B's but this is the only time that there was no TV in the room or any tea or coffee making facility. The double room has a nice four poster bed but the room is cluttered... More

Dear FizzChick, Thank you very much for your review. We are disappointed to hear that you did not enjoy your stay as you had told us you had when you departed. We do not have tea/coffee making facilities in the rooms as we find our guests prefer to have it made freshly for them. Both the evenings you stayed we... More

It was an enjoyable experience staying at the Stevenson House, started by Felicitas's warm welcome by the door on our arrival and again her warm goodbye and offering of a hot tea when we departed in a very early cold rainy morning. As we arrived early, the room wasn't ready and when we returned in the afternoon, John was so... More

We came up to Edinburgh for the weekend and had a wonderful time at the Stevenson House. The hosts are absolutely lovely and the room was amazing. They were very helpful and able to offer lots of excellent advice on places to eat and see. Would definitely recommend!
