A perfect B&B. Elizabeth is a perfect host (I am not surprised she won so many awards, well deserved!!), super-nice, fun and witty. She clearly is a professional! B&B is very nice and the room was very clean. The B&B is definitely off the beaten path but if you have a car you can easily reach a Park & Ride... More

This was our second stay at ASHCROFT. Our first visit was only two short nights. This time we stayed for four. Elizabeth and Derek Scott could not be better hosts. The rooms are well appointed and nicely decorated. They have added smenities such as a dressing table and mirrors placed where you can use them. The linens and towels are... More

Glad you arrived home safely and delighted that you enjoyed your stay, where I tried to fatten you up every morning! It is lovely when previous guests make a return visit as we know that we must be doing something right. The free Park & Ride is a great asset for us as parking in Edinburgh is a nightmare and...

We love when Carol comes to stay as she 'appreciates' Derek'smusical renditions on his harmonica after breakfast. We are very lucky that we have a tremendous repeat business which means that we must be doing something right! Don't take too long to make a return trip from Portugal to Bonnie Scotland. More

My husband and I stayed for 3 nights over New Year and had a lovely time. The room was clean and comfortable, the breakfasts were very good and hearty - Elizabeth made sure that my husband had gluten and dairy free options. Finally, Elizabeth and Derek were an absolute delight - super friendly, chatty and made us feel very welcome.

Chose this b&b for it's proximity to the Airport/Royal Highland Centre, 7 miles, & what a good choice it was. Room, cleanliness & parking facilities were all great. Elizabeth, the owner, was very attentive & an excellent host. Breakfast times were flexible from 6.45 which suits if you have an early start. Breakfast was very hearty with all local hand... More

I like meeting people wherever I travel in the world...and I absolutely love meeting wonderful people like Elizabeth and Derek. They are what separates the Ashcroft from all the other 4 Star B&Bs in the area. If you leave there feeling bitter or hungry, then we did not stay at the same place. I would like to again say thanks... More
