Comfortable bedroom and ensuite. Quiet area with a delightful garden - but we had no time to sit and relax. Breakfasts take place round a large dining room table. Trains a short walk away to go to Edinburgh or Glasgow.

My wife book this B&B for us and out two young kids for two nights. I'm delighted to say we all enjoyed our stay and the kids loved exploring the well kept gardens. Stay here if you like: real houses lived in by real people, can accept a few quirks, and don't suffer from OCD. Do not stay here if... More

This is a truly great location for visiting in and around Edinburgh Scotland we did not book long enough in this area. The host was just as attentive as needed and not overly pushy. The breakfast was excellent, ample, and refreshing. The host provided us with details of the area we could have missed without his help. Also the host... More

Stayed herewith another couple for a 2 day visit to the fringe at Edinburgh. It is a really lovely country house and run by a really pleasant couple, who were a great help for our stay. It is a quirky type of place, paintings every where and antique type items everywhere and very nice family photos scattered around, and very... More

This bed and breakfast is ideal if you bring your dog, lovely grounds to walk in and a small woodland walk just outside the boundary of the house. We had planned a trip to Edinburgh Zoo with a visit to the Royal Yacht Brittania the following day. On both days the weather was scorching, however, we were allowed to leave... More

We stayed here twice, either side of a week's holiday further north in Scotland. The prioprieter, Jill, was good enough to let us keep the house key since she was goin to be out on our return trip and was good enough to phone us on our journey to make sure we were OK. The two rooms we had were... More

My wife, teen-age daughter and I stayed here for three nights during a 9-day trip to Ireland, Wales and Scotland. This was the highlight. What can we say? Jill, the proprietor, was very, very friendly. It's a beautiful manor home in a suburb of Edinburgh. Well-kept gardens on a hill overlooking the valley. We stayed in a very large master... More

Unfortunately we had to sneak out early to catch our plane, but our hostess was nice enough to leave juice, yogurt, and cereal for us). A lovely house with a beautiful large garden. Quiet and secluded. Comfortable and warm with a wonderful hot shower. Not much for eating within walking distance (not the B&Bs fault, of course. Just a heads... More

This B&B is in a quiet location but has the Kirknewton train station just a few minutes walk away. The owners were helpful, knowledgeable and accomodating. They let us keep the car parked after checkout when we went to Edinburgh for the day. Our breakfast was tasty and filling. It rained for our visit so we didn't use the tennis... More

My wife and I arrived late Thursday afternoon and were made very welcome by Jill,the owner. The setting is marvelous,the house set in its own grounds(which we were free to explore),affording you all the privacy you would want while still being only minutes from the village centre and the rail station and main roads. Breakfast is served in a wonderful... More
