We could only stay two nights in Edinburgh and chose 23 Mayfield based on the other reviews here. We could not have been more pleased with our decision.
Ross is one of the most genuinely friendly people we have ever met and the fact that he was a runner up for UK's friendliest host was not at all surprising.
Our room was the Premier Jacobean, complete with beautiful antiques, 4 poster canopy bed, 17th century prints and a well appointed modern marble ensuite.
The Bose stereo was softly playing classical music when we checked into our room - now that's attention to detail!
The food at breakfast was fabulous, as was the service.
Regarding other reviews complaining about having to order food for a prescribed time the next morning - that is pretty standard throughout the UK, and elsewhere. Innkeepers do this to make sure they have the freshest food available and time breakfast so they can have a life. We've never found this to be off-putting because we are up early and ready to seize the day when travelling.
But honestly we prefer bnb's to hotels any day, and 23 Mayfield was a sumptuous delight for the senses.
Go ahead, splurge!
