“Comfy home from home in great Edinburgh location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2009

Spent 2 nights at Elgin Terrace with a friend when visiting Edinburgh on short break. Very friendly and helpful host made us feel very welcome. Lovely clean bright room and facilities. We were free to use the rest of the flat and enjoyed the terrace in the sun. Very relaxed breakfast - fresh fruit, cereals etc all laid out and ready when we were. Good location, within easy reach of most Edinburgh sights especially Holyrood and Arthurs Seat. Would definately return here!

We received excellent service from the word go with the owner-professional yet friendly she made us feel immediately at home!The flat was very clean and tidy with everything you require available near at hand!With a lovely balcony and pleasant view the flat is very calming and relaxing. Its in a good location being outside the busy centre of Edinburgh but with plenty of transport links to it. Would definately visit again!

In a quiet street , delightful and unpretending flat. You immediately feel wellcomed. Near the historic center of Edinburgh that you can easily enjoy with the precious indications of the host. Confortable bed and all is clean and pleasant. Nothing to blame for.

I didn't know I had a cousin in Edinburgh - well I haven't, but it felt very much like it, staying at Fiona's B&B. Lovely private flat, easily within walking distance from any sights in Edinburgh. Super bed! All very clean.

Fiona is a lovely and friendly host and the room was lovely. The view over the park is great from the terrace balcony and it is a great location for getting into town! I would definitely recommend.
