My adult daughter and I stayed here in May for 4 nights. This is a beautiful gem of a B&B, with a gracious, friendly hostess and lovely decor. Our twin room looked directly out onto Arthurs Seat which was wonderful to look out on first thing in the morning. We had comfy beds and everything was spotless. The street was quiet and is set in a nice neighborhood, where one felt safe to walk through in the evening. Breakfast was a variety of fresh fruit, toast, cereal and joghurt, as well as coffee and tea. The entire house is decorated with a lot of care and attention and with lots of antiques.
The location is easy to get to by bus or by walking down the Royal Mile. It is only a 10 min. walk from Holyrood Palace and the Scottish Parliament. To Waverly Station, it is about a 30 min. walk up the Royal Mile.
We thouroughly enjoyed our stay there and hope to return there soon. I would highly recommend Elderfields Guesthouse to anyone looking for a warm, friendly atmosphere in a cosy and charming B&B..
