“Great Edinburgh new town B&B”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2012

I guess it's not really new town, probably a few hundred yards from the edge of new town proper, but we stayed there (4 of us - 2 adults, 2 little boys) and were impressed enough to come here and write this review!

Friendly, clean, cosy, warm, light, good food - even with our finicky diet!, quiet. Liked it a lot

Room Tip: Rooms 2 and 3 are at the back, ground floor - both lovely, light, clean, quiet, well-fitted out

I stayed 5 nights. McCrae's was within walking distance of everything I wanted to see in Edinburgh, but on a quiet street. There are lots of restaurants and pubs nearby. Breakfasts were very good. John met every request for information and help.

Room Tip: I had room 3 at the back of the house and it was very quiet -- the front may have had traffic noise.

Brilliant B&B, the room was lovely and spacious with a modern ensuite which even had wooden shutters for the windows for morning minimal light which was good for us and the breakfast was yummy:)) great attention to details and i liked the books in the room as an alternative to TV
John was very welcoming, informative (as this was our first time to Edinburgh) and helpful above & beyond which was much appreciated.
the B&B is in a very central location within easy reach of shops, bars, restaurants. i would definitely recommended this B&B to anyone who wants visit Edinburgh.
