Pilrig house is a lovely older manor house situated within a small enclave of houses and backing onto the lovely Pilrig Park. I stayed in the one bedroom Garden Flat which was extremely well laid out and quite spacious. The flat was absolutely spotless and believe me I am extremely fussy. You want for nothing whilst staying here. A decanter of whisky, a fruit bowl, biscuits , coffee, tea, chocolates and milk are left awaiting your arrival. There are plenty of towels, soaps and luxury bathroom products. A full complement of travel size notions are left for your use. In the cupboard you will find a picnic blanket, flask and lunch cooler. Perfect for a picnic at the park. The flat is about a 25 - 30 minute walk from downtown Edinburgh. Travel time will alter as you get to know the area and are able to start taking short cuts. Debbie is an absolute treasure and can't imagine anyone more suitable to act as your host and local fount of knowledge. The flat is amazingly well stocked with DVD's and travel guides and books. It's about a £5-7 taxi trip from town depending on traffic.
Can't recommend Pilrig House highly enough. I never generally bother with reviews figuring that what one person may enjoy another won't. However I can't see anything that anyone could fault about this establishment, except for one important thing, you won't want to leave. Thank you again Debbie for making a single female traveller feel so welcome, so respected and so secure
