“Just Perfect!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2011

A home away from home! Very kind and friendly hosts. Room very clean and tidy. Great breakfast. Great location just 10-15mns walk to city center. Many nice restaurants around. We loved it! Already recommended the Mingalar to my friends and they loved it too.
Highly recommended and would definitely go back in the future.

Very well located in central Edinburgh THE MINGALAR is a B&B owned by a very friendly and trustfull couple. We were four adults and we have stayed in a confortable and spacious family room. Good breakfast . The pictures in the guesthouse site din't do the actual thing a lot of justice. the reality is better them the galery.

We have spent 2 nights there and we were very happy with everything. It has everything you may and may not expect from normal B&B. There was a small kitchen, so you can prepare small meals to save your pocket money for your shopping. It locates in a nice and quiet residential area not far from the centre, about 15 min walk passing a nice park. So if you are looking for a nice place to stay away from busy city centre (but with a reach of centre whenever you like), this is one of the best place you are looking for, trust me :)

Hotel was very neat and tidy. Ambiance was particularly elegant.
we found the room comfortable and equipped with all amenities. Hospitality was very good. Location wise, Its just 10- 15 min. walk from city center and there are plenty of restaurants around so good location.

A great B&B in the cirty center of Edinburgh, with private parking, internet access and/or stational computer to be used by guests. Nice room with en-suite bathroom, phenomenal breakfast with a nice Italian coffee machine, cooked Scottish breakfast with Porridge/haggis, cornflakes, fresh fruits, bacon & eggs, mushrooms, tomato, ...
all very friendly, clean, very service oriented and in walking distance of all major Edinburgh attractions.

We have been provided with lots of tips, city maps and very nice explanations about where to may go to, where to park ... Rated as a three star B&B by the Scottish tourist info.
