Gerald and his wonderful establishment have to be in the very top rank of places to stay.
Abercromby Place is ideal for exploring Edinburgh, you can walk all through the centre of town very easily. His taste in internal decoration and art is superb and the facilities and accessories have been provided with great thought. For example Kate needed to sew on a button and, of course, needle and thread were already in the room. Maps, guides and a photobook of aerial views in a desk drawer, everything you could want in a bathroom cabinet, tv and dvd player, the list could go on and on, just tremendous. Gerald's advice on where to eat and what to see is encyclopaedic and accurate and the breakfasts are amazing. He makes his own bread and selections of muesli and the marmalade selection even includes lime and there are also jams and smoothies and... Breakfast is a delightfully social affair as you get to meet your fellow guests and exchange experiences and Gerald is great company without being intrusive.
Having stayed in many places over many years I can thoroughly recommend Gerald's Place as somewhere I felt very comfortable and welcomed and I would class it with the best in the world including apparent 5 star hotels.
