“Beautiful, comfortable, gracious home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

This was my second stay at Florence's lovely home, and this time I brought my 17 and 14 year old grandchildren to explore Edinburgh. Florence was welcoming, gracious, and very helpful with suggestions and advice about the sights of Edinburgh. Our room was beaufiful and ample for the three of us, and Florence was a delightful hostess. Our view was lovely, and each breakfast was so delicious and filling that we were not hungry again until late afternoon. Florence gave us her key to the private park so that we could walk amongst its beauty and along the Water of Leith to the Museum of Modern Art. My grandchildren were as pleased with our accommodations as I was. We highly recommend Florence's home.

I stayed with Florence Shanks at 11 Moray Place for a full week in August, having come to Edinburgh to do research on adaptations of Shakespeare plays at the main Festival and the Fringe. If it hadn't been for Florence's advice about navigating the city, I never would have accomplished so much. (Her house is conveniently located at walking distance from the city centre.) At the ends of long days, it was wonderful to return to my immaculate and comfortable room, and to prepare for the next part of the schedule. I should add that breakfast was always a pleasure, not only because of its quality and range of choice, but also because of the delightful people I met who were also Florence's guests.

Room Tip: Anyone who has difficulty climbing stairs should request a room on the second floor.

Staying in this marvellous Georgian house for the Fringe Festival was a real treat.
The comfortable 2 bedroomed suite at the top of the house served us well (as relatives - one couple and one single person) and the view from these bedrooms - and from the en suite bathroom's shower - to the Firth of Forth each morning was terrific.
Breakfasts were splendid and generous, which meant we didn't need to eat again until dinner time. Florence is a terrifically knowledgable and helpful 'landlady' who recommended the new Picasso exhibition - which otherwise we would not have seen. The house is quiet, clean and very convenient for all of Edinburgh's sights and shopping and we all slept very well each night. Have only good thing to say about this place! Do try it... Alison

Room Tip: The house is a tall town house, in a quiet setting, but no elevator, If you don't want to climb...

Stayed with Florence for the first weekend of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. It is difficult to encapsulate the warmth, comfort and atmopshere of this beautiful dwelling in a review; it kind of needs to be experienced to appreciate the wonderfulness of this home. I say home because
it felt like home but with the charm of the 1800's. The bed was like a cloud! The furniture like a visit to an antiques treasure trove. Breakfast was incredible; sitting on this fabulous table being served the most lovely food whilst using the most beautiful china and silver really was something else. We were sad to leave Florence as she made us feel so at home. If you want accomodation that is chain like and clinical this is not the place. If however you want to visit Edinburgh as the city it is; quaint and steeped in history then A Georgian Residence is for you. Thank you Florence and some wonderful guests for making our trip memorable. It would not feel right to visit again and stay anywhere
else.

See you soon Amanda & Heath

We stayed few days at this beautiful residence in Edinburgh. It is full of history and old charm. Florence is a great host. The location is perfect. The gardens are beautiful. It is very quiet but close to all main attractions. We highly recommend this place.

Lovely Georgian house....about 10 minute walk to the main streets....the room was large and very clean, great ensuite too. The landlady couldn't do enough for us, she told us about the history of this particular building, gave us keys to the private park, helped with directions to local bus station, etc. I became ill and she arranged an appointment with a doctor, booked the taxi and told me where to fill my prescription! It is in a quiet, safe part of the city. The breakfasts were great, lots of choices and served in a beautiful Georgian dining room. I would definitely stay here again and enthusiastically recommend it to any Edinburgh visitors.

We originally stayed for 2 nights but we returned shortly afterwards to end our holiday in Scotland as this was such a beautiful place to stay , close to the centre of Edinburgh. The rooms are larger than average with the usual facilities plus some thoughtful extra touches. The breakfast is excellent and served in a lovely period dining room. Nothing is too much trouble for the landlady. We have no hesitation in recommending this as a place to stay.
