“Wonderful house, Wonderful hosts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2009

I have stayed here on 2 separate occasions and I would strongly recommend this B&B to you. It is in Morningside which is serviced by many different buses to Edinburgh city centre, however, the 20-25 minute walk to Princess Street was very nice, as well.
The breakfast is fantastic - if the season is right, many of the berries will be home-grown.
The rooms are very clean and the house is gorgeous.
Finally, the owners, Jill and Bob, are genuinely nice and gracious people who have lived there for many years, so are a wealth of information. It is wonderful to come back "home" after a day of adventure and put your feet up in front of the fire, have a cup of tea and some of the bread that Jill bakes, and unwind.

This is a wonderful B & B about 20 minute walk (and right on the 23 bus line) from Edinburgh Castle in the Morningside area.

The hostess, Jill, was spectacular. Great advice on things to see and how to get there. Her breakfast included homemade jam, hot croissants, fruit (mixed fresh berries) and cooked eggs, sausage, bacon, etc. - the best feast we had in Scotland and we stayed at 6 different B & Bs while touring around the country. There were a huge assortment of toiletries available in the shower room for guests use, and a blow dryer, fresh fruit, tea, and cookies in our room. There was even a new packaged toothbrush in the room in case we forgot one.

Her garden (kept by her husband) is lovely and is large with a walled garden that keeps it quiet even though it is near a main road. Their dog, an elderly black Lab named Ben, has an uncanny ability to know when people want to see or pet him - and stays quietly sleeping under the table when people don't want to see him. Very, very sweet and unobtrusive. The beds were very comfortable, even the small camp bed that my 18 year old son slept on.

If you want posh, fancy surroundings, this is not the place for you. But if you want kind, honest, and caring hosts in a homey setting with a comfortable bed and wonderful breakfast, then I highly recommend this to anyone staying in Edinburgh.
