“Just loved it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2005

Having stayed in 5 B&B's in Scotland on this Holiday this was the best. Sept 23, 24
Although we were treated like guest's in the "Ardmour house", we always felt at home and comfortable.Robin was readily available is you needed anything.
The food was lovely and presented well ,lots to choose from for breakfast, house was clean and soft comfortable music broke any uncomfortable silence(not that there was any).
The Bus can be found right outside your door or you can walk up to Princes Street in about 15 mins but dont forget to take in Leith walk , there is so much to do in that area.
If you want to walk or jog in the morning there is Pilrig park right across the street and it is beautiful.
Did I mention they have the most comfortable beds in the world, and then there is Lola the "Lady schnauzer" who will fullfill your need if you are missing your own dog.
Thank you Robin, Colin and Lola

Ardmor House is a beautifully renovated Victorian guesthouse with extremely good interior decoration. The service my boyfriend and I received was impeccable, I would have loved to have stayed longer if it wasn't for the fact that we were on our way around Scotland. The room we stayed in was perfect (photo attached): clean, bright and with character. Breakfast was fantastic and I recommend the scrambled eggs and smoked salmon!

This place is a must for anyone visiting Edinburgh. It's not the cheapest, but not the most expensive either. It's just perfect.

My husband and I stayed here during our week-long stay in Edinburgh. We felt like this was a home away from home. Our room was large and very comfortable (we did request the largest room at the time we made the reservation). Everything was clean, of course, and beautifully decorated. Our hosts had a wonderful visitors' guide in our room that included everything from restaurant and attraction recommendations, to very detailed and helpful instructions on how to set the alarm clock!

Breakfasts were wonderful - the scrambled eggs and smoked salmon was to die for! The breakfast room was perfect with classical music playing and a selection of newpapers to read. It was a great start to the day, and Robin was on hand with suggestions and tips that were extremely helpful. He was very accommodating in every way, making sure that we had a taxi when we needed one, or recommending where to get a good curry for dinner.

We couldn't really afford to stay in the nice hotels there, but we found Ardmor House to be the perfect alternative to staying in inexpensive motels or inns. We thought it was a very good value for the price. Our stay couldn't have been nicer. We would happily return any time!

I spent two nights of my 11-day journey through the UK at Ardmor house, and they were the most comfortable of all. My rooms was generously-sized, with a very comfortable bed and moder, clean en-suite bathroom and shower. The breakfasts were delicious, and host Robin was gracious and knowledgeable. Located just about a mile from the center of town, we walked everywhere, and there is a bus stop just outside the door. A fantastic room at a great rate.
