We first stayed here just over a year ago and I am very pleased to say that on returning, it is just as perfect as the first time. This is the most amazing place you could wish to stay in - the breakfast still hits the spot every morning and sets you up for the day; the accommodation is still... More

This is a great family owned and run B&B. The rooms are very nice and the breakfasts delicious. The owner - Ross - is most helpful and cordial. We very much enjoyed our two night stay. The location of 23 Mayfield is excellent for those reliant on public transportation. There are numerous buses that run by going directly to the... More

This house was built in the 1860's and oozes with Victorian charm and elegance. Rich mahogany and Chesterfield leather are just a couple of the wonderful touches that Ross has incorporated into the design of this beautiful boutique hotel. Ross, by the way, is delightfully charming on his own. He is so friendly and helpful. He truly makes one feel... More

Ross was extremely helpful in informing us of the area attractions, means of transportation, restaurants to visit and shopping areas. The location is ideal, within walking distance to the Royal Mile and Edinburgh Castle and many excellent restaurants. A big plus is that parking is included. The breakfasts were exceptional. The common room was comfortable with an honour system for... More

Stay from a Friday through to Saturday for a wonderful weekend in Edinburgh. This is the only place I have ever stayed where I could not fault a thing. A truly amazing place and the best breakfast you will ever find in a hotel or a B&B!

Yes, we have stayed at over 100 B&B's in the UK over our past 3 holidays to the UK so we believe we are in an ideal position to judge the BEST B&B in the UK. 23 Mayfield scores full points in every respect. Firstly, this is a return visit. Ross greeted us on arrival and although he surely could... More

This B&B is a beautiful, well-appointed 19th century house in a nice, quiet neighborhood. It's about a 20-minute walk to the Royal Mile, which we enjoyed taking every day. But if you don't want to walk, the bus line runs right past the house and there's a stop very close by. We stayed in the Grand Jacobean room, which has... More
