Staying at “23 Mayfield Boutique Guest House” was an amazing experience during our visit to Edinburg. This very elegant B&B is conveniently located near the Royal Mile. The bedrooms and bathrooms are spacious and confortable. Breakfasts are wonderful. We were welcomed by Ross, the owner and host, who was amazingly warm and looked into every detail to make our stay... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and it was wonderful. The hosts are so helpful, breakfast was delicious, and the location is great. Good restaurants in walking distance and a short taxi or bus to the Royal Mile. We would definitely stay here again on a return trip.

We stayed two nights and wish we could have stayed longer! The rooms were great and Ross and his family could not have been better hosts. Breakfast was the best meal of the day and I would highly encourage others to select the special each day! Thank you so much!

We stayed 2 nights, and we're really impressed. Ross and his team are great hosts. The rooms are spacious and the bathrooms as well. In a quiet area but close to town, bus line runs along the street put front. Breakfast was awesome, you make your choices the night before (with one "special" item available each day) and the food...

My husband and I stayed here for our anniversary, and it was simply fabulous. We had a warm welcome from the owners and were shown up to our exquisitely decorated room. Breakfast was served at our convenience each morning, and I've never had a hotel breakfast quite like it. The owners were very friendly and helpful, with lots of local... More

23 Mayfield is as stunning inside as it is outside. The owners are personable and enhanced our Edinburgh experience (gave us suggestions, drew maps on where to go). The breakfast food was a delight. Overall, exceptional experience and will definitely go back!

My son and I arrived mid-morning and Ross set us up with coffee and treats while our room was being prepared. Our twin room was small but comfortable and the breakfasts were wonderful - best coffee we had in the two weeks we spent travelling around Scotland. The city centre is easily reached on foot or by transit and there... More
