We stayed here 4 nights in September 2016. It's about 1-1.5 miles from city center. Our room was on the small side. We had a larger one reserved but had to change dates, and the larger rooms were booked. Despite that, everything was nice, beautiful. Impeccable service. Ross, the proprietor, is friendly and helpful - gave us restaurant recommendations and... More

I stayed here two nights and it was well beyond my expectations, even though I had read that it was very special. My room was exquisitely beautiful, quiet and comfortable; it felt more like a country guest house. It was a different way of experiencing Edinburgh as it is slightly out of the center of town. Ross recommended a beautiful... More

I stayed at 23 Mayfield for one night whilst working in Edinburgh and I was not disappointed. I arrived and was greeted straight away by the owner who was very friendly. He walked me through the building (which is stunning) and explained the breakfast times and ordering process. He then gave me great information about local restaurants and how to... More

We stayed four nights and were absolutely blown away. Our room was spacious and had a super King-sized bed. Ross and his wife were great hosts and our every need was taken care of. The location is just a few steps from local busses heading downtown and within walking distance to great restaurants. The breakfasts were as phenomenal as everyone... More

Ross and family continue to excel at this very well situated guest house. Warm welcome, comfortable rooms and an always exceptional breakfast. A current highlight for me is his selection of heritage tomatoes.

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
