After four nights in a cramped hotel room in London, our front-facing room at Elderfields was palatial! At first we were a little worried we weren't in the right place because there's no obvious "guesthouse" sign in the front and it's located on a quiet, residential street, but Maureen greeted us at the door with a warm welcome. She serves... More

Pretty good location for exploring Edinburgh on foot! Quaint / Lovely old fashioned and well maintained B&B run by a lovely old lady! Fantastic breakfast! Great fruit spread! Cold meats and cheese and toast, fresh coffee - just lovely! Plenty of character!

Nice owner. My mom seemed to connect with her about some art stuff. Easy parking for our rental car but super long walk to the Royal Mile. If you don't plan to use the bus be sure to plan on this long walk!

We visited Elderfields Guest House last winter and had a great time. The Guest House is located near the base of the Royal Mile and very close to Holyrood Palace. We were able to walk almost anywhere. I was visiting with two friends and we stayed in the three person room on the top floor. The room was very clean... More

What a lovely place to spend our last 2 nights in the UK. We arrived in Edinburgh much earlier than anticipated and took the chance to stop by the guesthouse early to unload our bags and park the car. Maureen received us graciously.

I inquired for 7 nights and got offered a special rate "stay 7, pay six" which I gladly accepted. Elderfields Guest House is on a quiet little street, 15 minutes on food from Holyrood Palace and 5 minutes on foot from all major bus lines.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Elderfields is situated in one of Edinburgh's residential areas and is a fine example of early Victorian architecture. The Elderfields Guest House was built around 1850 and is tucked away opposite the picturesque Queens Park and Holyrood Palace and close to the bottom of the Royal Mile. Princes Street is just a 15/20 minute walk away, with Edinburgh Castle dominating the local skyline. The Elderfields Guest House really couldn't be more convenient for visitors wanting to fully experience Edinburgh at its historic and vibrant best. ... more   less
