Such a great b&b, very friendly welcome. Off street parking is very secure, lovely area. I don't think I have ever stayed somewhere so clean. En-suite good size room. Breakfast was beautiful, all cooked to order. About 20min walk to Princess Street. Highly recommend and we will return

We stayed here for 2 nights to visit Edinburgh. We had a very nice, big and clean room. Great shower, good bed. Johnny took very good care of us, real hospitality. And he makes a great breakfast! About the location, it is in a nice neigbourhood, close to a shopping centre, 25 min walk to the centre of Edinburgh. 5... More

Blinkbonny was our first stay on our trip, we had a clean and spacious room. The shower was great. We thought we were the only couple there because it was so quiet. But at breakfast found out that it was a full house! The first night we walked right downtown, took about 20 mins. The next day we got a... More

We stayed at Blinkbonny House for three nights and chose it for its location, roughly equidistant from Edinburgh City Centre and Murrayfield. It's on a bus route which means getting into the city is easy and cheap, and we walked to Murrayfield. Shaun looked after us really well, and we felt like welcome guests in a family home. The room...

This must be the sweetest little B and B in Scotland. Shaun looked after us very well and was there in the background but never in the way. He made super breakfasts and had the best shower in the country. The weather outside was wet and windy but very cosy inside the house.

A lovely little B&B - spacious, clean and tasteful rooms and one of the best hot showers I've had anywhere! The hosts were fantastic - very friendly, helpful and accommodating, even given our late arrival time. Very homely. Perfect for our extended family weekend trip - I'd definitely recommend it.

We stayed at Blinkbonny House twice, at either end of our trip to the highlands. We had both upstairs rooms, which were comfortable and quiet, with a nice shared bath. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful, and Shaun was very hospitable and helpful. The location is nice if you want a quiet place on the outskirts of Edinburgh - we took... More

A very nice B&B and we love Shaun. So hospitable and helpful. Comfortable and clean accommodations. Would recommend to anyone visiting Edinburgh. Would suggest better lighting in the upstairs bathroom and perhaps an extra electrical outlet.

We so enjoyed our stay at Blinkbonny House in Edinburgh! This lovely, peaceful B&B on the edge of the city is ideally placed for getting away from the traffic and noise of the city and still close enough to go anywhere quickly and easily. We were grateful for the private bathroom (with shower) and very pleased that we couldn't hear... More

Blinkbonny is a nice B&B on the edge of Edinburgh. It is an easy 20minute walk back to the main part of town, or a short bus ride a few steps from the door. The hosts are very pleasant and helpful with information about how to get around, and where to visit. The accommodations were excellent, with a large private... More
