Everything in Pilrig House is 5 star! From the gracious and generous greeting to the first class amenities, this place shines. The rooms are so well appointed and every single detail is accounted for. One could not ask for cleaner, quieter and more serene surroundings within such close proximity to downtown Edinburgh. One feels transported back in time in this...

We were fortunate to stay in the Park Apartment for the month of August. Everything written by previous guests is true. Pilrig House is a wonderful place to stay and Philip and Debbie are amazing and are there to make a stay pleasurable. August is the month of Tattoo, International Festival, Fringe, Book Festival which makes it easy to do...

Rooms were great. Lots of amenities provided, We especially liked the whisky decanter and fresh fruit left. I needed to get scotch for a friend back home, Philip gave us plenty of information on the Whisky Society, and let us use their membership. Bussing to Edinburgh from here is a peach, there are so many bus options within a 2-5...

The apartment was so spacious, modern and spotlessly clean, supplied with everything one could possibly need or want. Debbie and Philip are wonderful hosts - very knowledgeable about the area/attractions & transportation. It is...

We stayed 7 night in the Garden Apartment at Pilrig House in May. It was lovely and so peaceful and quiet after our previous busy two weeks travelling in London and Edinburgh area. We found this historical home (Robert Louis Stevenson family - built in 1638) on the website and it was exactly as shown. The apartment was so spacious,...

We did our research and found this gem on our own. What a stroke of luck. The House is an historical site built in 1638 and has ties to the Balfour's and Robert Louis Balfour Stevenson (author of Treasure Island and Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde). Our Scottish hosts Debbie and Philip could not have been more gracious and accommodating....
