I really liked this place. The owner is super nice and its well located. We took the city bus to the Royal Mile and it picked us up and dropped us off almost right in front of the house. It was walking distance to a nice pub for a good dinner. Breakfast was fantastic. Only knock is that rooms are... More

I had seen good reviews of Abcorn Guest House on Trip Advisor and thought it would fit the bill for a reasonably priced overnight stay on our way north, and to be able to have a look at Edinburgh. It was easy to park, and although we arrived three hours before the booking in time of 3 o'clock, they were... More

Stayed two nights here as weed needed two beds. The owners did a great job of making us feel welcomed and were very helpful. The breakfast was very good and I had no problem sleeping on their bed. After a few days there recovering from jet lag we were ready to explore Scotland.

My mom and I stayed two days at the Abcorn Guest House, loved every minute of it. Grand house with early 19th century charm and character. The hosts are just as charming, very accomodating,quick to offer information about the city. There's a bus stop right outside their door to take you directly into the city for cheap cheap. The breakfast... More

We always stay at the Abcorn when we visit Edinburgh. Now that it has changed hands, we are STILL pleased with excellent location and service. Tony and his friendly smile is so welcoming. Anything you need and he is on it! The Abcorn is a brisk 20 minute walk from Princes Street or you can take a bus from the... More

We had a two night stay at the Abcorn Guest House. It was outstanding. The room was clean and spacious (though the floors were a bit creaky), the breakfast was outstanding, the service was outstanding. They helped us print boarding passes, call a taxi to the airport and even packed us sandwiches and snacks for our last morning, because we... More

I stayed at this B&B in a double room which was very comfortable and clean. There are tea and coffee facilities, a TV and en suite. I thought this was good value for money. However, we were told on arrival that breakfast was only served between 8-9am. As I was staying on a weekend and had been working all week... More
