Excellent location walking distance to all restaurants, pubs, shops, transportation and museums. Rooms and bathrooms are tidied up very clean and neat daily. It feels like you go back in Victorian time, staying as a guest. High ceiling, warm heater in winter, newly renovated bathroom. Continental breakfast was served with excellent service. Lady M serves you coffee and toasts personally...

Great location. Nice clean room. Morag was lovely and very helpful. Found our room quite noisy and parking was very expensive. Good if you dont have a car. Apart from that it was an excellent stay especially leading up to christmas

Great location, great service from two ladies who dealt with us. Slightly noisy re bottle bins being emptied from nearby bars. Rooms large and roomy, only slight issue as toilet cistern took ages to fill ( room 15). Hence only 4 stars and not the 5 Breakfast basic but great value for what we paid.. Would definitely return thanks.

I chose this guest house with a few things in mind, I needed a safe place for one night and not in an extremely busy area but conveniently within distance of attractions and the bus station. This place did both. I arrived at 11:45am after walking around the National portrait gallery, my room wasn't ready, understandable as check in is...

My friend and I stayed here for the weekend and it met all of our needs, we had a lovely spacious twin room, the continental breakfast was lovely with a great selection. The staff were were very friendly and helpful. I don't usually choose guesthouses when travelling, but my experience here has convinced me to try some more.

Stayed here in February. What a lovely guest house. Room was amazing, it was huge and well decorated to a modern standard. Tea/ coffee making facilities. Nice ensuite bathroom. Central and within walking distance to all tourism places in Edinburgh. Parking was difficult and we had to park in a multi story about a 25 minute walk away. Breakfast was...

I visit Edinburgh often for working purposes and tried this B&B this time. I stayed 2 nights and spent most of my time out. It is clean and offer a great location (Airlink and tram to the airport at 5mins walk. Shops, restaurants and old town very close). I would say its location and the price are its big advantages....

My parents stayed there for 2 nights when visiting me in Edinburgh. The tenants were very nice, though my parents could not speak English very well. The tenants invited me to stay for breakfast with my parents for free even if I did not rent any room (I had my own flat). Breakfast was very nice. The room was very...

Staying in New Town

Neighborhood Profile
New Town
Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town, until after dark when strappy dresses come out to play. This is the city’s central business district with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric squares, and self-important statues. But it’s also a very wanderable neighborhood, with a healthy bustle at almost any time of day and fine people-watching in places like St Andrew's Square which fills with picnickers around lunch. You’ll also find a series of cheerful basement bistros on Hanover Street, while dark Rose Street has something of the feel of an undiscovered back alley and is chock-full of characterful pubs and small independent shops.
