The room had a four poster bed which was comfortable but you could not move in the bedroom. The shower was a trickle and the temperature of the water very erratic going from boiling hot to freezing cold. Breakfast was good but served only between 8 am and 9.30 am.

Haven't been here recently but have been here on different occasions for several years in a row with family and friends and can't wait to go back again. Jimmy & Fiona are excellent hosts and will make your Edinburgh stay that extra bit more special with fab rooms and a very, very, very scrumptious start of the day aka breakfast.... More

We were wary of the location of Glenalmond House - on the map it seemed so far away from Old Town but its really only a 20 minute walk and we ended up being glad we stayed in a more quiet and residential area. The guest house itself was very nice, but our first floor room was TINY!! The queen... More

We stayed three nights at the Glenalmond House. Our hosts were very helpful. It's a bit of a walk from the hotel to the Old Town, and depending on how far you go, farther back. We took a bus ride to the Highlands our third day there, arranged through the hotel. It was a scenic and memorable trip.

While the Glenalmond House may look far from the Royal Mile on a map, it's actually in a pretty great location. The Glenalmond House is on direct bus route to the Royal mile and it only take 5min by taxi. This B&B had the biggest rooms we stayed in while in the UK and offered a great breakfast in the... More

Four of us occupied two rooms for two nights at Glenalmond House. Our hosts were welcoming and extremely helpful as we explored Edinburgh. Off street parking was a plus as was the easy access to bus or taxi service. We took advantage of both. The house itself is lovely. Our room was snug, but adequate. We enjoyed the breakfast, and...

Well located about a mile from the main city centre attractions and with lots of bus connections as well. Off street parking much appreciated. Small but well outfitted room in impeccable condition. Very good breakfast and very friendly owner and staff. Eating and drinking recommendations very helpful.

We were met with a very warm welcome. The owner was very accommodating and would go out of his way to help you. The house is beautiful and very comfortable. The highlight was definitely the cooked breakfast. Edinburgh city centre is vibrant and full of entertainment. It's also a 15 minute walk from the B&B. We loved our stay here... More

We really enjoyed our 2 night stay here at Glenalmond. Its a lovely home and our hosts were very friendly and helpful Our room was comfy, and the breakfasts were great, especially the haggis. Located in a quiet neighborhood, but easy one mile walk to the Royal Mile. Very convenient bus stops located just a block from the B&B.

Excellent hotel - with distinctive furnishings and excellent service and food. Staff could not be more helpful. Were given a choice of room. No pressure to leave promptly - staff happily looked after our luggage until we were ready to return home. Would book in again and have no heitation to recommnd the facility.
