This has been one of the greatest B&B experience of our life. Gerald gave an exquisite, personal touch to our stay. Everything was extreme enjoyable, from the delicious breakfast to our discussions with Gerald and the comfort of the accommodation. We are already planning to celebrate ASAP victory over COVID-19 with a new visit to Edinburgh by Gerald’s.

The best location and beautiful house in The New Town created an authentic residential experience. Conveniently situated enabling me to walk to all my destinations. Gerald is a very kind gentleman and the perfect host. The very special cooked to order full breakfast is a great way to start the day. Countless offerings guarantee you'll find some of your favorite foods. Gerald can help with insider tips on all the sites and how to navigate the city. My suite had all the the amenities imaginable and was most comfortable. All booking details were easy to arrange and communication was always very prompt. I plan on going back soon and no need to look any further than Gerald's Place. Enjoy!

We surprised Gerald with a call 4 ours before we arrived in Edinburgh and we had no booking made.He was very understanding of our situation and helped us with a room at his place. Little did we know that we were going to have so good time staying at his place. He is an excellent host and guided us through our stay. His house is the perfect to explore the city and feel the real Scottish life. We had one of our best weekends and we hope to come back as soon as possible.

Gerald's Place is my favorite place to stay in my favorite city (in the best location) in my favorite country - with my favorite host, Gerald, who makes my favorite breakfasts and treats me like a Queen. Everyone who has stayed there with me loves Gerald and his cozy place, too. It is seriously well-placed in a beautiful, quiet and safe area, yet walking distance to almost everywhere you will want to go (and the perfect distance to the tram stop, buses, trains, etc.) to make your comings and goings easy, too. Great nearby restaurants for when you just hit town after a long flight. And a host that can fill you in on what you'd like to know about the town and area. I am serious - I wouldn't even consider staying anywhere else and I can't wait to return to Gerald's Place. (Maybe I should keep this to myself!) Thanks, Gerald, for your contribution to my happy vacations!
