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.

My mother and I stayed here for 3 nights. Definitely the best place I stayed at the entire time I traveled through Scotland. Naomi was a very welcoming host with a ton of knowledge of the city. Breakfast every morning was delicious and substantial. The house itself was very clean and had a wonderful look to it. It was an older house but that's what gave it it's charm. Will definitely try and stay here again when I visit next.

My daughter and I stayed recently for 4 nights in this lovely house. Large airy room and a large private bathroom outside room. Naomi is a gracious host and rang taxis for us and provided lots of information and suggestions for us about Edinburgh. Very nice breakfast. You will feel safe and looked after here.

We have been staying for a few years now on and off and it has always been the most wonderful experience. Naomi and Martin's home is beautiful as already mentioned and in a fabulous location for exploring the New Town and Old Town as well as Stockbridge which is lovely and along the Water of Leith. It is also well placed for tram, train and bus links for further afield and rich with places of interest and beauty. Naomi and Martin are perfect hosts. Warm and welcoming making you feel truly at home. They make visiting Edinburgh very special. The delicious breakfast sets you up for the day. Cereals, fruit, yogurt and cooked Scottish. The beds comfortable and rooms bright spacious with plenty of storage and complimentary tea, coffee and hot chocolate. We love staying and will definitely be back for another fix! Tip: Cramond is lovely and worth a visit, the walk to the Shore from Stockbridge for seafood is fabulous (the Ship on the Shore is good), Kays Bar in Jamaica Street is great and off the beaten track!

The welcome at this edinburgh new town b& b is second to none. If you have problems with stairs then this may not be for you. But if you like superb breakfasts, cooked to order, great art in your room , good books to choose form during the evening or, best of all, people who are enthusiastic about the city in which they live then this is for you.
