We only stayed one night but all in all the standard was very high. The property was very clean, the breakfast excellent and was situated an easy walk into the city centre. The next time we are visiting Edinburgh we will certainly be staying at the Conifers.

We arrived at this hotel for a girly weekend away and was welcomed with a warm reception and a very Christmassy front room which definitely got us in the Christmas spirit. The location is superb, walking distance from the centre, or alternatively a cheap bus/taxi fare away. The room was big and had a double bed and a single bed.... More

Had the absolute pleasure of staying at this stunning b&b. Would recommend without hesitation. Fantastic central location and we were made to feel so welcome by the owners Liz and Dave.
