Beautiful house. Our room was on the second floor facing the back so was very quiet. Bed very comfortable and everything was spotless and luxurious. Excellent breakfast and enjoyed Duncan's banter at breakfast. You can find cheaper B&B in the same area but Glendale was worth the bit extra and would highly recommend it.

I stayed once in 2011 and again in 2016. The location is not great, as in you may get woken up by traffic, but otherwise, the place is excellent. The property (as much of Mayfield) is full of character, with wonderful garden and a wide variety of period features. Unlike in 2011, the place looks very lovingly maintained, with all... More

I stayed at Glendale House for four nights when I went to various Edinburgh Festival events. My room (Lomond) was spacious and quiet. Good shower and excellent breakfasts. Duncan and Elaine are gracious hosts. The house is opposite Cameron Toll shopping centre which has a decent size Sainsbury's along with a selection of high street shops. It's a 45 minute... More

We arrived very late due to travel problems but our hosts were very understanding and helpful and when we eventually arrived made us feel very welcome. The house is beautiful with a rose garden in front and lovely Scottish decor throughout. We were very comfortable in... More

Stayed at the Glendale in Edinburgh for three nights. We were made very welcome by Duncan & Elaine. Very quiet location and a lovely spacious room. Breakfast was always looked forward to. Two miles from the City centre. So much to do not enough time.

We really enjoyed our stay at Glendale House.The B&B is about 2 miles from the city centre, but the walk in is very easy and pleasant, and if you prefer not to walk there are also regular, cheap buses into the city which you can catch from just a few yards away from the B&B.

This is a lovely guesthouse, very close to the University campus. Although for turists it may be far from town. The owners (Duncan and Elaine) really make you feel home. Nice room and breakfast, I particularly recommend the porridge.

A very nice place in Edinburgh ! Not in the city center, quiet, but very near either by walking or by bus. The owners are really charming persons, alway ready to make you enjoy better your stay in Edinburgh. Very good Scottish breakfasts. Definitely a very good place, we will re-book there, if coming back to Edinburgh.

Very nice and clean place. Original Scottish decoration framed by the smell of liliums. The provided breakfast could satisfy everyone. Very convenient place for visiting KBs or Edinburgh in general. A big supermarket is nearby.
