We stayed for 2 nights at this B&B. Duncan & Elaine made us feel right at home. Our room & ensuite were comfortable, large and very clean. The breakfast every morning was delicious. We just caught a bus into the city from the high street and there is a shopping centre right across the street. Parking was available at the... 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. We stayed in 'Ness', which... More

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.

Good value place to stay, excellent cooked breakfast, close to bus routes into city centre. Another good stay at Glendale House. Room has flat screen TV, very clean, had room at the back, very quiet. Given how cold it was outside - snow , windchill, room was well heated and warm.

Our room was clean, comfortable, and spacious. The house is beautiful, and the hosts are warm and friendly. The parking was super convenient, and rare! This was our first stop in Scotland, and I didn't realize parking was such a premium. The private gated parking lot at Glendale is not the norm. The breakfast was delicious and filling. We didn't...
