We first met Gordon when we arrived and we've never met such a lovely, genuine gentleman. We had a wonderful surprise in our room when we arrived for which my Mum, in particular, was very happy about as we are visiting Edinburgh for the first time and celebrating her birthday. The guesthouse and it's owners are wonderful, welcoming, homely and...

Really nice building and room, with great links in to the city (there's a choice of about 20 buses running all times of day which take 10 mins into city centre). The most important part of a B&B to me are the hosts, and they were fantastic, super friendly, helped us out when we needed a super late check in,...

Absolutely wonderful stay! Room was comfortable, clean and tended to each day. The caretakers were friendly and thoughtful. Breakfast was excellent, with plenty of options for fresh food that was made to order and served hot. The location is not in the heart of Edinburgh, but it is convenient to get to the Royal Mile and Holyrood Park by either...

Breakfast was cooked to order and was very good and plentiful (tho must admit I much prefer Irish sausage to Scottish...

This is an absolute gem. Everything is clean, well maintained, and charming. We happened to be the only people in the b&b during our stay, so we had the house to ourselves. The individually prepared breakfasts were delicious. They even gave us a togo breakfast on the morning we were leaving for the airport! Overall, a great place to stay!...
