Abercorn enlightened us to staying near the sea when visiting Edinburgh. 5-10 min walk away, Portobello is a great beach is end any day. There are pubs and eateries overlooking the sea. Children and dogs running about the beach and the smell and sight of the sea. Abercorn itself is a large quaint house with beautiful rooms and dinning area.... More

The Accomodation is just 2 minutes walk from the beach, 5 minutes by car from City Centre of Edinburgh. It's a big house with a nice garden. The room is large and the bathroom is good. The breakfast is good too. The owner is a lady very nice and friendly and it's a pleasure to speak with her.

Angela and Will make you very welcome and are keen for you to make the most of your visit. The elegant accommodation is very comfortable and clean, and the breakfasts will take... More

We had Room 8 on the ground floor, which looks out to the car park. The en-suite room is good sized. The accomodation is very clean and well appointed. We were welcomed by Angela who provided tea and biscuits. Breakfast was very nice. Parking is in the street, but there are many available spaces.

Whenever I go to Edinburgh Abercorn is my first choice. The rooms are beautiful and beds so comfy. Warm and spacious with original features. Breakfast at Abercorn is better than a 5 star hotel. Top quality produce and lovely hot plates! Angela is the perfect host and is always so welcoming.
