Really enjoyed this B&B and the people in it. We're super nice despite being busy with the 10 rooms they had running. The view from room 10 was amazing. The food was fantastic. The location was close enough to the bustle but far enough to escape it. Would 100% recommend this place and will keep it on the radar for... More

After flying from Dublin to Edinburgh, my husband and I felt right at home.Although we were only here one night, we would have loved to have stayed longer if not for previous booked places around Scotland. The owners were fantastic and very helpful when it came to getting around the city and seeing the sights we wanted to see before... More

Very good quiet location. 25 minute walk to all downtown sites. The pre-arrival package from the owners outlining local restaurants, attractions and public transit was very helpful. Thank you for an excellent start to our Scottish vacation. Glenn and Sheila Whitman

The B&B is eclectic & a lovely combination of Lydie's French heritage combined with touches of Scotland throughout . Clean & comfortable & a delicious breakfast... More

What a great place to stay!!! From the moment of our arrival, Lydie was a joy, making our stay wonderful. She's very helpful and also fun to be around. Our room on the top floor had views of Edinburgh Castle and Firth of Forth - defintely ask for that room unless you dislike stairs. The B&B is furnished with exceptional... More

My husband and I spent 3 nights here and it was perfect! It is really convenient to walk to the Royal Mile and attractions and to great restaurants.

We stayed at Lydie's and David's house for four nights and really enjoyed it. Especially the breakfast offering many veggie possibilities. And I loved our room - room 2, ground floor, large and comfortable with a king size bed and sofa. And the lovely colors! To me, Albyn townhouse is the perfect location for a city trip: we could easily... More

We spent four days exploring Edinburgh with Albyn Townhouse as our home base. Lydie and David are exceptional hosts and provided wonderful hospitality. Albyn is located in a quiet neighborhood near convenient bus lines with quick access into the heart of the city. But, you can get away from the noise and enjoy feeling like a local. There are wonderful... More
