Perfectly located in New Town opposite Queen Street gardens, just a brief walk from the city centre, this beautiful period home is a wonderful B&B option with a personal touch. I stayed in a spacious twin bedroom which is very comfortable and well appointed with a desk, large wardrobe and chest of drawers and has views of New Town rooftops right to the Firth of Forth.

Staying at the Stevenson house truly made our few days in Edinburgh a memorable, wonderful experience. The MacFie family were truly fantastic hosts and we loved getting to know them and learning from them about Edinburgh and the house. Our young kids were entranced by our lovely hosts and their home. We would highly recommend this to anyone who wants a truly special travel experience.

Our family stayed at The Stevenson House towards the end of our holiday to Scotland. Without doubt it was a major highlight of our stay. The Macfies were such kind, warm and generous hosts. We felt so happy and comfortable in their magical home and our little children were not just welcomed but made to feel special. We learnt so much about Edinburgh from our hosts - it was an enchanting and beautiful place to stay - thank you Macfie family for the privilege of staying in your incredible home - 5 stars to you!
