We've had an amazing stay for the last 3 nights at Ben Cruachan bed and breakfast. Jackie is so warm and welcoming, this is truly a home away from home. Gorgeous rooms, comfortable beds and great company. We will be sad to say goodbye and we will miss the fantastic breakfasts!

Superb breakfast, plenty of it,would recommend the porridge! Host was lovely, very helpful, gave us rugs to keep warm when we went to Edinburgh Tattoo!! Lots of helpful information.

Ben Cruachan is a first class Guest House and we could not fault it in any way. Jackie is a very welcoming and accommodating host. The room and public areas are spotlessly clean. The decor is pristine. The bed was exceptionally comfortable. The towels were lovely and soft. There was a range of toiletries available. Jackie has thought of many... More

We had a great stay at Ben Cruachan B&B. Welcoming hosts, helpful and very kind. Great breakfast. Lovely room with a comfy bed. Walking distance to the New and Old Town, great bars and restaurants nearby. Everything was crisp and sparkling clean. We would definitely come again. Thanks.

We stayed in the double room (with an extra bed fitted in) for two nights. The room was clean and well-equipped, coming with toiletries and a delicious decanter of sherry. All the beds (including the extra!) were extremely comfortable. Additionally, I felt that key attractions near to and in the city centre were walkable from the hotel's location. Jackie was... More

To state that our stay was enjoyable is understating the case. Our accommodations were clean and comfortable, the delicious breakfast was a welcome start to each day and, above all, the friendliness of Jackie, Kim and George will not be forgotten. Many thanks to them for their gracious hospitality!

My wife and I enjoyed our 5 night stay in June 2016. We had a very quiet ground floor room overlooking the back garden. The room was spacious and clean. My wife enjoyed the sherry provided in our room and I enjoyed the scotch in the decanter down the hall! Jackie is a wonderful host who quickly became a good... More

I stayed at this property for 2 nights and it definitely deserves its 4 star rating. The property is situated in the Georgian New Town area and it's only about 10-15 walk from Princes Street. The property is beautifully furnished and everything you need is provided for. Breakfast is a delight with several local options including the best porridge I... More

My wife and I had a wonderful stay over the past weekend. The room was so comfortable and homely we didn't want to leave. Breakfast was very tasty and fresh. The owners were so friendly and gave us so many good tips to really explore Edinburgh to its full potential.
