I stayed for 3 nights overall at 23 Mayfield in October 2010. I'd stayed in Ross Bernie's previous B&B, the Aonach Mor, and so was really happy to have the opportunity to stay at his new B&B. I wasn't disappointed! Ross has pulled out all stops to make 23 Mayfield a super location from which to enjoy Edinburgh and surrounding area.
The B&B is in a great location and within easy walking distance (15 minutes or so) of the Royal Mile. You can also catch the bus quite easily if you prefer, but I'd recommend the walk as you get to see some great shops and restaurants on the way. From 23 Mayfield you can also see Arthur's Seat and if you fancy have a wee walk or run up the side of the extinct volcano.
The rooms at 23 Mayfield are superbly decorated and marvelously comfortable and the bathrooms are sybaritic. Ross has restored the building to its previous glory and you will have a great time looking at the stained glass windows, the plaster decorations, as well as get a real feel for the life of Victorian gentry in the dining room and lounge. The breakfast at 23 Mayfield is 1st rate and world class and Ross is a superb chef. My favorite is his salmon and scrambled eggs, but there are other extraordinary options available as well.
I had a wonderful stay at 23 Mayfield and am looking forward to enjoying another visit soon!
