“Amazing B&B in Edinburgh!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2013

My hubby and I stayed at this amazing B&B in July. I can't say enough positive comments about it. Elaine, the host and owner of Two Hillside Cresent, greeted us to a huge room decorated with superb taste and high- end decor. The king size bed was surrounded by a beautiful wardrobe with fluffy bathrobes, writing desk & chair, a fireplace, sofa, coffee table and 2 side chairs ( no Ikea furnishings here). A large striking chandler finished off the room with at least 16 ft high ceiling! The bath also was huge, with separate large rainfall shower and giant soaking tub. This ammenity was so welcomed after a long day of touring beautiful and historic Edinburgh!
Breakfast was "made to order...no buffet here". On the last morning (and after eating eggs every morning) I asked if an egg white omelet was possible. The cute, pleasant, rather shy 'waitress' said she didn't know but would ask! And alais! I was served a perfect one!
The absolute only negative we had of our 2 week visit of England and Scotland was... It was much warmer than we anticipated. None of the B&B
we stayed in didn't have AC. Neither did 2 out of 3 hotels.
Since we left our Texas temperature of mid 90s, we so wanted to enjoy cooler temps, but alais! , Great Britian was experiencing the beginning of their, first in a long time, actual SUMMER!!
We returned to Houston the week before the birth of the Royal Baby, so the heat wave was well documented by the news!
Obviously, I am recommending this B&B most highly!!

This is a wonderful B&B with a fabulous owner, Elaine, and staff who went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable! We highly recommend it! Location is just off a major street but is quiet and comfortable - in luxury. Rooms are spacious, well lit, and the bathrooms (showers) are exceptional. The breakfasts were the best we had in out entire two week trip to Scotland/UK.
But what really made this spot stand out was the staff and their truly exceptional willingness to accommodate the needs of their guests. Elaine and her dining room staff in particular did everything they could to assist us and make our stay top-notch. THANK YOU!

We stayed at 2 Hillside Crescent for 3 nights in July on a visit to Edinburgh with friends. From the moment you step inside the front door you get the "Wow" factor and a feeling that you have chosen well !
Your host Elaine is engaging and so welcoming, she cannot do enough for you we had a lovely warm welcome and she shared her knowledge of where to go and what to see during our stay.
This B&B is ideally situated within walking distance of all the main areas you would want to visit.
Breakfast at 2 Hillside Crescent is fantastic all cooked fresh to order using the finest produce.
Being "foodies" our first stop was the deli Valvona & Crolla situated just round the corner from 2 Hillside Crescent where we enjoyed a delicious lunch.
Another must when in Edinburgh was The Kitchen, Tom Kitchen's restaurant which again did not disappoint, the meal was outstanding and well worth the money.
The Joseph Pearce pub is also worth visiting, very friendly hosts also the Dusit restaurant for a fantastic Thai meal.

We will be returning to Edinburgh and will have no hesitation in staying at 2 Hillside Crescent again.

This b&b was very well located and absolutely beautiful. Great service and food also. We were able to walk to restaurants in the area with lots of choices.
The only drawback to most b&b's is no elevator service and they have a couple of floors. With luggage, this can be challenging.

Absolutely gorgeous B&B: beautiful building, huge rooms, incredibly stylish decor with top quality finishes.

The owner is really wonderful; She went out of her way to help us, provided a delicious breakfast and was generally a great host.

I can honestly say that this is the best quality B&B I have stayed in and would thoroughly recommend to anyone going to Edinburgh.

Two Hillside Crescent..... Ahh we're do you begin! Words can not express just how beautiful , comfortable and stylish it is. I have had the privilege of staying here on a few occasions and standards simply do not slip that is not an option for Elaine the gracious perfectionist owner.
Every detail has been thought through, it is just so difficult to leave. Thank you Two Hillside Crescent.

Room Tip: My Favorite room is the first floor room with four poster bed and amazing bathroom.

This is an experience not to be missed! Pure luxury and comfort which soaks away the tiredness of a busy day rambling round Edinburgh, the highlands and beyond. A perfect location to walk to the centre of Edinburgh in 5 mins and Elaine the owner is fantastic with top tips on those hidden gems of interesting shops, places to visit and the best restaurants and caves. Book this fabulous guest house now - 5 star plus! Breakfast is amazing too and you'll sleep like a baby in the most comfortable bed in he world!!!!- just love this place.......

Room Tip: Has superior and regular rooms and both types are excellent!
