My room with an en suite bathroom was large--the shower was huge and nicely modern. Everything was clean and comfortable, and the owner of the B&B made my stay relaxed and enjoyable. The location was perfect. From McCrae's B&B, it is a very close & enjoyable walk to Princes Street and the Royal Mile, yet the B&B is situated in a very nice neighborhood with many restaurants to choose from that are very good but not overpriced. I cannot imagine staying at a better B&B for the value it offered in regard to location and overall comfort. Last but not least, the WiFi connection was free, easy to access, stable, and all around great.

I stayed at Craes's for one night. The rooms are clean and spacious. You can choose from a full breakfast or a small one. Both of them are very good and you have all you need. The owner was very nice and helpful. Its a great and lovely B&B, which is close to the city.

It was such a nice and excellent stay in Edinburgh. I was happy with everything including cozy and clean room, reasonable price and good breakfast. Easy access to the main sightseeing placese can be also one of the advantages. You can expect warm welcoming and hospitality from John as well.

Thanks for everything, John.

We went to the Craes's at the end of August and stayed 2 nights there. It was clean, quiet, relaxing. I found that it was a bit apart from the city centre, we got to walk more than I expected to visit Edinburgh. The owner was really nice and friendly.

Room Tip: The road is a bit busy but it's just during the day.

I stayed for 2 nights with my girlfriend and first impressions of the room were that it was very spacious, the pictures don’t do it justice, John was very welcoming and helpful and with him been downstairs it was easy to get in contact with him if needed.
Very close to the city centre, we managed to walk into the city and back every day without the need of taxis and as stated in another review there is a corner shop right nearby if you need anything.
All in all a very good stay and would definitely use McCraes again if we were to come back up to Edinburgh.

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 2, it was very spacious (I think it was the biggest room there) and was also not o...

Stayed here here overnight a few weeks ago a really comfortable B&B close to the town centre. John was really welcoming and helpful sorting out taxis for us as we were going to a friend's wedding reception.
I would use this B&B again I was staying in Edinburgh again.

We stayed at McCraes for a weekendtrip to Edinburgh with the hole family and friends of us. We knew the McCraes from our last stay in Edinburgh in 2009. And like 2009 it was wonderful, John gave us a warm welcome and we felt welcome during the hole weekend. The children had their own room (Family-Room), a very comfortable room. All rooms are very comfortable and very tidy, the bathrooms as well. The breakfast was excellent and the beds, you can't imagine how comfortable the beds are.WONDERFUL.
You can reach the centre in a few minutes and all the city's sights and places.
We surely know planning our next Edinburgh trip can't be perfect without staying at McCraes. It's like coming home, because John is very helpful and friendly. If you are surching a B&B for a family stay, be sure McCraes is the best choice you can make.
