No. 16 Learmonth Terrace
Ranked #181 of 393 Edinburgh B&B and Inns
Reviewed October 20, 2010

To start with, the location is practical (you can easily reach Edinburg centre on foot) and the owners friendly. Both the bedroom and the bathroom are clean, big and nice: comfortable bed, sofa, music equipment and laptop with wifi, bathrobe and slippers, spa... it's like being at home, just maybe more comfy! The breakfast Joon prepared for us was the best we had in Scotland: very flexible, with excellent porridge, delicious scrambled eggs, tasty bread and homemade jams, a wonderful plate of fresh fruits and other delicacies... So go and indulge if you can afford the place. I have to admit that we only discovered it because we booked late and cheaper options were not available anymore. We don't regret it because it was great, but we payed £129 a night, which is at least the double of the price we payed for any other accomodation (among which very good B&Bs as well) during our 2 weeks in Scotland. Ok, it was Edinburgh in summer but still, not everyone can spend that much for a night.

Our experience staying at 16 Learmonth Terrace was lovely, ideal and the perfect location. Arriving at this beautiful, grand home, we were greeted by our wonderful hosts, Joon and Peter, who could not have been more hospitable, warm and helpful. Decorated with an array of local art and artifacts, our large, gorgeous room was prepared perfectly for guests down to every detail-whether it was the tea and coffee tray with home-made chocolates & cookies, fluffy bath-robes or book filled with their recommendations for things to do in the city-
The breakfast (choice of traditional Scottish or continental) was amazing-breakfast just isn't the same anymore after our stay here. Above all, our interactions with our hosts-whether it was asking for directions or friendly chat at breakfast-was the best part of our stay. Joon and Peter are so welcoming and interesting and had gone above and beyond. Can't wait to go back and stay again!

Large bedroom, great breakfast, comfortable bed, wonderful hosts, luxe bath, lovely garden for an afternoon cocktail, a beautiful home, and can walk or take public transportion to all sites; what more could one want? Peter and Joon were perfect hosts and very helpful with information about everything in Edinburgh and surroundings. We highly recommend 17 Learmonth Terrace.

After spending 3+ weeks in the UK - we finished our trip at this lovely Victorian Terrace townhouse. Our accomodation was spotless, bright with added personal touches of prints and artwork of several artist (our own mini gallery). Our full scottish breakfast was delicious and served by Joon.
Joon and Peter gave us detailed information regarding galleries, museums, restaurants - even transportation. By taking Lothian Bus #41 from No. 16 Learmonth B&B you will arrive on Princess Street where you can hop off and walk directly to the National Gallery and begin your day in the heart of Edinburgh.

My husband and I had a short weekend break to enjoy the final few days of the Edinburgh Fringe and stayed with Joon in her wonderful Bed and Breakfast accommodation. The large bedroom with a settee for collapsing onto; television and internet access; home made chocolate cookies and whisky (or tea/coffee); enormous tasty and varied breakfast;large bathroom with bath and shower, large fluffy towels - nothing can be faulted. It is a brisk walk from the city centre and from the airport bus stop. Joon is a lovely lady for whom nothing is too much trouble. I would not hesitate to recommend this accommodation to anyone making a trip to Edinburgh and wanting a quiet homely place to stay.
