“Feels like home...here kitty, kitty”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

This b&b is a wonderful find in central Edinburgh. The hosts are charming and helpful. Food was marvelous, accommodations clean and sufficient. Located a few blocks from the main busy streets gave us a great quiet place to settle in for the night. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, but needed to overlook a few minor issues. Since it wasn't clear that there were four indoor cats on site and one of my family member's is terrified of cats, this caused some anxiety. Although the cats are beautiful, and the owners take care to not let them in the rooms, they definitely are present. Thus,a mild cat odor is present, but not offensive. Of course if you love cats, your stay will have a wonderful added touch.

Room Tip: If you need handicap assistance, ask for the rooms on the main level. The room downstairs is steep.

I stayed for two nights with Diane and Robert and would highly recommended 40A Heriot Row. By the time I left, I felt like a welcome friend rather than a paying guest. On arrival I was greeted with a 'medicinal' dram in front of the fire before being shown to my spacious room, with a window seat looking over the garden and Edinburgh rooftops and shower in the old dumb waiter. The bed was incredibly comfortable and breakfasts were amazing. It was lovely to be welcomed so graciously into such a beautiful home right in the heart of the New Town, I look forward to staying there again.

From the start, the hosts made us feel very welcome. The house is speldid and in a wonderfully central yet quiet location. The room was a perfect size with a very comfortable bed and ensuite shower room. Diane and Robert offer a hearty breakfast too! We were sad to leave and will definately be returning here for our next stay in Edinburgh.

Room Tip: Choice of Double or twin.
