The Town House
Ranked #144 of 393 Edinburgh B&B and Inns
Reviewed June 14, 2013

Thrilled with our choice of B&B. Charming, friendly, helpful and informative hosts, Susan and Robert. All their suggestions were spot on. Wonderful breakfasts. Comfortable, clean, quiet but darkish room up 2 steep flights of stairs - only drawback for the "elderly". Good, on site car parking - a bonus for this busy city. City centre within easy walking distance, using Robert's short-cut tips, not shown on the tourist maps and bye-passing all the new building and road works going on in the city! - we felt like "locals", avoiding all these hotspots and discovered extra none-touristy "gems" . Great advice re local eating places. Fantastic 5 night stay.

Room Tip: Ask for the first floor room if you find stairs difficult - the stairs to the second floor are quite...

Had a fanstastic break in a beautiful city. Accommodation was in a lovely victorian house which has obviously been loving restored. Susan and Robert were very good hosts and nothing was too much trouble. Room was nicely decorated and very comfortable with a fab onsuite. Breakfast was excellent. There was also free parking available.

We were within walking distance of Princes Street and Castle and found the buses friendly and easy to use.

We will definitely be back and would throughly recommend The Town House.

I have stayed here a few times over the years for a range of reasons:
Spacious, very comfortable rooms. This is a classy example of Edinburgh architecture.

The service is attentive, but you do not feel 'fussed over'.

The cooked breakfast is excellent, and the location is central.
It is easy to find in the car. A big plus is the car parking facilities, as parking in Edinburgh is not easy, and on street parking is expensive.

Very central and yet busses near by. Lovely room ensuite. The bedding and towels fantastic which made me feel good and comfortable like being at home. Both Susan and Robert looked after me like a long lost friend which is nice when travelling on your own. Scrumptious cooked breakfast with loads of tea. Thanks very much for everything. Next time I´ll bring my husband along and we will certainly stay at Susan and Roberts TOWN HOUSE which is a beautifully restored and refurbished Victorian house.

Stayed here with my wife for my 30th Birthday. Really beautiful Victorian building, and made to feel very welcome during our entire stay. The room was very comfortable and cosy, and we both slept well throughout the stay. Breakfast was also very good, and the owners were always happy to accommodate special requests (my wife is allergic to what).

Fantastic location for City Centre & Old Town - would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to couples visiting Edinburgh who wants a peaceful and welcoming retreat.
