Gerald's Place is quite simply outstanding. Our Edinburgh experience started long before we arrived. Gerald provided us with cornucopia of materials to whet our appetites and to plan our visit to this spectacular city. The lists and contact information for restaurants and tours, and a lot more besides were very welcome. But even these are nothing compared to the insights gained from talking with Gerald during your stay. He is a raconteur, and among the best. Breakfast is quite simply the most important meal of the day. You meet other guests and enjoy stories with each other and with Gerald. And the full breakfast (or lighter fare) are prepared as and when you like it. Justyna served as our main host for our first few days and she was wonderful. Marie we only met once (our loss). Our bedroom and en-suite bath were exactly as advertised. Our room and Gerald's Place more generally were wonderful places to rest up (we also were able to take advantage of the free internet - though we did try to stay in vacation mode!).
Gerald's Place is located a few blocks from Princes Street (and 8-10 minutes walk from Waverly Station ... and the main Tourist Information Center). This means that you are centrally located and many of the treasures of Edinburgh are easily accessible. Edinburgh has an undulating terrain so be prepared but it is also a wonderful walking city. If you are like us you will do almost everything on foot. Gerald's Places provides easy access to many excellent local restaurants, pubs/bars, and more importantly musuems, galleries, and parks. For us it was about a 12-15-minute walk to/from the Royal mile (by 2-3 different routes); and what an impressive and spectacular sets of walks (at any time of day).
Visit Edinburgh; and stay at Gerald's Place. You won't regret either. Stephen & Valarie, USA
