“Gracious living and elegant service”
Reviewed May 4, 2007

If you want to experience the true charm and refinement of this beautiful city then 20 London Street is THE best residence to base yourself. Lovely. We have just come back after a long weekend there and are missing it already.
Set in a Georgian townhouse in the 'New Town' just down from St Andrews Sq (and Harvey Nichols) it occupies a prime location and is extremely comfortable.
We really loved coming back to this place after a day of sightseeing and culture etc. .
It was like being a true Edinburgh resident but with the added bonus of the wonderful manager, John, looking after us. His knowledge of the best restaurants, exhibitions, theatres etc was exempliary whilst the breakfast served was worth the whole tariff alone.
Sheets were top quality (a sign of a good place to stay in my book) and everywhere was super clean plus we had use of the gracious drawing room with its wealth of artworks, curios and objets d'art.
We felt thoroughly looked after here.
If only all other B&B's had this mixture of top-hotel-quality service with that personal touch.

New Town is THE place to stay if you want to sample Edinburgh's architecture, and London Street is a great example. Number 20 London Street is a beautiful home, filled with pictures and flowers. There's a huge, elegant drawing room where breakfast is served. We stayed in the double room at the back of the house, ground floor, which has a view over the gardens. The shower room was more of a shower cupboard, but that was really our only complaint. Oh - and make sure Gillian doesn't chat too much during breakfast or a lot of croissants can get burnt!. The other guests were also really interesting to chat to over breakfast, which was not just a full cooked breakfast but also piles of cereals, toast and strawberries.
