“Our Home away from Home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2006

We had the priviledge of staying at Sylvern house for 5 days at the end of May. We found our Hostess "Judy", to be warm and friendly, and made us feel like a part of her family, we were greeted upon our (early) arrival at Sylvern house with a cup of tea and bisquits in the beautiful conservatory. Our room was large, spotless clean, and very comfortable and the ensuite had been totally refurbished, the fresh fruit bowl and bottled water was a very welcoming touch. Judy was a wonderful cook and offered a fine "Full Scottish Breakfast" every morning, and was very helpful and informative regarding city transportation etc. We experienced several wonderful B&B's during our 17 day visit to Scotland but would definitely rank Sylvern House as one of the very best.

We spent the last 3 days of a fourteen day UK trip at the Sylvern House and thouroughly enjoyed our first B&B experience. Old Victorian style house with lovely garden and conservatory. Warm, hospitable hostess who was most helpful in providing travel info for getting around the Edinburgh area, was also a great chef, providing full delicious Scottish breakfast each morning. Ended our trip on a high note.

Chancing upon the Sylvern last year we were charmed by this beautiful house with back garden big enough to hold the FA Cup Final! On arrival for the opening weekend of this years festival we accepted Judy's offer of tea in the newly completed conservatory.(Much appreciated before our assault on the capital.) If good food,comfy cosey rooms and great hospitality are your bag then check in with Judy.
