We stayed at the Braemar house for 3 nights at the end of a 10 night visit to Scotland. It was clearly the nicest B&B that we had during our stay. The room was very comfortable and exceptionally clean. Great breakfast and our hosts Sandy and Linda very helpful and friendly. We don't have anything negative to say about the Braemar house. (Bus ride to the Princess street area was about 13 minutes)

I booked in for two weeks and ended up staying almost 11 weeks, the room's are very comfortable, the hosts Linda and Sandy make you feel very welcome. You have to have the Braemar breakfast to set you up for the day wether your working or sight seeing. You will get great tips on places to visit from Linda and Sandy and the B & B is situated right on the main bus route for easy travel. I would not hesitate to recommend the Braemar B & B to anyone wishing a very relaxing short break or like myself a base while working in Edinburgh.

I have stayed all weeks for 2 nights per week in Feb 2010. The establishment is very well run, spotlessly clean and friendly. Lynda and Sandy are excellent hosts, very helpful and welcoming. I would definitely recommend this B&B to anyone.

It would be nearly impossible to find fault with this guest house, which is a testament to it's owners, Sandy and Linda McAulay. They both exude class and professionalism and it permeates throughout their home. The double room was immaculate. The bathroom fixtures glistened and I believe they change the bedding every 15 minutes. There was a flat-screen tv and wi-fi access in the room and toiletries in the well-proportioned en-suite.

Breakfast was cooked fresh by Linda and conversation was supplied by Sandy. (They both did their jobs very well.) The location is ideal; less than 20 minutes to Princes Street by bus, and only a short walk for buses to Glasgow, Stirling and the airport (though I did opt for a taxi for 10 pounds.)

I spent 6 days here and wished I could have stayed longer.

Richard and I stayed for the first time at Sandy and Linda's home and were made so welcome. It was so comfortable and relaxing. Nothing was too much trouble for them. If anyone has any doubt or where to stay in Edinburgh please try their guest house. You will not be dissapointed. The breakfast's was lovely and the rooms so comfortable. We would always stay there if we returned to Edinburgh. Thank-you both for making our break so comfortable.

Kate and Richard.

My wife and I received a warm and friendly welcome on our arrival. The Braemar is one of (if not the) cleanest and tidiest establishment we have ever been to. Our room was warm, comfortable and tastefully decorated. The bathroom was spotlessly clean (gleaming!). The breakfast was all we could have wished for and served with a smile. We will certainly be returning to the Braemar and would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone.
