Many thanks to Jim and Olive for the warm welcome of their home and guesthouse, Ard-na-said. We arrived rather late 7 days ago and were warmly welcomed by Olive, who had waited several hours for our arrival. We had booked The Wallace Room and were overwhelmed by it's grand and beautiful space. It became a haven of quiet and peace at the end of each busy day in Edinburgh. There were so many thoughtful touches in the room... DVDs, wash clothes, special aromatic body washes and lotions, soft and plush towels, robes and slippers, and lovely bed linens. Breakfasts were hot and tasty and were served in a spacious breakfast room on the main floor. We had booked our stay at Ard-na-said 5 months in advance to ensure 7 nights in the same room and the same guest house; we were so glad that we had taken the time to do that. We loved the location because it was off Dalkeith Road on a quiet street and only a 25 minute walk into the Old Town. We would highly recommend this guest house to anyone travelling to Edinburgh on business or pleasure. Bravo! Carolyn and Robért
