We stayed there for Hogmanay 2010 and it was fantastic. The owners are absolutely lovely and made the stay that little bit better. They even provided a very thoughtful gift when we arrived from our Hogmanay celebrations which made us love it that much more.

The breakfast is excellent (get the pancakes) and the location is very good. Rooms are absolutely gorgeous in true Victorian style.

Tip: When you stay, make sure you go to Karen Wongs. Truly unforgettable experience and excellent food.

Spotlessly clean, large and beautiful rooms, delicious breakfast and the friendliest hosts. We had a fantastic stay here at Gladstone House. Walkable distance to the city (20-30 mins) or a short bus ride. Buses are frequent and stop right outside. If you want a B&B that goes the extra mile, this is it! Loved it.

This bed and breakfast is in a fantastic location just a short bus ride from central Edinburgh. Stayed here whilst visiting the fringe festival... lovely comfy room with tea coffee making facilities, really nice matress and pillows making for a great nights sleep and a lovely clean shower room. The owners Tom and Hamish obviously take great pride in ensuring guests enjoy their stay, and that their beautiful bed and breakfast is always clean and tidy... they should feel proud... the presentation and organisation, from the decor in the rooms, to the breakfast in the morning, even to the pack lunch we were given our last day because we had an early flight was second to none.. I have stayed in premier inns and travel lodges, even some posh places in Brighton but none compare to this. Highly recommended A+

The Gladstone is an elegant Victorian Home beautifully restored and properly updated. We stayed in a lovely room that faced Dalkeith Rd. The beds were comfortable and clean and we loved the view out the front window. We felt like royalty every morning at breakfast in the lovely dining room. Tom and Hamish served delicious breakfasts as we sat and listened to classical music and sipped as much coffee as we wanted. One morning when we were leaving early for a tour, they packed us a take away breakfast! Talk about going above and beyond the call of duty! They called us cabs when we needed them and were always ready to answer our questions; they are very kind and gracious hosts!

Had a great stay at Gladstone house. Tom and Hamish served up delicious breakfasts that set us up for the day. They were a real help in planing our stay in Edinburgh. Easy to get into the city centre as the bus stop was just outside and only took around 10 minutes to Princes Street. Rooms were very clean and the beds really comfortable.

This was our first time using B&B's / Guest Houses. We had a wonderful 3 days in Edinburgh and our hosts could not have made our stay any better. We had a triple room which was big enough, being on the third floor we have a wonderful view but the climb with bags was a bit of an effort. It was an easy walk into the city or the bus was just outside the door. We would certainly stay again and recommend it to others.
