2 Cambridge Street
Ranked #103 of 393 Edinburgh B&B and Inns
Reviewed June 25, 2012

Erlend was good enough to collect us from the railway station. We had a very pleasant 2 night stay. I particularly enjoyed the many objets d'art, and weird doohickies. Number 2 was a perfect base for exploring "tourist" Edinburgh. Breakfast was a beautifully presented fine dining experience. I wouldn't hesitate to recomend this b and b to family and friends.

We stayed for one night while attending the Royal Highland Show. We found our hosts to be very warm and engaging. They were helpful and practical with regard to queries re local restaurant recommendations as well as local transport. Their accommodation is most unusual, quirky and original. The bedroom was atmospheric and will definitely be remembered for evoking a different era. It was very clean and comfortable. The modern ensuite is small and functional. We were very comfortable there and slept very well. Breakfast was the best ever, very yummy vanilla and coconut yoghurt with kiwi, omelette and smoked salmon for one of us and asparagus and poached eggs for the other, both served under a silver salver. The attention was in the details here. We can definitely recommend a stay here to anyone who has the opportunity for a short or longer stay. Many thanks to Erlend and Helene for a most memorable and enjoyable stay.

Room Tip: Only 2 double rooms available and both would be equally good.

As everyone else has said - interesting and quirky rooms, great and amiable hosts, superb breakfasts and a wonderful location. Convenient for Princes St, castle, old town, theatres and cinema. We will be back, hopefully for longer.

An enjoyable 2 night stay. Great breakfasts. Only issues are not in Erlend's control.....Parking. $85 for two days was unexpected and TV in the rooms would be good.. Still a good stay.

Erlend (the owner) is a very likeable and thoroughly engaging host. Breakfasts are delicious and a real treat. We highly recommend 2 Cambridge Street and thoroughly enjoyed the French-influenced decor. Enjoy!

I discovered these proprietors 12 years ago when they ran a similar but larger B&B in the New Town of Edinburgh and have followed them to 2 Cambridge Street. I feel diappointed if I cannot get in here on my frequent visits to Edniburgh and use it for business and personal visits. I have stayed here by myself, with my wife and with colleagues - I also frequently recommend this to others all of whom have reported favourably.

It's hard to describe 2 Cambridge St - but the ambience is perfect, the rooms full of quirky memorabilia, the situation simply could not be better and the breakfasts are the best in town. Erlend and Helene are a fascinating couple about which I will say no more - find out for yourself.

This B&B is in the perfect location, in the shadow of Edinburgh Castle. Only 5 minutes walk to either the shopping off Princes Street or the historic Old Town. Erland and Helene are the perfect hosts, always on hand to engage in interesting and witty conversation, or offer advice on restaurants and sights. The accomodation is spotless, and tastefully packed full of antiques and a few quirky musical novelties. Don't expect a fry up for breakfast. In keeping with the classy surroundings, and impecable service, you will be offered a selection of fresh and beautifully presented fare. Highly recommended, and we will definately return.

Room Tip: Ideal for couples on a short break, as there are only 2 guest rooms. Book well in advance to avoid d...
