Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 3, 2012

Very nice B&B situated near the center of Edinburgh (20-30min walk or several busses available). Outstanding breakfast, lots of dishes to choose. Very quiet.

Only negative this was the soft mattress a a small bathroom.

Can be recommended.

Room Tip: Higher floor are likel more quiet during breakfast hours.

The hosts were very welcoming and gave us lots of tips in terms of places to visit and eat. Our room, although a little on the small side, was very clean and comfortable (especially the bed; one of the most comfortable I have slept in). It was also extremely well located - we were able to park our car in the secure car park and walk to the centre of Edinburgh within 15 minutes. I would stay here again.

What a wonderful place. So comfortable and relaxing just outside the city center of Edinburgh. Room was large and comfortable. If you like to walk it is a nice walk to the city centre. We were here for two nights and enjoyed our stay tremendously. Would recommend to anyone staying in Edinburgh.

We stayed here for our 2 nights in Edinburgh. We arrived later than expected but had a warm welcome anyway. Our room was so beautiful. Modern but still with heritage details like the incredibly ornate ceiling and cornicing. We didn't have a view of the city but who cares when you can easily walk TO the city! We had nice weather so we didn't need to use transport at all. We walked easily into the old town, Calton hill, Arthur's seat etc. Loved Edinburgh and the accommodation! Would definitely stay here again.

Stayed here in June for a city break. Location is outside of city, but bus links are great. The hosts were fantastic showing us where to get buses from. We arrived early and they let us store our suitcases so we could start exploring. Room was a good size,very well decorated,clean and quiet.Breakfast was plentiful with a good choice. Would recommend and stay again if ever visiting Edinburgh again.

we had a wonderful stay at Albyn Townhouse. the welcome, comfort and attention to detail were a pleasant start to our weekend break. we were given a very well appointed room and along with the situation of the property it made for a very quiet and comfortable experience yet still fairly close to the centre. the hearty breakfast and happy smiles each morning were a perfect start to day. walking to town from this location is ok in fine weather, alternatively use the buses with a £3.50 (coins only) day pass. highly recommended.

Room Tip: we had a triple room to the front on the first floor - it was perfect

During our Scotland tour in April 2012 we stayed 2 nights here and felt very relaxed at this perfect B&B.
Cosy, quiet atmosphere and rooms are absolutely tidy and proper.
A good, not to soft bed and a high quality breakfast secures a perfect day!
Definitely a highly recommend place if you intend to stay in Edinburgh, which is a fantastic city for all seasons of the year!
Best wishes and warm greetings from Bavaria
