David couple are extreamly warm and helpful, the food is gorgeous(my wife starts to learn vanilla pancakes now), great transportation, and food/view both within walking distance. Our little one just love their dog Maya. One of our best bb experience, definitely will recommend to others

What a treat it was to spend our short stay in Edinburgh at Albyn Town house. A sincere and pleasant welcome was our introduction. A special thank you for receiving a message from our friend plus additional messages you passed along to us. The breakfast menu was exceptionally first class. A comfortable bed made for a welcome stay. Very helpful with information about the city including maps and bus information.

'This was our second stay at Albyn Townhouse. Perfect location when we visit our daughter and to get into the city easily.
Lydie welcomed us like old friends. Staying at Albyn is a delight, home from home comfort and home cooked food. We'll be back!'

Room Tip: Great view from room 8

Only spent one night at the Albyn and what lovely accommodation. Agree with other reviews - clean, comfy beds and tastefully decorated. The area is easy to get to and buses to Edinburgh at top of the road (or a brisk 20 min walk). Especially enjoyed the quietness of the area and had one of the best nights sleep away from home ever. Had the veggie breakfast with the tasty "haggis". Will certainly recommend and return. Jacqueline & Neil, Hamilton

We received a warm welcome from Lydie, who showed us to a lovely, spacious and well appointed en-suite bedroom. The bed was very comfortable, the shower was excellent and we had a different delicious breakfast every day for three days. (Looking forward to trying some of the other choices next time!)

Albyn Townhouse is an excellent place to stay in Edinburgh. Lydie and David were great hosts, the rooms are spacious and extremely well appointed. Bathroom was excellent and the beds were very snuggly. And breakfast!! Well, that was something else. Fantastic is all I can say. Another great feature is the secure car park at the end of the street. As a party of four we had a large car to accommodate and in the narrow streets it was a relief to have that taken care of. All in all, an ideal place to stay.
