Ben Cruachan Guest House
Ranked #8 of 393 Edinburgh B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 8, 2014

We wanted to spend a long weekend up in Scotland and decided on Edinburgh.
We were recommended this B&B by a friend, and I am so grateful they did.
The place is fantastic, and the hospitality is nothing short of perfect.
Jackie made sure everything we could ask for was available, whenever we needed it.
The room was perfect, the food was perfect, and the location was brilliant.

If we needed maps, they were available. If we had questions Jackie would answer. If we needed clean towels, they were already there.

Thank you Jackie, Edinburgh was great. Nothing more we could have asked for.

Cheers

Mani

Owner Jackie Herriott, who worked for years in Edinburgh's tourism industry, uses that rich experience to operate a well run B & B in central Edinburgh. The rooms are pleasant and the breakfast is delicious. We would certainly stay here again the next time we come to Edinburgh. Look no further.

We have just returned after a lovely stay at Ben Cruachan guest house This has been a wonderful experience for us, we have always stayed in hotels, first time in a guest house. We had a beautiful and spacious room amazing shower a carafe of very good sherry, we did not expect all the extras. The decoration in this place is absolutely beautiful. The quality of breakfast was amazing both in the food and presentation. We did not realise a guest house could provide this standard of hospitality.

I simply had to write a review on the amazing B&B that is Ben Cruachan. From fresh flowers, sherry and sweets in the room on arrival, to a very comfy bed, fantastic breakfast, and an owner who is as kind and helpful as Jackie was to me, you have quite simply a wonderful place to stay. She was very helpful in offering suggestions on places to visit.

It is about 15 mins walk from Princes Street / Waverley Station but there are a few great pubs nearby if you don't want to journey far.

But you can see for yourself what a tremendous place this is to stay. I will definitely be staying here again for the next time I visit and can't recommend Ben Cruachan enough.

Stayed here for 2 nights. The place was decorated gorgeously and the bedroom was very nice. Very Clean and tidy. The breakfast was well cooked including special porridge served with malt whiskey and Scottish breakfast that can definitely cheer up your day. Jackie is such a good host and take care of every guest. Will come back again some time in future.
