We are two Swedish grandparents with our two grandchildren visiting Edinburgh in JUne 2011. We had been lokking for a B&B or hotels not in central Edinburgh as we wanted some space to move around for our children. We found Rathan House and Eskbank guesthouse and we couldn't be more satisfied.
We got tips about what to do, interesting places to visit, charming restaurants with super menues...our whole journey was planned before we arrived! Thank you for being so helpful!!
The rooms were big and clean, we got everything we needed, the girls liked the Scottish cookies!.
Also - , thanks for the Scottish breakfast!
At the moment I could say nothing that could have been better - maybe the time for taking bus to the centre of Edinburg (approximatly 20 minutes) but it was worth staying a bit outside the city centre
