While there are plenty of Bed and Breakfast Inns as well as hotels in the city, do yourself a favor and book your stay at 23 Mayfield. The minute we walked through the entry we fell in love with the...

I went here with my wife off recommendations from trip advisor, and it is just as good as the reviews. Excellent hotel, excellent rooms, excellent staff and excellent food! The breakfast special which was Ross's spin on the mcmuffin was amazing

I stayed here in December with my wife for two nights over the weekend. We arrived early at lunchtime however the room was all ready for us and we were able to check in immediately.

This was a great venue for an Edinburgh break. Our stylish room was spotlessly clean. Breakfasts were delightfully with a wide choice and imaginative daily options. The location was excellent for exploring old southside haunts - 25 years after emigrating south - but on good bus routes and with parking all of Edinburgh is accessible. Spot on.

Ross and the rest of the staff has managed to do everything right! from the general atmosphere and feeling of the rooms down to the choice of shower gel. All of it is top notch! Service is immaculate with out being stiff and posh. We felt very welcomed and pampered and can highly recommend 23 Mayfield. It is super convenient...

I stayed in the top floor family room with my 2 kids for a few days, the room was great, breakfast is a real treat and the owner is very friendly and helpful. This place deserves the good reviews it has received.

23 Mayfield officially takes the cake as my new favorite spot to stay. I was taken in by the aesthetic, which definitely did not let me down, but it was really Ross & Anna who made the experience. My husband and I had an early flight that arrived in Edinburgh at 10 am and they graciously let us check in...
