It's counterintuitive to drive away from the centre of the place you're visiting, but within about three hours of settling in, and then exploring the areas around us, it was clear that we had absolutely backed a winner by staying here. We were on a mini moon, and stayed at the Witchery by the Castle on the first night. The...

I couldn't fault our stay from start to finish. 23 mayfield is a great location we walked into the city both days. A warm welcome was received when we arrived by a member of staff. There is parking which is great. Our room was amazing from the decor to the comfy bed, classical music playing gently as we walked in....

We stepped through the door and were greeted with the warmest welcome from Ross. I thought I had an eye for quality but this establishment taught me a lesson in good taste.

Fantastic location with its own parking (very important in this city), half an hour's walk in to the Royal Mile and also on a handy bus route. The hosts have plentiful good suggestions for places to eat and drink and things to see, and the restored nineteenth-century building is an impressive place itself. The breakfast really is the stuff of...

When I say that we've stayed in some of the most recognized and iconic hotels and B&Bs in Europe, we usually know what to expect and reserve our judgment until we check out after our stay. It's a bed and some breakfast the next morning with not much...

23 Mayfield ranked among our best bed and breakfast experiences ever, and certainly ranks as our best ever B&B experience for the price. The breakfasts, which are included, are creatively presented and delicious, and served in the dining room that ranks as one of the most beautiful we’ve seen. The owners and staff are consistently welcoming, and helpful, informative, and...

We have just enjoyed a 4 night stay at 23 Mayfield. Ross and his staff are great hosts, made us feel very welcome. The house is lovely, very tastefully decorated. Ross gave us good tips on where to eat and how best to travel whilst we stayed there, he certainly knows Edinburgh very well. Our room was Room 5 and...

When we researched places to stay in Edinburgh, we were lucky enough to have seen the reviews about 23 Mayfield. 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
