Elizabeth was fantastic, prepared wonderful breakfasts, and had no trouble in adding a surprise guest at the end of my tour ( one of the other tour-ees had no place to go). The...

This B&B is genuine in many ways... first of all Elizabeth is genuine, she's very friendly and her natural behavior let you feel very comfortable; second the house itself is also genuine, in rooms you can find a touch of the host: it can be a book or a computer but is something speaks about her taste... third the breakfast:...

My father and I stayed here and it was our first place in our Scotland trip. We were delighted by Liz's welcome, clean and very lovely accommodations. Breakfast was tasty and plentiful. The "downtown" area of Edinburgh is a 20-30 minute walk, or you can jump on one of the many buses that come by - which provides a bit...

We absolutely loved the time we spent at Liz's B&B. Our room was very comfortable with a lovely view of the garden; so peaceful to return to after a hectic day of sightseeing.
