The guest house has a fantastic amount of character and the host has clearly thought about the smaller details to make your stay comfortable, such as the addition of toiletries, water and sweets in the room. Breakfast was lovely, having ordered the night before there was a small time to wait before you could eat, it was beautifully presented and... More

The BnB was clean and located not to far from the center. The only big deception was the breakfast. The fruit salad was not really fresh. The one of the 1st morning was even mouldy. The porrige tested watter. It looked like cooked with watter and no milk. Quite disappointing.

Really clean and comfortable. There were really nice touches like bottled water in the room and the tea and coffee facilities were very generous as were the toiletries in the bathroom. There was a good choice of breakfast which was delicious.

Thank you for a great place to stay overnight. Breakfast was wonderful and my husband said he had the best fruit salad he had ever tasted. A very friendly and helpful place to stay. Close to the city centre and all of Edinburgh attractions would be within walking distance. Lesley

Wonderful warm welcome. Immaculate accommodation. Our room was cozy and warm, with everything in it we needed. Including a wee dish of chocolates. Breakfast was plentiful and nothing was too much trouble. Our host even served breakfast at 10am, knowing her guests were there to celebrate Hogmanay.

The room was warm and clean and the bed comfortable. Owner is genial ,courteous and obliging. The orange juice we had was freshly expressed for us by the owner as we sat at the breakfast table. I would certainly stay there again.

About the property
  • Non-Smoking Hotel
Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Open all year round, Edinburgh House is a small mother and daughter run guest house in a traditional tenement building only a short walk to city centre attractions like Princes Street, Calton Hill, The Royal Mile, Holyrood Palace and Edinburgh Castle. There is also a good bus service to the city centre if you don't feel like walking! We have a variety of restaurants nearby, and the Edinburgh Playhouse Theatre is only a couple of minutes walk. All of our rooms are finished to a high standard with en suite bathrooms, multi-channel digital TV, tea/coffee making facilities and hairdryers in every room. Also, free wifi internet access is available. We operate a strictly non-smoking establishment. Should our guests have any special requirements (such as booking a taxi, arranging flowers etc) we are happy to oblige. Nothing too big and nothing too small for us! We also speak French and Italian for our foreign visitors. We look forward to welcoming you as guests to our B&B soon. ... more   less
