The Drysdale house was very nice to stay with. The morning breakfasts were traditional and great. The services couldn't be better. We were even surprised on a return to the room to find a bouquet of flowers and bottle of wine from the hosts. Graham and Janet sre wonderful people and we recommend staying here anytime.

My husband and I had been double booked in a B&B and this fabulous family offered us a room, although they were in the middle of a changeover from their previous tenant. Graham and Jeanette who actually own this establishment have renovated, re-painted and spruced up this lovely accommodation. We were met with a friendly smile, and apologies that the...

We spent a wonderful long weekend in the beautiful city of Edinburgh, our stay at Adam Dysdale House made the weekend very memorable!
