The staff were very accommodating providing an early breakfast as some of us had to be up and out very early on the Saturday. Nice big rooms and good heating which you need in... More

This is a good option if you want to stay centrally without breaking the bank. We stayed here over the Christmas period and had a nice big room at a lot less than the big hotels were charging. It's about a 15 minute walk to the castle etc so really central. Kay and Kenny made us feel very welcome with... More

We stayed here with our two kids for our first festival experience. Kenny and Kay made us most welcome, shame they couldn't do anything about the weather! We loved our family room, breakfasts were great, though a shame they didn't serve any haggis. Great location for festival goers with good venues within walking distance.

We spent 4 weeks this summer in the UK, most of it in Scotland. We chose to stay in B & Bs most of the time so we certainly had a variety of styles, prices and amenities. We stayed in Ardenlee near the beginning of our trip and were very disappointed in it. We had booked it due to the... More

We stayed here for 4 nights last week and had a wonderful time. The guesthouse is charming and in a great location - try the bistro across the road in the evenings!

My mum (who's retired) booked in here for a break to see family in Edinburgh. She was given a single room rate of £45 per night B&B which is not bad for central Edinburgh but as it turned out she would rather have paid more for better accommodation. The Ardenlee is in fact only one half of the guest house,... More
