We were made very welcome! A spotlessly clean and tastefully presented home. Very good location too - quickly into Edinburgh by public transport. Corstophinealso is an interesting and historic place in its own right. Don't miss the histoic dovecot.

We have been staying in the self catering apartment at Dovecot House... its great! CLEAN! Warm, welcoming, comfortable and Maggie even went out and bought a special piece of computer equipment just so that I could get my email here. How good is that? Also its amazingly quiet here at night with not even an owl hoot to disturb your...

I have stayed in this B&B a number of times. I stay here while on business, but I've also stayed here with my wife when visiting Edinburgh. I can say with confidence that this is by far the best B&B I have stayed in. The owner Maggie is delightful and is the perfect host. Her breakfasts are fantastic and her...

Have just returned home from a wonderful two night stay at Dovecot House. This beautiful Guest House is the cleanest and most welcoming guest house I have ever stayed in. Plenty of parking and no need to take the care out. A short bus ride into Edinburgh is a stone throw away. The rooms are large, cosy ,bright and just...

We have just returned from our second visit to Dovecot House, the first being about 2 years ago. Maggie (the proprieter) still maintains the excellent standards previously found and is as warm and friendly as ever. This visit was to have been made a year ago but was cancelled due to the bad winter and Maggie had kept us informed...

Many thanks to host Maggie MacKenzie for her lovely warm welcome on our return visit to Dovecot House. It is a pleasure to stay in Maggie's beautiful home. Our Scottish breakfasts were delicious and the cosy garden room was ideal - with the birds and a pet rabbit to entertain us! Our son and his partner thought their double en-suite...

I absolutely loved my week that I stayed here. Maggie could not be more accommodating and welcoming and helpful. It was just a short bus trip to the city itself and there was a couple of good places to eat not far away... A must stay!!

Beautiful clean guest house, just as described, "a home from home". Maggie was just delightful and was always on hand to make sure everything was up to expectations. Lovely room with great views across to the distant hills. Breakfast was lovely. Five minute journey by bus into Edinburgh. My first visit to Scotland and it was certainly memorable and would...

The Best B&B anyone could ask for. Top service, bed so comfortable and room large, light and airy. Good location for catching the bus into the city. Maggie went out of her way to assist us. Her cheery, friendly nature is amazing, and nothing was too much trouble. Breakfasts were so good.

A tastefully restored Victorian Villa located in a quiet tree lined road within the historic conservation village of Corstorphine yet only 10 minutes from the city centre and airport. Period features have been retained yet the interior is light, contemporary and welcoming. An ideal 'retreat' in the City or base for touring. ... more   less
