Adam Drysdale House
Ranked #126 of 396 Edinburgh B&B and Inns
Reviewed 5 June 2017

Really friendly place, Janette was very accommodating and made sure that we had great places to go in Edinburgh.
She also made sure our room was cleaned between the two nights that we stayed there, and the breakfast was amazing. I had the full Scottish breakfast however my girlfriend preferred a lighter option so Janette happily cooked her scrambled eggs and bacon on toast instead (which wasn't on the menu). There was also fruit, cereal, yogurt and pastries available.

It was also only a short walk away from the centre of Edinburgh (around 15 minutes) which was lovely.

We would definitely stay here again.

Note: Don't pay attention to the pictures on here from 2014, our room was really nice so we think the place has been renovated since.

We have recently returned home from a great weekend in Edinburgh celebrating my wife's 40th birthday. The accommodation at Adam Drysdale is first class.

The location was perfect and within easy walking distance from the city centre. Janette was very welcoming and couldn't do enough to help us. She responded to emails prior to our visit and helped me set up a surprise for my wife. It was lovely that she was always on hand with some tips and advice during our stay.

Adam Drysdale House is a lovely B&B, very clean, very friendly and we would love to visit again in the future.

Thank you Janette.

What can I say, nice, cozy and comfy, friendly welcome and worth every penny.
Loved the Haggis for breakfast, and breakfast itself was perfect. I recommend this little place if you stay in Edinburgh, easy access to the city and all that's on offer.
Thank you

Excellent location, only a few minutes walk from the old town / Edinburgh Castle with plenty of restaurants and bars in the local area.

Janette was extremely welcoming and friendly both upon our arrival and throughout our stay. She also offered great tips of where to visit / what to see. Thanks also Janette for the amazing Scottish breakfast each morning!

The room was extremely high quality - very clean, comfortable and with a fantastic en-suite! We had a great time and will be definitely returning during our next trip to Edinburgh! Highly recommended!
