What a fabulous stay! Everything was perfect, great host, lovely food, beautiful room and comfy bed. What more could you want! Kath was so welcoming and helpful, really lovely. We would definitely recommend the Alba house, when visiting Edinburgh.

Stayed here with my husband for a weekend. The house was delightfully decorated for the Christmas season with a large collection of dolls, Teddy Bears and other Festive decorations. The hosts were warm and welcoming and offered information to help us get around on public transport besides an assortment of places to eat.

Our room on the first floor at the front of the house was large and the bed very comfortable. If you are a light sleeper the traffic noise on the busy main road and the frequent noise of ambulance sirens on their way to nearby Edinburgh Royal Infirmary might be a problem and a room at the back of the house would be more suitable. There are bedrooms on the second floor though the narrow stairs might be a problem for some.

The breakfast was served in a beautiful large dining room. The menu was extensive and our selection was served up hot and was delicious.

A bonus was the private parking in front of the house, although manoeuvring in the space was difficult when all parking spaces were occupied.

We had a perfect stay for three nights -- the room was clean spacious, bright, and comfortable. Kath is a helpful, friendly host. The breakfast was great. The bus into the center of Edinburgh stopped across the street and there was a shopping center a short walk away. We highly recommend staying here.

Alba House is a lovely home, formerly a merchants home. Kath, our hostess was warm and friendly and very helpful in guiding us on how to get to where we needed to go. You are right on the bus line and near the stop which made it very convenient. She fixed us breakfast to order every morning, plus a lovely buffet of items to choose from as well. Comfortable bed and nice decor in the bedroom. All amenities in the updated bathroom. Coffee and cookies in the room was a nice touch. The only thing we found a bit lacking was the internet reception in our room. Had to go in the hall or downstairs. Need to add an extender to the signal. I would definitely stay here again.

We stayed for two nights at Alba House and we have really enjoy it: nice host that gave us some tips regarding the sightseeing, comfortable bed and very clean room, excellent breakfast with lots of fresh fruits, close to the city center by bus (10-15 min).
