Such a great stay at 23 Mayfield. Made to feel very welcome, and some great recommendations for local restaurants which we went to and were excellent. Such a lovely B&B, ran by wonderful hosts, beautiful decoration and styling. Breakfast was the best I've had in a B&B, and the service was excellent. The location is perfect for getting into the...

We stayed in the deluxe double room for 2 nights. It was on the ground floor and had lovely oak paneling behind the bed. We loved having some homemade tablet on arrival, and it was the best we had throughout our entire trip to Scotland. The B&B itself is easy to find and on a convenient bus route into Edinburgh...

We don't need to add anything further than the previous posts have already said; everything was great! Highly recommended and we hope to return. The breakfast was a highlight, but also the standard of the room and the en suite. We loved the classical music that was playing in our room upon arrival.

My partner and I stayed here for 3 nights at the end of October and couldn’t be more pleased. Ross was very welcoming and the rooms were stunning with original features throughout the house and period furniture. We stayed in room 5 and though facing the road there was no noticeable noise and the room was very spacious with a... More

My husband I stayed at 23 Mayfield in early November as a 25th wedding anniversary celebration. I've had the details of 23 Mayfield in my favourites for years and I am so glad we chose to stay here. The house itself is a mile from the City centre, so far away enough to enjoy some peace and quiet but close... More

We stayed at 23 Mayfield for several nights. We couldn't have been happier with our choice. The rooms were comfortable and ours in particular was very romantic. The common areas were also warm, inviting, and clean. The entire staff, including proprietor Ross were professional, but also personable, and extremely helpful. We also spent a couple nights as a fancier, larger... More

We stayed at this beautiful b&b 3 nights and thoroughly enjoyed it. Ross is a most hospitable host who takes pride in what he does and it really shows. Our room was the Grand Jacobean and it was GRAND, very clean and the most cozy and old world feel to it. We went with another couple and they were just... More

My partner Jake and I stayed at 23 Mayfield while in Edinburgh last week. Our stay was phenomenal. The owner, Ross, couldn't have been more pleasant and helpful, and our room (#5; the Grand Colonial) was handsomely decorated and extremely comfortable. We were also super-impressed by the delicious breakfasts (cooked by Ross himself and served by an extremely friendly server... More
