we received two gift vouchers from our family for our stay. We looked at the website and thought this looks good! I have to say we were not disappointed. The website cannot show the friendliness,dedication, incredible knowledge of the area and the overwhelming hospitality we were shown during our 3 day visit. The breakfasts were out of this world and...

We just loved staying in 23 Mayfield B & B! It was our first visit to Edinburgh, and Ross met us at the door when we arrived. He did a great job of showing us the beautifully decorated living spaces and our lovely room. Our room was large and very quiet at the back of the house, and was really...

As the title implies Ross, the proprietor, is simply the man. Originally planned for a trip to Edinburgh as a solo traveler and at the last minute changes happened to allow my family to join me for a week. Since I only booked a single room, I let Ross know upon arrival that my family would be joining me. I...

My husband and I were in Edinburgh for a wedding and wanted to stay at a b&b and luckily we found 23 Mayfield! The accommodations were fantastic, a large bedroom, very comfy bed and ultra modern bathroom, huge fluffy towels and just beautiful decor. The dining room was just as beautiful. The host Ross was so hospitable, giving us recommendations...

As two women friends traveling Scotland for the first time, we found 23 Mayfield to be the perfect location and accommodation for a safe, comfortable introduction to Edinburgh. Mayfield Gardens is an attractive residential neighborhood with pubs and good eating places, and a short bus ride into Edinburgh's city center. 23 Mayfield occupies a lovely townhouse which the owners have...

We spent two nights at 23 Mayfield. The city of Edinburgh and the time spent at this B&B made us want to spend a whole lot more! Ross and his family have put their meticulous touch on every facet of the facility. We thought that the furniture all looked to fit just right but that's because they are all handmade...

23 Mayfield is such a fantastic place to stay. We were a family of 5 and we had 2 rooms. Ross and his wife welcome you with open arms and I often felt like we were staying with friends rather than paying guests. The whole place is decorated with the utmost style and attention to detail. Stunning quality oozes out...

23 Mayfield was a perfect welcome for our first night in Scotland. Charming, comfortable accommodations and an outstanding breakfast. Ross, our delightful and entertaining host, was as helpful as could be. He and his lovely family were a pleasure to be with, and Ross's culinary talents provided breakfasts on par with any top-notch restaurant. I highly recommend 23 Mayfield.

I travel quite a bit, both for work and pleasure, and I can say wholeheartedly this is now one of my top spots in the world. The property is well kept and very beautiful.

Recently stayed there for 4 nights. Good location right on a bus line about a mile and a half to the city center. (also about a 4 to 5 pound cab ride). Great room with all the amenities. Wonderful sitting area and great breakfast in the morning which is included with several choices. Ross could not have been a better...
