We stayed at the Art-House Morita B&B in July. The B&B and its owners (2 men, Kozo and John), are a quirky couple. The B&B itself is like an Aladdin's Cave, filled with all sorts of ornaments, trinkets and art work. It seemed that almost every square inch of wall space was covered in some sort of painting, which came...

We stayed 3 nights with Kozo in the twin room. Indeed the house gives a different feel from most B&Bs because of all the paintings and artefacts in every part of the house. The breakfast was good. Kozo was very attentive while John was very chatty and opening to sharing his views. You will marvel at the passion and drive...

I visited scotland first time, and stayed here first 2 days and the last day of a journey. The guest room is fantastic!! having special time surrounded by art collection. I appreciate the hosts Mr Kozo and Mr John who advice me about transportation and tourist spot. Look forward to coming back again.

I feel guilty for taking so long to write this review. And if it was not for the other reviews on trip advisor I would never have found them. Art-House Morita is a home away from home. Travelling solo was made easy with the friendly and helpful advice from both Kozo and John via emails and personal contact. The home...

I stayed at Art-House Morita for two nights in November 2011. I took buses from the Edinburgh airport. It is fairly easy to get to the Art-House Morita by bus. It was, however, a bit complicated to find a bus stop on the North Bridge to the Art-House Morita. The hosts, Kozo and John are very nice people. I had...

A truly unique experience. Art House Morita, as other reviewers have noted, is more than a simple bed and breakfast; it also an arts trust headquarters and it houses a fabulous collection of Scottish and Japanese works. The place has a wonderful, homey feel and the advantage of staying as a guest is that you peruse the collection at your...

Henry Higgins (the guy in My Fair Lady) would have loved this place. I know we did. Beautiful art + personalized service + fine evening dining. Great breakfast too, including a vegetarian option. Some rooms share large bathrooms. Other than that, it's 5 star living at a 2 star price. Great location - a few minutes to city center by...

“Because its only 3 rooms you can pay by cash or PayPal. My top tip is that if you do want to book, contact them directly to get the best price (as then they don't pay the agents commission).”

“All the rooms are located on the ground floorand are equally beautiful, warm and every detail for one's comfort has been given consideration....a choice of pillows, toiletries and a little handled basket for carrying to and fro from one of the two large bathrooms, one with large handicap shower, the other with a large bathtub.....the rooms are perfect for sleeping, comfortable and quiet....there are even slippers, male and female should need be....the art works on the walls will provide plenty of stimulation you will never miss a T.V. .......enjoy your stay....”
