John is a great person, very kind and helpful. There are many tour guidelines, taxi numbers, maps, restaurants recommends book in the room and lounge. You can tell from that Jhon is extremely kind-hearted and consider the needs of customers in every way. And the bath room in house is extremely clean. I sincerely recommend every student or travel purpose...

Me and my fiance had a wonderful weekend staying at McCraes on 12th-14th February. Beautiful townhouse only 15-20 minutes walk from the city centre which was really convenient for the sightseeing we wanted to do. We drove up to Edinburgh and were able to park right outside the B&B for free over the weekend and only had to pay for...

Loved staying here, the owner John is so friendly and kind and makes the most delicious breakfasts! The room was spacious, clean and most importantly, warm! Do not hesitate with booking here, you will not be disappointed. It's a short walk from the centre, or an inexpensive taxi ride (around £4/5) Can't wait to return.

I booked a twin room but was upgraded to a double room with a king-sized bed and an independent bathroom for free. The bed room is pretty,spacious and clean, and the dinning room offers hearty light and cooked breakfast.

Clean, Calm, Comfortable and very importantly - Central. A short walk from Dundas Street and the "heart" of the City. We enjoyed our stay on a stormy windy rainy weekend, and were glad to retreat back from the weather to our warm and comfortable room.
