I stayed 3 nights in this very nice B&B. Janette is a charming hostess who takes very well of her guests. Good location in short walking distance to the city centre and Napier University. Clean room with very good bed. Good offer of toiletries. Breakfast offers nice selection with real Scottish breakfast and ground coffee. Will definitely come back.

We had a very comfortable stay in Adam Drysdale House. Janette was very friendly and made us feel extremely welcome. We enjoyed a lovely homecooked breakfast every day and the room was clean and nicely decorated. Location is very close to the city centre and we were able to walk everywhere.

My sister Sandra and I stayed for four nights at the end of August 2014. The owners are both absolutely lovely - nothing is too much trouble. Comfortable, clean rooms and a lovely breakfast. Just a short walk to the castle and Princes Street. Would most definitely stay again!

Stayed here during the Fringe! Recieved a decent rate and stayed in a newly renovated room along with our own newly renovated bathroom! Close to everything and Jeanette was very accommodating. A cozy and terrific stay.
