I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Ashdene House. It's a wonderful location in a neighborhood with a few minutes' walk to the bus stop. It's clear from other reviews that "walking distance" is a matter of preference. It is just under 2 miles to many of the Old Town sites, but the roads are safe and quite walkable with lots... More

I choose this place from the Tripadvisor's comments and was pleased with the results. Although I find this is not walking distance from the City Center, the bus services are great. The House is located on a quiet street which is good when you've been walking all day and want to sleep with the window opened. Very good breakfasts with... More

After bouncing between multiple hotels and B&Bs in Scotland over two weeks we ended with a three night stay at the Ashdene House. This was a last minute find as everything near the city center was booked up. I Was pretty disappointed that we were not in walking distance to the attractions, but in the end it was for the...

Ashdene House is the most quiet and beautifull house just a few meters from the busy streets of Edinburgh. Breakfast is good and you can almost have what ever you like - Caroline will make it :) If posible we will come back and stay more than the two nights we spend there.

My first stay at a B&B. Very much enjoyed staying here for 5 days. Breakfast was fantastic, so fresh and healthy. Quiet and private house. Location is great. I walked down into Edinburgh city, the Royal Mile area and all around every day. Good restaurants within a few blocks of Ashdene House. Yes, I would stay there again.

Spent the Jubilee weekend at Ashdene. Very impressed with the standard of accommodation and the cleanliness of the place. Largest bedroom we have ever stayed in, light and airy with quality fitments. The en-suite shower room was also of a generous size and was spotless. The attention to detail such as all brass fitments nicely polished shows the good standard... More
