We had a lovely one night stay in this guest house. As we normally stay in a hotel not someone's home, I was a bit nervous that the owners would be too "chatty". This was not the case. Margaret was welcoming but just let us get on with our stay. The room was perfect, toiletries, hairdryer, tv etc all great....

The staff were fantastic. Very lovely and the breakfast was positively amazing! The room itself was very clean, spacious and very comfortable. Looking out the window, you can see Arthur's seat in the distance - only a 5-10 minute walk away. A bit far from the Royal Mile, but still within a brisk 25 minute walk. Would definitely stay again!...

Gifford House is a traditional B&B which is a reasonable distance out from the centre of Edinburgh. It would be possible to walk into town fairly easily, but we usually got one of the apparently frequent buses in and out which only takes around 15 mins. Our room was a family room - although there were only 2 of us....

We stayed at the Gifford Bed and Breakfast in September, 2016. It was a wonderful experience. David and Margaret were very accommodating. They made sure we had everything we needed. We were assigned a beautiful and very clean room. The breakfast was great. I highly recommend the Gifford B&B.
