After a disappointing experience checking into a nearby B&B that we booked online the night before, we stumbled upon the Gifford House, with nowhere to stay for the weekend, and asked if they had any availability.

Loved this B&B in Edinburgh. Our room overlooked Arthur's Seat. The bed was very comfortable and the room was very clean. Breakfast was wonderful with cold and hot choices. Margaret and David worked around everyone's schedule when serving breafast. There are stairs so be aware of this with luggage. The bus stops very close!

Just spent 4 nights at Gifford House and we can't recommend highly enough.A warm welcome from Margaret, a lovely, spotless room with great facilities (incl. DAB radio & wi-fi) and a wonderful view. At breakfast a great choice is on offer and nothing is too much trouble for David. A short 10 minute walk gets you to the nearest shops...

Very warm welcome from Margaret on arrival, room was spotless and very spacious. Hearty breakfast and lovely to chat to David. Bus stops very handy outside to get into the city centre. Would recommend the Gifford to everyone and will definitely stay there in the future should we need to stay in Edinburgh again!

You can easily get to the city center by bus (10-15 mins), the breakfest is typically scotish and made with so much pleasure and warmth and the couple keeping this b&b is absolutly friendly and answeres every question with much kindness. My girlfriend and I had a wonderful time...

Went to Edinburgh recently to take in the Edinburgh Tattoo and really lucked out with this family run guest house. We stayed for four days and enjoyed great hospitality. Margaret and David went out of their way to make our stay as enjoyable as possible arranging a bus tour of the highlands for us which was absolutely spectacular, great location...
