My husband and I stayed here for a few nights at the end of March. Lydie greeted us when we arrived and she is so sweet! The breakfast was by far the best breakfast we had while visiting the U.K. We would definitely stay here again- location is GREAT! Quiet with lots of good restaurants around.

Got in on a late Saturday afternoon and weren't expecting to see Lydia but low and behold she was there to meet us. The house is beautiful and very well kept. Fantastic homey touches and the owners made every accommodation with a smile and wonderful attitude. Our rooms (we traveled with another couple) were on the top floor and were...

Beautiful b&b near you he city centre of Edinburgh. The rooms are large and beautiful. The reception was splendid although we arrive outside the normal hours. A personal letter with tips and tricks, a city map,... Really a shame that we had to skip the breakfast it smelled very good. Thanks.

Stayed in one of the rooms on the top floor - bright, clean and cozy with a view over the school. Really welcoming staff and owner. The breakfast was abundant and tasty. The location of the property is not in the historical centre but still very convenient - 20 mins walk. For this price you really can't get much better....

This gem of a guest house is tucked away in a cul-de-sac just off of bruntsfield place. Its easily reached from the centre with a short walk or buses. The area it's self is surrounded by lovey boutiques and independent shops ( much like Gloucester Road in Bristol) and fantastic restaurants. The breakfast was superb me or my wife couldn't...

I cannot speak more highly of this wonderful bed and breakfast. Huge choice at breakfast, vegetarians, vegans and GF's will feel especially well looked after here. I particularly enjoyed the vanilla pancakes with maple syrup. The house is very comfortable and peaceful. Communication was good at all times and clear guest information emailed before our stay. Lydie upgraded us to...
