What a perfect place to stay in Edinburgh's New Town neighborhood. I stayed here with my two kids (20y,16y) over Christmas for several days. As I had been in Scotland 30 years ago as a college student, I was eager to share the many delights of Edinburgh with my children, and Gerald's place was the perfect launching place for this purpose. The B&B's location is ideal for exploring Edinburgh's sights, an easy walk to Prince's street with its many shops, Waverly station, Princes Street Gardens, and the Royal Mile. The rooms were so charmingly appointed, with many touches that make one feel right at home, and lots of travel tips/maps/etc. provided so thoughtfully by Gerald. Each bed even came complete with its own big box of chocolates, so no need for anyone to wrestle over them! While we were unfortunately unable to meet the host himself, as he was on holiday with his own family, Gerald's long-time assistant, Justyna, did such a wonderful job of making us feel well-taken care of. We truly enjoyed her breakfasts, both for the delicious food and the conversation. Will definitely stay here again (hopefully to meet Gerald next time!), and recommend it highly to anyone wanting a warm, comfortable, and interesting bed and breakfast experience in Edinburgh.
