It’s not hard to find 23 superlatives to define 23 Mayfield. Our 4 day stay to explore Edinburgh was exceptional, thanks to welcoming owner Ross Birnie. 23 Mayfield is perfectly located: a short walk to Holyrood Park and Arthur’s Seat and on a main bus route into Edinburgh, or a 30 minute leisurely stroll with lots to see on the...

Private and secure parking at rear behind large metal gates. 3 parking bays to the front next to garden path. At the risk of repeating the website detail the room was wood panelled including original window shutters in this elegant large Victorian period house. Wardrobe and luggage stands. Bathrobes provided. Large double bed for tall people like us and excellent...

Oh yes, this was a fantastic hotel, great staff, great food, great comfort. I would totally recommend this place to anyone that would be travelling to Edinburgh as part of a group or solo. the place offers pretty much everything from wake up calls to late night suppers, round the clock room service

Stayed 1 night in the newly refurbished twin room number 3 with a friend last night and loved it! Room and guest house in general is gorgeous, so many lovely little touches which make your stay feel special. The owner and his family/staff couldn't be more friendly and helpful. Great location, lovely place, delicious breakfast, so much value for money!...

I stayed at this great BB back in July 2016 and was really impressed with my stay start to finish. I would recommend it if you are looking for something quaint and homely for 2 or 3 nights max. Oh, and the breakfast was amazing :)

This was our second trip to Mayfield and just as perfect as the first time. Edinburgh is by far the most beautiful city we have visited and there really is not a single thing you could improve about this hotel. Easily the best i have stayed in for many years and I stay in probably 20 different hotels a year....

I've stayed in maybe two dozen hotels throughout the UK in the last couple of years and I can honestly say that 23 Mayfield is easily the most welcoming and luxurious place I've ever stayed. Sumptuous beds and a breakfast that could not possibly be beaten in terms of choice, quality and presentation.

Love it here, my home from home annually for a special break, thanks Ross as always for your hospitality, cleanliness and friendliness! A different room this time but definitely of a similar theme, really cosy., almost posh Sherlockian Victorian but with Scottish flair. Cheers and see you next year.

I usually stay at the excellent 23 Mayfield 2/3 times a year and as usual after my latest visit it never disappoints...... Good value for money for very high end accommodation and probably the best breakfast you will get anywhere.

You guys. This place is a complete gem. The owner bought and renovated this old house and turned it into the most amazingly beautiful B&B I've ever been to. The design, the furniture (mostly antiques), the small details - I was in love. When you go to an incredibly historic place like Edinburgh, it only makes sense to stay in...
