The house is beautiful, 115 years old yet perfectly maintained. I stayed in a single room - small but completely comfortable. Had my own private (lockable) bathroom across the hall. Breakfast was excellent, and there's a beautiful lounge to sit in and read. Situation is to the South of Edinburgh, too far to walk from the centre but with an... More

The room is small. Very small, as the en-suite was built in a corner inside it. Beside this, clean, functional, good breakfast. Slept well, not at all noisy, although the city centre is a 10' drive or ride away, bust stop just round the corner...

We certainly would recommend Number 45 for a relaxing place to stay after a busy day of touring. It is a lovely home in a residential area. Although a few kms from downtown, it is very accessible by public transportation. Our room was very clean and comfortable and the hosts were very accomodating when preparing the full breakfast.

Irene and Will are lovely hosts and great cooks. The bus stop is one small block away to city center, or its only a 7 pound taxi into the city. Fantastic places to eat are in walking distance. The rooms have everything you need with views of the charming backyards or sleepy street out front. Tons of charm.

Stayed here for one night in March 2016 and would highly recommend it. Lovely building in a quiet location but still only five minutes away by taxi from the city centre and royal mile. Really friendly owners and great breakfast in the morning.
