My boyfriend and I stayed at Adam Drysdale House for two nights. The owners are extremely welcoming and Janette cooks an excellent breakfast! The location is fantastic and there is parking available. The only thing we'd say is that there wasn't much noise isolation between the bedroom and the corridor which meant it could be a bit noisy at times,...

Almost "very good". The very good points; Inexpensive for a double with ensuite and full Scottish breakfast in Edinburgh. Lovely, genuine welcome and very accommodating & pleasant owners. Despite what is on some websites, there is actually onsite parking if you book ahead properly. Good location for what we wanted to do in Edinburgh. Clean, warm, and comfortable bed in...

Small and friendly guest house in a very convenient area. Breakfasts were cooked fresh to order and there was plenty of choice and a fresh pot of coffee. Would definately use again. Room ok and very clean but the en-suite was very small. Wouldnt put me off though.

We went for a short two day break to Edinburgh and found Adam Drysdale House had a last minute cancellation. Lucky for us. Our stay was so enjoyable with the staff being so cheerie and Janette keeping everyone in a relaxed mood. Room was excellent, food first class our only problem was we wished we could have stayed longer.
