The place is a very nice bed and breakfast within walking distance from the Haymarket train station. It's on a quiet street but with pubs and supermarkets nearby. You can get to the Prince Street (centre of Edinburgh's tourist and shopping area) in 5-10 minutes...More
We only spent a couple of days in Edinburgh and the location was ideal for getting the tram to Edinburgh Castle and the Royal Mile. After busy days of exploring it was a treat to come back to our lovely room and comfortable bed. A...More
Just to reiterate all the other reviews - This is one of the best B&Bs we've stayed in and we've traveled extensively both in the states and in Europe. Derek is great with information, breakfast and conversation. The room was very large and very well...More
Nice and clean room, very friendly owner, amazing breakfast (try the scottish full!), quiet neighbourhood... It was great!

Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in industrial Britain had their most desirable neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes. Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along
the district’s busy main roads. Lothian Road connects to southern Edinburgh and harbors a vague entertainment district: three theatres and the city’s main indie cinema. All attract a select crowd, the sort who appreciate the Saturday Edinburgh’s Farmers’ Market around the corner. The West End’s other great thoroughfare, Shandwick Place, is dominated by trams trundling out to the suburbs and airport, and shoppers picking up last-minute items before hopping aboard.
