Gerald's place is a lovely place to stay, full of charm, the room was downstairs below street level , ran by a senior, well spoken, English Gentleman.. There was a wealth of local information in the room, books and brochures on what to do in Edinburgh and beyond. The walls of this delightful home are similar to a mini- Art...

From the moment my 15-year old son and I arrived, Gerald opened his home and his heart to us. He not only showed us our room with incredibly comfortable beds with fabulous comforters, tea and hot chocolate makings, and organic milk and shortbread biscuits but he also gave us the information necessary to make the most of our 4 days...

It goes without saying that the accommodations were first rate. The king size bed (or 2 twins) was very comfortable, the room very clean and well cared for, thanks to Marie and Magda. It had all the amenities one could need, including the use of a computer laptop. This B&B is very centraly located, yet on a lovely, quiet neighborhood...

My friend and I stayed with Gerald for 3 nights towards the end of July. His hospitality and the comfort of his bed and breakfast made my stay in Edinburgh very memorable.

Gerald's Place is without a doubt the most comfortable B&B I have ever stayed in. The rooms are clean and the beds are superb.

Staying in New Town

Neighbourhood Profile
New Town
Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town, until after dark when strappy dresses come out to play. This is the city’s central business district with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric squares, and self-important statues. But it’s also a very wanderable neighbourhood, with a healthy bustle at almost any time of day and fine people-watching in places like St Andrew's Square which fills with picnickers around lunch. You’ll also find a series of cheerful basement bistros on Hanover Street, while dark Rose Street has something of the feel of an undiscovered back alley and is chock-full of characterful pubs and small independent shops.
