Stayed for one night, paid for by the university, for an interview. The rooms was spacious and comfortable and the owners were very friendly and charming. The house was very quiet and is only 15 minutes from town by bus. Thoroughly recommended.

Beautiful house. Our room was on the second floor facing the back so was very quiet. Bed very comfortable and everything was spotless and luxurious. Excellent breakfast and enjoyed Duncan's banter at breakfast. You can find cheaper B&B in the same area but Glendale was worth the bit extra and would highly recommend it.

I stayed once in 2011 and again in 2016. The location is not great, as in you may get woken up by traffic, but otherwise, the place is excellent. The property (as much of Mayfield) is full of character, with wonderful garden and a wide variety of period features. Unlike in 2011, the place looks very lovingly maintained, with all...

I stayed at Glendale House for four nights when I went to various Edinburgh Festival events. My room (Lomond) was spacious and quiet. Good shower and excellent breakfasts. Duncan and Elaine are gracious hosts. The house is opposite Cameron Toll shopping centre which has a decent size Sainsbury's along with a selection of high street shops. It's a 45 minute...

We just caught a bus into the city from the high street and there is a shopping centre right across the street. Parking was available at the...

Stayed at the Glendale in Edinburgh for three nights. We were made very welcome by Duncan & Elaine. Very quiet location and a lovely spacious room. Breakfast was always looked forward to. Two miles from the City centre. So much to do not enough time.

We really enjoyed our stay at Glendale House.The B&B is about 2 miles from the city centre, but the walk in is very easy and pleasant, and if you prefer not to walk there are also regular, cheap buses into the city which you can catch from just a few yards away from the B&B.

This is a lovely guesthouse, very close to the University campus. Although for turists it may be far from town. The owners (Duncan and Elaine) really make you feel home. Nice room and breakfast, I particularly recommend the porridge.

A very nice place in Edinburgh ! Not in the city center, quiet, but very near either by walking or by bus. The owners are really charming persons, alway ready to make you enjoy better your stay in Edinburgh. Very good Scottish breakfasts. Definitely a very good place, we will re-book there, if coming back to Edinburgh.
