I stayed for 5 days at the Balmoral guesthouse and loved everything about it, Great rooms, great breakfast and great location. The owners Marc and Marianne are really helpful. Marianne is an author and signed a copy of her new book called The Blue Suitcase. It's a great read and I thoroughly recommend both the guesthouse and the book.

The guest house is about a mile downhill from town and on the major bus lines. Marc & Marianne served a delicious breakfast, and the showers were wonderful with great water pressure. We loved our stay there and the space was more than we needed. It was a huge bedroom for 2 of us.

Breakfast was terrific, with...

We all had a lovely time at the Balmoral Guesthouse which made up for the rather grey weather of Scotland. We had a large family room on the first floor which we all loved and breakfast was fab. We were given great tips by Marc about places to take the children. There are late supermarkets and lovely restaurants just around...

This is a lovely house in the heart of Edinburgh, near to all the attractions. Marc and Marianne are great hosts and they done a fantastic job in decorating the house in great style but still keeping all the original features of a 150 year old building. However, be assured that the bathrooms are totally up to date. If only...

My parents came to visit me from Paris and they insisted on staying in a traditional Edinburgh Townhouse for this trip. I was recommended this guesthouse by somebody at work and I do not regret my choice. We were given 2 rooms at the top of the house and they were warm and very comfortable. My single room with double...
