When I read others' reviews it promped me to write on myself. Yvonne is a gracious host and the B&B is located in a really great place- handy for the castle, the Scottish Book Trusts events, and other attractions. It is a humble little place and great value for the money. You'll not be able to stay anywhere near the... More

5 stays during the Fringe and we love coming back to Yvonne's. Previously stayed in a couple of other b&b's which were further out and less personal. Staying with Yvonne is like staying with a family member and that is the strength. You feel like the only guests there and nothing is too much trouble. All we want when at... More

Yvonne is a brilliant lady who opens up her apartment in central Edinburgh to guests. The rooms have a nice decor and TV with shared bathroom facilities and her breakfasts are big and delicious. I've stayed with Yvonne twice now and both times the only thing that has let her down has been the comfort of the mattresses and for... More

The B&B is central (if difficult to find) andYvonne is a lovely friendly lady who did her best to make us welcome. However that is where the positives end. if you are paying to stay somewhere you at the very least expect a reasonable standard of cleanliness - you don't find it at Yvonnes. The room - supposedly recently decorated... More

Looking at Yvonne's reviews, it is obvious that different people look at things through different lenses. I think all of the reviews on this site are valuable. Even though all of the reviews are talking about the same place, they come to widely different conclusions based on each individual's perspectives. We thought Yvonne's flat turned into a small B&B was... More

I went to Edinburgh, Scotland, again, for the 8th time, and this time for The Gathering. Each time my husband and I stay with Yvonne. For the price and location, you can not beat the accommodations. She has been fixing up the rooms and they looked nice. Beds in Scotland are firm and that is something you learn to deal... More

We went for THE GATHERING this year and made a return visit to Yvonne's. We have been staying with her off and on for the past 7 years.

Staying in Old Town

Neighbourhood Profile
Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the royal palace – two of Edinburgh’s great set-piece attractions. But there’s lots more exploring to do here down dozens of little alleys, or wynds, while at night the city’s busiest clubs erupt along the Cowgate which is closed to traffic for this purpose.
