Stayed here for the May Bank Holiday weekend and we can honestly say we have never stayed anywhere so well presented. The room was top class and the bed.......oh, the bed was devine!! Maggie was a wonderful host and the breakfast was gorgeous. Dovecot House is a short walk from the centre of Corstophine and within walking distance of Edinburgh...

I was so surprised that the pics i viewed on line were exactly like what the house looked like. Maggie made me feel comfortable and relaxed. She gave advise on what I shouldn't miss and where I could find what I wanted. Her husband was very wonderful and her helper was so wonderful.. This is the best experience I have...

Stayed at Dovecote House for two nights last week and was very impressed by the quality of the house, the friendly service, great value and the beautiful room and most importantly, the wonderful breakfasts! Maggie and her partner really made me feel welcome and it was a real pleasure to stay there.

Dovecot House is a small, beautifully decorated and furnished B&B which is also the home of Maggie MacKenzie and her family (though you wouldn't know it). The house is Victorian or Edwardian, with a clean modern decor. We had a double room, which was equipped with all the comforts, including a shelf of interesting books to dip into. The bathroom...

Dovecot House is just a brilliant Bed &Breakfast! It is located close to the airport and is only a bus ride away from downtown. As a vegetarian, I loved that there was always something wonderful for me to eat! Maggie and Colin are such lovely people and informative hosts - they will make you feel at home and just like...

Very neat and clean house in a quiet and peaceful neighborhood not far from numerous bus stops (lines 12, 26, 31, and 1) made for an extremely comfortable and efficient location to relax after a long day of sightseeing. Hosts were very, very kind and tailored to our every need. Honestly there was nothing I felt needed improvement, I would...

For my first of what I hope to be many visits to Scotland, this was the perfect "home away from home". Maggie & Colin were the perfect hosts - and took such good care of us. In my travels all throughout much of the UK, and my stays at several places (which were all nice), this was by far the...

My wife and I happened onto the Dovecot House on a previous trip in 2005. We came back partly because of the spacious rooms and comfortable beds but mostly for how the hostess makes you feel welcome, like she is glad you are there, and you don't feel like an outsider. I never would have thought to leave my car...

Dovecot House is a beautiful B&B that is ideally located for getting to/from downtown and the airport. Breakfast was delicious. Maggie and Colin were excellent hosts and really made me feel like one of the family. I highly recommend booking the Dovecot house if you are going to spend any time in Edinburgh.

A tastefully restored Victorian Villa located in a quiet tree lined road within the historic conservation village of Corstorphine yet only 10 minutes from the city centre and airport. Period features have been retained yet the interior is light, contemporary and welcoming. An ideal 'retreat' in the City or base for touring. ... more   less
