The Victorian Townhouse is in a row of elegant buildings that curves round a railed park full of beautiful trees and manicured gardens. The rooms are beautifully decorated with elegant rugs, curtains, paintings and ornaments appropriate to the style of the building.

Our stay at this B&B was perfect, the rooms were spacious and very clean, the hostess was so kind and wonderful, I felt as if I had known her for years. We would gladly recommend this B&B to friends, and if we get a chance to go back to Scotland, we would definitely stay there again. C & J Evans

We had a fantastic trip to Edinburgh. The accomodation was fantastic. Aileen was a brilliant host and all the little extra touches and effort she goes to to make sure her guests enjoy the stay really makes a difference. The room was clean, comfortable and welcoming. We will stay here when in Edinburgh again.

Spent two wonderful nights at the Victorian Town House, Aileen is the ultimate host - always a smile and most helpful with anything we required. Although the weather was bitterly cold our room was always warm inviting and comfortable, slept like a log. Location just perfect, minutes from Haymarket Station and a little further to Princess Street all easily walkable....

Staying in West End

Neighbourhood Profile
West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in industrial Britain had their most desirable neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes. Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along the district’s busy main roads. Lothian Road connects to southern Edinburgh and harbors a vague entertainment district: three theatres and the city’s main indie cinema. All attract a select crowd, the sort who appreciate the Saturday Edinburgh’s Farmers’ Market around the corner. The West End’s other great thoroughfare, Shandwick Place, is dominated by trams trundling out to the suburbs and airport, and shoppers picking up last-minute items before hopping aboard.
