This B&B is run by a very sweet and genuine couple. The room was nice, clean and comfortable. The breakfast was nice and the bus ride to Edinburgh city centre only take 15 mins. The bus stop is right outside the house.

On first overall introduction . Quite outstanding & reasonably priced. Clean, well-maintained. Street parking, Reliable bus service to town centre. However, the surprise, was the insistency of removing shoes, by the front door (irrelevant of wet or muddy). Not come across this before. The proprietor, very polite & helpful, although did not meet Mrs. Proprietor, which I'd have preferred, at...

I have stayed in the crioch b&b a few times whilst working in and around Edinburgh and I must admit I've never known cleanliness like it, it's absolutely spot, I actually look forward to working away in Edinburgh now just so i get to stay at crioch.

My friend and I spent three nights at the Crioch on the recommendation of a friend and I was not disappointed in the least. The house sets high standards of cleanliness and the "no shoes indoors" policy is no doubt conducive to this (I happened to bring slippers with me, which was useful). I found the location to be quiet...

I spent two nights in this charming guesthouse. The rom was small, but had all I needed. The bathroom (en suite)was modern and spotlessly clean, The bed was super, and Dora and her husband were wonderfully helpful. The breakfast was super, I particularly enjoyed all the fresh fruit with my cornflakes. The bus from the bus stop outside tok me...

On business in Edinburgh for a fortnight, my work colleague and myself could not get booked into our usual hotels due to the festival, however our secretary managed to get us into the Crioch. What a surprise we got when arriving, the welcome from proprietor Dora was lovely and warm, the rooms thoroughly clean, information of local eating places were...

After a wonderful stay here many years ago we opted to return to Crioch when we again visited Edinburgh. Of course with two small children in tow we knew our experience would be different (we needed a larger room for a start!) and we were more than a little apprehensive about how the stay would go. As it turned out...

“No lift so if you find stairs difficult ask for a second floor room as not as many stairs. The area is quiet.”
