Having passed through the city, only briefly 30 years ago and more recently having become avid readers of Alexander McCall Smith's books, we had been so keen to come back and absorb the flavours and sights of Edinburgh. How lucky we were to have chanced...More
We loved this place and everything about it. Erlend is a fascinating host to talk to but not intrusive in any way . The breakfast is fabulous ( don't expect traditional cooked breakfast but far more exciting options ) served in a beautiful room lined...More
The only problem with staying with Erlend & Hélène is will you stop laughing long enough to stagger out and enjoy Edinburgh? Quirky doesn't cover it – whimsical might. Swot up on the Wilhelm Scream before you go – that will put you one step...More
A friend and I stayed at 2 Cambridge house for five nights in June. As there are only two B&B rooms we had the whole house, so to speak, which included use of a huge, fantastic sitting room. I had the 'garden room' which was...More
This is the most charming B&B and like no other. It is in a fantastically central location in a stunning Edinburgh townhouse and Erlend and Helene are super hosts. The sheets smell heavenly and are SO soft (!), the rooms are unique and spacious and...More
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.
