“our scottish home away from home <3”
Reviewed 3 April 2012

My friend and I stayed here 3 nights and couldn't have asked for a more lovely place to stay, or lovelier hosts. As college students on our spring break, we were considering the cheap-but-total-crapshoot hostel option, but then we read all the stellar reviews for this b&b and just couldn't resist. Oh my goodness, it was the best decision ever. The room was, of course, very comfortable and stylishly decorated (ipod speaker alarm was a great touch), the delicious breakfast kept us going all day.. but perhaps most importantly, Sharon and Norrie are such sweethearts. On the day of our departure we were leaving crazy-early to catch a Ryanair flight, so we couldn't have breakfast, but Sharon left lunches for us to take to the airport. That was a big "aw, can she be our Scottish mother, please?" moment. Loved Edinburgh, loved them, what more can I say?

We selected this B & B based on previous reviews and the fact that it was located in a busy area with lots of cafes and restaurants close by. It lived up to what we expected and more. Sharon and Norrie made us feel extremely welcome and gave us lots of advice about where to go and what to do. They are very friendly and make you feel very much at ease. Breakfast was excellent with a choice of full Scottish or fresh fruit and yoghurt plus the usual cereals, juice and toast. Certainly substantial enough to set you up for the day. The room was spotless and very comfortable, had everything including free wi fi, tv, coffee and tea. We stayed for three days and had a wonderful time, we would certainly recommend it to anyone reading this review and look forward returning on our next visit. Elaine and Maureen

Room Tip: Not needed, we were happy with the room we got

We stayed in this lovely B&B for 2 nights, and truly enjoyed it. Sharon and Norrie were really helpful and kind, the breakfast delicious, the room very modern, clean and stylish. It is also well located, close to all attractions and with lots of restaurants nearby. We definitely recommend staying in this B&B! Thank you Sharon and Norrie :)

I have been to this B&B several times. Honestly, if I travel to Europe I will always visit Edinburgh to stay at Ramsay´s. Norrie and Sharon are the best hosts apart from excellent human beings. I took a group this time in january and they prepared the whole place for us, paying attention to every single detail. Cleanliness is excellent, breakafast is superb, location is ideal and hosts can´t be better.
The place is beautifully decorated.
I strongly recommend you to stay there. You will receive help with attraction, places where to eat, etc.
Nearby you will find the best pubs and it is a step away from John Lewis for those interesd in shopping. By the way Edinburg is perfect to go shopping.
All in all, hope you enjoy this place as much as I do every time I stay there.

Room Tip: All rooms are the same- comfortable and you will feel better than home!!

Our room was not large, but it was very clean. The window was huge so we had lot's of light, the bed was so very comfortable, the shower a bit of a surprise since we've never seen quite like it before.

The breakfast choices are numerous. The cooked breakfast was so large we (almost) couldn't eat it all :). It was very tasty and freshly prepared.

The hosts are great and very friendly. They had lots of tips and recommendations for sightseeing and dining which turned out great.

When we come back to Edinburgh we0ll definitely stay here again.

This was such a beautiful B&B, my bedroom was light and airy and the interior was stylish and contemporary! The shower was powerful which was great and I have never stayed in a comfier bed! The breakfast in the morning was delicious and the hosts were accommodating and attentive. They were also such lovely people! I felt sad to leave!

We have just stayed at this wonderful B&B. Words cannot emphasise enough just how lovely the property and the owners are. The location is excellent being a stones throw away from Princes Street and the Royal Mile, however there are many excellent bars and restaurants right by. The B&B.

The breakfast is is so filling you will be full well past lunch. The choice is excellent and everything is freshly prepared. The portions are massive!

The room was beautifully decorated and absolutely spotless.

We really hope to be able to stay here again one day.

Many thanks to Sharon and Norrie for providing us with such a lovely stay.
