We arrived for a three night stay in early October. John and Margaret were very welcoming and showed us to a very comfortable upstairs room. There was in room tea and coffee available to make and relax with after a day of sight-seeing. This room also had a television if one cared to catch up on the news or shows....

A perfect place to recover after a long day of travel. Very easy to get to by bus and ideally situated between the airport and city centre.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to visit...

We stayed here for one night before an early start at the airport. Thistle Dhu is just minutes from both the airport and city bypass. We didn't go into the city, but there seems to be an excellent bus service from just outside. There is a huge assortment of restaurants and takeaways all within walking distance. The room we stayed...

Had to find a B&B at the last minute due to an early morning flight. Came across this gem and couldn't have been more pleased. John and Margaret were very welcoming and friendly. They booked me a taxi for an early morning lift to the airport, provided extra coffee and cups for my friends who dropped me off. The room...

Lovely B&B between airport and city center of Edinburgh. Even though the B&B sits on a busy road, we heard no noise and were grateful that travel to and from the airport and the city was so easily managed. The B&B was clean and comfortable; the breakfast was first rate; and our hosts were delightful. I would stay here again...

My wife, son and myself stayed at Thistle Dhu for 1 night, as we returned from a holiday abroad to Edinburgh Airport. Our flight arrived at 12.15 am and we did not arrive at the B&B until 1am. Both Margaret and John had gone out of their way to make sure that we checked in safely, even at that late...

Margaret and John were extremely welcoming and helpful during our stay. Their BnB was very clean and well kept. Our room was comfortable, and having been our first night in Scotland, our stay was a great introduction to a beautiful and friendly country. You certainly won't leave hungry as their breakfasts include a traditional Scottish breakfast (beans, fried egg, hash...
