The breakfast was freshly made and of exceptional standard. We were given some amazing recommendations of places to visit, eat and drink. Really beautiful views from our room, perfectly warm and fully...

My sister and I visited Edinburgh at the weekend and stayed at Barony House. Having never been to Edinburgh before we were a little unsure of our bearings.....that was until we checked into this B&B and met Paul the owner. I am quite a well traveled person and have stayed all over but never have I met someone as friendly...

Absolutely lovely place, very comfortable, brilliantly ran, it really feels like home. Susan and Paul are really welcoming and helpful and the breakfasts are to die for - secret ingredients were never revealed though ;) The B&B is located in a quiet and safe neighbourhood, walking distance from the picturesque Arthur's Seat and not a long walk from the city...

The staff is extremely friendly and helpful with what you should do with your time in beautiful Edinburgh. The location is ideal as busses run into town right across the street. The breakfast was one of the highlights with fresh baked breads and meaningful buffet. Thank you!

Stayed for work but really enjoyed the personal touches here. I booked directly with the owners and saved money but I also appreciate the flexibility of dealing directly with the owners just in case I needed anything altered with my booking. We originally booked for 2 nights but when we needed an extra night they simply changed it in 5...

Barony House is a short bus ride, or a pleasant stroll away from the city centre. Our room (#4) was perfect with all amenities you could hope for (really appreciated the sherry - nice touch). But what sets Barony House apart from other places you might want to stay are the fantastic hosts. Paul has a wealth of local insider...

Great location, right along the bus route to all the major Edinburgh sites. Big gorgeous Gergian guesthouse with beautifully-appointed rooms. Hosts Paul and Susan Johnson are amiable and age to help you make your stay fun and memorable. And the breakfasts-- oh my god, the breakfasts!

We had the pleasure of staying at Barony house for the second time and enjoyed it very much, just like the year before. Paul and Susan really keep an effort to improve the quality of their service. The breakfast was just as delicious as last year and we had been craving the blueberry pancakes for weeks before our arrival. We...
