This B&B isn't your typical Scottish bed and breakfast - it is much more luxurious and a lot less "homey". We stayed in room 1 which had grand floor to ceiling windows that offered beautiful views of the church across the street, and was tastefully decorated in a chic muted palate. The room immediately invoked a feeling of relaxation and... More

We have stayed here many times over the past few years. We always stay in Room One. It is a magnificent room, with a large sitting area and beautiful views of St. Mary's Cathedral across the street!

I chose Number 29 based on an article I read in Travel and Leisure magazine. Corrine and Simon are wonderful hosts. Their B&B is an historic Georgian house located in the West End across from St. Margaret's Cathedral. A good location-close to buses, the tram and walking distance from Princes Street. I would highly recommend a stay at Number 29.

We stayed in Room 1. I was in awe of the room when I stepped into it with my husband. The room is very spacious. The bedroom area has a nice bathtub and the living room has comfortable couches, a reclining chair and a writing desk. We like the view from the large tall windows in the living room which... More

We stayed in room 1, on the first floor. It was in fact a suite. A huge bedroom with a great bed and then a lounge area that was the width of the house. The big double glazed windows overlooked St Marys Cathedral and flooded the room with light. Bliss. Breakfast was delicious and very generous. The house is on... More

This B&B is slated to close next year, so if you want to stay here, hurry! The owners are very friendly, but are not from the local area, and have never visited the castle, so their local knowledge is somewhat limited. The large rooms have very high ceilings. The rooms are "minimalist" according to the owner, meaning that they are... More

Staying in West End

Neighbourhood Profile
West End
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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A newly refurbished Georgian townhouse situated only a stones throw away from Princes Street. We set out to create a comfortable, home from home, to escape to - a stylish and understated space, where you can sit back and relax at the end of a busy day. The house retains many original features and we have added all the indulgence and modern comforts of the 21st century. Number29 has magnificent views of St Marys Cathedral and is somewhere fresh and interesting to stay, with reassuringly old fashioned hospitality whether you are in Edinburgh for business or for leisure. ... more   less
