Duncan and Elaine are so unbelievably welcoming, friendly and accommodating. The breakfast served by Elaine was delicious and they always come up for a chat in the morning to make you feel at home. The rooms and toilets were immaculate and beautiful. The bed was one of the most comfortable that I have slept in compared to most hotels and B&Bs. Blue (the most beautiful cat ever) was such a lovely companion that makes your day!

Delightfully refined. A Victorian house tastefully refurbished. I enjoyed a two night stay here as part of a visit to Edinburgh University. The hosts are super friendly and helpful in every way when I asked for directions and places to eat for dinner. My double room was immaculate and well furnished. Brilliant breakfast too. Definitely look forward to a return visit one day. I also ate at the nearby Old Bell which was also superb.

Stayed one night with my daughter who had a Japanese exam in Edinburgh. Really pleased that this place was available as it had a lovely homely feel. Very clean throughout. Breakfast was fresh and tasty with plenty of variety. Only 15 minutes into the city by bus. Will try and stop here again when the next exam comes up. Thank you for being accommodating to our very anxious 15 year old who struggles in social situations.

Immaculately clean, warm, comfortable, and with cosy decor. The hosts are super friendly and helpful. They even had the fire lit at breakfast time which was a very nice touch. Excellent location for the University and nearby shops and good wifi.

Stayed for one night, paid for by the university, for an interview. The rooms was spacious and comfortable and the owners were very friendly and charming. The house was very quiet and is only 15 minutes from town by bus. Thoroughly recommended.
