I can't say enough about what a fantastic hostess Grace is. She gave us great tips for the Fringe Festival and getting to/from Edinburgh, served a top-notch breakfast and regaled us with stories of her life.

Grace was an excellent hostess. She makes a great breakfast, is friendly and offers information about the easiest ways from point a to b. The b&b is an easy trip via bus into the city centre and is perfectly situated to hike arthur's seat. nice restaurants and bars in the area too.

The proprietess, Grace, goes above and beyond to help her guests feel at home -- without being invasive in any way. She's just wonderful. I felt like I had made a great new friend. On top... More
