My partner and I came to to visit Edinburgh's popular christmas market and to experience a real Scottish ''Hogmanay'' during the festive period. During my stay I stayed in the Baird room , we were the first guests to stay in the room since it had been decorated. The room was small but comfortable and reasonably priced. The room itself...

Had a wonderful visit. Location is a short bus ride from the Royal Mile, with beautiful views of the hills from the bedroom windows. Room was large and comfortable, plush, and well-stocked with amenities. Staff was friendly, welcoming, and helpful. Food was excellent. We will definitely stay again on our next trip to Edinburgh.

We came up to Edinburgh to meet up with a few friends. We found this B&B on Booking.com and the price was pretty good in comparison to everywhere else in Edinburgh. The building is lovely, as were Steven and his parents. It's about a 20 minute walk from the centre and right next to Arthur's Seat. There's a few restaurants...

Had a great stay at ard-na-said. Host Stephen was warm and friendly and gave us good recommendations on what to do in and around Edinburgh. Breakfast was fantastic with excellent choice and perfect fried mushrooms! Bed was very comfy which helps after a long day of sightseeing.

Lovely clean and quiet accommodation in a gorgeous Victorian house. Super breakfast with great haggis. Regular buses into the city only 5-10 minutes away. We stayed in the Rankin room, lovely garden view and super big bathroom with bath and separate shower.

We had a three night break at Ardnasaid. Parked car in their car park and buses to the centre were just a short walk away. The bedroom was spacious and comfortable with a very comfy bed. Enjoyed the breakfasts. Steven was a friendly host and very helpful. All in all an enjoyable stay.
