“Great BNB”
Reviewed 27 August 2014

We recently stayed three nights at Abbotsford Guest House with our granddaughter. Paola was a terrific hostess, breakfasts were wonderful and she and her family were so friendly and helpful. The room was en suite, clean, very large and comfortable. Very close to the attractions in Edinburgh. Would definitely stay again. Thanks for your great hospitality.

Quite a good B&B not very far from the centre of Edinburgh. The landlady was friendly, the room was nice and clean but sometimes quite noisy. Breakfast was quite ok, not too much to choose from, but the landlady's daughter serving breakfast was nice.

All in all quite good value for money, but, being in a busy city, with less attention to details and heartfelt service compared to the B&Bs we stayed at in the Highlands.

We travelled to Edinburgh for Commonwealth Games and Fringe. Location, superb. 1 mile city centre. Easy walk, numerous buses. Accomodation was clean and well presented. Breakfast was a delight. Posh dinning room excellent food. Paola looks after her guests including good tips for tourists. Shops at the top of road selling everything you could want. That said Pilrig Road is quiet. I left my spectacles in the room. These were forwarded to me promptly without fuss.

Abbotsford Guest House is one of the nicest B&Bs I ever stayed. It's easy to find by car coming from the airport. If you are lucky, you can park on the street, additional parking places are available just around the corner. The city is in walking distance, and a bus stop is around the corner. The rooms are well equipped, B&B style. The breakfast is served in a very elegant dining room (just the dining room is worth to stay here!). The breakfast itself is of good quality; food preferences are taken seriously, and you get what you prefer. The family is very flexible and takes truly care of their guests. The Pilrig street can be pretty busy during the day (that's the central location!). If you want to rest, the (modern!) windows should be closed, and it's easy to get some rest. Wi-fi is free, and it's not only free, it's also working pretty well!
Abbotsford Guest House is on my list of favorite B&Bs for future visits.

A good, convenient spot within walking distance of the city centre and with ample on-street parking. A large, clean and comfortable room in a quiet location so we got a really good sleep! Some attention to detail was lacking, e.g. A torn curtain and stained carpet.
A very small bathroom in our room. No real cause for complaint and the owner is a very pleasant lady.

Room Tip: A quiet area so room choice should not matter.

Cosy room (single with shared bathroom). Very clean, pretty. Beautiful breakfast room, good breakfast. Good location on bus route or 15 min walk to Royal Mile. Modern shower facility. Will definitely stay there again.
