“A Great Stay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2014

A fantastic Guest House to spend a few days or longer. Norrie and Sharon were so welcoming and full of advice on how to make the most of your stay in Edinburgh. Our double room (4) downstairs was so clean and tidy and very modern (if you don't mind black). Our clothes were even put away/hung in the wardrobe even when they were neatly folded in the room. In a prime location ideal for restaurants, café's, shops, the theatre and no less than 3 hire car companies. Train station and Prince's Street is only 10 - 15 mins walk away. The Scottish breakfast was excellent and fuelled you up for a day sight-seeing. A very good selection of cereals, fruit and hot choices were on offer and mouth watering. My wife and I would highly recommend this friendly and very comfortable Guest House for business or pleasure - great value; you won't be disappointed!

We were very pleased with our stay at Ramsay's B&B. Norrie and Sharon made us feel so welcome and at home. The bus stop, shopping, and good restaurants are within easy walking distance. Sharon has made the rooms homey with lovely decor and special bathroom beauty supplies to make the women feel pampered. We had an early departure flight and Norrie and Sharon were so helpful. Norrie got up early to help us with our baggage and had called a taxi which was waiting for us. They even had a sack filled with yogurt, sandwiches, fruit, and juice so we could take breakfast with us. The atmosphere, the good breakfasts, the friendliness of our hosts, and the comfortable rooms all combine to make this a pleasant place
to stay.

Look no further! Ramsay's is the best B&B in Edinburgh. This was my second visit bringing my husband to enjoy staying with Sharon and Norrie. I stayed with my friend in October 2012 and have wanted to return since. I was recognised and welcomed back as if my last visit had been last month! My 2012 Tripadvisor report called Ramsay's both a 'home from home and a special treat' and that was our experience this time too. The breakfast is definitely a treat and well presented as is everything, including the bowls of fruit and toffees. We had a perfect nights sleep on a very comfortable bed.
Nothing is too much trouble and although they were very busy Sharon and Norrie both found time to chat and offer advice about where to eat and how to find our way to different places. You need go no further than Broughton Street for a wide range of excellent restaurants and arty shops. We loved this small village atmosphere in the centre of the city.
We walked everywhere as the weather was good and nowhere is far to walk. There are buses if needed and now the tram can be caught at the terminus on York Place just at the top of Broughton Street. If you are catching a train at Waverley Station it is best to get off the tram at St Andrew Square and walk down to the station as the Princes Street stop is a long walk back.
Thank you again Sharon and Norrie for a very enjoyable stay. We look forward to coming again.

Great find, our first visit to the city and made extra special by staying at Ramsays. Sharon and Norrie went out of there way to make us feel at home, helping with selecting restaurants and attractions to see. Breakfast is great with a large selection and very good quality. Thank you both for a great stay. Helen and Gary Peters

Great value B&B located quite centrally. I walked around town all day long without ever having to take the bus. 10 minutes from Waverley station

Wifi was super fast

Booked the small room but they really made the most of it! Didn't feel small at all and it was nicely designed. Slept really, really well.


Best of all: amazing friendly hosts and really tasty breakfast. I've got a craving for kipper now!

This was our first visit to the city of Edinburgh and Ramsay's B&B made the trip perfect.
The weather was against us for most of our visit, cold and wet but the welcome and assistance we received from Norrie and Sharon more than made up for it. When we returned one afternoon thoroughly wet from the knees down after a Motor Trike excursion Sharon very kindly tumbled our wet jeans etc.
Our room (no 3) overlooked the garden, it was beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean, we both slept really well in the very comfortable bed.
The breakfasts which you order the previous evening were wonderful, we were set up for the day by this meal.
The location is excellent for transportation links, plenty of buses nearby and a tram link to the airport is 5 mins walk away (slightly uphill). The tram is due to start running at the end of May. It is only a 10 min walk to Waverley train station where several tour buses depart from.
We will return to Edinburgh and Ramsay's is at the top of our list.
