We stayed at No. 45 overnight in April. After having a bad experience previously with another B&B in Edinburgh, we were a bit unsure about staying in a B&B again and not a brand name hotel, however, this little B&B is just perfect.
We were welcomed by Irene, one of the owners, who showed us to our room and she gave us guidelines on the local area, which was most helpful, as we were attending an event.
The B&B itself is an old fashioned house converted into a B&B, but it still had the feeling of a tradtitional house. Our room (sorry don't know the number as it wasn't on the door) was immaculately clean. It was spacious, however, I felt that the bathroom was a wee bit small, but for all the time we were there, its irrelevant. The bed was the most comfortable I have slept in, in all my years of travelling/staying in hotels/B&Bs and could have happily slept for days. It was so cosy and we both slept really, really well.
We had breakfast before checking out. On entering the dining room, the large dining table was set beautifully and the linen tartan napkins were a nice touch, even for us Scottish visitors.
Again, we were met by Irene, who gave us a big pot of tea to start off what turned out to be a terrific cooked breakfast, made by her husband (whose name I can't remember)! There was also the choice of cereal, fresh fruit and yoghurt.
I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. I didn't want to go home. I just wanted to stay in the comfortable bed and have breakfast cooked for me again.
