“Thank you Heather”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 October 2013

Hedges Bed and Breakfast was the best place to stay in Edinburgh. We were able to walk to everything. The buss to all the other sites stopped right across from us. there are 3 lovely rooms decorated with Scottish charm. Heather made us feel so welcome, the breakfast was fabulous. Thank you Heather for making the beginning of our 3 week tour of Scotland so memorable, and going out of your way to forward my friends clothes she forgot, to Glasgow, they were waiting for her when we returned from the train tour. Hope we can return someday we will defiantly stay at the Hedges. Caryl and Glen MacMaster

Room Tip: 2 rooms in front and 1 in back, with garden view, all were great. We were in front great view, beaut...

Reviewed all the comments on Tripadvisor before booking. Everything that was posted was very true. Very clean and comfortable, great breakfast every morning and Heather was a great host. We will definitely book again. Thanks Heather for making us feel so welcome.

We stayed at the hedges for just 2 nights, but so wish we could've stayed for more. Heather is the most wonderful host! - she even packed us breakfast to take way because we had a early highlands tour! The Hedges has a very warm and cosy feel to it and yummy breakfast - Heather makes a yum Haggis. The rooms are Beautiful and very clean bathrooms and also has the most comfiest bed. Easy walking distance to the Royal mile/ restaurants/mall. A visit to Calton Hill is amust for the best views of Edinburgh ! (which is just opposite to the hedges.) We loved Heather and the Hedges and will be definitely be back!

Just got back from a 2-night stay at the Hedges. From the minute we arrived (after a fog-delayed flight), Heather was warm and welcoming; she was attentive and took time and care to ensure that our stay was comfortable and that any needs we had were met. The location is wonderfully central yet the room was quiet in a way that upmarket city centre hotels can never hope to be. The bed was nice and comfy (I just hate uncomfortable beds when on holiday!) - and the room and ensuite were well equipped and maintained. We loved the little box in the wardrobe, full of every conceivable knick-knack that you might want whilst on holiday, yet might have forgotten or not thought to bring (including sewing kit, mini torch, umbrellas and rain ponchos!). Breakfast was beautifully cooked and presented and served quickly. A gem of a find - we were so pleased with our choice and will certainly aim to stay here again if we return to Edinburgh.

Room Tip: Only 3 rooms but all on ground floor - as is the breakfast room - so good for access.

I rarely write reviews but this one deserves it. Run by a lovely lady who is the perfect amount of helpful, this place is a total gem. It's in a perfect spot to get into the city by foot, is quiet, clean, cosy, well maintained and highly recommended. Great breakfasts too. :)

My husband and I stayed at the Hedges for a short break in Edinburgh at the beginning of September and we were very happy with our choice. The room was beautiful and we arrived to a warm welcome. Breakfasts are delicious and ample, and the Hedges is very well placed for walking into the city centre. The attention to detail in the room was lovely - we arrived to find a wrapped chocolate on each pillow - and we were given plenty of information about what to do and see as it was our first stay in the city. Thank you Heather and Ian for a lovely visit - we hope to be back soon!

My wife and I chose The Hedges for a short weekend break, based on already excellent Trip Advisor reviews. We weren't disappointed, this is a comfortable and extremely well appointed property in a pleasant and convenient part of the city.

Heather has the role of hosting down to a tee, we were made to feel welcome, provided with helpful information and fed & watered to our satisfaction.

Wouldn't hesitate to make a return visit.
