Edinburgh's accommodation is usually over-expensive and I wasn't preparing for a luxury experience for £67.50 per room. But Maureen's B&B was a really good surprise. The house is well located 15 minute-walk from the Royal Mile; parking is easy.We had a double room and a twin. The double room, in front of the house was absolutely huge. We felt like in a countryside grand hotel. The twin room however was rather small with shared bathroom. But Maureen explained that the room will have its own bathroom very soon. The house is full of traditional charm and you won't find this atmosphere in many places. The breakfast is not cooked but continental (fruits, cereals, toasts, croissants, cheese, ham) . No disappointment though as it was delicious, healthy and plentiful. The breakfast room is beautiful too. Maureen is a lovely host. Highly recommended place to stay whilst visiting the city.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Elderfields is situated in one of Edinburgh's residential areas and is a fine example of early Victorian architecture. The Elderfields Guest House was built around 1850 and is tucked away opposite the picturesque Queens Park and Holyrood Palace and close to the bottom of the Royal Mile. Princes Street is just a 15/20 minute walk away, with Edinburgh Castle dominating the local skyline. The Elderfields Guest House really couldn't be more convenient for visitors wanting to fully experience Edinburgh at its historic and vibrant best. ... more less
