My family had a very nice stay. The food, tissue and towels are all organic. The location is very quiet, No.8 bus stop is nearby, which can take you to the city center. Above all, the host, John is always ready to help you. Nothing to complain.

I spend a night at McCraes' B&B on the 3rd of October. I have only the best of things to write about it. I was given a fantastic room, spacious, ultra clean, very tastefull, with new furniture and fully equiped. The bathroom was also very spacious everything was brand new! The bed had a very comfortable mattress and was very comfortable. I had the chance to meet John, who was extremely helpful, polite and very organized!!! I had an excellent scotish breakfast the next morning, freshly cooked and delicious for five pounds which I think it was a very good price. Also the whole place is very quiet with respectful customers. I have no hesitation in recommending this excellent bed and breakfast to anybody visiting Edinborough. I must also add that it is very close to the center of the city, only some minutes walk and there are plenty of very tatseful places around it for a nice lunch or dinner. Great place!

Thank you for your wonderful review Evangelous. It was a pleasure to meet you and I'm glad you enjoyed your stay so much. Thanks for the tip about the Greek Islands. I hope to make use of it before too long.

The location is very very quite and clean. The Scottish full breakfast was excellent, highly recommended!!! John was excellent home owner and he helped us with every necessity we had, from the maps to the milk for our children.

Probably the best B&B I've ever had stayed in. The room was gorgeous with a fantastic en suite bathroom. Everything was impeccable. Excellent quality in all the products, the vegetarian breakfast was amazing. John, the owner, was always happy to give advice regarding sightseeing or any other requirement. Besides, the location is very convenient, within walking distance of the city centre. I’d love to return to Edinburgh and I’ll definitely choose McCraes’s again!

Really pleased we chose McCrae's - the location, accommodation and breakfast were all just perfect! Some sage recommendations from John about where to visit and eat. We would definitely return to McCrae's.

We stayed 3 nights in a twin room. The room was very quiet, spacious and sparkling clean. The beds were super comfy. John was very helpful with suggestions and information about sites and places to eat. It was an easy walk to Old Town and the castle. The breakfast was really yummy with some nice choices beyond the Full Scottish. I would absolutely stay at McCrae's again.
