Netherby House
Ranked #108 of 394 Edinburgh B&B and Inns
Reviewed 12 December 2013

Stayed at this nice little B&B from 6 - 8 December 2012. The location was excellent as was the accommodation. I had Room No 3, at the back of the property, nice large room that would hold three people comfortably. Spotlessly clean and warm. Had everything that the traveller could expect.

Had the continental breakfast, the porridge is to die for.

George, the proprietor is very helpful and I would definitely stay there again.

Just a note - the cost of the taxi was £9.90, which I thought was a bit OTT for a short journey. Use the Airport express bus, No 100, its £3.50 and stops just above McDonalds, it is then only a short walk to the B&B.

Room Tip: I'd ask for Room 3 again. Its at the back of the property and nice and quiet.

Booked to stay before a trip abroad. We were given a room on the side of the house that was like a small apartment, very nice. The toilet was totally enclosed which did give it a musty smell but it was nice and clean. We had an early start so asked the owner for a continental breakfast which was given to us that evening.
The owner had phoned a taxi for us to get to the airport and we arranged to leave our car in the b and b carpark. The taxi cost £9 from the b and b. On our return we were asked to knock the door just to let the owner know we were back and taking the car.
Nice and easy to get to with a friendly and helpful owner, would book again. A lot cheaper than airport hotels.

Dear montysmum,
Thank you for leaving us a kind review, I am pleased to hear that you found our rooms "nice and clean" and handy for the airport, although I am sorry to hear that you found our en-suite had a slightly musty smell, there is an automatic expel-air fan and it is usually very satisfactory in extracting any condensation / aromas, however I will look into it.
I hope to see you again the next time you are passing through Edinburgh airport.
George

I was made very welcome and the accommodation was excellent. I could not fault this 'home from home' in any way and would recommend it to anyone. This place is ideal for those travelling from Edinburgh Airport, it is about 5 minutes drive from the airport. There is a big car park at the rear of the house and easy access to the main road. George makes you feel welcome and, in my opinion, feeling welcome is number one priority. Netherby is great value for money.

We started our short Scotland trip in Edinburgh and ended it there. It was no Problem to book the room accordingly in advance. Nice clean rooms and George is very thoughtful and friendly. A small parking lot for a rental car is also available. Even though it is directly at the main street, it is really quiet. As the bus is Close by, you can reach Edinburgh Centre within 15 mins ride and it's not longer in the other way to the Airport. There are also a few good Restaurants Close by. We would definitely stay there again on our next trip to Scotland.

Excellent location adjacent to Edinburgh Airport which added to an enjoyable holiday in Scotland.
Easy to access by bus from Edinburgh and host could not be more helpful.
Good facilities and I would have no hesitation staying again.

Perfect way to end such a great trip to Scotland! Stayed at Netherby for a few nights before flying back home, perfect location as it’s quite close to the airport and good bus service to city centre (15 minutes or so). Service was amazing for our whole stay with easy transport to the airport being a definite bonus and stress free way to end our holiday. Rooms were a good size, clean and great value for money compared to other places we had stayed at while over in the UK so we were very pleasantly surprised! Good choice of restaurants nearby, so we didn't have to spend all day in the city. Could definitely have stayed a few extra nights!

Room Tip: Fabio's Italian restaurant is just along the road and is really good for an evening meal.

We arrived a little later than we said, but that wasn't a problem at all. Both owners were very nice and friendly, showed and told us everything there was to know. After 10 days without WIFI it was great to be able to check our emails...
Our room was bigger than I expected and I literally slept like a stone.
The owner arranged a transfer by taxi to the airport for us on the next morning which cost about 10 pounds.
There was a great range of things for breakfast which I really liked!
Thanks a lot for the nice stay!
