The property's website and Rick Steves' recommendation easily convinced our travel party of four that the Glenalmond House should be our Edinburgh headquarters for five nights. Upon meeting our hosts, Fiona and Jimmy, we knew we had made the right the decision. We were welcomed at 11 AM from the airport and were surprised to find that our rooms were ready, something we greatly appreciated, but hardly expected. The website contained explicit directions to the B&B from the airport, and we were delighted to find that our hosts welcomed guests early and would store baggage until rooms could be cleaned, thus allowing travelers to begin their exploration of the city. The city bus was our main mode of transportation to the city, and Fiona provided us with information and maps to enable us to travel freely in the city. Breakfasts were huge and expertly prepared; we would highly recommend Jimmy's omelet. The rooms compared favorably with others in size on our trip and were always clean. On the morning we were to depart Edinburgh, Jimmy was kind enough to call a cab, which was cheaper than the one we took from the airport. Should we ever return to Edinburgh, we would not hesitate to book rooms at the Glenalmond House.
