“Nice and getting better”
Reviewed 21 March 2006

This hotel is under new ownership and undergoing major rennovation of public spaces. We had to walk past come scaffolds to get to our room, but did get a discounted rate. The room we had was spacious, clean, and airy. Full breakfast was very good, but not exceptional. The location is great. Quiet pleasant neighborhood, but still walking distance to most Edinburgh sites of interest. I would stay here again.

Ray and Cristy will look after you at this B&B. The room was spacious and clean, internet booking was perfect and the owners were friendly and helpful.

Good location, non-smoking, clean, good value - we would recommend for anyone to stay here.

The Afton Town House Hotel is a grand old house on a quiet leafy crescent, yet only 5 minutes walk to Haymarket Station with trains every 6 minutes to Waverly. Or it's an easy walk - 10 minutes to Prince's Street, and 25 to the Castle. The hotel is friendly, and family-owned. There is a large first-floor (UK definition) dining room where the included full breakfast is served, looking out on the crescent gardens. (No other meals, but there are many restaurants and pubs about 3 quiet, upscale blocks away.) My room (booked as a single) was huge and had a twin and a double bed (excellent quality). Full bath, TV, phone, coffee & tea tray. Would stay there again anytime.
