After 6 hours on the plane, and a subsequent mix-up and 1 hr delay at the car rental, my husband, 3 children and I were exhausted and ready to settle into a restful, relaxing B&B. Unfortunately, there was another mix-up to be had at the B&B we had reserved. The owner, however, referred us to her friend Ursula at the Ardgarth. We are so happy that she did!!! We were given 2 adjoining ensuite rooms (we had the top floor to ourselves), and were tremendously pleased with our accomodations. Clean, comfortable beds, and the rooms airy and light. The full Scottish breakfasts were delicious (though the children preferred the chocolate croissants!), and Ursula was so friendly and helpful with her suggestions for our stay in Edinburgh. She had a vast knowledge of family-friendly travel tips, and (understanding how challenging it can be to feed young children on holiday) allowed us to eat our take-away food for dinner in the breakfast room. We loved the location - minutes walk to the water and bus stop, and with convenience shops and reasonably priced food nearby. A wonderful experience all around, and I would recommend the Ardgarth wholeheartedly - especially those with children. An EXCELLENT way to enjoy Edinburgh!!
