Our new favourite B&B: that's how my wife and I would describe our latest discovery! Twenty London Street is an elegant townhouse property in Edinburgh's gracious Georgian New Town which the owner operates as a B&B. It's very discreet - no signage, apart from her name on the door. But it's very conveniently located for the city's wealth of historic sites, galleries, and other visitor attraction - and just two minitures stroll from Harvey Nichols!
The house is furnished with fine antiques, paintings and prints, and our bedroom (the stylishly decorated Garden Room) was very much to our liking: a wonderfully comfortable bed, made up with Egyptian cotton sheets, plus a lovely bathroom stocked with a plethora of fluffy towels. The breakfast, however, exceeded all expectation . . . a feast of fresh fruit, muesli, yoghurt and freshly squeezed fruit juices - then a marvellous plateful of scarmbled eggs with bacon, tomatoes, and field mushrooms. Delicious!
We were tempted to keep Twenty London Street our own special secret. But that wouldn't be fair. We would say it's among the very best B&Bs we've ever come across, and the location is unbeatable. Better still, the total bill for our two-night stay was only £190. We will most certainly be back!
