We stayed here for the first time, this weekend and received a very warm welcome from Cathy. Our room (No. 6) was at the top of the house, and at the back, so nice and quiet. Decor is quirky and beautiful; the room had a nice shower and comfy bed. As vegetarians, we are used to nimimal veggie breakfasts in non-veggie places, so breakfasts here were a delight - huge choice of lovely quality food. I had griddled halloumi, fried polenta, mushrooms and tomatoes, which was just divine. Fresh fruit was on the table and a vast array of different teas available. And as cat lovers, we were delighted to make friends with their resident black & white cat, Felix :-) I feel suree we will become regulars!

3rd time of staying here and the 3rd time i haven't been able to fault any of the stay.

Was allowed to check in early as was going to the rugby.

Cathy as always offered a warm welcome and escorted us to our room. Spacious twin room on the 2nd floor.
Very comfy bed with TV, tea and coffee making facilities and the option of having fresh milk for the room.
I am no vegetarian but very much enjoyed the breakfast.

Was allowed to keep our bag in the b and b until our train at 8pm which was a bonus.

Can recommend this place enough and will certainly be back.

Room Tip: Room 5. En suite top floor very comfy bed and very quiet

Another return visit to one of my favourite places to stay in Edinburgh.

Warm welcome as ever and very good vegan breakfast.

Location is close to work and the city centre, so ideal on all respects for work and evening in town.

Looking forward to my next visit.

My wife and I had a very enjoyable three night stay in this excellent vegetarian and vegan friendly guest house.

Cathy gave us a warm welcome and we appreciated her good nature, sense of humour, charm and easy going manner throughout our stay. The accommodation is a smart sandstone terrace house in a decent location, with an attractive flower and shrub filled front garden. Stepping through the front porch you end up treading on traditional tartan in the reception hallway, an inviting and pleasing introduction to the house, complete with a fireplace, pine panelling, tourist information leaflets, colourful art deco lamps, dried and fresh flower arrangements, beautiful prints, quirky ornaments, mirrors, a delightful doll and the man in the moon! Winding up the stairs, the theme is continued in the double bedroom, a bright and homely place, furnished in pine, two comfortable armchairs, tastefully accessorised with art nouveau prints and supplied with the usual tv, tea and coffee making facilities etc. The en suite was fine and the comfortable bed ensured we had good quality sleep.

Breakfast was a much anticipated highlight, offering a cornucopia of tastes and textures, from fruit juices, fresh fruit, fruit salad, breads, preserves, spreads, yoghurts, nut butters, cereals, dairy free milk, speciality teas and coffees etc. The cooked breakfast menu was designed to please. We raved about the traditional porridge and I experienced a taste of 'vegan nirvana' with a substantial and mouthwateringly hearty collection of mushrooms, baked beans, tomatoes, polenta and tattie scones! Our enjoyment was enhanced by the beautiful, colourful crockery, the wonderful decor and embellishments, the bright and sunny position beside the bay window and the relaxing, melodic background music.

Cathy's compassion, dedication, hospitality and commitment to providing a top notch veggie service, shines through and she has excelled in providing a lovingly crafted veggie retreat in the midst of yet another meat eating metropolis. This makes life easier for any vegetarian or vegan wishing to explore the sights and sounds of Edinburgh as we can be spared the tiresome rigmarole of trawling through the often second rate alternatives in future. Thanks to Cathy for her courage and conviction in sticking to her principles in a commercial sea of compromises and having faith in this venture, which I am sure we will all be enjoying for many more years to come.

My boyfriend and I spent 3 wonderful days in this B&B. The breakfast was amazing, the room was comfortable and Cathy was very helpful and welcoming. Even our late arrival (after 10 pm) was no problem. I would recommend this B&B to everyone!
