Can highly recommend this guest house for a stay in edinburgh..The owners are v friendly and nothing is too much trouble. Modern appearance in a traditional Edinburgh house with lovely features .Close to buses but still not too far to walk to the centre.

Our two nights in Edinburgh were made especially special thanks to the warm hospitality at the MW Townhouse. Located on a quiet side street, the city center is minutes away by foot yet a visitor can easily find relaxation in this calm atmosphere after a full day.
The furnishings are simple, elegant, and the room was spotless.
The only noise that was slightly bothersome was somebody with a bad cough in a nearby room.
As we had a very early departure, breakfast was placed on the floor outside our room as promised.
Finally, I must add that two lovely women, May and Kate (I believe?) were so helpful with directions, ideas for eating, bus information, and could even provide us with a French convertor plug. All of the above with warm smiles!

I have recently returned from a weekend break in Edinburgh on 13th April. Having had some difficulty finding a hotel I found through an internet search the MW Townhouse, Edinburgh. What a lovely surprise when we arrived. This B&B is very modern and decorated in a contemporary style. Our room was a twin room with ensuite bathroom and again this was decorated in a contemporary, modern style. The room was a reasonable size with comfortable beds and included a TV, tea and coffee making facilities and a hair dryer.The bathroom was very clean and included a toliet, sink and walk in shower. The breakfast room was very pleasant and again quite spacious with a breakfast to die for!. They had a selection of cereals, fruit juice, full cooked breakfast, pastries and tea and coffee and this was all served by very friendly staff. The MW Townhouse was situated approximately 15mins away by bus from the centre of Edinburgh or approximately 25mins walk. This is a very pleasant guesthouse which I would definately stay at again.

  • Liked — The great breakfast and room comfort

Just returned from our first visit to Edinburgh - what a beautiful City. The MW Townhouse is a good quality B&B located close to the centre of of Edinburgh and on a regular bus route. House has many original features and our room was a very good size (there were three of us - two adults and a child age 8) with modern, clean facilities, satellite TV and an en-suite. Internet access is available free of charge. Breakfast was excellent with a choice of full cooked or continental options. Service was excellent and although the cost was a little on the high side (comparable with some hotels), it was value for money. We enjoyed our stay and would return again in the future.

We liked our stay very much. May and Katie were very helpful and friendly. The room was small but very clean, the bed comfortable, the bathroom spacious and in good working order, the decor elegant--no complaints. We were disappointed the phone system was not working for our 6 days there. I was not impressed with the food in Scotland, in general, so I think MW Townhouse did a very good job, considering. When I first looked at accomodations in Edinburgh, I overlooked that B&B's prices are per person rather than per room, so they looked like a much better deal than hotels (for 2 people). If I were to go again I'd look again at hotels since I imagine amenities like telephone would be more reliable.

This was my second stay with MW.

Its in a good location. 10 mins from Princess Street on the bus and 5 in a taxi. However, if you're on a tight budget go for the bus, which is a pound or about 2.50 for a day pass. Taxi into Edinburgh worked out between 6 and 7 pounds on average.

Rooms are big and very clean. Plenty of cupboard space to hang your clothes. Both rooms I've stayed in were ensuite. I think all rooms in
the hotel are. Only negative I have about the room was that the toilet was loose and moved around when you sat down on it!

The staff are very pleasant and helpful. At breakfast they were always there to attend to your needs, held friendly conversation with you and checked how your stay in the hotel and city was going. Also on arrival they give me a map to the city and listed the buses I could get into the centre from outside the hotel.

Overall, I'd say this was a great place to stay and would recommend it to anyone looking for a short stay in Edinburgh.

Have just returned from a fabulous weekend in Edinburgh. A large group of us stayed at the MW Townhouse and found it to be an excellent find. The majority of the rooms were large and all were extremely clean and nicely decorated
The staff were excellent, all very friendly and accomodating. It was also a nice touch that the owner ensured that she talked to all of her guests at breakfast and seemed genuinly interested in how you were enjoying your stay.
The townhouse is fairly close to Edinburgh centre. It is about a 20 minutes walk to the Royal mile and about six pounds in a cab.
Overall a very good b&b with very nice staff.
