Tantallon Place Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #142 of 393 Edinburgh B&B and Inns
Reviewed 28 February 2012

We were delighted to get a booking! They're popular, so often full. So often, in fact,that I write this glowing reference with trepidation that it will get harder to find a space there!
We experienced, for the first time, the lovely large room at the front of Ann and Mike's house. What spacious accommodation with an huge bed! We so enjoyed the space, ambience created by Mike and Ann, the facilities--including a lovely big, modern en suite shower room--and had an excellent sleep in this tranquil part of Edinburgh but within walking distance of The Mound and Edinburgh's historical Old Town as well as some very good local restaurants, some of which appear in a booklet compiled by the hosts.
Delicious breakfast--mostly organic- finishing off with Mike's excellent home made marmalade.
We're already looking at our diaries to see when we can return!

Room Tip: Both rooms are delightful and have their own character. One is smaller and at the back of the house...

We stayed at this B & B for seven nights and enjoyed every moment. The location is great for those who like to walk - we loved strolling to and from the Royal Mile through The Meadows. There is a good selection of restaurants only 5 to 10 minutes away. The B and B is located in a blissfully quiet residential area full of sandstone heritage homes. You will sleep well here!
Mike and Ann try very hard to meet your needs. We asked for more reading lights in our room and were cheerfully accommodated. Coffee and tea fixings are in the room and fresh milk is supplied. It was quite cold during our visit and we appreciated the two radiators in our room and the cozy duvet - we were almost too warm on occasion!
Breakfast is enlivened by Mike's superb marmalade and occasional piano playing. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Tantallon Place for anyone looking for a quiet, comfortable place to stay in Edinburgh.

My husband and I spent two nights here in December 2011 as part of our honeymoon travels and the place exceeded our expectations - delightful!

We were picked up and dropped off from/to the train station, received with all the warmth and friendliness one could expect, our room was clean, big and spacious with a modern bathroom. The place was clean and fresh, we had tea-making facilities in our bedroom, fresh milk and shortbread biscuits, travel guides; hot water for shower, heating etc. Breakfast was truly amazing: full scottish breakfast, tea, fresh fruit, fresh milk and cereal, homemade jam.. I can't even remember it all! And on top of that, somebody played live piano for us from the adjacent room - what a perfect start to our honeymoon! Lovely couple, lovely hosts, lovely place - we will definitely stay here again! Thanks Ann and Mike!

We spend 3 weeks in Scotland and rent a room in 11 B & B. But no doubt : this was the best of all.
I stayed with me partner 2 nights in a hugh, very clean bedroom in june 2011.
Already before arriving, Mike mailed me the way to follow to the B&B.
Tantallon is very well situated, only 20 minutes walk trough the park to the Royal Mile and other points of intrest.
The welcoming is superb. Mike and Anne prepared amazing Scottish breakfasts with fresh fruit. The dressing of the dishes is wonderfull.
Mike and Ann have for every question an answer, for every problem a solution; these excellent hosts are very very helpfull.
Tantallon has a private car park ,extreme usefull in the center of town.
OUTSTANDING B&B and hosts.

When I first called to book our room I knew I would enjoy my stay as Mike was so lovely on the phone. From that good start our experience didn't falter. We were up for a wedding at the zoo so were bound to have fun, but Ann and Mike's hospitality really made it a special trip, from the extensive variety of breads and gorgeous homemade products at breakfast to the sheer warmth of their hospitality. A lovely, warm and happy house and one I hope to visit again. Just sorry it took me so long to get round to writing this!

We stayed at Tantallon Place in Edinburgh for 5 nights in September and could not have been more satisfied. Mike and Ann, our hosts, made us feel at home in their charming B & B located 10 to 15 minutes walk from the Royal Mile. The breakfasts offered great variety and Mike took great pride in his morning fruit presentation. Mind you, the fruit was just the beginning to a full Scottish breakfast. The room was spacious, clean, and comfortable. Searching the internet for a good B & B at a reasonable price takes time and it is not often that the choice one makes surpasses expectations. I would venture to say that 99% of those staying with Mike and Ann at Tantallon Place will say that they have made an excellent choice.

I hate writing a rave review ecause it means we will never be able to get back there, so it was rubbish. I hate having a superb, well appointed room, attentive hosts who cannot do enough for you but still give you your space, delicious comprehensive breakfasts that make you skip lunch and excellent access to the city and all the sights. The property is immaculately clean and we were serenaded at breakfast from the 'piano lounge'. Personally, it was a wonderful introduction to Edinburgh.

Room Tip: The front double room is large and bright, with a massive bed and floor to ceiling wondows. Didnt se...
