Reviewed 28 July 2014

This is a lovely place to stay, clean comfortable rooms, friendly hosts and lovely breakfasts. It is very convenient with a bus stop just outside or you can take the picturesque walk into the city. There are also a variety of restaurants and a pub which does very good food close by. The hosts could not have been more helpful; in fact I cant think of anything negative to say about it; a perfect place to spend a few nights whilst visiting the sights of Edinburgh.

Tom and Hamish were very helpful and friendly for our first 2 nights in Edinburgh. The Gladstone house is in a quiet neighborhood within walking distance to the Royal Mile (Tom and Hamish will give you 3 walking routes into town, the long way through the Meadows is a great way to see some parts of the city, but was also a bit "dodgy" at times)
The room was clean and overlooked a beautiful garden. The food was fantastic!

We stayed at Gladstone House on the last bank holiday weekend of May. The owners, Hamish and Tom, were very friendly and accommodating proving lots of local information. The b&b is in a great location and walkable to all of the main city centre attractions. Would definitely recommend.

By far one of the best bed and breakfasts we have stayed in (as frequent international travellers, this says a lot). The accommodation was superb (spacious and well appointed) as was the breakfast (home cooking at its best). The hosts, Hamish and Tom were more than friendly and attentive showing a passion for their bed and breakfast lodging. The location is about 15 minute walk to the centre of town and 20 minutes to Holyrood providing an easy and scenic walk. Advice for tourist activity was given in abundance. Loved the place and highly recommended.

The decor in our room was very good and we felt very much at home.

The range of food available for breakfast was enough for anyones needs and of course was more than tasty.

We would be pleased to return to this friendly B&B where nothing was to much trouble.

We stayed here from 21st Nov for 3 nights, it was our 1st time in Scotland and we had a very enjoyable stay in a beautiful city. We would highly recommend Gladstone House, lovely large room and a nice hot breakfast and Tom & Hamish were very welcoming and helpful.

Very close to the Royal Commonwealth Pool on the Dalkeith Road. Edinburgh Old Town / Royal Mile about a 15 - 20 minute walk away, but very regular buses nearby that take you there in a few minutes. The Royal Park and Arthur's Seat a 5 minute walk. Had 4 nights here - no complaints at all. Rooms clean and comfortable, nice variety of breakfasts. 3 off street parking spaces at the front of the property bit of a tight fit but managed to squeeze in. Hosts very friendly and hospitable.
