We stayed two nights at the Ravensdown, on our trip to Edinburgh. Our flight from Toronto landed at 6:30am in the morning, but they helped us out by taking our luggage in, so we could explore the city for the morning, before a very early check-in at 1:00pm. The building is on a busy street, but it was not too loud at all.
The room was clean and nice, with a pretty view of the hill in the city in the distance. We were only about a 10-15 minute drive by car or bus into downtown, which was convenient, and parking was free. Their front dining room was very pretty and the full Scottish breakfast was perfect. Of all the B&B's we stayed in, in Scotland, they had the FINEST french coffee every morning. Delicious.
In the end, we left and went to other cities/areas of Scotland, and we forgot our camera's power supply in our room. They graciously(and promptly) shipped it back home to Toronto for us. What a wonderful couple. THANK YOU.
