This is such a good option if you are staying in Edinburgh - I cannot imagine staying anywhere else if places are available (which after all the positive reviews presumably will become harder to get). The rooms are excellent (very clean, comfortable bed, good shower), free (decent) internet and lovely breakfast. The owner (& other staff) goes out of her... More

We stayed at Two Hillside Cresent for one night on January 1st and had a wonderful time. Elaine was the most welcoming host , she has an amazing business here, although it doesn't feel right calling it a business, we felt as though we were staying at a friend's house. The house itself is perfect and beautiful in every way,... More

As soon as I walked into our Luxury room, I said "i want to live here". What a fabulous space, so comfortable and spacious. The shower is great and the bed is so comfy! Our host Elaine is super friendly and accommodating. Breakfast was delicious, I'll definitely find another excuse to come back here soon.

Two Hillside Crescent was a highlight of our trip. Wonderfully decorated, clean and update. Elaine and her staff could teach a master class on hotel management. Truly a beautiful boutique hotel that was close to everything in Edinburgh. Highly recommend that everyone stay here.

Two Hillside Crescent is a fantastic place to stay. Apart from Elaine, our hostess, who is great, the place itself is marvelous. The bedrooms and bathrooms were clean and well taken care of, and the beds, well, sleep will not be an issue. Getting up for breakfast was the hardest part because i never wanted to get up out of...

2 Hillside Crescent is an upmarket B & B just off London Road. The owner, Elaine, has restored the house very sympathetically and the result is very stylish. The bedrooms are large with high ceilings and full length windows. The front bedrooms have shutters as well as heavy curtains, which is necessary because London Road is quite noisy at times....

We just can't rate this place or our hostess highly enough. Booked in for a long weekend and despite our ridiculously early arrival we were met with the biggest of smiles and warmest of welcomes.

This B&B is such a perfect place to stay while in Edinburgh. The location is great and the place itself is amazing. Huge bedrooms and huge bed, which was very comfortable. The breakfast was soo tasty and yummy and Elaine went out of her way to make my stay there perfect. Would definitely stay again and highly recommend it.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Two Hillside Crescent is a beautifully restored Georgian Townhouse in the centre of Edinburgh offering luxury accommodation within a short walking distance of Princes Street and many city attractions. Its relaxed, welcoming atmosphere, convenient location and attention to detail make it ideal whether you’re stay is for business or leisure.We believe the two most important things about a Bed & Breakfast are indeed the Bed and the Breakfast. That is why all our beds are equipped with luxury linen, goose down duvets and Vi Spring mattresses to simply guarantee a great nights sleep (doubles are at least king sized and over 6’6” in length). Our delicious breakfast includes fresh seasonal fruit, homemade preserves and a choice of cooked breakfast all using responsibly sourced local, organic and free range produce. ... more   less
