Thank you Alan. I'm very pleased you and your companions were so happy with us but you hardly require any looking after at all, so my job was quite easy.

McCrae’s was an absolute delight. John takes great care in every element of his job, which is all the more commendable given he runs the place practically alone. The location is great, our room was pretty ideal and breakfast was delicious. We ordered the cooked...More

Great location about 15 minutes walk to the center of the city. Clean, friendly and an excellent breakfast is served. There are plenty of good places to eat and reasonable prices all around the B&B. Expect cool weather and always a chance of rain but...More

Thanks so much for the great review Kathie. I hope the pint of guinness I recommended in Dublin was as good as I said it would be. John

We were the second time in this b&b. We loved it again very much. The accommodation is situated in a very nice, quiet district of Edinburgh near to several nice restaurants and pubs. The old town is a little far away, but there are buses...More

Hi. The tram, to its last stop at York place, drops you to within an easy 10 minute walk downhill to the b&b. It takes about 45 mins. Alternatively, the airport express bus gets you to the city centre faster but leaves you... More
