Gerald is the consummate host - charming, welcoming, witty. My room was comfortable and warm, the bathroom clean and well-equipped. Gerald's Place is centrally located and I walked everywhere from there. My stay here was wonderful and I would recommend it to anyone who puts a good bed, and a good breakfast, first when they are travelling.

Once we enter Gerald's Place, we have a feeling that we are being welcomed home. Everything is as we would wish it, with the bonus that all is managed with genuine personal concern and understanding.

Gerald's Place is extremely cosy, very clean and our room was extremely comfortable. Could not have picked a better location. It was very quiet yet very accessible to the city centre attractions and restaurants. Gerald is a very knowledgeable and a very welcoming host, a true gentleman.

Staying in New Town

Neighbourhood Profile
New Town
Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town, until after dark when strappy dresses come out to play. This is the city’s central business district with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric squares, and self-important statues. But it’s also a very wanderable neighbourhood, with a healthy bustle at almost any time of day and fine people-watching in places like St Andrew's Square which fills with picnickers around lunch. You’ll also find a series of cheerful basement bistros on Hanover Street, while dark Rose Street has something of the feel of an undiscovered back alley and is chock-full of characterful pubs and small independent shops.
