We arrived in Edinburgh to visit the Festival again on an extremely windy, rainy evening. We made our way to the Abercorn Guest House by taxi, tired and in need of comfort, which we got - in abundance! Our hostess was charming and welcoming, and our room was lovely. Extremely comfortable bed, very high ceiling giving the room a light...

The Accomodation is just 2 minutes walk from the beach, 5 minutes by car from City Centre of Edinburgh. It's a big house with a nice garden. The room is large and the bathroom is good. The breakfast is good too. The owner is a lady very nice and friendly and it's a pleasure to speak with her.

We had Room 8 on the ground floor, which looks out to the car park. The en-suite room is good sized. The accomodation is very clean and well appointed. We were welcomed by Angela who provided tea and biscuits. Breakfast was very nice. Parking is in the street, but there are many available spaces.
