    Located close enough to walk into town but on a quiet crescent with a lovely private garden at the front. Very representative of Edinburgh's New Town architecture you really feel like you are at home. I felt very welcome and enjoyed some great hospitality.

    Phenomenal host with top-notch hospitality - she makes The Victorian Town House! The place is gorgeous and perfectly located close to city-centre, but off on a quiet and peaceful street. Minutes away from Haymarket station.

    Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in
    industrial Britain had their most desirable
    neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes.
    Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest
    citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind
    grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel
