Hi Ella, Thank you for a great review. I am so glad that the directions to Gullane got you there quickly. We are not actually in Portobello but near it. Just a small correction. We are in Edinburgh. I am happy that you both found the place spotless and our cleaner has got 30 years experience in hospitality. I know...

Thank you so much for a great review. I am so glad that you enjoyed the breakfast. It is "tailor" made to suit each individual and on arrival we like to get an idea of what people want eg. allergies, vegan, full scottish..etc....if we do not have an ingredient we would go out and buy it (within reason). This only...

Very welcoming B&B. Brian helpful and friendly. Loved the Victorian house especially the wooden floors - everything spotless and cleaned each day. Breakfast lovely. I am not used to eating breakfast but thoroughly enjoyed it. Vegetarian catered for - no problem. Bus stop directly outside and only a short journey into Edinburgh central. Great value. Would recommend and would visit...

Thank you for the great review. Yes, we love the stripped floors and as they are washed every day it keeps everything free from dust mites. Far more hygienic than carpets. You were in room 3 which was at the front of the house (the room were somebody posted a bus going by for some strange reason). I am glad...

From the moment my family of 4 arrived, we were warmly greeted and treated like family. Rooms and house were very clean and breakfast was custom made to order. My wife is vegan and Brian the owner fully accommodated her diet needs. There is a bus stop right out front that takes you into town every 10 minutes for £8.50...

Thank you for your great review. Brian has always been great with children and is a real family man. As we do not get many children here (they all go to the travel lodges) it was a pleasure for him to "entertain" them. He is a child at heart. Room 2 with the bunk beds is a grand room and...

Hi Archie, Thank you so much for the great review. I am so glad that you both had a comfortable stay and it was good to receive some Welsh folk. We never have Welsh people staying except at the rugby. Love the accent! Anne.

Before we booked our honeymoon trip to Scotland, my husband and I combed through dozens of hotel and B&B websites. We wanted to choose a space that was close to public transit, particularly tidy, and cost-effective. I also wanted to book with a space that had a local feel to it, which is ultimately why we dismissed the run-of-the-mill hotel...

The pros: 1. Great Internet connectivity. The cons: 1. Small rooms 2. Detached bathroom and toilets!! 3. You need to guess how to get into the property as there is no reception whatsoever... 4. They state of 6 parking lots for 6 rooms but nothing was reserved for us... Conclusion: don't bother, the low price is not even a factor.

It is amazing how you can state that the rooms are small since you only ever saw one and this was the one that you stayed in - room 4. This room has a separate toilet from the room and you knew this when you booked it. It even has a picture of the room and bathroom on our web-site...

We stayed at the Aynetree Guest House as part of our visit to the Military Tattoo in Edinburgh. Accommodation prices generally rise for the Festival, and this Guest House seemed good value for money when we chose it. The room was rather small, though, and the electric jug had to be stood on the floor in order to have enough...

I only had an overnight stay but it was thoroughly worthwhile. My room was clean and warm on arrival, the hosts Brian and Anne were very welcoming and friendly and communicated well over email. The breakfast was fantastic with lots on offer from continental to a full hot Scottish breakfast. If I'm ever back I will definitely stay here again!...

Wanted to come up to Edinburgh for a few days with my girlfriend. Trawled the internet looking for recommendations and found plenty of hit-and-miss central hotels which were both very expensive and had a lot of mixed reviews, not something I wanted to gamble on and risk disappointing the lady and blowing my money.
