We visited here and stayed for 2 nights. The location is lovely, opposite a park and great bus links to Edinburgh city centre. The rooms are simple but clean. The owners are friendly too. There aren't any bath or shower products on offer so don't rely on having any. Parking is off road and a bit tight but we found...

Room was very-very clean, bed was really comfortable. Also I enjoyed my breakfast, they even asked me what I wanted for my breakfast and cooked it. Also it isn't a problem if...

This is a nice B & B in Leith, with a regular bus just outside the front door into central Edinburgh. It is also opposite the links park and has a lovely restaurant just up the street called Bijou.

This is a lovely little guest house, very clean and tidy and the owners, James and Dora were great hosts very friendly and welcoming. If your shoes are dirty, you are asked to leave your shoes downstairs, which is a great idea and makes it seem more homely. There are six rooms, four on the first floor and two on...

Crioch is a really nice B&B. Good location, although not exactly downton, bus next to the bus routes. One even goes strait to the airport. The house is victorian style and very cosy. I wanted a nice room to myself, being a solo traveler, and was warmly welcomed. The breakfasts were nice, plenty of fresh fruit. The rooms are well...

My family and I stayed for 3+1 days during July. James and Dora are very friendly and lovely people. They helped us a lot about everything. My Mom was very impressived about their warm welcome and felt like stay in pur own house. It's just a such wonderful B&B.
