Very welcoming and friendly hosts, from the minute we arrived, until the minute we left. They were incredibly knowledgable about the locality and couldn't do enough for us. The room was comfortable and very clean, breakfast was beautiful, very tasty and very filling. We'll definately be staying here again the next time we are in Edinburgh.

Great hospitality - very clean and very kind and knowledgeable employees. Very fun people! They directed us to great sites and tours! It is just a short walk to a fabulous busing system that is easy to figure out while touring Edinburgh. I would definitely stay again and hope I do one day!

Stayed here for three nights in early January with my girlfriend, and have to say that this is a brilliant B&B. The rooms are lovely (and never cold) with en suite, fridge, big TV and tea and coffee making facilities. The B&B is conveniently located in Leith near the city centre (a short bus ride away or 25 minutes walk),...

Without a doubt, Pillars House is one of the friendliest, warmest B&Bs I have ever had the pleasure to stay in. The rooms are clean with comfortable beds and en-suite bathrooms. Felipo is a wonderful host (and a great cook!) who is always kind, helpful and interested in chatting. My 4-night stay was most enjoyable and I would recommend Pillars...

For our trip, I requested sweets in the room as a surprise to my boyfriend. They had a large box of Ferrero Rocher chocolates and a bottle of Champaign waiting for us. Additionally, breakfast was made to...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Pillars house was originally built and owned by Crawford which were offices and a spirit store in the late 18th century. Most of the building still has a lot of its character left as you can see as you walk in through the main entrance. The courtyard where our free parking is situated was traditionally used as the delivery entrance where the horse and carts brought the whiskey from the highlands to be blended. ... more   less
