Thank you, Margaret, for a wonderful week in Edinburgh! We could not have asked for better accommodations, plus the breakfasts were outstanding. You were so helpful to us, with tips on what to do and see, as well as making it possible for us to return for one more night prior to our departure. Both of your rooms are cozy and nicely appointed and your hospitality unparalleled! If you are ever in San Diego, we hope you’ll contact us! There is a Skyline 200 bus to & from the airport. Takes 30 minutes, stops around the corner no walking or a taxi which can take 10 minutes-15 minutes.

Il b&b è veramente bello e molto caratteristico, si tratta di una tipica villetta in perfetto stile scozzese, situata in un quartiere residenziale molto tranquillo.E’ collegato molto bene con il centro, il bus n.41 – che ferma proprio di fronte al b&b – impiega circa 10/15 minuti per arrivare in pieno centro. L’ospitalità è stata ottima (Margaret è veramente amabile..)la colazione è abbondante,la camera è pulita e confortevole.Siamo stati benissimo e lo consigliamo vivamente a chi ha intenzione di visitare Edimburgo.

This has to be the best B&B for visiting Edinburgh. Extended our stay 2 days for a total of 7. Margret knows her way around the city, area and country to help with any questions. Location is great with easy parking and a quick, simple bus ride to the city center. Breakfasts very good but she couldn’t get me to eat the haggis! Room was large and well appointed. Can’t recommend it more. If we are able to get back, this the only place we’d consider.

The b&b is really nice, it’s a typical Scottish style chalet, situated in a residential district. It’s very well connected with the center, bus n.41 – it stops right in front of the b&b – takes about 10/15 minutes to get to the city center. The hospitality was excellent (Margaret is really sweet ..) breakfast is plentiful, the room is clean and comfortable. We had a great time and highly recommend it to those who plan to visit Edinburgh.

From the USA, What a wonderful place to stay! The location is excellent: with just a short walk to bus stops you can be in the city center in 10 minutes or at Leith in 20 minutes. Margaret cooks and hosts a delightful breakfast, but also offers a mini-fridge, sink and a micro wave to do ones own cooking if preferred out of season. Quite a delightful arrangement, with a separate entrance shared by two ensuite apartments. The neighborhood is lovely and has a post office, restaurants, laundry, grocery and pharmacies within a 15-20 minute walk or 5 minute taxi-ride.

Margaret is very responsive to her guests, is a lovely hostess, and a wonderful person. She will make sure you are provided for and will give you space as needed. A plethora of information is available on tourist sites, maps, bus routes, etc as well as information on Scotland in her house. Truly a homey environment where one can tour or rest as needed. Thank you Margaret for taking such good care of me! Blessings!
