The space

Very central, friendly Franco/Scottish family B&B. Double Room with shared bathroom. On separate floor of the house from your host so nice and private. Only bookings for 2 people are accepted.

There are steep stairs and a very cuddly cat so this house is not suitable for the disabled or elderly or those with cat allergies. Linen, towels, hair-dryer provided. Wifi, TV in each room. Very close to city centre, Royal Hospital for Sick Children, University, theatres, cinemas and restaurants, yet in a nice quiet street. Buffet breakfast up to 10.30am with home-pressed smoothies, fresh fruit salad, cerials, yoghurts, cheese and oatcakes, fresh breads/toasts, various teas and infustions, coffee, hot chocolate etc.

No. 41 bus goes by house, but only 12 minutes walk to Royal Mile so most people walk. French, Spanish, Gaelic spoken (as well as English!). Alison and Christian will make you most welcome.

Alison was a wonderful hostess. She was extremely helpful in making our stay comfortable and helping with our travel and sightseeing plans. Public transportaton is only a block away - very nice. We would recommend Alison very highly - you will enjoy your time in her home.

It is so quiet and peaceful, but with local shops around and only a 10 minute walk into the city centre, a walk across a lovely park which is a pleasure to be in. It is well lit up and very busy at a…

Getting around

Yes, the no.41 bus is 50 yards from our house and runs every 15 minutes into the centre - though often walking is quicker!
