We chose this guesthouse for the central location and free car parking space. It is only 15 mins walking to the city centre, but there are a lot of restaurants in the main street 1 min from this guesthouse. The rooms are ok for this price. A bit outdated, but clean.

I could say this wonderful facility is clean, quiet, and restful and leave it at that, but the hostess, Paola, is the essence of Scottish hospitality! After a great night's sleep, go down to the dining room and enjoy full English breakfast! Great value for the money and convenience to all points in the centre of Edinburgh.

We needed somewhere clean and welcoming for an overnight stay in Edinburgh; we researched and came up with the Abbotsford Guest House and we were not disappointed. It was exactly what it claimed to be! We arrived early - 10 o'clock - the timing was fortuitous as we found a parking space slap bang outside our room. We walked into...

Lovely b&b conveniently located. Paola the landlady couldn't be more helpful - being able to change the check in time to suit my schedule. A single room with shared bathroom wouldn't be right for everyone. But a cheap-ish room during the Edinburgh Fringe is like gold dust and this worked perfectly for me.

This B&B was fine for one night. Ask for a room at the back as the front room allocated to us was not good due to excessive road noise. It was too stuffy to close the window so broken sleep was the order of the night. Breakfast was adequate. Difficulty in finding a secure parking place.

We enjoyed our stay in Edinburgh very much . The Abbotsford house is beautifully kept and organized by it owner Paula. The breakfast that she offers is the typical Scottish breakfast, which was delicious. The only problem that I see for some passengers, is the stairs. There are 4 rooms on the second floor and 4 on the third. A...

Stayed here for 2 nights in July on recommendations as usual from trip advisor. Room No1 was well presented, clean and with everything you needed for the stay. The bed was really comfortable and being at the back was a quiet room. WiFi worked well throughout the guest house. Breakfast was adequate with full Scottish, cereals, fruit, yoghurt etc. Just...

I selected Abbotsford based on good reviews and am very pleased that it lived up to the expectations. The guesthouse has a very nice atmosphere and is very clean. I had a good sized room on the top floor with strong wi-fi and a tea kettle, which is a nice touch. The breakfast is excellent and plentiful, served in a...
