From the moment you walk in and are greeted by Heather you feel right at home. The rooms are large, immaculate, quiet, welcoming and the bed is very comfy. We were given coffee, water and shortbread as soon as we arrived along with an opportunity to ask questions about Edinburgh and the surrounding area. We were provided with maps, directions...

The Hedges Guest House is located on a quiet frontage road next to a main road. The entrance is a charming gated courtyard at 19 Hillside Crescent in the middle of private residences.

Just stayed here for a weekend with my partner and we were absolutely shocked. It was one of the best places we have ever stayed at. The room was beautiful and had everything you could ever need.

We stayed at the Hedges for a week. Heather, the owner, welcomed us and helped us in many ways to find special places to go, and even provided my husband with a hot toddy when he came down with a chest cold. Our room was spacious, beautifully decorated and so comfortable. We looked forward to "coming home" each night. Every...

Even though The Hedges is a 4 star B&B, it should qualify for 5 stars. Heather, the proprietor, is wonderful and anticipates all needs. We arrived late in the evening and she welcomed us with a snack. Our room was beautifully decorated, well appointed and very quiet. It was very clean and the bathroom very up to date. The location...
