Two Hillside has style in abundance and is immaculate throughout. Everything is done to a high standard, it well deserves it's glowing reputation. It's nice having the choice of breakfast between 7.30am and 10am to suit your day.

I've lost track of how many times we've stayed with Elaine and we are NEVER disappointed! Everything is perfect from the moment you arrive: stunning Georgian building, beautiful decor, everything immaculate, stylish and inviting! The bedrooms are generous as the Georgian rooms haven't been carved up, the bathrooms are all beautifully appointed, comfortable beds and pillows with crisp linen sheets,... More

We visited Edinburgh during the International Festival and final Tattoo weekend. Our stay at Two Hillside Crescent was wonderful. We had the lovely, very large room at the front of the house. Large enough for a love seat, coffee table, small writing desk, king size bed, and wardrobe with plenty of space to walk around. Bathroom was also spacious with... More

All we can say is that the stay was truly fantastic and Elaine and Anna could not have looked after us any better. 2HC is perfectly placed for exploring the City and only a short walk away from the centre, via Regent Gardens, which offer the most stunning 360° views around the City and out to sea.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Two Hillside Crescent is a beautifully restored Georgian Townhouse in the centre of Edinburgh offering luxury accommodation within a short walking distance of Princes Street and many city attractions. Its relaxed, welcoming atmosphere, convenient location and attention to detail make it ideal whether you’re stay is for business or leisure.We believe the two most important things about a Bed & Breakfast are indeed the Bed and the Breakfast. That is why all our beds are equipped with luxury linen, goose down duvets and Vi Spring mattresses to simply guarantee a great nights sleep (doubles are at least king sized and over 6’6” in length). Our delicious breakfast includes fresh seasonal fruit, homemade preserves and a choice of cooked breakfast all using responsibly sourced local, organic and free range produce. ... more   less
