Thistle Dhu is a nice and good Bed&Breakfast, located in a villasuburb, 20 minutes from Edinburgh city centre. Our room was quite lovley, very large with comfortable beds, a big walk-in-closet, armchairs and a fresh bathroom. It was overall very well furnised with new furniture. However it would have been nice if it have been more old style furniture. But...

I spent two thoroughly enjoyable nights at the Thistle Dhu, the room was beautiful, very comfortable and spotless. The very warm reception from Margaret and John was carried on for my entire stay, fantastic hosts and a lovely breakfast, will definitely return. Gem of a B&B with great transport links to both airport and city centre.

We arrived for a three night stay in early October. John and Margaret were very welcoming and showed us to a very comfortable upstairs room. There was in room tea and coffee available to make and relax with after a day of sight-seeing. This room also had a television if one cared to catch up on the news or shows....

We stayed here for one night before an early start at the airport. Thistle Dhu is just minutes from both the airport and city bypass. We didn't go into the city, but there seems to be an excellent bus service from just outside. There is a huge assortment of restaurants and takeaways all within walking distance. The room we stayed...

Had to find a B&B at the last minute due to an early morning flight. Came across this gem and couldn't have been more pleased. John and Margaret were very welcoming and friendly. They booked me a taxi for an early morning lift to the airport, provided extra coffee and cups for my friends who dropped me off. The room...

Lovely B&B between airport and city center of Edinburgh. Even though the B&B sits on a busy road, we heard no noise and were grateful that travel to and from the airport and the city was so easily managed. The B&B was clean and comfortable; the breakfast was first rate; and our hosts were delightful. I would stay here again...
