I had seen good reviews of Abcorn Guest House on Trip Advisor and thought it would fit the bill for a reasonably priced overnight stay on our way north, and to be able to have a look at Edinburgh. It was easy to park, and although we arrived three hours before the booking in time of 3 o'clock, they were...

Stayed two nights here as weed needed two beds. The owners did a great job of making us feel welcomed and were very helpful. The breakfast was very good and I had no problem sleeping on their bed. After a few days there recovering from jet lag we were ready to explore Scotland.

My mom and I stayed two days at the Abcorn Guest House, loved every minute of it. Grand house with early 19th century charm and character. The hosts are just as charming, very accomodating,quick to offer information about the city. There's a bus stop right outside their door to take you directly into the city for cheap cheap. The breakfast...

We always stay at the Abcorn when we visit Edinburgh. Now that it has changed hands, we are STILL pleased with excellent location and service. Tony and his friendly smile is so welcoming. Anything you need and he is on it! The Abcorn is a brisk 20 minute walk from Princes Street or you can take a bus from the...

They helped us print boarding passes, call a taxi to the airport and even packed us sandwiches and snacks for our last morning, because we...

I stayed at this B&B in a double room which was very comfortable and clean. There are tea and coffee facilities, a TV and en suite. I thought this was good value for money. However, we were told on arrival that breakfast was only served between 8-9am. As I was staying on a weekend and had been working all week...

We stayed here for two nights en route to The Applecross Peninsula. Abcorn House is a little way out of the city but a pleasant and easy walk to the centre. Buses stop outside the front door and are frequent. The house is somewhat dated but our room was comfortable and perfectly acceptable. Our host was friendly and welcoming. It...
