We recently stayed here for five nights. It's a lovely historical building, with lots of beautiful original wood accents and trims, but the modern elements that have been added, such as the clear acrylic Lobby desk, and light fixture above it that looks like a bunch of cotton balls affixed together, took away for the beauty and charm. I chose...

Visited as a surprise for my 60th birthday. When we arrived there was cake and a bottle of wine in our room! The room was compact but big enough with a comfortable bed and a nice bathroom. All areas of the hotel are well maintained and the wood panelling has been kept giving it a great Georgian feel. Breakfast was...

We stayed here for a long weekend in Edinburgh. A wonderful hotel located at just 5/10 minutes walking distance from the "West End" stop of the Airlink 100 bus. We stayed in room nr. 6, on 3rd floor, with stunning views of the Dean Village. Rooms are super clean and big. A mention to the staff is mandatory: Julio made...

We've stayed at the b+b property in London and thought we would give the b+b Edinburgh a try. We were not disappointed! It was a great stay. Location was perfect. Close enough to the royal Mile to walk but far enough away for a bit of peace and quiet.

Lovely hotel, room nicely furnished, with view of Edinburgh Castle. Quiet location, close to Haymarket Station (5 minutes walk). Good breakfast, plenty of choice - even for a vegetarian. Reception staff very helpful and welcoming - despite my arrival late in the evening.

My wife and I stayed at the B+B Edinburgh in August 2016 prior to taking a bus tour of the Scottish highlands. We would happily return to this B+B again if we return to Edinburgh. And we would certainly recommend to our friends.

The B&B Edinburgh is a fantastic little gem situated in a great location in Edinburgh. The B&B is charming, quaint, and staffed with kind, curteous, and helpful employees. All sites of the city are within walking distance from the B&B, and for those individuals who have difficulty getting around, public transportation is just down the street. I would definitiely stay...

I have stayed twice in this beautiful former grand home. Friendly helpful staff, beautiful library and bar for gathering with fellow guests. Excellent breakfasts and lovely views from rooms in back. 25 minute walk to central Edinburgh, and lovely neighborhood and paths right outside the B+B. Would stay again but not in room #015 -- too small!!!

Staying in Stockbridge & Dean Village

Neighbourhood Profile
Stockbridge & Dean Village
Just downhill of New Town and attractively straddling a river near the elegant Royal Botanic Garden, it’s small wonder that Stockbridge became one of the city’s first hip neighbourhoods. It’s now one of Edinburgh’s most desirable, though many bohemian touches have fallen away as its residents have matured and the area has gentrified. Some second-hand shops cling on, but mostly residents display refined tastes in basement bistros, gastropubs, coffee and antique shops, boutiques and delis and at the Sunday farmers' market. A pleasant ten-minute walk away, along a leafy riverside path beside the gurgling Water of Leith, lies Dean Village. This sleepy neighborhood of medieval half-timbered houses still retains much of the village feel it had when watermills plied their trade here. Beyond, the wooded riverside path feels even more remote as it climbs to the sculpture gardens of the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art.
