Can't praise this guesthouse highly enough. From the welcome to the departure everything was 100%. So much better than than an impersonal chain hotel. Warm genuine hosts. Angela is a natural hostess. I will definitely return on my next visit to Edinburgh.

We were there for one night. The guest house is close to the beach and few minutes away from the city centre by bus. The owner were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good and the room was nicely furnished and the breakfast hall also - decorated with fresh flowers. It is a good stay.

Abercorn House is a lovely B&B in Portobello, just outside of Edinburgh. Angela was very nice and extremely accommodating. The room was clean and comfortable. I only stayed here for one night but would recommend this guesthouse to anyone who wants to stay a little bit out of the city proper.
