Tom and Hamish were very helpful and friendly for our first 2 nights in Edinburgh. The Gladstone house is in a quiet neighborhood within walking distance to the Royal Mile (Tom and Hamish will give you 3 walking routes into town, the long way through the Meadows is a great way to see some parts of the city, but was...

We stayed at Gladstone House on the last bank holiday weekend of May. The owners, Hamish and Tom, were very friendly and accommodating proving lots of local information. The b&b is in a great location and walkable to all of the main city centre attractions. Would definitely recommend.

By far one of the best bed and breakfasts we have stayed in (as frequent international travellers, this says a lot). The accommodation was superb (spacious and well appointed) as was the breakfast (home cooking at its best). The hosts, Hamish and Tom were more than friendly and attentive showing a passion for their bed and breakfast lodging. The location... More

The decor in our room was very good and we felt very much at home. The range of food available for breakfast was enough for anyones needs and of course was more than tasty. We would be pleased to return to this friendly B&B where nothing was to much trouble.

This was by far the best experience I have ever had traveling. The room was very large and comfortable. I loved the sunken bathroom. The view was lovely. The food was out of this world. Tom and Hamish are gracious, kind, and extremely helpful host. I highly recommend beautiful Gladstone House.
