Lydie is such a warm host! Stayed in room 5 & 6 on the 1st floor. The rooms were beautiful and well furnished. Breakfast was delicious. Location is great with the old town just minutes drive away. Will definitely stay here again on our next visit to Edinburgh.

Stayed for 3 nights with my partner and could not have asked for a better service from Lydie and her team. The house is located near Morningside which is 10-15 minutes walk into Edinburgh. Morningside is full of little coffee shops and decent places to eat so you don't have to be confined to the Royal Mile! Albyn is a...

My husband and I stayed here for a few nights at the end of March. Lydie greeted us when we arrived and she is so sweet! The breakfast was by far the best breakfast we had while visiting the U.K. We would definitely stay here again- location is GREAT! Quiet with lots of good restaurants around.

Got in on a late Saturday afternoon and weren't expecting to see Lydia but low and behold she was there to meet us. The house is beautiful and very well kept. Fantastic homey touches and the owners made every accommodation with a smile and wonderful attitude. Our rooms (we traveled with another couple) were on the top floor and were...

Beautiful b&b near you he city centre of Edinburgh. The rooms are large and beautiful. The reception was splendid although we arrive outside the normal hours. A personal letter with tips and tricks, a city map,... Really a shame that we had to skip the breakfast it smelled very good. Thanks.

Stayed in one of the rooms on the top floor - bright, clean and cozy with a view over the school. Really welcoming staff and owner. The breakfast was abundant and tasty. The location of the property is not in the historical centre but still very convenient - 20 mins walk. For this price you really can't get much better....

We have thoroughly enjoyed our long weekend in Edinburgh and The Albyn was a large part of that it as a well managed and tastefully decorated guest house.

This gem of a guest house is tucked away in a cul-de-sac just off of bruntsfield place. Its easily reached from the centre with a short walk or buses. The area it's self is surrounded by lovey boutiques and independent shops ( much like Gloucester Road in Bristol) and fantastic restaurants. The breakfast was superb me or my wife couldn't...
