This is the ultimate B&B for those who appreciate a place not only as it is, but as it has been in the past. For the literary-minded the mere fact of staying in Robert Louis Stevenson's house will be an enormous enticement to stay there....More
You feel that welcoming friendly atmosphere as soon as you walk in the front door. If you want to have that feeling of staying in a home away from home rather then just another hotel, this is the place. Breakfast is really appetising, you want...More

Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town, until after dark when strappy dresses come out to play. This is the city’s central business district with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric
squares, and self-important statues. But it’s also a very wanderable neighbourhood, with a healthy bustle at almost any time of day and fine people-watching in places like St Andrew's Square which fills with picnickers around lunch. You’ll also find a series of cheerful basement bistros on Hanover Street, while dark Rose Street has something of the feel of an undiscovered back alley and is chock-full of characterful pubs and small independent shops.
