“Fantastic accomodation and wonderful hosts”
Reviewed 16 February 2012

Fiona and Jimmy have a fantastic B&B about a 20minute walk from the centre of Edinburgh. We had some personal issues which meant we had to cancel our original booking in November but Jimmy and Fiona were incredibly accommodating and moved our booking to February with no hassle especially as we had booked a "non-refunable" deal. We were in room 7, one of the four poster doubles and the room was immaculate and extrememly comfortable with tea and coffee making facilities and also a fridge and giant tv! The breakfast was brilliant with a huge selection to choose from and as our last night there was on the 13 February we came back to our room to find a rosr and some choloates - a lovely touch for Valentines day. Would highly recommend anyone visiting Edinburgh to stay at Glenalmond House.

We spent a little pre Christmas holiday at the Glenalmond House and all I can say is what a wonderful time we had! Jimmy and Fiona were such wonderful hosts, helping us with traversing all the winter wonders of Edinburgh. The bus lines run right next to house, and it's a very safe neighborhood for anyone out a little late. There was also ample parking for our rental car. A beautiful room with all the amenities, and a wonderful breakfast each morning made our trip perfect!

Room Tip: The main road is a main thoroughfare. If cars at night bother you, you might be better with a room i...

And Jimmy & Fiona were grand hosts! Breakfasts to die for-- lots of assistance helping us plan the day's/week's activities and flexibility about our pre-booked room when we took off for 2 nights mid--week. VERY nice safe neighbourhood and the bus line runs right in front, so that was convenient too. Also glad they had a laptop for guest's use so I could check my email.

just returned from 3 night stay at the glenalmond, pleasant stay, had superior 4 poster room which was on the ground floor, full of original fittings and so clean.
modern bathroom though slightly cramped, breakfast well cooked and varied menu set you up for the day.
on a bus route with frequent buses into the city and plenty of eating places nearby.
last of all a friendly welcome when we arrived, all in all a lovely place to stay.

Room Tip: ground floor rooms if you are less mobile.

My partner and I stayed at Glenalmond House for two nights in September 2011. It was a great place to stay and was only a mile away from the Royal mile shopping areas and tourist areas of Edinburgh. The local bus was easy to use and picked you up and dropped you off almost in front of Glenalmond House at 25 Mayfield Gardens. Fiona and Jimmy were excellent hosts and made you feel comfortable and would provide you with great breakfasts and wounderful accomodations in their lovely 10 bedroom B and B. The bedroom was clean, beautifully decorated, had a comfortable bed and a relatively new renovated bathroom. I would highly recommend this B&B to anyone visiting Edinburgh as the location and accomodation is fantastic. Thanks Fiona and Jimmy!
