We were warmly welcomed back to this excellent B&B. It was lovely to be back in the same clean comfortable room overlooking the garden. Set back from the road it is very quiet. Keith has thought of everything from shoe cleaning equipment to an adapter plug for over seas visitors. I love the breakfast with so many choices of cereal, fruits and breads. We chose the cheaper option but Keith was always on hand to help. There's a good shopping area very near and frequent buses into the city. I highly recommend this B&B and would return again. Thank you Keith.

We have stayed in Alexander's rooms several times and it never disappoints. Keith is a friendly and relaxed host. The flat is very quiet and comfortable, with a delightful garden. There are many good restaurants close by, as well as lovely shops and a cinema. The perfect place to stay in Edinburgh.

Our host Keith could not have been more welcoming. Furnished stylishly but nonetheless welcoming and cosy, we had a fantastically comfortable bed to sink into, big comforty armchairs, beautiful lamps, and loads of room to unpack.The living room was equally stylish and inviting. With a big dining room table, plenty of room was available to eat in style and comfort. Not jostling for space here!
The living room looks out onto a wondefully secluded walled garden. The bathroom and toilet were spotlessly clean. The kitchen had everything you would need to prepare a mail and Keith supplied all you would need to make yourself coffee and tea.
The location itself is just a bonus. I would travel far from the city centre to feel so much at home but despite its feeling of peace and serenity, Morningside Road is but a minute away. From the busstop more or less at the end of Albert Terrace, you can wing your way to St Giles Cathedral on the Royal Mile, down to Prince's Street, directly to the beach at Portobello to name but a few of the destinations within easy grasp by bus.

Room Tip: We stayed in the master bedroom that looks out on the front - it was quiet but i'm fairly sure that goes for all of the rooms

We stayed with Keith for some days at the beginning and end of our Scotland holiday in August 2015. It is a lovely Victorian villa, very quiet and surrounded by a nice little garden, furnished and looked after with great care, taste and joy.

Although we arrived very late the first night (even later than announced) Keith welcomed us warmly and we felt we liked this place instantly. In the morning Keith served a wonderful breakfast with everything you could wish for, even a freshly made smoothie. What made it even nicer was that we had it in the living room of the host together with two other guests.

We felt completely comfortable and by then it already indicated what we felt very clearly when we came back a second time at the end of our holiday: It was like coming home to a friend's house - thank you, Keith!

Whenever we'll come back to Edinbourgh we'll definitely stay at Keith's.

Three of us have just stayed for two nights with Keith while we were visiting Edinburgh University. We had high hopes as Keith's reviews are excellent and we were not disappointed. Our bedroom was spacious and truly comfortable with all the extra touches that make one feel really at home - fresh fruit, lovely snacks,a kitchen to make drinks, as well as being able to sit in the beautiful sitting room.The generosity of spirit is what makes the difference. Our daughter also had a lovely room and we all really enjoyed Keith's company which is kind and solicitous without being at all intrusive.
We did not find sharing the bathroom any inconvenience as robes are provided, and chatting over a delicious breakfast was a treat.
Morningside is a delightful area, full of cafes and independent shops, and it is a lovely walk into town from there which was useful as we ate very well indeed!
