Loved my 3 nights stay at the Gifford house from the moment you walk in you feel very welcomed by Margaret and David . The room was very clean and comfortable with a clean bathroom. Waking up early to a lovely Scottish breakfast .. Will definitely be back to stay at the Gifford house and would definitely recommend staying here. Thanks again David and Margaret

This beautiful family run accommodation is now our first choice when visiting Edinburgh.
The huge well decorated comfortable rooms with en suite facilities are relaxing after a city walkabout in Edinburgh fringe week.
Margaret and David are very friendly and are always willing to help you where they can, and always welcome you to Gifford house with a smile.
The breakfasts are outstanding and sets you up for the day. The quality of the overall accommodation compared to the cost makes staying at Gifford house a bargain compared to other places in Edinburgh.
Top class service and outstanding accommodation. More than just a B&B.

Gifford House is convenient to Holyrood Park with a view of Arthur's Seat out the back windows, and there are several good restaurants a few blocks away. Breakfasts have several good choices and there is always fresh fruit too. Our hosts made us feel very welcome and provided very good advice. We took taxis and Uber to get to the major sites around the city but nothing is more than a half hour walk away. Rooms are cozy and warm.

During our trip to Scotland this year we again went to Edinburgh and it was just natural that we should stay at Gifford House again.
And it surely was no disappointment! As expected we enjoyed the Gifford family's warmth and hospitality.
We actually can't say more than we have not already done in our previous review, except that this is definitely a great place to stay in Edinburgh.
Great location, very nice and kind hosts, great breakfast. What more can you expect.

Stayed here over weekend from Friday 22nd July until Sun 24th July. Room was ready as we arrived at 1pm. Welcomed and shown to the rooms which were lovely and spacious. Beautiful old building with character.
Hosts were fantastic. They booked taxis for us and recommended The Dome, a must on George Street. Lovely building and atmosphere with decent priced drinks for such a lovely place.
Lovely breakfast fresh cooked and served with a smile.
Thank you. We really enjoyed our stay.
