Penny Airey- No.38 Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #261 of 396 Edinburgh B&B and Inns
Reviewed 31 October 2013

A great B & B in aposition just 10 mins walk from Princess street. The place is clean and tidy, the room huge and the breakfast lovely, with super hosts. Edinburgh is fantastic and this place certainly helps the enjoyment of the city. Just one thing, can we have a sign to say its a B & B - I understand its a conservation area but a brass plaque will do ! Hard to see when you arrive in the rain and it doesnt look like your digs !

The castle is about a 20 min walk away but buses are a plenty !

Tea and coffee in the room and plenty of choice at breakfast. - Hard to beat !!!

Room Tip: Nothing to add - its a great B & B

I chose this B&B based on the amazing reviews here on Tripadvisor. When in Edinburgh, I was both pleased and a bit disappointed with my choice.
First of all: If you know that you will spend a lot of time around the Royal Mile, Old town or the Palace, you should not stay at this B&B. Because that is the only downside with this place: the location. On the map everything looks close, but it is not. All the hills in this town makes it a 20 minute walk to the Palace or the Royal Mile. Since we went there everyday we very really exausted when we arrived at our rooms in the evenings. So if I return to Edinburgh I will try to find a hotel closer to the Old town.

But this B&B is in itself worh a visit. Our room vas very spacios, comfortable and queit. It really felt like a home away from home. Our host, Penny, was nice and the homemade breakfast was good. So if you want to stay in the New Town this is really the place. I have never had such a good nights sleep in a B&B/hotel before and that is the truth!

Room Tip: We had booked a twin room and got what I think is a family room, but only payed for a twin room. The...

No exaggeration. The best B & B we have ever stayed in. The breakfasts....oh the breakfasts!!!!! Lovely people too. Richard is as interesting a host as you could find. Penny was lovely too!!

Big rooms, great location.....spotlessly clean.

As other reviewers have said, this is a really great B&B, located very close to the centre of Edinburgh. The owners are lovely, the breakfast good and our room (a family room) was huge (more than big enough for 2 adults and 2 teenagers) and comfortable. My only complaint was the noise from outside - we stayed on a Saturday night in a room at the front and made the mistake of leaving the windows open overnight - the noise of people walking past until the early hours keep us awake. Would still recommend though.

We have been staying here for several years at festival time & have always had a very warm welcome from Penny & Rick. It is a great B&B. The room is comfortable & a good size. The breakfasts are wonderful especially Penny's scrambled egg. It is well located in the Georgian new town & close to Princes Street. Highly recommended.
