Sometimes the impersonal nature of a chain hotel can take the shine off your chosen holiday destination. Edinburgh is a city steeped in history and a quiet townhouse can serve as a more fitting base for an exploration of the Scottish capital’s many wonders. B&Bs are a long tradition and each establishment has something unique to offer as the owners look to make their mark in a busy and competitive market.
You’ll find Victorian and Georgian guest houses spread throughout the city from the New Town to Leith to Morningside. Most feature a handful of lovely rooms and you’ll find traditional grandeur, contemporary luxury, and cozy comfort on offer.
Six Brunton Place combines Georgian elegance with sumptuous furnishings for a truly indulgent experience. For the more personal touch, head to Gerald’s Place and stay with one of the most genuinely friendly and welcoming hosts you are likely to meet. Or perhaps you would prefer the chic contemporary design of 94 Dalkeith Road.
When it comes to a warm welcome, friendly advice and traditional homemade food you simply cannot beat a good B&B. So, for some of the finest hospitality that Scotland has to offer, why not check out our top ten Edinburgh B&Bs list and see if you can spot your dream holiday base.
