        A nice find in Edinburgh”

        Here is one of the charming old mansion,converted to B&B. For those who look for fancy, vanity at a modern hotel, donot bother. This house is old, full of graces, run by Mr Richard who is the wonderful operator. Breakfast served in the room at the exact time every morning. The fares are classic Scottish. I love salmon and haggis. This BB is clean and extremely quiet. Absolute silence is requested by host. It is located on major bus lines and within 1 mile from downtown.

        Richard was a fantastic host, he couldn't have been more helpful and considerate. We had a minor medical emergency which the Hotel was very helpful in accommodating our needs so taking away a good degree of stress. The hotel was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Neil and Chrissy.
