Fabulous stay!
I stayed at the Abcorn for 3 nights and I couldn’t fault anything. The host is very friendly and helpful, the breakfast was wonderful; the room (I was upgraded) was spacious and spotless with a very comfortable bed and the facilities were great. There is a bus stop outside so travelling into the city and back (and Ikea) is easy and quick. Last but not least was the price, which was terrific value for money. I highly recommend this accommodation and will definitely be looking to return in the future!

Really nice bnb
We had a great time staying at Abcorn. Tony was very accommodating, and served breakfast every day. He also made us change for the bus, which was nice. The bed was comfortable, bathrooms tidy and room a good size. Heater worked wonders too. The guesthouse was a little worn in places, but it was perfectly clean. The only slight negative was the location. It's in a safe, quiet area and there's some nice restaurants nearby (go to Kwok if you get the chance), but to get into the city you need to take a bus for 10 mins. Not the end of the world as buses come about every 10 mins, but means you can't just stroll straight out into the heart of Edinburgh. I'd highly recommend staying here if you aren't bothered by the short bus trip.
