    Lovely guest house

    It wasnt as close to town as we hoped but this was more than made up for by the excellent service, ability to adapt our breakfast- my sister is gluten free and im veggie! The room was lovely and we had a delicious meal at the local insian restaurant Ronaq only a 10.minute walk away. We would definitely stay again

    Wonderful 😊

    My partner had planned a lovely wkend away to Edinburgh for the 2 of us so I could visit the Christmas Market as I had never been before, to Edinburgh nor the market. We wanted to be close to Princess Street so we could leave the car at the guest house & jump in a taxi there & back over the wkend so I helped look for a place to stay & honestly Blinkbonny House is the first property I looked at. I was immediately impressed by all the lovely positive reviews from previous guests & as I always check for pics they also impressed me so I took the chance to snap this lovely guest house up for the wkend 26th - 28th Nov. The property itself is lovely, very warm & cosy. Our room was a fantastic size, had everything we needed for the full wkend, never had to ask for anything 😊. Our en-suite shower room was lovely, shower was actually amazing. Bed super comfy. Super clean. Our host Sean could not of done more for us or been more helpful with info we asked about market/shops etc. He is a lovely host, very polite & friendly, very welcoming & you can clearly tell he loves doing what he does every day. The hosts also provide taxi cards so it's so easy to get to & from the property if you come via public transport or even just want to leave your car at Blinkbonny. Taxi takes around 8-10 mins straight to Princess Street & Sean even recommended we book early as the taxi companies do get busy at night. We look forward to our return to Blinkbonny House next year. Thank you Ella & David
