    Good location to walk into Edinburgh.

    Great location to walk into Edinburgh and off street parking as a bonus so close to the city. Bed was passable and breakfast ok if rather basic quality. The owner was very pleasant and helpful.

    Fantastic B&B

    This was our second time staying with Shaun and Elaine and it was just as good as our first. They are ever so welcoming and it feels like nothing is too much bother. The rooms are spotless and they are situated just a 20 minute walk away from the city centre. Shaun's breakfast is fantastic and fills you up for the day! We will definitely be returning again when we are next in Edinburgh!

    Very nice house in a lovely part of the city

    Blinkbonny House is a lovely house in a very nice area of the city. We stayed only one night and should've stayed at least one more to fully explore this beautiful and vibrant city. We first had a lunch in a very good Thai restaurant Nok's Kitchen in a nice area close-by - Stockbridge and then we walked to the centre and back late at night and felt very safe there. We had a nice dinner in one of the restaurants in Old Town, which we had reserved a few weeks before arriving, as the place is very popular and gets booked well in advance. The accommodation was very good and clean, the breakfast was lovely, proper cooked breakfast with plenty of coffee and a choice of fruits and cereals. We parked on their driveway. Our host Shaun was exceptionally polite and helpful. Our first visit to Edinburgh and Blinkbonny House was very memorable and we would like to return in the future. Thank you very much!

    A fantastic stay

    My partner and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Blinkbonny House. The room was very cosy, clean and had everything we needed. The BnB is well situated and we could easily walk in to the city centre. Shaun and Elaine were very friendly. We mostly saw Shaun during our stay and he was very attentive and cooked up a delicious breakfast every morning. It certainly sets you up well for the day. We will definitely stay again when we return to Edinburgh!

    Warm welcome as we were the first guests for months. The room had everything we needed for our stay, a freshly cooked breakfast and the location meant that we could either walk into Edinburgh or catch a bus at the end of the road. There is an excellent shopping centre nearby for those day to day essentials. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and wish the owners a better 2021 than they've had in 2020.

    Fab little find.

    Our stay was magical, we enjoyed it thoroughly. Sean could not have been more accomodating. The room was huge, clean and the bed super comfy. Bathroom was also clean,warm and huge. Breakfast was served in the dining room and was very filling and made to order. We will be back :)

    Sean was a perfect host. Very welcoming and friendly, the rooms were big light and immaculately cleaned. Breakfast was very nice. We would highly recommend this Bed and Breakfast.

  • 8.0.Very good

    The owner was welcoming and helpful. The breakfast was very nice. We had booked an ensuite but the bathroom, although private, was next door. The bedroom was an adequate size but the double bed was under the sloping ceiling which made access on one side rather difficult. Would have been very difficult for someone with physical problems.The parking was free but was on the street and weekdays there were parking restrictions around lunch time. It's possible to walk into the West End of Princes Street (20/25 mins).
