    Great B and B

    We stayed in room 9 over New Year and it was amazing! Jim is such a helpful, friendly and welcoming host, really knowledgable about the local area and he makes sure you are comfortable! The room is spacious, comfortable and clean with everything you need. The breakfast is delicious and plentiful! Appin House is a great location. Just off a main bus route served by many buses so you aren’t waiting more than a couple of minutes, parking is available if you’re driving on the safe street and the centre of Edinburgh is in walking distance if you are happy to walk about mile and a half ish - so lots of options to suit all needs! We also stayed here about 2 and a half years ago which is why we chose here to come back to and it was just as good and we will definitely return when we come back to Edinburgh!
