Best B&B in Edinburgh
This is a fantastic B&B - comfortable, delicious made to order breakfast with real Scottish porridge and vegetarian haggis amongst the things on offer. We felt very well looked after - in fact spoiled. The house is spotless and the bedroom extremely comfortable. I really cannot recommend it highly enough - definitely hope to secure a room there when we next visit Edinburgh.

Superb BnB, Great Neighborhood
Ashdene House was ideal! Absolutely spotless, cozy, nicely furnished, great location in the Grange - about a 20 minute walk to Old Town center. We were there for Fringe and it was good to be away from the bustle. Terrific breakfast with many options. And Caroline was a superb hostess and very accommodating.

Very comfortable with a friendly hostess. A very nice breakfast. In room dean, coffee and cocoa. Extra seating in room as well as a small study down stairs. A bit outside of downtown but very easy access with bus pass. Close to the Meadows, large park.

Comfy B&B
It was all very comfortable & nice. Nice area, easy to get to public transport or just walk! Great pubs for dinner or a pint within a few blocks. Room was clean, comfy, breakfast was good. Our only complaint was the stairs. 40 of them up to room every day. If you are older or have bad knees... this is difficult. There should be a mention on the website that there are stairs & no lifts. But otherwise; HIGHLY RECOMMEND’
