Great find - will return
Very enjoyable stay. Very friendly host. Lovely accommodation, gorgeous breakfast and brilliant location. Choice of 7 buses running past every few minutes for 1.60. Didn't need to use my car. Approx 25 min walk to Royal Mile. Bonus of free parking.

I’d stay here again
Nice location, right on the bus route to/from Edinburgh. Gracious and helpful host. En-suite was modern though the home is Victorian.

Scotland vacation
Large comfortable rooms. Great breakfast and Cath was so accommodating. Talked us through the bus route and told us where the good pubs were. Thanks.

Wonderful
My son and I stayed at Alba House for a month. I would definitely stay again and highly recommend. Cath and her family are great people. I also loved Rocky, Zelda and Maisy. Cath can tell you anything you need to know about Scotland. I so enjoyed getting to know her during our stay. She is a lovely human being and works very hard. Her place is charming, clean and comfortable. We stayed on the third floor and the one picture is out of the sky light window in the bathroom. The only thing I would say is don't pick the third floor if you don't like climbing stairs. 😁 I just thought of it as burning calories.
