What a host, what a location !
Edna is top notch, a fantastic host and damn that woman can cook a breakfast to keep you going all day! Lovely area with a great night life, bus right outside but we decided to walk and nip into a few pubs on route.. highly recommended.

Bank Holiday fun in Edinburgh
I was visiting Edinburgh to attend a charity event called the Keith Turner Revue and this was my first time staying at Pillars House but I am sure it won't be my last. Edna and Greg were so accommodating and really looked after all their guests. The breakfast was amazing and all cooked to order. They even had gluten free options for my friend. The room was clean and comfortable and had everything you could possibly need. The en suite bathroom had a great shower, and shampoo, hand soap and towels were provided. The room even had a fridge with complimentary bottled water. The location is just a short walk to the Ocean Terminal and it's right on the bus route into town (15 minutes on the 12 or 16 or it's about a 30 minute walk up Leith Walk). I regularly visit Edinburgh and will definitely book Pillars house again on my next trip.

Welcomed by Greig, everything explained very clearly. Lovely bedroom. Thoroughly enjoyed delicious breakfast & chat with Wendy & Greig next morning.
