About This Listing
Located on Frederick Street, the Bed and Breakfast is owned by David Tweedie and is situated on the second and third floors, of an original Georgian townhouse that dates from circa 1820, in the heart of Edinburgh's New Town.
This cosy and friendly Bed and Breakfast is also managed by Tessa. Both David and Tessa grew up in Edinburgh and are always on hand to give helpful advice on the best places to visit, eat and, of course, drink in the city.
This listing if for a double or twin room. For rooms for 2 , please see our other listings. This room can consist of either a double bed or two singles.
We are located just a minute's walk from Princes Street, with stunning views of the New Town, Princes Street, and, from some rooms, Edinburgh Castle. This is an elegant and extremely spacious guest house, typified in the welcoming open hall with feature bow wall and staircase to upper floor.
The B&B in Edinburgh has the added bonus of offering easy access to Edinburgh Airport and major road and rail networks. As Waverley Railway Station and St. Andrew Square Bus Station are both in the city center and under ½ a miles walk away. The Edinburgh International Conference Centre is also easily reached by foot or a short taxi-ride from the Edinburgh guest house.
The guest house offers all the comforts and facilities that the discerning traveller visiting Edinburgh for business or leisure expects. The newly decorated bedrooms are each individually designed to make your stay as comfortable and relaxing as possible, having all the modern conveniences but still retaining a classic environment, including magnificent original carved Adam fire surrounds, Scots pine paneling, cornicing and en-suite shower rooms.

Tessa has been an great host and was delightful and helpful, especially since we had to leave early in the morning to catch our flight. The room we had was large and confortable and in perfect walking distance from everything. Definitely a place to choose when visiting Edinburgh.
Tessa's BnB was absolutely brilliant! The room was enormous, had a great bathroom to myself, and the breakfasts in the restaurant downstairs were so tasty- lots of options, and set me up well for exploring the city.
The location was just perfect- walking distance from everything!
Tessa, thanks for all your tips, and for being so friendly and welcoming- it was such a pleasure to stay!
