Our house is an late Georgian/early Victorian Townhouse. We consider our home as a quiet one where our guests can relax during their stay in Edinburgh. For this reason we ask your guests to not make any unnecessary noise. Our floors are original English (website hidden)ease help us maintain this by not using high heeled shoes indoors and avoid dragging heavy suitcases across the floors.
The entire house is non-smoking. You can of course smoke outside in our front garden.
Check Out time is 11am, at the latest, unless otherwise arranged with owners.
You will have a key to your room and also a front door key for you to come and go as you please. Your hosts Eric & Alessandro live on the premises and are pleased to help you with any information they can provide to make your stay enjoyable. We also speak Italian..
This was probably one of the best airbnb's. Almost like a hotel service at a local home. Scottish breakfast was wonderful. Eric was very professional and friendly. The room was cute and size perfect for two people. Good privacy, and clean. Wonderful location right in front of the park, right near the bus station for a short ride to the city center and the train station.
A short stay in Eric's B&B but an excellent moment.Very nice house , decorated tastefuly, very clean and well-equipped ( plug adaptator ) . Eric is very interesting, helpful, accommodating (We had to leave early on the morning but the same huge breakfast was expecting us ) . I hope to come back in Edinburgh longer and in Eric's B&B. The place is also quiet and close ( by bus or walk ) to many attractions. I recommend.
Charmante maison de ville/hôtel particulier dans un quartier sympathique d’Édimbourg. Assez calme, pratique de pouvoir se garer gratuitement dans la rue. Petit-déjeuner ultra-copieux au contenu adaptable. Hôte très organisé et très sympathique.
Seul petit bémol : on sentait un peu les ressorts des lits et les stores ne coupaient pas trop la lumière.
Eric was a great host, very welcoming, easy to chat to and a mine of information on where to go and what to do in and around Leith and Edinburgh. The b&b is in a lovely area opposite the park and we walked into Leith and had a great time. Highly recommend staying there. Thanks Eric.
Jim and Val Sweeney.
We had a very pleasant night at Erics. He provided useful travel instructions and was helpful in letting us arrival early as we had a wedding to attend.
The room was spotless and comfortable. Breakfast was excellent.
We would definitely stay there again
Siamo stati tre giorni da Eric e Alessandro. La casa è molto accogliente e loro molto ospitali. Le colazioni che ci preparava Eric erano fantastiche. Noi avevamo la macchina e - a differenza del centro di Edimburo - lì c'era abbondante parcheggio. La abbiamo lasciata là e abbiamo usato il bus che in 10 minuti ti porta in centro. Tra l'altro il bus che porta all'aeroporto ferma lì vicino. Davanti alla casa c'è un grande parco, e nei pressi c'è la zona della movida serale. Insomma è un posto da raccomandare e - per quello che ci riguarda - dove torneremo volentieri. Infine, è curioso sentir parlare toscano dal padrone di casa scozzese...
Excellent trip, went over Valentines weekend, for us, great location as only about 10 mins from city centre but far away enough to be peaceful at night which is what we were both looking for in a nice neighbourhood. We loved the breakfasts! really set us up for the day, Eric cooked up a yummy cooked breakfast with additions of black pudding, haggis if you wanted or a choice of yummy cereals, yoghurts & lovely jams with toast. House is beautifully decorated from what we saw, wooden floor boards in bedroom with bonus of tea, coffee, bottles of water & biscuits which was great for a snack on our days out. Oh yes also hairdryer in bathroom which was a bonus so I didn't need to worry about packing one. We cant thank Eric enough, he was very hospitable, friendly and helpful when we had questions about the buses, he even wrote bus numbers & some times down for us. If you are on a bit of a budget & don't mind 1hr 10 min journey to airport, we got a bus nearby Eric's which cost an unbelievable £3.50ppn!. We will be recommending here for to our F&F for sure!. If you are looking for somewhere comfy, warm, quiet, good value for money with really good hosts, BOOK HERE! You wont regret it!! Thanks again Eric, you really made us feel very welcome in your home - we had a wonderful trip to Edinburgh.
