Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Such a lovely, beautiful, welcoming home! Eric was amazing and really helped us out when we didn't know where we were going. His breakfasts were lovely and kept us going for the long days of walking.

  • Eric and Alessandro were great hosts! The Scottish breakfast in the morning was one of the highlights of our trip! Our room was clean and comfortable, and we were thrilled to find bottled water in our room when we arrived after a long journey. The location was idyllic and only a short walk to the bus stop, which took us to the city center.

  • The home and room is beautiful and we were welcomed by lovely hosts. Although our stay was short is was very sweet and we'd recommend future guests to stay. Breakfast was lovely although I'm sad to say I wasn't converted to be a lover of haggis! Thank you guys for your hospitality

  • Beautiful, clean, house with perfect hosts. Eric and Alessandro were extremely welcoming and helpful, we even decided to stay another night last minute.A lovely breakfast with a wide variety to chose from. Great location, very close to a bus stop with buses going into town every ten minutes. I highly recommend!

  • Eric and Alessandro were the perfect hosts. Location was excellent, 15-20 min walk to Edinburgh City centre and a quick walk into Leith.

    Room was a good size with everything you need. Breakfast choice and quality was top notch.

    Would stay again next time we venture to the east coast

  • Eric and Alessandro are the most amazing hosts ever! Their home is amazing. It is truly such a lovely B&B and they make you feel so at home! Every photo they have on here looks exactly like the real place. We would stay there again in an instant. We highly recommend this place :)

  • La camera e il bagno sono esattamente come descritti; ambienti caldi, puliti e confortevoli. Il quartiere è tranquillo e non distante dalla Old Town: 30 minuti a piedi o 10 minuti in autobus.
    Persone molto gentili, disponibili e piacevoli; con cura ci hanno preparato colazioni tipiche e abbondanti.
    Siamo stati benissimo,altamente consigliato!

    The room and the bathroom are exactly how described; everything is clean, warm and cozy. The neighborhood is quiet and not so far from Old Town: 30 minutes by foot and 10 minutes by bus.
    The hosts are very kind, helpful and pleasant: they nicely made us typical and rich breakfasts.
    We really liked our stay, highly recommended!

  • Eric was probably the best AirBnB host we ever had, it's a shame that we missed his scottish breakfast. I would 100% book with him again!!

    October 2013
  • Very nice couple, we had a great stay. Very friendly. The breakfast was very good and they even provide vegetarian and gluten free food ! The house is lovely furbished. We wonder how they get so soft towels!! On top of that you have a direct bus to the airport.

Eric is a retired IT consultant who worked in Florence, Italy for many years. Originally from Edinburgh and thus the decision to return to "Leith" and embark on this B&B venture. Alessandro is from Viareggio, Italy and worked for many years in the fashion industry. He has joined Eric and they work together to make your Edinburgh stay an enjoyable experience!! Our Persian cat is called Soraya! She doesn't have the freedom of the house when we have guests..but, you might hear her meowing behind a closed door!!
