We were welcomed graciously into Eric's B&B. He immediately provided us with advice to get around town, like the bus from Leith into old and new town. Edinburgh is beautiful as always and with the B&B's location, we had a lovely view overlooking the park and were just a short walk away from the Leith Docks equipped with hip pubs and nightlife. The breakfast was a delicious bonus! A very nice time.
My boyfriend and I stayed with Eric after spending 6 days hiking the Great Glen Way. We arrived a lot earlier than expected but where welcomed with open arms. The house is beautiful. The room and bathroom were spotless. Eric even washed and folded our dirty clothes for us! (So thankful!)
The bed was incredibly comfortable and the breakfast was awesome. I would definitely recommend to a friend. Thanks!
Eric and his partner provided my husband and I with a lovely private room in their home. The room was tidy, neat and warm. It was beautifully decorated and the king size bed was very comfortable! Eric cooked us breakfast on both mornings that we stayed and it was both delicious and generous. Their home is close to the city centre, for us it took about 25 minutes to walk in. It is opposite quite a lovely park where you can walk and is close to many other shops and restaurants. We would happily stay here again and recommend it to anyone seeking a place to stay in Edinburgh.
We had a lovely stay at the B&B Boutique. Eric was a very kind and gracious host and made us feel very welcome. The room was lovely and had everything we needed (tea and coffee. etc, plenty of storage) and the bathroom had a hairdryer and toiletries to use. The location was perfect for us, very near the bus stop and within easy walking distance of the foot of leith walk. The breakfast was also very good. We would definitely recommend this b&b to anyone travelling to Edinburgh/Leith for the weekend.
Lovely home and excellent room and breakfast. Very welcoming but let you enjoy your privacy too. Recommended.
Eric & Alessandro are very warm and friendly. Eric 's English breakfast is delicious! The room was charming, cosy and the bed... INCREDIBLE. Location is convenient and close to the shore where you could find finest fish restaurants. I definitely recommend this place!
