We had an lovely stay at Eric's house! Our room was beautifully decorated as was the rest of the house. 5 stars for cleanliness as well! Eric cooked us a very filling and tasty Scottish breakfast. He was also very friendly and informative of the local area. The house is in a great location. A short walk away from the city centre. I would recommend Eric's lovely home to anyone!
Eric is very kind and helpful, but very respectful concerning his guest's privacy.
The room was cosy, the bathroom tidy. The Breakfast Eric provided was delicious and you shouldn't leave without having tried Eric's scrambeled eggs!!
We had a great stay and hope to return one Day.
Connection to public transport is very good, and you can also walk into the City, if you enjoy a 20minutes walk.
Eric var en utmärkt värd och vi trivdes väldigt bra både på B&B och i området. Rummet var ljust och fräscht. Det fanns vattenkokare med möjlighet att göra kaffe och te varje dag. Det fanns även flaskvatten och kakor.
Med ett par friska ben är det gångavstånd till alla sevärdheter i stan. På The Shore som låg ca 5 minuters gångavstånd från B&B fanns flera bra restauranger.
Varje morgon serverades en god skotsk frukost. Vi fick välja precis vad vi ville ha från en meny så lagade Eric det till oss. Vi återkommer gärna till Edinburgh igen och skulle gärna bo på Rainbow Hermitage igen.
Wir hatten eine sehr schöne Zeit in Edinburgh. Eric war ein wundervoller Gastgeber, wir haben uns wie zuhause gefühlt. Alles war sehr sauber und geschmackvoll, das Frühstück war sehr gut und wir würden immer wieder bei Eric wohnen! Die Umgebung ist schön, ein großer Supermarkt direkt um die Ecke, Restaurants, Pubs und gute Busanbindung! Vielen Dank Eric und viele Grüße an Soraya! Steffi und Martin
Chambre très agréable dans une ville charmante. Le logement correspond en tout point aux photos postées sur l'annonce. L'endroit est très propre, rangé, et la décoration très soignée. J'ai pu testé le scottish breakfast qui était excellent. Je recommande vivement cette annonce.
Eric was an excellent and welcoming host. He provided thorough instructions on how to travel to and from the airport as well as tips on how to travel through the city with public transportation. The room was clean and well appointed, just like the pictures. The bathroom was also very clean and modern. It was a shared bathroom, but this was never an issue as the other guests were very mindful and respectful of the shared space. Eric cooks a mean full scottish breakfast, but also always provides lighter fares such as a variety of cereals, fresh breads, and toast. The location was in a nice peaceful area of town across from a lovely park and a short bus ride from the old city center, although several times we just walked. My husband and I thouroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend this place. It was worth every penny and more!
We had a lovely stay in Edinburgh, a nice quiet and relaxing break. The bedroom and the bathroom were both clean and furnished well. Breakfast cooked by Eric each morning was delicious!
