This was my second time back in Edinburgh and my second time at Brett's place. This place was perfect for me and my wife. Private bathroom? check. Comfortable bed? check. Filling breakfast? Heck yes. Hospitality? Through the roof. Honestly, you'll never this kind of hospitality anywhere else.

Brett's mom is really a lovely and helpful lady! Her flat is cute and clean, because of many flowers, the flat is always elegant in smell. Due to the early flight, Brett's mom made delicious Thai food for me! Thank you very much! Although the stay was really short, I enjoyed it very much. That's my last view of Scotland, And first view of Airbnb. ❤️

Absolutely fantastic! Easy to find, warm welcome and offered tea, coffee, and chocolate on arrival. Room was clean, with a nicely decorated en suit. Location was great, with a £7 cab into the centre of town (30 min walk). Breakfast menu is great, full scottish breakfast, salmon and eggs, fruit salad, toast and croissants. Served with hot drinks, water, and orange juice. Overall, really well looked after and will definitelg stay again.

Brett's home is very good for no matter traveling alone or couples. British breakfast is very good provided by his mom. You just need to tell her what you want to have and when, then she will get things ready once you wake up. Parking space is provided, which is another plus as well, if you are traveling by cars. Would definitely recommend this place.
