Our host, Irene, was lovely and extremely welcoming. She had brilliant local knowledge and lots of suggestions for things to do and see. The room was very big and beds were comfortable. Breakfast was delicious, location was central in a really pretty neighbourhood. I highly recommend this accommodation.
We are already planning our next stay here!
Nice B&B with great location, just 8 to 10 mins walk to Edinburgh Waverley station. All major sightseeing spots are in walking distance, plenty of local and international cuisines can be found nearby.
My room is as clean, tidy and spacious as shown in the advertisement. Tessa is helpful and friendly, the biggest surprise is she got a cat working with her in the common room! Miss the fury housekeeper granny honey so much!
The hostess made us feel welcome. We were a little daunted by the number of stairs with the promise of a great castle view.
We enjoyed our stay at the B&B Heart of Edinburg. The room was set for 3 guests instead of 4 and they quickly adjusted the room to accomidate our stay. Tessa was very helpful with any questions we had. It is very close to all attractions in Edinburg so you can walk anywhere. The breakfast was wonderful and we would also recomend the restaurant for lunch or dinner as well. We enjoyed a wonderful visit with the cook Barry in the restaurant as well.
Myself and my brother decided to take a trip to Edinburgh at the last minute. Tessa was very kind in helping us with accommodation - we booked in with only a days notice.
We were very well looked after on arrival by Irene who also kindly brought us up to speed on the best local places to eat at and experience.
The room was very comfortable and India Street is perfectly located for walking about town seeing all the sights - also great for evenings with Stockbridge right the doorstep and superb restaurants only a short stroll away.
The added bonus of having breakfast each morning gave us time to have proper conversations with our host, setting the day up perfectly and made us feel very homely.
We'll most definitely be recommending India Street to our family and friends.
My friend and I come from China. Although we have studied in the UK for almost two years, we were both impressed by the delicate decoration and so many details. No doubt, this is the place where I want to stay next time if I have a chance. The host is really amiable. The room is lovely, tidy and clean. We also enjoyed the excellent breakfast made by the host. Not long walk from this place to main streets and Edinburgh Waverley station. Nice view out of the window. Quiet and scenic neighbourhood. Perfect experience. It is certainly good value for money.
Very clean and uniquely beautiful house, the room was spacious and well equipped, everything looks just like the pictures. Wonderful breakfast -- a very pleasant surprise! Irene was a lovely and thoughtful host, very attentive but great respect for privacy. Highly recommended!
A lovely location in the New Town, with a very special view. Up a good few flights of stairs, but our hosts helped us with the bags. Breakfast at Rick's below is top nosh! Comfortable and well appointed room, shower not the best but fine. A great lounge area to relax in too, roaring fire, a sense of living grandly. We had a great time!
A great place to stay! A very warm welcome was given by Tessa - plenty of information and suggestions. She could answer all our questions. The location was perfect for our stay; everything in walking distance. Lovely room and delicious breakfast. If ever we are visiting Edinburgh again we will return to India Street.
I was made to feel very welcome indeed and I have absolutely no complaints about the hospitality at all. The premises were lovely, clean, well kept and well appointed. The breakfast room/ kitchen was great, taking in the sun and overlooking the street below the end of India street. I was made to feel very comfortable, even giving me a sofa to watch the Ireland Scotland rugby match. The area was central and within reasonable walking distance of most of the places I was going to in Edinburgh. A great place to stay when visiting Edinburgh.
The reservation was cancelled due to ill health........therefore no review!
Tessa guest was lovely and seemed to enjoy her stay with us, we were happy to have her with us. We hope she will come back again soon, with her baby and partner, for a longer stay.
Tessa was a lovely and pleasant guest. We loved looking after her during her stay and hope you will be back again soon Tessa!
