B+B Edinburgh

Edinburgh, Scotland

Bed and breakfast accommodation in a fascinating listed building combining economy with real character - it is worth staying here just to see the galleried library lounge, not to mention the eccentric atmosphere, period features, generous breakfasts and excellent value for money.

Location

7 / 10

Five minutes by taxi from Haymarket Station and a short tram-ride from the city centre, B+B is located on a quietly stately residential street in the West End, but there are plenty of places to eat and drink on nearby Shandwick Place.

Style & character

8 / 10

Carefully retained high-Victorian period features dominate the public rooms - all fabulous fireplaces, painted ceilings, acres of marble and overwrought brass, although with some jarring injections of ‘modern’ furnishings and frankly criminal lighting. Upstairs in the bedrooms the look is firmly contemporary/boutique on a budget. It all feels wonderfully eccentric - how many hotels advertise funeral packages?

Service & facilities

7 / 10

Friendly, if a bit brisk. They will happily recommend places to eat and you can ask for anything from a toothbrush and razor to a bicycle or a laptop.

Rooms

7 / 10

The 27 bedrooms are clean and comfortable if a little basic, with bright, attractive bathrooms. Frills are at a minimum: house-branded toiletries, instant coffee and Freeview TV, although there are free UK calls from the direct dial phones.

Food & drink

9 / 10

Breakfast is a steal: no curling eggs or flabby bacon as everything is cooked to order - as good and generous as in many four-star hotels. There is a pleasant residents’ bar - unfortunately dominated by an enormous television (as is the breakfast room). Help yourself complimentary coffee, tea and biscuits are always available in the business room, just off the library.

Value for money

9 / 10

Double rooms from £65, including breakfast. This is one of the best bargains in the city. Free Wi-Fi.
