'I stayed in the Albyn Townhouse with my daughter and would thoroughly recommend! A beautiful house with friendly owners. Lydie was very attentive and our room was beautiful - crisp white bed linen, fluffy white towels and so clean! Lydie makes all her own cakes which were available at breakfast time along with cooked breakfast, savoury and sweet pancakes, juices etc! I will certainly be staying there again, and will be looking soon as to when I can go back!'

5 stars 5

'We traveled as a group of 4, myself and my partner and my two children, 16 & 14 (a difficult age to please, and they enjoyed themselves immensely). The House itself is a beautifully well presented 3 storey Townhouse that inside is unique, quirky, very cute and homely. The rooms are exceptionally clean and well maintained, with lovely little touches and attention to detail, such as sweets left on the bed on arrival. We booked the King/Twin and it was just lush, and a Double room which was smaller (obviously) but none the less lovely. The showers had little glitches of cooler water for very minute moments but nothing of significance or to complain about. We walked from the Hotel to the City Centre thro the Old Grassmarket and if you dont mind walking it doesnt really take more than about 30 minutes. The Owner Lydie, and her Assistant Patrice, were both very keen to help, welcoming and informative, fabulous Customer Service all round from both Ladies!! And to top it off the food is to die for :))) Hopefully I can find an excuse to visit again very soon and would recommend it to anyone.'

The hotel was comfortable, warm, spotlessly clean and served up a delicious breakfast from a good menu providing for all dietary needs. All staff were very friendly and helpful. We can't recommend this hotel more and look forward to staying there again. Thank you Lydie'

Our Halloween trip to Edinburgh
5 stars 5

'I was travelling with my youngest daughter who is eleven for a half term trip treat to Edinburgh. From the moment we arrived we were made so welcome and Lynie ensured we could get straight into our room even though we were slight early. She gave us loads of information on how best to get around the city and recommended plenty local places to eat. Our room was very clean, well presented and beautifully decorated. We spent two nights at the Albyn and couldn't really fault anything. It was Halloween on our second night and on our return to the guesthouse after a busy day sight seeing, which had ending in a mercattours ghost and ghouls tour (which was excellent!) we found a Halloween pumpkin bag hanging on the door to our room, full of sweets for my daughter, who was very impressed! Breakfasts on both days were excellent with loads of choice. The fact that the owner Lynie is Parisian did not go unnoticed in her breakfast offerings with pancakes in particular that were a hit with my daughter. Over all it was a very pleasant stay and excellent value compared to what it can cost to stay in Edinburgh in other places! We would certainly stay there again on future trips to Edinburgh.'

The building and room was cozy and comfortable, charming and chic. The breakfast was amazing, and was arguably the best meal of our entire trip. The breakfast options were ample, and the portions and quality just right. We would definitely recommend traveling couples to lodge here, and will be back the next time we visit Edinburgh.'

'We stayed here for the weekend for the tattoo. Well what can i say,the Albyn met our expectations and more. We were met on arrival by the lovely Lydie.A warmer welcome you couldn't wish for. Our room no7 was spacious and nicely decorated with views over the city rooftops. This is a lovely house with a warm homely feel to it. The girls working here are polite and attentive with the room being spotlessly cleaned daily. If you like breakfast then this is the place for you.A superb choice on offer and plentiful.Dieting here is futile and with such fine fayre on offer why would you want to. A nice walk into the town centre through a park taking about 20-25 mins.Or there is the bus stop just up on the main road. Personally we enjoyed the walk back and forth. Would we come again,we most certainly would. The Albyn will be our first choice for hopeully many future visits. Our sincere thanks to Lydie and the girls for our wonderful stay. Kind regards Keith and Dawn'

Breakfast was excellent with plenty of choice and pleasant service. The owners were friendly and helpful and we were made to feel really welcome. Free wi-fi is available although it doesn't reach the top floor. A helpful information book is available in each room and the owners are willing to make bookings on your behalf.

'An absolute hidden gem tucked away down a classic Edinburgh street. Greeted by a warm, bubbly welcome and felt very relaxed as soon as we arrived. Our room was on the top floor and worth every step up! Very comfortable setting with a lovely ambience. Although a very informative book was provided on how to spend our time in Edinburgh, too much was probably spent in this beautiful room! Breakfast was neatly laid out with plenty of options. Fluent service with delightfully prepared food. For the coffee lovers a rich brew was constantly topped up. It was my partners birthday and was definitely the best he had ever had, after this I have no idea how I'm going to top it next year!'

Indeed,this place is a gem tucked away in a quiet corner.'

The city centre is a short walk or bus ride away. The accommodation standard is very high; the welcome and the food is second to none. More like a boutique hotel than a guest house. We would reccommend anyone to stay here if they were visiting Edinburgh. Thanks.'

'Boyfriend and I stayed for two nights at Albyn Townhouse. Everything went smoothly - parking spot right outside the house, warm welcome from David, as well as a clean and comfortable room with fantastic views of Edinburgh from the top floor of the house. There was a large choice at breakfast, particularly impressed by the amount of vegetarian options (savoury pancakes with cheese and eggs were a particular favourite.) Although a little way from the centre a busy bus route a couple of minutes down the road meant that we had no problem getting into town. The bus took about 10 minutes. But also, the area where the B&B is located had a lot of lovely cafes and shops. All in all, a great stay. Would not hesitate in coming back for our next Edinburgh adventure,'

The owners made every effort to ensure we had a good stay and gave us ideas of what we could do on the Thursday as we didn't know the area. Thank you for making us feel welcome and setting up a high chair for Grace in the morning as if it was home! Thanks again for your effort and kindness, would recommend (infact we already have done!) and we will stay again if in Edinburgh!'

'My girlfriend and I travelelled to Edinburgh for the fringe festival. Albyn was welcoming from the start, with all the staff happy to help in any way they can. David and Lydie are both lovely, and I highly recommend the 'chives pancake' at breakfast! Five stars :)'

excellent Guest House
5 stars 5

'A well run guest house in a cosy atmosphere. Rooms decorated with style and bathrooms modern and well equiped. All details in the house make it a homely place. Owners as well as staff very kind and helpful. Would always return to the Albyn TH. and can strongly recommend to others who look for an authentic scotish accomodation.'

5 stars 5

'This guest-house is just the right place to stay in Edinburgh! Everyone is really welcoming and friendly, the breakfast selection is a dream come true and the bed was very comfy! From Albyn Town House you can walk to the city centre if you wish so - or you can take one of several buses which stop nearby. Very nice shops and cafès in 5 minute walking distance. We (42 and 44) enjoyed our stay very much and hope to be back soon :-))'

Very nice stay
5 stars 5

'The Albyn Townhouse is very comfortable and classy. The breakfast was delicious although we missed the possibility to get a continental breakfast. The staff was marvellous. The room was very very nice, clean and huge. The view from our room was magnificient- could see all over the city and to the sea.'

Edinburgh during the festival
5 stars 5

'Great welcome, perfect location. We had a lovely large, comfortable room which was beautifully decorated. At breakfast there was a choice of anything you could ever want. Service was outstanding. Only a short bus ride or a pleasant 15-20 minute walk into the city centre. Some lovely restaurants around the corner.'

'I enjoyed my stay at Albyn House very much. The room where I stayed was large and comfortable. I was pleased to have internet access as well as a comfortable bed and a lovely modern bathroom. The atmosphere of the house was friendly and warm. The staff and the owners Lydie and David were always helpful and attentive. I felt at home. When at one point I thought that I had lost my sunglasses there was genuine concern and a genuine willingness to help. Fortunately, I found them! I would return again to Albyn House and I recommend it to anyone who wants a home away from home when staying in Edinburgh. My only sadness is not to have seem more of the dog!'

Wonderful experience
5 stars 5

'My grandson and I stayed at the Albyn for 4 days in May and we would highly recommend it, both for the hospitality and for the breakfasts. We usually walked to the Royal Mile (it was about 15-20 minutes walk, mostly through parks) and when needed, the bus was only a few blocks away from the Albyn. Lydie and David were always willing to answer questions and help in any way they could both before we arrived and while we were there. The room was large, immaculate and beautifully decorated and was exactly what we had requested. I would definitely stay there again.'

good choice

'This was a good choice for our group of golfers. The location was OK. The rooms tastefully decorated and nicely appointed, though a bit femanine for my taste. The breakfast selection was very good. The owner and staff treated us very, very well.'

lovely stay
5 stars 5

'Had a great 2 night stay at the Albyn Town House. Lydie and her staff were very helpful regarding my gluten/wheat and dairy intolerances in providing special bread, cake and milk for me. Great to get a car parking space reserved for us as these are at a premium in Edinburgh.'
