Great start to a trip!
4 stars 4

'Arrived at 7 AM, after an all-night trip from Canada.We were looked after quickly, full breakfast provided even though we weren\'t due one until the next day.The room we were given turned out not to be as booked, but it was corrected quickly and the replacement, quiet back room, looked after us royally.The location was perfect, as we were a short walk away from \'local\' pubs and the bus service was across the street, ...Seven minutes to the \'Royal mile\'. David and Margaret patiently answered all our \'touristy\' questions and provided \'change\' for the bus.We would come back again and would recommend to our friends and family. Enjoy! Tom'

lovely guest house
5 stars 5

'We stayed two nights, and the accommodations and service could not have been better. Very clean, friendly, and nice touches. We needed to leave our luggage early one morning before we checked in later that day, and that gladly kept it for us and then carried the two heavy bags up two big flights of stairs for us while we were out all day. Food was quite good as well. Wonderful family. Totally recommend!'

Girly Weekend Away
5 stars 5

'Beautiful guest house, very clean and spacious rooms. Lovely breakfast with plenty of choice. Very welcoming hosts who were helpful when asked but not intrusive. We walked to/from the city centre which took approx. 10-15 mins and sometimes got a taxi which was max. £8. I would definitely recommend this guesthouse and would love to stay here again.'

The Best B & B
5 stars 5

'We loved Gifford House! Our room was large and looked onto a back garden and Arthur\'s Seat. Our host was very accommodating, he helped us with bus routes, where to go, where to have dinner, he just knew everything. He also let us use his phone to call our credit card company. He and his wife went out of their way to be helpful! Breakfast was fantastic and there was a large selection of jams and fruits and we just stuffed ourselves..scrambled eggs were perfectly cooked. We had a great stay & didn\'t want to leave!'

Encantador!!
4 stars 4

'Nos alojamos en esta casa de huéspedes del 25 al 29 de setiembre y realmente quedamos muy satisfechos. La habitación era hermosa,el desayuno y la atención de Margaret y David fueron excelentes. Nos encantaria que en el salón comedor pusieran música funcional a la hora del desayuno, es solo una sugerencia!. Si volvemos a Edimburgo sin dudarlo eligiriamos \"The Gifford House\" nuevamente!!. Un gran saludo desde URUGUAY para Margaret & David'

'Stayed in this great B&B for a weekend with 2 sixteen yr. olds for the University open day in June. Everything about this accommodation was excellent with a fabulous breakfast. It is very well located slightly out of the City Centre but on a well serviced bus route with stops virtually outside the door. would definitely return and recommend.'
