Hello! Firstly, I am thankful to the owners for the service they provided me. I spend in the "Moet" room (the en-suite one) in the Guest House approximately 4 months and a half, from the 3rd of January till May the 15th. I decided to join 15 Merchiston Gardens' "family" just before Christmas in order to have a place where... More

We were Thrown out - so shortly after arrival that some of our things were still in the car (my mobile phone being one). "Ejected from the premises" on the word and the whim of a 10yr old lad (approx) who told his Mother I'd been rude to him when he opened the door to us. After having telephoned that... More

Obviously their interpretation of luxury suite is far far away from the real meaning. We booked the luxury suite which was a large room for sure but the room had the original poorly maintained wood sash windows (notorious for their draughts) which were difficult to close for a novice. There was an OLD CRT televison in the room, now that... More

My girlfriend and I stayed for one night for a night out at the stand comedy club. We had a very friendly welcome when we arrived and throughout our stay. The rooms are very clean and spacious. The place is a short distance to town, easily within walking distance with a lovely walk through the Meadows. Would recommend staying here.

Stayed here for three nights whilst visiting family. Enjoyed my stay here. Nice continental breakfast which you choose the night before and it is delivered to your door with a cheery 'Good Morning'. Very comfortable room. Excellent value for money.

Thank you so much for your kind review, we are delighted you enjoyed your stay. We can see what you mean when you say it gives you a happy potter vibe, it is a lovely example of a Victorian terrace house with architecture just like in Harry Potter. The reason for this is that J.K Rowling, author of Harry Potter... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
No 15 is a beautiful bed and breakfast in a wonderful residential suburb of edinburgh, just a 10 minute bus ride or 25-30 minute walk to Princes Street and the castle. There is free wifi. There are lots of fabulous restaurants close by plus wonderful shops. The house has 3 gorgeous bedrooms, all furnished with genuine antiques, persian rugs and wonderful deep sprung mattresses ensuring a peaceful deep night's sleep. Parking is free all weekend and from 5.30pm to 8.30am each week day. There is totally free parking all week just 400 metres from the B&B. This is a family home with 3 young children, who can be noisy in the mornings so ideally suited to those who want to experience life in a scottish household and want a lovely immaculately clean room and really friendly hosts. Continental breakfast is served to your room by breakfast tray on request for £5.00 per person. All credit card payments are subject to a 2.5% charge. We always try to check in all guests personally but having children does mean that sometimes we can't always be home but your key will always be available in the key safe so please let us know your arrival time where possible or call on arrival if there is no immediate answer at the door. We are strictly non-smoking. Our aim is to help you have a lovely visit to Edinburgh and one that you will always remember and look forward to coming back to. Please note that our latest check in time is 9pm unless prior arrangements have been made. Late check in is usually possible but only when we know about it before hand. ... more   less
