My partner and I stayed in this beautiful house for my birthday. Ross has done a brilliant job and the detail in each room Is just perfect! Bus route into the town just outside, restaurants a 5 minute walk away, and the breakfast is also gorgeous! We're planning on returning later in the year.

We've just returned from a 3 day break in Edinburgh, and I cannot recommend this lovely guesthouse highly enough. Ross was very welcoming on our arrival, and showed us around the house, which is a beautiful Victorian villa style property with plenty of period features. We stayed in the Premier Jacobean room. It was lovely. A massive 4 poster bed...

My first trip to Scotland was perfected by my stay at 23 Mayfield. The accommodations are beautiful, quiet, and within walking distance of all that Edinburgh offers (including the bus stop, which is right out the door). The host and proprietor, Ross, is inviting, humorous, and full of suggestions for a fun day's activities. The full Scottish breakfast is an...

We stayed here for a weekend in a Tudor styled room (number 2). The bed was a proper US sized king and the room gorgeous. Very nice bathroom as well (love the oversize towels). The room is a tad small but this is expected in a big city. The staff was extremely friendly and welcoming. They have a great lounge...

My husband and my teenage daughter stayed at the Family room for 3 nights. The room is located on the top floor with no adjacent rooms so it is very quiet and has a pleasant view of the back yard. The location is easy to find and right in front of a bus stop which is the main bus route...

We stayed in this wonderful place in late May. It was our first visit to Edinburgh and we will definitely be back. Despite not being in the center of everything we were able to walk most places with ease. Ross is a class host who offers excellent suggestions for local outings. The house itself is impeccably restored and stands head...

From the moment I saw pictures of 23 Mayfield online, I just knew it would be the perfect place for my partner and I to stay. Of course, you can never quite tell everything from a picture so I waited to find out what my own personal experience was like. As soon as we walked in to 23 Mayfield we...
