This was our second stay at the Townhouse, this time for 3 nights during the Edinburgh Festival. This beautiful house is in a great location for accessing all areas of the city and the private car park is a bonus. Our bed was super comfy with a spotless en-suite shower room and the breakfasts were plentiful and delicious. The hosts,... More

13 of us descended on Susan & Robert for family wedding in Edinburgh and we could not have been looked after better. The accommodation is clean, comfortable, well-appointed, the service impeccable, and the porridge . . . well a single bowl just isn't enough - it's that good! Could be habit-forming!

We stayed with Susan and Robert for 5 nights and were delighted. Very comfortable room, excellent breakfast, convenient location and we always felt at home. It was our first visit to Scotland and Susan and Robert were very helpful whenever we needed some local knowledge or suggestions. Highly recommended.
