Briefly: Clean and nice rooms. Ask for room 14 -- even if you have to pay a little extra -- it is special and has a panoramic view of this beautiful town. Breakfast is rich and diverse (relative to other UK hotels, do not expect the richness a mediterranean breakfast). Kind and helpful staff. Unique library and bar. Unique decorations....

We have stayed here 3 nights in June 2014. We got a lovely and huge double room with sea-and cityview. The building is old a little bit, but it is very close to the city centre, 5 mins walk. There are nice restaurants and pubs around 5-10 mins walk as well. The breakfast was simple, could do it better with...

We booked this hotel because of the pictures and reviews, and we were very pleased with our decision. It is about a 25 min walk from the railway station or a £7:00 taxi ride. The house was built for the owner of the Scotsman news paper so the ground and first floors are old and spectacular if you like sweeping...

Ok, So I booked this place after trawling round the internet looking for somewhere nice for my girlfriends birthday. It looked great. Upon arrival I was impressed. Once in the room I found a grubby mark on the sheet and the window looked like it needed a lick of paint. I would have stayed there myself but as it was...

Second time we have stopped here. Lots of positives, comfortable rooms, free tea coffee and water. Friendly, helpful staff. Things that could improve, bar should be open after 11pm for residents and breakfast service need to be better organised.

Great place. Friendly Staff. AMAZING Scottish breakfast! The guest house looks like an ancient home with a very grand staircase. The only con is that parking is a bit too far. Its about a 5-7 min walk away.

Stayed for 3 nights at the beginning of November. We had emailed the day before to ask if possible for a higher room and this was granted - we were in twin room no 21 on the 4th floor - our view was over towards the back of the hotel overlooking the Dean Village (if you have the opportunity to...

Because we arrived early in the day, a lounge area, with tea, coffee and biscuits allowed us to relax after long journey. We were graciously given a large twin room, #14. at the top floor of the hotel. Long expanse of window overlooked Dean Village. The modern furnishings contrasted well with the period interiors. Breakfast provided was a classic Scottish...

We first stayed here in November 2014 and revisited again recently. However our 2nd visit was not as enjoyable as the first. Super location at Edinburgh's West End which makes it convenient to walk to the majority of places. The room and bed itself was excellent. Bathroom was looking tired and in need of tlc. It was a bath with...

Staying in Stockbridge & Dean Village

Neighbourhood Profile
Stockbridge & Dean Village
Just downhill of New Town and attractively straddling a river near the elegant Royal Botanic Garden, it’s small wonder that Stockbridge became one of the city’s first hip neighbourhoods. It’s now one of Edinburgh’s most desirable, though many bohemian touches have fallen away as its residents have matured and the area has gentrified. Some second-hand shops cling on, but mostly residents display refined tastes in basement bistros, gastropubs, coffee and antique shops, boutiques and delis and at the Sunday farmers' market. A pleasant ten-minute walk away, along a leafy riverside path beside the gurgling Water of Leith, lies Dean Village. This sleepy neighborhood of medieval half-timbered houses still retains much of the village feel it had when watermills plied their trade here. Beyond, the wooded riverside path feels even more remote as it climbs to the sculpture gardens of the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art.
