Mrs. Ursula Wright demonstrated us the perfect Scottish manners: kind, gentle, polite...we renamed her "our second mom". She gave us a really warm welcome and offered us a wonderful room. Nice, comfortable and - the most important - very very clean. We stayed there 2 nights and we enjoyed our time in Edinburgh. Mrs Wright was so helpful and she...

We stayed three nights at Ardgarth and were very pleased. Ursula is very welcoming and provides excellent advice on what to do. The rooms are comfortable and breakfast is excellent. It is only a 10' bus ride to Princes Street and a hundred yards from the beach which is really relaxing after a busy day walking round Edinburgh.

Ardgarth is exactly what a B&B should be: cozy, welcoming, and great value. Four of us in our 20s/30s, stayed at Ardgarth during a weekend break and loved it. The best part was the charming seaside location with quick bus access to the City Centre allowing visitors to experience the easily missed beaches of Edinburgh (Note: For those traveling alone...

This family run guest house was brilliant. The hostess Ursula was so welcoming and the girls working there were so charming, nothing was too much trouble. Beautiful white sheets and towels, and good quality loo paper!! Bus stop into Edinburgh a stone's throw away, and the sea at bottom of road. Would most definately stay there again and will be...

I spent only 4 nights here(solo female married traveller) and I should have stayed at least 10 days-my mistake! But I had a limited train ticket from London which could not be changed without an extra added-on cost!. I loved Ursula! She showed me a selection of rooms, singles/doubles, which were available. I chose room #4 on the 2nd floor,...

I stayed in Adgarth House with my mother whilst visiting Edinburgh. I found the staff to be exceptionally helpful, friendly and informative. The breakfasts were gorgeous, including vegetarian haggis, and the rooms comfortable and well equipped. I'll definitely use this guesthouse again.
