As usual the room was very comfortable and tastefully decorated. The host sare extremely helpful and got me around on the bus system. The only thing that was lacking were short breads. I remember short breads on previous visits so was looking forward to them. I guess I just had a little bad luck. :-)

53 Fredrick Street was fab. Located right in the heart of the city, easy to find and get to. Katy and David were fab hosts greeting us on arrival and always a phone call away if we needed anything. Definitely one of the best places I've stayed in the city, we will definitely return.

Five friends shared two triple rooms ( both of which were en suite) and we had a great time. Clean, friendly and quiet this is a great find. The only drawback is the stairs which are steep and several long flights up, so if you are fit ( like we were,) this is not a problem at all, but unsuitable...

Staying in New Town

Neighbourhood Profile
New Town
Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town, until after dark when strappy dresses come out to play. This is the city’s central business district with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric squares, and self-important statues. But it’s also a very wanderable neighbourhood, with a healthy bustle at almost any time of day and fine people-watching in places like St Andrew's Square which fills with picnickers around lunch. You’ll also find a series of cheerful basement bistros on Hanover Street, while dark Rose Street has something of the feel of an undiscovered back alley and is chock-full of characterful pubs and small independent shops.

“Our room was facing the back of the building, had great big windows and a nice breeze to fill the room when we wished. We had two king beds for three adults and were very comfortable. Good towels and shower. Hair dryer in the room and a convenient multi-plug power strip for charging your phones, razor, etc. ”

“We had the room with separate bathroom/toilet, which we were aware of at completion of booking and was reflected in price and did not cause an issue. This had been the only room left when booking. The only negative was the location of the room, due to noise from the lively street below. On any further stays I would chose a room at the rear of the property. As other people have said there are a fair few stairs but unless you have limited mobility this should not deter you from choosing this Bed & Breakfast. All in all a lovely stay in a fantastic city. ”
