Lovely people, lovely breakfast with a big selection. Very reasonable priced bed and breakfast within walking distance of the city centre. Cosy and welcoming B and B, but in my opinion it's all you need. Thank you we'll be back.

This B&B didn't look too exciting on the outside but turned out to be a lovely little place. The staff were very nice and accommodating. Our room was cozy and the beds and pillows were very comfortable. The breakfast was excellent and it was no problem that we asked to have it made gluten-free. We received a very warm welcome...

Very well located B&B run by enthusiastic and friendly husband and wife team. The building is very characterful if somewhat dated and is good for short trips when just a bed is needed. Not a romantic getaway but a good base and value for money.

Great location, friendly welcome, lovely breakfast and went to the effort to borrow a cot for our baby when the other cot was already being used. Easy to get to from the airport, via the tram and close to lots of restaurants and bars.

We were thrilled with our room and excellent hearty breakfast each day. The couple that owns and runs the hotel was a knowledgeable source of information, and gave us advice on where to dine and places to go in Edinburgh. The location is a perfect place for exploring Edinburgh by foot. It was a 10 min walk to Waverley where...

Warm welcome from Freddie set the scene for a great stay. Parking a big plus this close to city centre. You leave your keys in room in case car needs to be moved. Hotel very clean and warm. Our room had everything we needed and although close to centre very quiet at night. Only thing we found was that the...

I stayed in this family run B&B with my teenage daughter for a short break away. The owner, Freddie, was lovely - he was very helpful and attentive. The breakfast was plentiful and delicious (cooked by Freddie). There was tea, coffee, hot chocolate and shortbread in the bedroom, which was restocked each day. The property is within walking distance of...

Stayed here for a cold, wet (well, it is Edinburgh) evening and would give every aspect 5/5/ Very warm welcome from the married couple in charge, room clean and large, tremendous location (5-10min from shops and tourist sights and whisky pubs) and the morning breakfast was much better than the soggy gruel I've paid a tenner for in dozens of...

Staying in Broughton & Calton

Neighbourhood Profile
Broughton & Calton
Lying where grandiose New Town townhouses give way to malls and utilitarian housing, Broughton and Calton have long been transitional neighbourhoods with a mixed identity. It’s here that Edinburgh’s gay village found a home in the 1980s. But gay culture is anything but overt along bustling epicentre Broughton Street; even if polished pubs, hip bistros, smart delis and art galleries all speak of affluent good taste. The top of Leith Walk is more ragged. This major thoroughfare boasts a famously gritty gay club, as well as a strip of good Indian restaurants. Regal Georgian and Victorian townhouses preside over largely deserted streets in Calton, where only the occasional restaurant or hotel brings much life. Even so, a steady trickle of idlers and picnickers pass by to climb Calton Hill for its wide-open lawns, wonderful city views, and curious monuments – an Athenian-style temple among them.
