Stayed in the apartment recently as a family of four for a week. The owners were very welcoming and accommodating. We noticed a radiator was slightly leaking and it was fixed within the hour! Accommodation is well furnished, with a fully kitted out kitchen, power shower in bathroom, large double bed in bedroom and a sofa bed for living room....

Great modern stylist apartment. Very spacious and it is a small home from home. Very welcoming by the owner. Very knowledgeable about the locality. Would highly recommend because it is excellent value.

The apartment was perfect. A definite 'wow' moment when you walk in. As a family of 3 the apartment gave us so much more space than a family room in a hotel would. The decor is modern and bright with plenty of space and spotlessly clean. There is a fully equipped kitchen and some essential provisions kindly supplied by the...

We have visited Edinburgh many times and have stayed in a variety of B&B's. Dovecote House is probably the best we have stayed in. Spotlessly clean, extremely comfortable and beautifully decorated. Very convenient location as we were visiting our daughter who lives locally. We were made very welcome by Colin as Maggie was away and it was a bonus to...

This was the very first B&B we stayed in to begin our Scotland trip this summer, and it set the tone for the rest of the holiday! Maggie is a warm and very friendly person who made us feel welcome from the first step into Dovecot House. The rooms were very comfortable with everything we needed after our long flight...

I had a one night stay at the Dovecot and have to say I was delighted with my stay. My large bedroom was at the rear of the property and was very quiet - but I'm sure the front rooms would also have been quiet as the property is set well back from the road. Breakfast was plentiful, with Maggie...

I came to stay with Maggie and Colin in July 2011 for one night. I stayed pretty much every weeknight for the next year and a half. I have travelled widely and never have I have enjoyed a better or more welcoming experience anywhere in the world. The house is fabulous but as many reviewers have tasted, it is the...

We were so so happy with our stay at Dovecot! It was so easy to get to from the airport and to get into Edinburgh, especially when Maggie gave us all the help and advice we needed. We are two young, inexperienced travelers and Maggie was like a mum for us! The room we stayed in had a king bed...

This is the third time we have stopped here on our trip from Canada to Fife. Maggie makes you feel so welcome, it is like coming home. Dovecot is a short drive from the airport. Rooms are spotless. This time we weren't able to have a room with an ensuite, but we had our own designated bathroom down the hall...

Beautiful, spacious, clean (!!!!) and bright apartment. Great location. Very private and quiet, as detached from main house, with it's own entrance. 1st floor. Fully working kitchen with everything you might need. Great pressure in shower, always hot water, good heating, and a huge comfy bed with lovely fresh linen. Lots of good towels. Lovely views and within short walk...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A tastefully restored Victorian Villa located in a quiet tree lined road within the historic conservation village of Corstorphine yet only 10 minutes from the city centre and airport. Period features have been retained yet the interior is light, contemporary and welcoming. An ideal 'retreat' in the City or base for touring. ... more   less
