    We loved this place and everything about it. Erlend is a fascinating host to talk to but not intrusive in any way . The breakfast is fabulous ( don't expect traditional cooked breakfast but far more exciting options ) served in a beautiful room lined...More

    The only problem with staying with Erlend & Hélène is will you stop laughing long enough to stagger out and enjoy Edinburgh? Quirky doesn't cover it – whimsical might. Swot up on the Wilhelm Scream before you go – that will put you one step...More

    This is the most charming B&B and like no other. It is in a fantastically central location in a stunning Edinburgh townhouse and Erlend and Helene are super hosts. The sheets smell heavenly and are SO soft (!), the rooms are unique and spacious and...More

    West End
    Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in
    industrial Britain had their most desirable
    neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes.
    Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest

    crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and
    sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along
