We thoroughly enjoyed our week long stay with Penny and Richard from July 9-15th and highly recommend this beautiful B&B. The location is great – only a 10 minute walk from Waverly train station, and a 20 minute walk from all the sites we wanted to see including Edinburgh Castle, Calton Hill, Holyrood Palace, Royal Botanical Gardens – and the...

Penny and Richard are great hosts. The location is walking distance to all the city sites. The rooms and breakfasts were great. Richard is very knowable about Scotland. He gave us excellent advice for places to go and see.

Well-located B&B in the New Town, less than ten minutes' walk from Edinburgh Waverley station. My room was quiet, very comfortable and characterfully decorated, with a view onto a pretty garden. The free Wifi and the shower both worked fine (both v. important on a business trip!). Richard and Penny were very friendly and keen to ensure that I had...

This bed and breakfast facility is centrally located in Edinburgh, as it is only about 30 to 45 minutes' walking time (maximum) from any of the major sites. It is impeccably clean, and the hosts were simply wonderful. The room was of a very good size, and could amply accomodate our family group of 4. Breakfast was extremely good, and...

I just had a delightful three-day stay at Penny and Richard’s. No. 38 Dublin Street is in a great location – centrally located yet in a quiet, mostly residential area. It is a charming old place that is very comfortably appointed and with all the modern conveniences. I had the front family room with a sitting area all to myself....

Smiling faces, excellent breakfast, beautiful spacious room and a crazy little dog! Just perfect! We felt more like staying with friends... We will definately go back... :) p.s: Don't worry about the dog. He is not everywhere. We just saw him and we wanted to meet him... :)

Return trip to No.38 after the refurbishment. Penny and Richard welcomed us back like long lost friends and, like last time, did everything possible to make us feel at home. After eating one of Penny's breakfasts food shouldn't be a problem for the rest of the day. This time we wandered across to Broughton St to eat (2 mins walk)...

My Mum and I stayed here over the weekend of 10th December so we could do some Xmas shopping in Edinburgh. I have been to Edinburgh numerous times and stayed in a few different places but this was by far the best.

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.

“Nothing to add - its a great B & B”

“We had booked a twin room and got what I think is a family room, but only payed for a twin room. The hotel is located below street level on a quiet street. We had windows to the street, or more exactly to the stairs leading down from the street. That was no trouble and it was always quiet when we went to bed. The room contained a large double bed, one single bed and a comfy sofa. The room was so cozy, although it sometimes smelled just a little bit of old rugs... But that was never a problem.”
