Ich war Anfang Mai 2014 4 Tage in Edinburgh und bin glücklich, diese schöne bed&breakast-Unterkunft gefunden zu haben. Sehr freundliche Begrüßung, sauber, sehr leckeres und gemütliches Frühstück, die Möglichkeit im Gespräch mit Margaret viele interessante Informationen zu erfahren, mit dem Bus ein paar Minuten im Zentrum.... Ich habe es sehr genossen und bin bei einem nächsten Besuch sicherlich wieder dort! :-)
Two of us stayed in the twin room and had a great visit to Edinburgh. The rooms were well equipped, clean, and full of touristy information. Margaret was an incredible help to us. She gave us travel information (buses, times, brochures), tips on what to see and how long things would take, and catered to our picky breakfast needs. She is a fabulous hostess and runs a lovely B&B.
What a warm welcome we recieved when arriving for our week long stay felt at home straight away comfortable beds charming rooms refreshments and home baking ready for us on arrival and breakfast was amazing with hosts brenda cooking breakfast in front of us and franc giving us great information all about north berwick also laid out if u did not want full scottish breakfast was cereal yogurt nuts and plenty fresh fruit great stay will definitely be back thanks again brenda and franc
Stayed 9/5 through 9/10 and then one night more before flying home 9/18. Margaret is a consummate hostess! The rooms are fittingly decorated and very warm & cozy. The breakfasts are charmingly served with attention to your tastes. She assisted us in making arrangements for experiences that would meet our needs - and was so helpful in every way. The bus stops just across the street, so public transit is easy. There is ample parking too! A wonderful B&B experience, which we would do again if ever in Edinburgh!
We had great 4 day in this very nice house. The room was lovely, well decorated and really conveniant! The bathroom was very nice and quite large too! The host was just perfect: she gave us really usefull advice about Edinburgh, she sure knows the city! She has a wide range of brochures about Edinburgh which turned out to be very practical and usefull. The breakfast was very good too, very diversified and tasty. The house is also perfectly located: it's in a very quiet and lovely suburb and it only takes 10 munutes to drive to the city center. There are buses every 5 to 10 minutes. I'd definitely recomend this place!
A dream fulfilled for us 3 Germans to visit Scotland. We had the best start we could imagine here in Richmond Cottage. A warm welcome with pastries and hot coffee served in our room, very friendly and helpful hosts and a very good scottish breakfast served in the kitchen, where we could ask our many questions and where we got a lot of goods tipps four our journey. The rooms are so pretty there, I felt like a princess when i slept in that beautiful bed. We loved to stay there for two nights and we missed Richmond Cottage and our hosts Brenda and Frank sometimes on our journey. We can highly recommend this b+b to all who plan to go to visit North Berwick. Thank you once more for all, dear Brenda + Frank!
This B & B is wonderful; Margaret is a most gracious hostess full of knowledge of her beloved City. The room was lovely with all the tartans on display, clean, warm and cozy. The B & B is perfectly situated for easy access to the Old Town and the train station. Breakfast was most satisfying and made me a convert to haggis. I can't recommend this B & B highly enough.
Our experience at the White House was incredible. Even before we left on our trip, Margaret helped us plan our three days in Edinburgh. Once we arrived, she helped us get oriented (we had traveled for 17 hours) and explained the best ways to get around. The convenience of the bus service to the center of the city was excellent, we were dropped off right in front and had no transfers. The rooms and beds were very comfortable. For breakfast, we felt like royalty. I hope to be able to return.
My friend and I stayed at Richmond Cottage for three nights. We used it as a base for playing golf. We arrived late in the evening on a Wednesday (which was no problem). Warm tea, sandwiches and a very warm welcome welcomed us upon arrival. The hosts were very warm and friendly and we felt at home right away. Time for breakfast, and what a great breakfast. Everything you could ask for before a day full of golf (full scottish brekafast cooked as we sat by the table). Comming home after golf was great. Some small talk with the hosts before a nice shower and getting ready for dinner on the town. It was only a short walk down to the restaurants and cozy pubs (and there are enough to choose from). After dinner and a few drinks we were glad to have the short walk back to the house - it is needed after a big dinner and a few drinks. We also had a "private" living room which we could sit and relax in. My friend and I can highly recommend this place - just make sure you book it before others do.
We very much enjoyed our stay at this bed and breakfast last month. The room was clean, comfortable and private - nicely decorated. Breakfast was delicious with several options to choose from. The house is on a big lot with a large parking area (very unusual in Edinburgh). It was about a 20 minute drive from Edinburgh airport and we could get a cab or bus into the city center, only about 10/15 minutes away. We received a warm welcome on arrival. Our room had a private bathroom and a view onto the peaceful back garden full of flowers and trees. Really nice. Highly recommended if you are arriving by car - or even if you're not!
I and my friend stayed here in July 2010, and we were overwhelmed by the cosiness of this place and and friendliness of the innkeeper! Our room and bathroom were very nice and clean, with a loving attention to detail. The breakfast was excellent, with a wide range of fresh fruit we haven't seen somewhere else. Liz Dunlop is a lovable person, always helpful with hints where to go and what to see etc., and she makes one feel at home. Thank you Liz, for a wonderful stay!
This is a great place to stay if you want to get away from the downtown hotel atmosphere and meet and explore the real Edinburgh. The breakfast itself is almost worth the price. The innkeeper is an extraordinary person who will have the answers to most of your questions and good on advice on what and where. You won't go wrong on staying here.
My daughter and I stayed here a little over a week and the whole experience was five star! Rooms were exceedingly well maintained and clean. Bathrooms were modernized and spotless. Breakfast was a well-appointed feast that began each day with the right touch. The Innkeeper was considerate of our needs in every way. Bus stop was just across the street making access to downtown a snap. If you plan on making a visit to Edinburgh with only the most pleasant lodging memories, this is the bed and breakfast for you.
Edimburgo: Entre Leyendas y Modernidad La capital de Escocia es un laberinto de calles adoquinadas donde sobreviven atrayentes leyendas y se erigen preciosas construcciones e interesantes museos. Este pasado latente mezclado con una modernidad desenfadada han hecho de Edimburgo la segunda ciudad más visitada del Reino Unido. Edimburgo sabrá cómo añadirle pasión a tus vacaciones.

O visitar las habitaciones de María Estuardo en el espléndido Palacio de Holyrood. En las noches viejas leyendas urbanas recorren la Milla Real. Impregnarse con sus aires medievales bien vale la pena; sobre todo si entras a la taberna Deacon Brodies, uno de los pubs más famosos de Edimburgo. Pero la cafetería que no podrás perderte es The Elephant House, famosa por ser el sitio donde tomó cuerpo la historia de Harry Potter. L a variedad y calidad de los museos de Edimburgo te sorprenderá. La ciudad atesora la mayor colección de whisky del mundo en el Scotch Whisky Experience y la primera colección de juguetes del planeta en el Museo de la Infancia. El recorrido clásico te conducirá a las obras de Matisse y Magritte en la Galería Nacional de Arte Moderno. Si amas el contacto con la naturaleza deberás subir los 251 metros del Arthur’s Seat, un antiguo volcán apagado situado en plena fisonomía urbana. También podrás emprender un recorrido relajante por los 15 kilómetros del paseo que bordea el río Water of Leith o por los Jardines de la Calle Princesa. En tema de alojamiento Edimburgo es igualmente polifacética. Podrás hallar desde una típica pensión escocesa hasta un hotel de lujo, pasando por casas rurales y B&B que te mostrarán la faceta más natural de la ciudad.
