We had a lovey holiday in Scotland, made even better by Albyn house! The rooms was delightful and beautifully decorated. Very clean, bright, and traditional. The staff members were friendly and helpful - always willing to give suggestions about what to see/do and how to get there (thanks all). The breakfast was AMAZING - we are vegetarians and had a lot of options. Thanks Albyn house. We will be back!
Wir haben uns hier richtig wohl gefühlt. Das Personal war sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit, das Frühstück wurde frisch auf Bestellung zubereitet. Egal, mit welchem Problem man auf sie zukam, man wurde immer freundlich und aufmerksam geholfen. Die Zimmer waren sehr schön und liebevoll eingerichtet und das ganze Haus war "very British" eingerichtet. Klasse! Von hier aus konnte man zu Fuß in die Stadt gelangen und erleben. Wenn wir wieder nach Edinburgh fliegen, ist das Haus wieder unsere Wahl!
Dears, we loved everything. The cosiness, the food (yay), the Handwritten instructions, the ease and the house.. would definitely recommend to anyone. Wonderful place indeed. Thank you so much!!!

We needed to stay over for an early appointment in the area. The reviews were positive and my early contact to confirm parking was very helpful. We were only one night but rooms lovely, clean and spacious. Breakfast delicious and staff very helpful, would recommend a stay here.
We have been at the Albyn for the first time nine years ago... and every time we are in Edimburgh, we stay here!
Very good location, close to the city center, but in a quite area;
the rooms are very confortable and furnished with taste, worthy of a boutique hotel;
the breakfast is plenty of choice, also with options for vegetarians, vegans and coeliacs.
In these years Albyn has grown up, now has a young, helpful staff, and Lydie, the owner, is always wonderful!

Ok here is my view of this delightful property
Its tucked away in one of Edinburgh’s lovely streets
The welcome we received was lovely, the young was so very informative and friendly and a credit to her employers
The room we received had been given a boutique makeover and was spacious enough for two
The whole decor and layout of the guest house was very impressive
Breakfast was made fresh and plenty of choice
Staff again were very helpful and polite
We’ve been coming to Edinburgh for 25 years now and I would definitely recommend this accommodation to anyone wishing to stay
Great location and great quality, we will return
A fews years ago I worried that quality, small, family-run guest houses would be wiped out by the remorseless growth of corporate, dull, budget chain hotels. The traditional guest houses demise was compounded by shoddy management, lack of attention to detail and no passion. The only way the independents can compete with the chains is passion, individuality and that little extra. Albyn do this is style. Felt like arriving at an old friend's house that I had always slightly envied. Welcome was great, location perfect and the general ambience, decor and feel all first class. Well done, keep it up.
I stayed here for 2 nights and was very comfortable. The room was spotless. The staff and owner were very friendly and attentive. The breakfast was wonderful. There was loads to choose from and being a vegetarian it made a change to have real choice. I loved the homemade marmalade. I would recommend this B&B to anyone.
I can only agree with all the positive feedback written here, usually i have doubts while booking the B&B place since sometimes I do get not what I expected, but not this time - the Albyn Townhouse surprised me in everything, starting from the clean room ending in perfect breakfast and always friendly staff.
I will have some friends visiting Edinburgh after some time, I am sure which place I will recommend them to stay.
Wish you all guys the best and thanks for the pleasant experience!
Just returned home after the most wonderful 4 nights B & B at Albyn Townhouse. The place is amazing, absolutely spotless, and the rooms are big and welcoming. Breakfast was incredible, the choice out of this world, and everything cooked beautifully, and hot when it arrived at your table, waitresses very pleasant and clean. Sabine, was very helpful when we couldn't open our safe, and also gave us advice on what buses were close by, even putting an app for them onto my husbands phone. Lydie and David have created an oasis close to the centre of Edinburgh, and are very genial hosts. Star of the show, Crazy Betty, who we had a few minutes greeting with, who couldn't adore this beautiful Cocker Spaniel. Thankyou to all at Albyn Townhouse.
