This was our fourth guest house/B&B after a week traveling scotland and Albyn is by far the best; you could see the hand of the owners in every detail.
Wonderful experience for us, will recommend 110%!! Do not hesitate if having the oportunity to visit.
We stayed 6 nights in late September and the Albyn B&B was perfect in so many ways. The location is very convenient to local restaurants and bus transport to just about anywhere you want to visit in Edinburgh (and beyond via tour companies). The breakfasts were tasty and wholesome with plenty of choices and very good service. Our room had a great view: the bed very comfortable and the room quiet. Plenty of hot water for showering. Nice touch with shortbread snacks and coffee left by room service. All this only exceeded by our hostess, Lydie, with her vivacious personality was very helpful and available whenever we had questions. 5 stars well earned!
Albyn Townhouse is a delight.
Lydie was there on our arrival to greet us, she is bubbly and helpful with directions and where to eat etc.
The decor of the townhouse is amazing and so comfortable, as expected breakfast was excellent too!
I would whole heartily recommend Albyn Townhouse to anyone.
super B&B-Unterkunft in Edinburgh mit einmaliger Sicht über den Dächern von Edinburgh, schick und doch familiär eingerichtet, nett, kompetent und hilfsbereit die Chefin und das Personal, Buchung immer wieder beim nächsten Edinburgh-Besuch, sehr zu empfehlen
From the moment we booked right up to leaving, our experience was wonderful. Lydie welcomed us immediately via email, asking any questions we had with what was clearly a smile and sense of humour. Meeting Lydie was no exception to this either. She was a delight; friendly, funny, chatty and a wealth of knowledge for the sights and sounds of Edinburgh. We arrived at the very same time Lydie and David had just been sent the Gold award for tourist board Scotland. We enjoyed sharing the experience 🙂 The accommodation is simply stunning with so many personal touches. The bed was super comfy and we slept soundly both nights. The breakfasts were also delicious. My boyfriend enjoyed his first visit to Scotland and can't stop raving about the Albyn Townhouse as well as the city. Our only regret is not staying longer than 2 nights. Thank you so much 🙂 🙂 Lesley & Athanasios
This B&B is at the end of a short dead-end street so it makes this particular location nice and quiet, but still walking distance to some fantastic restaurants. Each room is different and has it's own charm, history and character. An absolute delight. Liddi (sp), her husband and children make you truly feel like you are in a very loving home. Try the haggis from their breakfast menu, yes, it is good! Breakfast was wonderful (Note to vegans... she has you covered) and the beds are comfortable. Plenty of room to relax in our room with sofa and coffee table and kin-size bed. Loved the black and white updated bathroom in our room. I would return because it is such a great place, but mostly because of Liddi's personality.
Stayed here for onenight and wish it was for longer. Our room was immaculate and with absolutely everything we needed. The view was amazing castle and sea.
The owners live on site and provided us with all the local information we needed. Breakfast was great. Would reccommded and hope to be back in the near future.
Lovely stay in Edinburgh. Beautiful breakfast and proprietor Lydie was delightful. Easy to reach the sights.
We've stayed for two nights and It was wanderful. The place, the room, the food, Lydie made us feel welcome and at home. Thank you very much! Adília and Gustavo
Wonderful welcome when we arrived. It felt like we were staying in white stuff with the joyful decorations. Lovely breakfast. The town centre is a walkable distance away.
