The Albyn Townhouse is a great place to stay.
The location is excellent, the rooms are very clean and comfortable, and Lydie is a wonderfully attentive and delightful host.
I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for somewhere to stay in Edinburgh.
The room was lovely, in a beautiful well presented town house, large, airy, spacious, beautiful decor, spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The facilities - teas, coffees and fresh milk every day - were good quality, Lydie was extremely welcoming and helpful and the location was ideal, central with parking whilst being lovely and quiet.
Lydie was a wonderful host. The room was immaculate, the accommodations were very comfortable and Lydie was a wealth of information. This was the start of a wonderful trip to see our daughter Claire, who is studying in Scotland.
We loved our stay at the Albyn Townhouse. Lydie is a wonderful warm and welcoming host. The townhouse is beautifully decorated and the room was full of thoughtful little touches. It’s in a brilliant part of Edinburgh that we probably wouldn’t have discovered without our stay here. Would highly recommend - would love to visit again 🙂
The Albyn Townhouse is in a quiet, convenient and interesting part of Edinburgh. A short stroll takes you to a wonderful choice of shops and restaurants. We particularly enjoyed breakfast at the Montpelier. Lydie ensures that you feel part of the family and takes the trouble to get to know her guests personally. We were happy in our room with its coffee machine, comfy bed and superb view over the Edinburgh rooftops.
Albyn Townhouse was the perfect accommodation for my needs. Having 3 nights as a solo traveller I immediately felt comfortable and welcome. Calm, homely and very clean. I particularly appreciated the smaller details like fresh milk and breakfast tray brought to your room if requested. Lydie is friendly and helpful.
Looking forward to returning one day.
We spent a most enjoyable 2 nights. It was my ‘big’ birthday and my husband organised a morning mimosa which was given to us to the sound of happy birthday being sung by the owner and her three young children. We have in fact been back many times and it is never less than immaculate and ‘boutique—y” with lovely decor and extremely comfortable beds. The establishment is now more reasonable than ever because it no longer makes breakfasts; these can be supplied from outside and there are many cafés close by. The owner also has an adorable and very friendly blue/roan Cocker spaniel called Betty, who is allowed out to sniff the guests. We will go back again and again.
Lydie has created the perfect ambience in the perfect location for anyone wanting to spend time in this delightful part of Edinburgh. Her eye to detail meant that we were able to relax in spite of a hectic schedule. Lydie makes you feel very welcome - we will be back.
Anyone who steps into Lydie's home is immediately treated like an old friend. She offers all the warmth, home comforts and friendliness one could hope for on a visit to the beautiful city of Edinburgh. Lydie's home is well located - close enough to walk (or bus) to the bustle of the Royal Mile but also within a quiet area with restaurants and shops aplenty. We highly recommend staying and look forward to a return ourselves!
Lovely house, charming host and a very warm welcome. Comfortable, very clean and very quiet. We will definitely stay again and hopefully try the breakfast in bed!
