Superb BnB, Great Neighborhood
Ashdene House was ideal! Absolutely spotless, cozy, nicely furnished, great location in the Grange - about a 20 minute walk to Old Town center. We were there for Fringe and it was good to be away from the bustle. Terrific breakfast with many options. And Caroline was a superb hostess and very accommodating.

Rey Noce
Very comfortable with a friendly hostess. A very nice breakfast. In room dean, coffee and cocoa. Extra seating in room as well as a small study down stairs. A bit outside of downtown but very easy access with bus pass. Close to the Meadows, large park.
