5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
A fantastic stay
My partner and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Blinkbonny House. The room was very cosy, clean and had everything we needed. The BnB is well situated and we could easily walk in to the city centre. Shaun and Elaine were very friendly. We mostly saw Shaun during our stay and he was very attentive and cooked up a delicious breakfast every morning. It certainly sets you up well for the day. We will definitely stay again when we return to Edinburgh!

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Warm welcome as we were the first guests for months. The room had everything we needed for our stay, a freshly cooked breakfast and the location meant that we could either walk into Edinburgh or catch a bus at the end of the road. There is an excellent shopping centre nearby for those day to day essentials. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and wish the owners a better 2021 than they've had in 2020.
