Affordable stopover close to Edinburgh city centre
A very nice b and b. Easy to find and the owners were nice enough to let us use their parking spot as we arrived quite late for check in. The room was spacious with plenty of room for 3 of us and lovely and warm. The room and en suite were very clean and had plenty of storage space for our stuff. Unfortunately we didn't partake of the breakfast so cannot say anything about that but the dining area looked very clean and tidy.The Townhouse is within easy walking distance for the centre of Edinburgh with some shops, pubs and eateries on the walk in to the city. We stayed 2 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would stay again.
