Lovely stay in Portebello, right outside Edinburgh Scotl

4.80/5.0
MY step-mom and I liked being out of city center and in a guest house/b and b setting. The bus into the city was very convenient. WE enjoyed the restaurant suggestions from Angela. SHE was most accommodating and heppful. IT was a very comfortable room to come back to after a busy day. WE felt very safe in the area, walking from bus stop close by to the guesthouse.
The en suite bath was a little small, but very functional.

4.40/5.0
Owners Willy and Angela were lovely. Their suggestions for activities were spot on. We did everything they suggested and had a great time. 5 minute walk to the promenade and beach with great food at Espys pub. Great location in Portabello, buses at door to Edinburgh, 24 hours.
Street parking was a bit tight, but not a real issue.

Fantastische Unterkunft!

5.00/5.0
Das Gastgeber-Ehepaar war großartig! Sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Das Guesthouse ist sehr schön eingerichtet: gemütlich und geschmackvoll. Portobello ist etwas ab vom Schuss und man braucht tatsächlich bis zu 40 min mit dem Bus in die Stadt (je nach Uhrzeit und Verkehr), aber der Blick vom Strand entschädigt für alles. Wenn ich das Geld hätte, würde ich dieses unglaublich schöne Haus kaufen. :-) Ich glaube das sagt alles.

4.60/5.0
We had a lovely stay. The owners are very kind and helpful, we'd enjoyed the perfect English breakfast, excellent coffee - just the way we like it ! Thank you very much :)
The only downside was the mattress - wasn't very comfortable for us, but could be perfect for those who like this kind of mattresses.

Prima locatie voor een bezoek aan Edinburgh

4.40/5.0
Mooi oud landhuis met smaakvol ingerichte kamers met een Queen size bed. Vriendelijke ontvangst door de eigenaars van de B&B. Heerlijk Schots ontbijt met veel mogelijkheden. Bushalte voor lijn 26, rechtstreeks naar Edinburgh voor de deur. Bus rijdt om de 10 minuten, 24 uur per dag.
Deze uitstekende B&B ligt niet zo gunstig ten opzichte van het vliegveld. Twee bussen, reistijd één uur. De verbinding naar het centrum van Edinburgh is echter prima, 15-20 minuten met de bus.

Very welcoming and friendly owners. Great place to stay, near the beach and yet with easy access to the city center by bus. Some of us had to leave quite early to the airport and early breakfast was provided.
We wished we could have stayed longer

Unvergesslicher Kurzurlaub in Schottland

5.00/5.0
Alles war einfach perfekt. Vom ersten Moment an haben wir uns wohl gefühlt, die Inhaberin war überaus freundlich und hilfsbereit, hat uns Ausflugsziele empfohlen, uns mit einem Tee begrüßt und war sehr sympathisch. Neben einem ausgesprochen geschmackvoll eingerichteten Zimmer genossen wir super bequeme Betten, ein großzügiges, individuelles Frühstück, WLAN, eine super schöne Atmosphäre und eine hohe Professionalität seitens der Gastgeber. Wir werden definitiv dieses Haus weiterempfehlen und sehr gerne auch wieder kommen! Einer unserer besten Aufenthalte. Erwähnenswert ist auch noch die gute Lage, 5 Minuten zum Strand und 2 Minuten zu den Bushaltestellen, von denen alle 6-8 Minuten Busse nach Edinburgh fahren und das zu absolut günstigen Tagesticket Preisen. :-)
Es gab überhaupt gar nichts, was uns nicht gefallen hat.

Ett underbart ställe med perfekt närhet till stranden och otroligt gästvänlig ägare med familj. Fin inredning och rent. Mycket god och vällagad frukost.
Sängen, lite hård och utan bäddmadrass.
