Great stay at Glen Almond.
Was great. Too bad it was only for a night. Comfortable bed, clean bathroom. Breakfast was very good. The busses drop off literally a few yards from the front gate. Busses to town are just up the road. Great location. Nice and friendly owners as well. Will stay there any time I am in Edinburgh.

Edinburgh Bed and Breakfast
The husband and wife who operate Glenalmond House were gracious and welcoming. Parking is right out front, which is convenient. We had a room that opened on to a patio, which was very pleasant. Breakfasts were great! It is twenty minute walk up to restaurants and book store and such, another twenty minutes across the downtown area. Or, they are right on the bus line. For $5 you can get an all day pass.

Just Right
I had a very nice stay at Glenalmond House. The location is very close to the City Center with easy access to public transportation. The B&B was very nice and clean. The bed was comfortable and the food was very good with a nice UK breakfast selection. Jimmy and Fiona were very nice and gave me good advice on restaurants. I felt that this was a good value given the higher prices of hotels near where I wanted to stay. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to friends and family.

Perfect location with free parking and only 20mins walk to the high street and old town, with local bars and restaurants on the way. The room and service was excellent,such a helpful lovely couple who run the hotel. The breakfast was amazing, you leave your order the night before and everything is freshly made. The room was large clean and a very comfortable 4poster bed.
