Lovely weekend away
Lovely B&B within walking distance of centre. Room was clean and well decorated with usual tea & coffee facilities. Added on breakfast which was tasty and reasonably priced at £8 each.

This place did not disappoint! So comfortable, awesome location (a bit of a walk to the center but we welcomed the quiet streets that Albyn was in), and it was so cute. Breakfast was the cherry on top - they offered both cold and hot breakfasts, freshly made. All delicious and filling. Would recommend and will return again!

Stayed with husband and 2 sons for daughter’s graduation. I have stayed before and wanted to share it with them. No one was disappointed.

One of the best B&Bs I've stayed in!
A perfect little B&B not too far from the airport and not hard to find with Google Maps navigation. Located within a half-hour easy walk to the Old Town. So well-run by Lyndie and her family. Communication with Lyndie was superb. I arrived after hours and was able to check myself in with absolutely NO problem; this included letting myself (well, my car) in to through the locked gate of the small parking lot that abuts Albyn. Breakfast was delicious, complete and offered a wide selection for all kinds of palate, including vegans. My room was small but just enough for one person and very clean and comfortable. Will definitely return to stay at Albyn on my next visit to Edinburgh. Thank you, Lyndie and gang!
