A friendly, happy place. Easy to walk or go by bus to Edinburgh central and very near Leith waterfront too.

Perfect accomodation, home from home.
Edna is a fabulous host, lovely, friendly place to stay, easy parking, access to great pubs, restaurants and the city. Home from home, and a brilliant breakfast. Will always use Pillars House when visiting Endinburgh in the future.
Jane, gb2 night trip with friends
Exceptional 10.0
Stayed for three days during the Fringe. Was given great local information which helped no end. Breakfast was first rate - cooked fresh to order. Edna is a first rate host and will definitely be returning

Don't be a tourist! See Edinburgh like a Scot.
Edna and Greg made us feel like we were being welcomed home, to a family reunion. The tub/shower is a bit high, great for a bath, not so great for bad knees. Also, no elevator. Still, next time I stay in Edinburgh, I will stay here again because of the people working here.

Great breakfast and welcoming host/staff
Had a brilliant stay for a couple of nights. Breakfast was excellent as always. Third visit to The Pillars and we find it an easy and relaxing place to stay. Great advice given re transport links!
