Fabulous, tranquil, luxury bed,12 mins from city,
Wonderful stay in this truly unique house with lovely gardens. The most comfortable bed ever! Luxury bed linens and towels. Beautiful views in peaceful, mature area in a discerning upmarket end of Edinburgh. A 12 minute drive from the city centre with its own free car park, and on the main bus route to town. Excellent breakfast served in the magnificent dining room. Host was absolutely charming and could not do enough to make my stay perfect! Highly recommended 5 STARS!!

Best private hotel I’ve been to in many year.
You don’t often come across a privately owned Georgian hotel steeped in antiquity and in such wonderful condition. You don’t come across people like David Martin very often either. My one night stay was very enjoyable and the breakfast was excellent. I can’t recommend Spylaw House Hotel strongly enough. Great place and fantastic service.

Great place to stay, super breakfast
Superb place to stay if you want to be out of the town and somewhere quiet tobbe able to get some sleep at night. Easy to find, good safe parking and a host who really wants to make sure you have been welcomed and looked after during your stay. My room ( Robert) was very well apportioned with everything I needed, to the critical people out there some detailed cleaning to bathroom extractor and upgrade to bath panel may be needed, but for me it was no issue. The breakfast was excellent and probably one of the best from a b&b that I have had in ages ( and I use them a lot for overnight stays when working). I would definitely stay here again if I needed something in or near Edinburgh.

Wonderful welcoming place to stay.
This was a wonderful place to stay. Bus stop just down the way and a cute little village within walking distance. Our host David is what made it such a pleasure. Our breakfasts were wonderful and conversation with the other guest made us feel like we were home.

A B&B with character
Located in a charming area, with great opportunities for exploring and walks. We were provided with a hand drawn sketch of the immediate area to facilitate getting around on foot: Areas of interest, places to eat, etc. Our host arranged for our taxi to take us on to our next destination, letting us know about booking 'fixed price' fares (vs meter fares). Bedding was very comfortable, as was the room (TV provided no reception). The host was friendly, welcoming, and helpful. Breakfast choices are provided.

It was only a night before leaving from Edinburgh Airport, so there were no real tourist activities. David did, however, give me quite detailed directions to the airport, which were much appreciated the next morning. The room was great--spacious, comfortable, etc. I really enjoyed it!
