Historical Traveler Reviews Elmview Edinburgh

Elmview - hospitality at its best!


If you're staying in Edinburgh then this is the place to stay. From the excellent location, great restaurants nearby to the 5 star accommodation and breakfasts to die for! Nothing is too much trouble for the hosts Nici and Robin. Everything you need to make your stay in Edinburgh special.

(PS - don't forget to try the haggis!)

An outstanding experience!


We have stayed at Elmview 4 times in the last year. It is simply the best place to stay in Edinburgh- superb location, great rooms, mouthwatering breakfasts and Nici and Robin are wonderful hosts. Looking forward to staying again later this year.

Elmview IS Edinburgh


From the golfing meadow right outside, to the wonderful resturants within a short stroll, to the nearby majestry of Edinburgh Castle and Holyroodhouse, Elmview IS Edinburgh. With its amazing (and vast) breakfasts, its freindly and helpful hosts, and its numerous amenities, it provides a great place from which to launch a day's adventure, as well as a comfortable home to return to. Simply put, Elmview was a key part of a wonderful visit in this beautiful city.

A great break in Edinburgh


Perfect 5 Star b & b Excellent Location. Just 10 min stroll to City centre.Robin & Nicki Perfect hosts serving an excellent breakfast. Large Victorian Rooms but with all modern conviences. Sherry on arrival was a nice touch. A perfect place to stay.

One of the Best


Stayed for a long weekend, Was made to feel very welcome by Robin and Nicci, Rooms and Breakfast was all you could hope for and more. Had a great stay.

An ideal place to stay


Elmview certainly lives up to its 5* rating. We recently spent stayed there and enjoyed the excellent accommodation and food, the breakfast was superb. The room was extremely well presented, clean and very comfortable. This together with the personal attention from the hosts made a pleasant change from larger, sometimes soulless establishments. Highly recommended!

Best B&B in Scotland


Since 2001 I've been coming to Edinburg every year and always stayed at Elmview. I wouldn't change it for any other hotel or B&B since it is truely the best place to enjoy and. All rooms are arranged with such a love for detail and the hosts Robin and Nici will provide you with everything you could possibly need to feel comfortable, from golf clubs to VCR. The breakfast is excellent with a large choice of delicious specialities (incl. vegetarian breakfast dishes). Last but not least I'd like to mention that the hospitality and kindness of Nici and Robin makes it really a special place to stay. Thanks!

Brilliant Place to Stay


My experience at Elmview was a highlight of my recent trip to Scotland. To start they were able to provide a room for me at the last minute. Upon my arrival to their house (2 hours late), they gave me a breakfast. When I needed map, to find a paticular street, Robin gave me a whole book to use and helped me to locate it. Any question a guest had they had the answer or were quick to find the correct answer. Breakfast was excellent, Nici is an exceptional cook. They truly are a hidden treasure in Edinburgh, and I have reccomended them to all of my family and friends.

Lastly, Elmview's location is perfect, just a 5 minute taxi ride from Waverly Station and the rest of the downtown area, with a beautiful park across the street.

I've had the opportunity, being a marathoner, to stay in many hotels in the world and The Elmview, "Richard and Marny" are equal to, in my opinion, to the Caledonian and of course less expensive. The location, hospitality, rooms, breakfast are super. I'm truly grateful that Richard and Marny crossed my path. To stay at the Elmview is a great experience. Thanks,

The only place to stay in Edinburgh


Richard and Marny are among the nicest people I've met in Europe. I would not think of staying anywhere else in Edinburgh. The breakfast is fantastic and the rooms are very large. The bathrooms are marble and there are lots of extras like fridges and complimentary sherry. This is truly a class act. Talking about the Elmview makes me miss Edinburgh!

Like a Macklemore song I went thrift shopping. However, in Scotland it is called Charity Shopping. Over here the thrift shops use the donations they get to raise money for various non-profit causes, such as cancer research or Cardiac research. It is hard to spot them just driving past.

As I start to write this blog post, I realized we haven't been up to anything too much since we last wrote. We've been in Scotland for 2 weeks now and have had a fabulous, busy time driving to all the cities and exploring. When we reached Edinburgh we wanted/needed to stay for a few nights just to wind down and try to stay in one place for a longer period of time! We picked a hotel that was in the more ...

On our way to Edinburgh we stopped at two locations, one being the location of the angel of the North and then the other was Hadrians wall.

Once in edinburgh we checked into our hotel which was AMAZING! There was a massive shower with a dump style head plus the room was super cool. We did a walking tour of ...

... They are supposed to be haunted but there was only corny frights and a man in a mask at the end but the tour was full of history and facts about these vaults as they were forgotten about for many years. Thursday (16th) we headed to the Edinburgh Castle today! Safe to say it was amazing and we were so lucky with the weather again, beautiful sunshine! Amazing views from the castle and as the weather was quite clear you could see off into the hills or the sea! The castle is ...
