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.
A view of the oldest golf course in Edinburgh.
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!

... I took a lot of pictures, because I was pretty sure Dad wouldn't believe we had made it to the top. But we did, and so did a dad with two small children. They made it up alright, but practically rolled back down the mountain from exhaustion.
Laura and I had dinner that night at the Advocate, met a very nice Australian woman on holiday, and played a few games of cribbage back at the hostel.

... the fact that, despite our best efforts, we had over-packed. We decided then and there to ship some of our stuff home from Edinburgh. We were all pleasantly surprised when we arrived at our two bedroom, two bath apartment. It was modern, comfortable and elegant, and was located right next to Holyrood Park, which would come in handy for our morning runs. We unpacked, settled in, walked around the corner to buy a few groceries, and found a nice ...
... br> When the lift arrived it was quite packed with other passengers but I and my two boxes managed to squeeze in. Everyone else got out at car deck 5 and I was the only one for deck 3!!
Deck 3 was simply full of tightly parked trucks and just getting along to my bike with the boxes was a nightmare. All I can say is it's a good job I’m thin otherwise I would have never got along between the trucks. As for the top box, well, that was another case. With it being rather ...
After spending a beautiful week in the heart of London, one of the UK's most beautiful cities, I jetted away for a change of pace to another distinctive and beautiful UK city- Edinburgh Scotland!! Excited to see more of this beautiful country i'd only heard wonderful things about, I was ready to delve into the culture, the scenery, and yes, the culinary specialties.
I arrived in Edinburgh before my tour group so I had a chance to explore the city on my ...
When one thinks of Scotland,
it is usually the Highlands that most come to mind. They are beautiful. I've been three times now on this trip –
each trip to a different area and they have never failed to impress. The first trip early in my time here was to
the Cairngorms in the Central Highlands.
This route takes you through Stirling, the Gateway to ...
