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!

... scheme for unemployed workers who were considered political radicals. It was steep and gravelly with no railing. We trudged slowly up the steep path stopping every 100 meters to catch our breath. Standing and scooping up air we saw a young man sprinting towards us, taking seconds that took us minutes. We said hello as he went running by us and out of sight. As we climbed higher the wind grew wilder and ...

Everyone left raving about it.
We had an interesting performance as someone changed the levels in the booth and both our sound and lights had issues. The Cast did a nice job adjusting to too much sound, too little sound, too bright, too dark.

This morning we were able to have a bit later start of the day, sleeping in until 830. Once we got moving Erin and I started the day with a tour of Mary King's Close. This is an area along the royal mile that used to consist of many buildings very close together and very tall, with hundreds of people living in them (due to the constricting city wall the city could only grow up, not out). ...
... with them before Mel and Rich leave Edinburgh. Next was the Edinburgh Castle which we had pre-booked tickets for. It was Easter Sunday and quite busy but we got a free guided tour and an audio guide to help us understand more about the castle. It stands tall in the city on the peak of an extinct volcano. We saw many parts of the castle including the royal residence, prison and army barracks which it was mostly recently used for. In the afternoon we had worked up and ...

While Glasgow seemed comparatively "lived in" and is beginning to modernize it's buildings, Edinburgh effortlessly remains a period piece; a living history. We were told to follow an old road up a steep and endless hill until we reached the castle. Eventually, the broad road narrowed into a much more narrow street which stopped abruptly at the peak of the hill. We reached the top and gazed our eyes ...
