Arrived yesterday in Edinburgh. Staying at lovely B&B. Today we walked the Princess street gardens and Edinburgh Castle. The Castle is quite impressive, towering over the city....
... city, that's for sure. We've eaten across the road each night at the Ocean Terminal. There's mainly pizza/pasta places but we've eaten at the home made burger place, the ocean kitchen and wagamama. All delicious. We figured that as we're going to Italy, we'd wait to eat pasta and pizza there. We bought loads of sweets, etc to take home from M&S such as Percy Pigs and Dolly Mixture. ...
... in the UK. Inside the crown room the centre pieces; crown, sceptre and sword and stone of destiny as well as the history of their origins and meanings. Interestingly the Crown Jewels went into storage for more than 100 years as they were no longer needed and unlike most things when the case was reopened everything was as it was. Leaving the castle and seeing the set up for the Military Tattoo we were kicking ourselves we hadn't bought tickets as it ...
... our 'local', Whistle Binkies! They had a rock cover band on, who were playing some pretty cool tunes, so we had some drinks there, and had a bit of a dance. The Swiss guys didn't stick around long, cos they were flying out early, but we stayed on and watched the bands set, and had a few more drinks. When they finished, we went up the road to a little convenience shop, and bought some pasties and other hot food, then went back to the hostel and stumbled up to bed! It was a really fun ...
... lock behind. Our flatmates were away until New Years Eve and our property manages office was shut until the morning, this meant we needed to either break in or find somewhere to sleep for the night. We opted for the latter - Kate and Caleb came to rescue. We spent the night bunking on their floor.
After finishing work on Friday we headed to Kings Cross to catch our 6pm train to Edinburgh. When Belinda arrived at the ...

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.

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!
