    Historical Traveler Reviews The Beverley Edinburgh

    Wonderful place to stay in Edinburgh

    from

    My wife, 14 year old daughter and I stayed 2 nights at the Beverley early August 2006. We relied on TripAdvisor ratings and found the high ratings to be 100% true. It is located on a quiet, beautiful street with very easy access to bus transportation downtown. Breakfast was wonderful and the room was comfortable and tastefully decorated. The hosts were friendly and helpful, including advice on seeing the sights of Edinburgh.

    Next time, we will spend more time in Edinbugh and will definitely return to the Beverley for our stay.

    The Beverely was great!

    from

    There were three of us staying here for our July trip. The triple room (one single and one double bed) was spacious and had a great attached bathroom. The towels were big and fluffy, a real plus. Judy was the always gracious host that shared a wealth of information with us. We had a car to use, but ended up leaving it parked the entire stay, using the easily accessed bus instead. Overall great place to stay, I would definitely stay here again.

    I highly recommend it!

    from

    My sister and I stayed at The Beverley while visiting my neice who was on exchange at the Kilgraston School near Perth. Hutch and Judy are the most gracious hosts and their home is lovely. Neither of us had stayed at a B & B before but The Beverley came highly recommened from friends who had stayed there a few years ago. We were not disappointed! The rooms were great, very roomy and Hutch and Judy were so accommodating to our needs, 2 Americans who had not ventured through Scotland before! The breakfasts were outstanding and certainly enough to keep us energized for the entire day! The cost of the rooms was extremely reasonable and well worth it.

    The bus was a perfect way to get around town and we walked home from each of our locations--a great way to see the city and get in some exercise. They helped us arrange for a car and driver and gave excellent recommendations for hot spots and restaurants. I would recommend The Beverley to anyone and certainly will stay there again.

    Thank you, Hutch and Judy!

    Loved the Beverley

    from

    Stayed two nights at The Beverley Guest House and found the accomodations were excellent; clean, well kept, well decorated and Judy and Hutch were both extremely friendly and helpful.

    They are very close to all the sites of Edinburgh - The Royal Mile, Princes Street, the Zoo!! A quick walk to local transportation, if that is what you choose and a five minute drive if you have your own transportation.

    The old Victorian home is beautiful and the neighbourhood is quiet and obviously well kept -beautiful gardens all down the street and respectfully friendly neighbours.

    Would highly recommend a stay at The Beverley. Their website is excellent as well to give a good overview of both the facilities and the owners.- http://www.thebeverley.com/

    An Excellant B&B

    from

    The Beverly is about an 8 minute bus ride from the heart of Edinburgh in a nice, safe (i'm a single female) residentaly part of Edinburgh. it is about a 2 minute walk from the bustops (5 minutes from the Airlink busstop); be warned it's a nice sloping hill that can be a little tiring if your a little too "thick" and out of shape but SO WELL WORTH IT!! the price was 45 pounds per night for a lovely room with a double bed, hot shower with excellant pressure. i would highly recommend this B&B, the staff and owners were extremely pleasant and socaible; the breakfasts yummy! I will stay here again.

    Top Class B&B

    from

    I stayed at The Beverley for five nights in April 2006. I found it to be a truly excellent b&b which exceeded expectations given it's price (35 pounds per night for a single room).

    The single room I stayed in was, as expected, fairly small, but certainly not uncomfortably so and nothing like as small as single hotel rooms tend to be, especially in this price range.

    The hosts were unfailingly friendly and helpful, and the room and house in general were immaculately clean and tidy. Breakfast was always superbly cooked, and large enough that lunch was not required!

    The house itself is in a very attractive, tree lined avenue and while close to the city is very quiet of a night. It is two minutes walk to a bus stop which is serviced by buses to and from the city centre very frequently - never waited more than ten minutes for a bus, usually less than five. There is also a pub on the corner (Murrayfield Bar) which does great meals.

    If you have not been to Edinburgh before, it is a stunningly beautiful and interesting city, and The Beverley is a great place to stay - I definitely hope to be back.

    Enjoyed The Beverly

    from

    The Beverly's map did not give a true indication of how far it was from Haymarket by foot, but it is just off the bus route. The rooms are adequate but the climb up three flights was not always easy. They did provide free internet access for e-mail & that is a real plus when traveling. They also provided information when asked and a good breakfast cooked to order.

    Lovely hotel

    from

    We stayed at The Beverly when we went to the tattoo, found it to be very nice, very organised, clean and everyone was very helpful. The breakfast was good plenty to eat and cooked perfectly.

    If we went to Edinburgh again would definately book The Beverly again, was only a mile from the centre and was well placed for the airport, and buses and city centre. We walked most of time found it very convenient.

    The millitary tottoo at the castle was fantastic, as was the bus tours. We can also recommend "Jimmy Chungs Chinese buffet bar" on the Waverly bridge was brillient.

    The Beverly made our stay just perfect.

    Excellent B&B in Edinburgh!

    from

    The Beverly, located at 40 Murrayfield Avenue in Edinburgh (only a 10 minute bus ride from Princes Street-the main street for meeting tour buses and going to the Information Center) was beautifully decorated, extremely clean, reasonably priced, and provided a hot and delicious, full breakfast. Judy Hutchison went above and beyond her position to assist with site-seeing, helping to set up tours, and even went so far as to get a little tray of snacks together for my son when we arrived at 11:00 p.m. and he was hungry! The bus stop is about a 2-3 minute walk from the Beverly and was very easy to ride. Given the opportunity, I would stay here again without a thought! I have their phone number but don't know how to dial it from any other country except Germany. The number is: 0131-337-1128

    The Beverley - for the 2nd time

    from

    I stayed at The Beverley in August 2001 for 7 nights during the famous Edinburgh International Festival. I loved it so much I just returned for 2 nights in June 2005. And I intend to go back again.

    The Hutchison's (Hutch, Judy and their two lads) excellent B&B is close to the Murrayfield stadium, and is within 5 minutes by bus (the award-winning Lothian Bus' no. 12 and 26) to Princes Street and Waverley Rail Station/St. Andrew's Sq. bus station in the city centre, or a brisk 20 minute walk which is also very pleasant. The Scottish Cooked Breakfast every day, supplemented by cereals, fruit, yoghurt and other little treats, can keep one going until supper, and will fuel you sufficiently to climb Arthur's Seat. The rooms are comfortable and are en-suite (read: bathroom/WC) equipped with a strong shower.

    Edinburgh, the old city is a World Heritage Site, and Judy can tell you the best way to explore it comprehensively. Do not set out without asking what the best way to proceed is. Be sure to visit the website at ------ with its impressive intro and information about the area ... this was my introduction to the city, and I was hooked.

    The service is truly extraordinary. I was found and given a ticket for the hugely entertaining Military Tattoo (in front of Edinburgh Castle - this ends with the moving performance by a lone piper) at the very last moment. A young man who accidently locked himself in the room was rescued by a Hutchison boy using a ladder....

    I hope you have as good a time as I did...and will have again.

We walked right to the top passing the Esplanade, the Argyle Battery, the Governor's House, St. Margaret's Chapel, to the Crown Courtyard at the top. On one side of the courtyard was the Palace in which Mary Queen of Scots gave birth to ...

    Had breakfast in a place we'd found that gave the homeless youth a chance to learn a trade. Might as well support a group that is helping others. There isn't a lot of begging in Edinburgh but there seems to be regular people in regular places.

    Got to the HOHO bus stop and then discovered that the first bus only started at 9,30am. We had wanted to be at ...

    ... city. It was rewarding and beautiful. I ran around the base of it a couple days later which was also really fun to see the city that way and stick it to the cold weather by working up a sweat. I also had a bit of a moment one night when I happened to be in the right place at the right time and walked into the middle of a marketing team photo shoot for Hogmanay the festival I'd come all the way here for. Essentially they lit on fire a huge "2014" that would also ...

    ... The new town is built of a creamy honey coloured sandstone which has become blackened by all the coal burnt in the past for fires. Some buildings have been cleaned but now there is a problem with an algae forming on the cleaned stone so that the buildings appear green. Apparently the blackened stone is protected from the weather. We arrive at our Hotel, the Crowne Plaza Roxburghe. What a surprise as my Scottish side of the ...

    ... say the least. It is built on top of a massive volcanic formation with forbidding walls that tower over the city. Portions of the castle are as old as the 12th century, which is hard to imagine given that most of the buildings we see on a daily basis are at most 200 years old. The entire castle is really an amazing feat of strategy and engineering that also appeals to our interest in all things martial and medieval. Kings and queens, knights and swords, loyalty and treachery... what's ...
