The Experience

This gracious Georgian house is a 10-minute walk from Princes Street. Step into a warm, raspberry-painted hall that’s lined with art, then settle in a graceful dining room with decanters on the sideboard and a welcoming home-baked something.

Bedrooms are elegant and comfortable with whisky and wine on a tray and smart bathrooms. Wake for breakfast at a beautifully polished table – Angela makes a great Scottish breakfast with black pudding from one of Edinburgh’s best-known butchers (just around the corner) and eggs all different ways. She will also happily rustle up “posh yoghurt” with seasonal sliced fruits, porridge or muesli, croissants and toast along with plenty of coffee, newspapers and chat – she’s easy to talk to and loves having guests to stay.

A short walk gets you to everything: the tram to Murrayfield, art galleries in Princes Street Gardens, museums in Chambers Street, Multrees Walk and George Street’s independent shops. Waverley station is 10 minutes.

We had a perfect three day stay in this elegant Georgian townhouse. The house was beautiful and our host friendly and helpful. The dining room created a lovely atmosphere for the delicious breakfast. We would highly recommend 14 Hart Street as place to stay in Edinburgh.

Diana, Kendal

We have just returned from a 4 day visit to Edinburgh and 14 hart street was an ideal location for exploring the many attractions on offer. A short 10 min walk gets you to the royal mile and trans and buses are all close by on York street. After a day of sightseeing it was wonderful to return to the warmth and comfort of 14 hart street before enjoying the many restaurants and pubs close by. Breakfasts were excellent served in an elegant dining room and Angela’s wit and personality ensured an engaging conversation with the other guests .

Christine, Cork

An elegant, comfortable, interesting and beautiful place to stay. Spotless modern bathroom, and wonderfully quiet. Delicious generous breakfast. Angela is a delightful, friendly and helpful host. Very highly recommended.

Mary Clare, London

A beautiful house tucked away in a quiet street - a perfect place to stay. Location is within minutes walk of Princes Street and central Edinburgh but also very near Picardy Place for Trams and buses if you don’t like walking. House full of original Georgian features with great attention to detail. Our room had lots of character and a beautiful modern bathroom. Breakfast was flexibly timed and delicious ranging from fresh fruit to fully cooked. Angela was a lovely, caring, generous host and, if you don’t know Edinburgh, a fount of good advice on what to do and see.

Duncan, Reading

Lovely and charming house in quiet residential street. Central location. Beautiful breakfasts. Friendly helpful host. Comfortable bedroom. I would stay there again.

Suzanne, London

We had a wonderful stay at 14 Hart Street. It was the nicest, and most comfortable (not to mention cost-effective and elegant) stay that we had on our trip to Scotland. Lovely quiet and comfortable rooms, delicious hot breakfast and expert advice for the best local pubs! Compared to the 'special hotels' we booked via other apps, this one was the best by far! Love Sawdays.

Deborah, Vancouver

What a find, an absolute gem of a place to stay. Angela is the perfect host, friendly, knowledgeable and with a glorious home. Rooms are generous, bathrooms modern and very clean. It is in a great location with plenty of local good quality restaurants to choose from - just ask Angela for recommendations. Breakfast is a treat, so much choice including fresh fruit and croissant and a delicious cooked to order breakfast, with local bacon and sausages. We loved our three night stay and won't hesitate to return.

Kate, Cuddington

We stayed for three nights last week whilst visiting The Fringe and just wanted to pass on our recommendation for such excellent accommodation. Angela could not have been a more welcoming and helpful host; the breakfast was wonderful, the room spotless (with fresh towels provided each day and a very welcoming complimentary decanter of whisky and bottle of wine) and the location is ideal for visiting the heart of Edinburgh.

Mike & Tracey, Nottinghamshire

Wonderful B&B. The room was very nicely decorated and very clean. The breakfast was delicious! The welcome by Angela was very warm and welcoming. Although the B&B is not far from busy places, it was very quiet and peaceful. Highly recommended!

Peggy, Lommel

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this beautifully decorated Georgian home. Great location on a quiet residential street within easy walking distance to the Royal Mile and many other sights. Delicious breakfast served in an elegant dining room. Tastefully furnished room with a spacious, modern bathroom. Very friendly and welcoming host (Angela) who gave excellent restaurant recommendations. We hope to visit again.

Astrid, Germany

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at 14 Hart Street. The decor is elegant and refined. We wish we had time to study the art that covers much of the wall space, but of course we were there to see Edinburgh! The location is fabulous. The street is quiet, but around the corner there are loads of good options for food and drink. We walked everywhere from 14 Hart! The excellent National Portrait Gallery is a short walk, along with Calton Hill, Holyrood Palace, and Holyrood Park. But back to 14 Hart. The breakfasts were excellent, and the decanter of whisky is a nice touch. Angela is fabulous!

Gary, Atlanta

We had a delightful stay in June. Our host Angela was kind and well informed and had most interesting stories to share. Breakfast was delicious. Many attractions like the Royal Mile, George Street and Calton Hill were in easy walking distance.

Marion, Werther, Germany

We had an incredible stay! Not only were our accommodations comfortable and well furnished, but the entire space was so unique. I felt like I was stepping back in time without losing any modern day comforts. We had so much fun and hope to stay again next time we visit Edinburgh!

Amy, Chantilly, Virginia USA

We had an amazing stay at 14 Hart Street over the Easter Bank Holiday weekend! We felt special the moment we arrived and were shown to our lovely large luxurious room and felt this way every morning when having breakfast on a beautifully layed out table. The location was perfect making you feel like you are in the center of town but on a super quiet street at the same time and was the perfect base for our city exploration! Our host Angela was delightful ! She really elevated our stay providing us with great advise for where to eat as well as insider tips

Omar, London

This is a true gem of a place with a wonderful Newtown Georgian charm. The breakfasts were delicious and Angela most helpful and kind. The immediate area is brimming with good eateries. It comes highly recommended for exploring my favourite city.

Julian, Blandford Forum

5* accommodation. A wonderful host. Superb location. A wonderful time. Will definitely return.

Linda, Tring

Excellent location for city centre and the tram from the Airport. Catered for every need even had a lovely Irish coffee with the decanter of Whiskey in our room. Beautiful Georgian house lovingly cared for. Fantastic modern bathroom with loads of hot water and a great shower and toiletries. Coffee and tea facilities and the shortbread really nice. Lovely selection for breakfast including a choice of freshly cooked items served in a beautiful dining room.Angela our host was so friendly and welcoming and gave good recommendations in the area. Would highly recommend.

Martina, Craigavon

What a truly, lovely place to stay in Edinburgh! Perfectly situated, this wonderful home is so much better than any impersonal hotel. Filled with antiques and charm, not to mention fabulous Scottish hospitality, it’s as if you’ve found a secluded country house in the heart of the city centre. And you have the key! We cannot recommend 14 Hart Street, Edinburgh more highly. Wonderful and thoughtful touch’s in bedroom, unlimited hot water meant that returning to such a cosy room after the brisk & bracing weather was delightful. Delicious breakfasts over the papers were a perfect start to the day!

Carolyn, Scotland

Excellent location. Very quiet room with a comfortable bed and great breakfast in the morning. Angela made us very welcome. Would definitely recommend 14 Hart Street.

Carola, Highland

Absolutely perfect stay. A gorgeous room and delicious breakfast - we hope to come again.

The neighbourhood

Hart Street is part of a small, well-preserved and peaceful Georgian area a short walk from the East End of Princes Street. There are many outstanding restaurants nearby, and it’s in easy striking distance of the North Bridge - the link between the New Town and the Old Town - and all the main attractions of this wonderful city: the castle, the Royal Mile, Holyrood Palace, art galleries and more. A direct bus or tram gets you to Murrayfield for international sporting fixtures and concerts in around 20 minutes. The annual Tattoo and Fringe festivals are held every August.

Local points of interest from Angela Wilson

  • 14 Hart Street lies at the centre of Edinburgh - within the New Town and a short distance from the North Bridge and Princes Street.
  • The great museums, galleries and historic buildings of the city can be reached easily and happily on foot, and we are an ideal base for the Edinburgh Festival and international sporting events.


Angela Wilson

Angela knows the history and present-day life of Edinburgh well and is a ready and willing source of advice. Ask her almost anything from bus tickets and shopping to worthwhile places to visit. She and her late husband James taught at a local prep school for many years (History for James and Latin and Greek for Angela). They fell into doing B&B many years ago when a parent at school sent them some Portuguese guests as she’d double booked. Angela still very much enjoys introducing people to this unique city. She has three grandsons, so guests sometimes have to navigate their way around the odd toy or cricket bat as they make their way to the front door!
