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.
