Rooms sleep 2


A cantilevered staircase in walnut and mahogany, a soaring hand-painted cupola, and a classic Georgian townhouse five minutes from Princes Street. Rooms are large and immaculate, sprinkled with paintings and decorative things from travels to far-flung places, while bedrooms are comfortable, traditional and well-stocked with books and radio (and a useful Z-bed). Bag the south-facing double with its Art Deco bathroom and garden views. Naomi is relaxed and happy to chat to you about the local music and art scene, or to leave you in peace. An interesting and hospitable place to unwind, and breakfasts are delicious.

A quiet retreat from the hubbub of the festival to the most exclusive area of Georgian Edinburgh. Sitting at a long table for breakfast (everything but starting with freshly squeezed orange juice and fresh fruit salad) Naomi listened carefully to our comments on Edinburgh Festival events and helped us chose others. Having a culturally aware hostess who is "in the know" about what is going on around was a priceless benefit. We'll be back.

This was just our sort of place. Extremely comfortable and individualistic. We appreciated the artwork and books. We had a lovely room at the back looking out over New Town gardens. Breakfasts were very good and our hosts could not have been more welcoming. The area is very interesting and all parts of the city can be easily accessed by foot. It might not suit someone who likes minimalism and de luxe bathrooms, but for us it was a home from home and our ideal for a temporary stay.

My boyfriend and I had a thoroughly great time here. Naomi was welcoming and very accommodating, and made us feel at home immediately. They have a beautiful home - and the breakfast really is delicious! I've already recommended it to friends.

Henrietta, London

Naomi, the owner, was very welcoming and helpful with ideas on what to do, where to eat and drink and with directions. Her beautiful home has many interesting paintings and artefacts. It is very comfortable and ideally located, a few minutes walk away from the 'biz' of Stockbridge with its individual shops, restaurants, bars and a high quality Sunday morning street market. It’s a 15 minute walk to Princes Street. Breakfast was lovely with fruit, porridge and a full cooked Scottish if required, or any combination. Naomi catered admirably for a gluten-free diet requirement.
