            Quaint and Homey We loved the initial feel of this bed and breakfast. We took a cab from the airport for just over 20 pounds. We missed the check in but they left brilliant self check-in instructions with a hand written greeting. Our room was a perfect size for us, the bathroom roomy. They offered shampoo, conditioner, soap, and lotion that smelled great. Our bed was comfortable and we had a bottle of champagne and a box of chocolates waiting for us. Our questions were always answered, and they were more than willing to help us with sightseeing and/or activities. They are located about 20 minute walk from the Royal Mile. We didn’t mind the walk, and enjoyed seeing the different parts of town, but I’m unsure how the bus routes work if you don’t want to walk. The breakfast offered many different diet options (vegan, gluten, vegetarian) and was fine. The Christmas decorations and general feel of it made Albyn a comfortable place to stay!

            Satisfactory but not great”

            Albyn is a nice enough place, but not especially good. The room was cramped and had sloping ceilings in some areas that put you at risk of injury if you got up at night (they need nightlights there); the food was adequate, but did not compare with other places we stayed; and communications with staff consisted chiefly of written notes, that seemed to involve an excessive number of rules and regulations written by a kindly, but overbearing nanny.

The only thing was this place was some 25 mins walk from the city center. If you like to walk, sure this place is highly recommended. Oh, and don't forget to try the restaurants they have recommended nearby, especially the Italian one. It's one of the best I've had during my trip to U.K.

            Excellent Experience at Albyn”

            Where do I start?! We had an absolutely wonderful experience at Albyn Town House! There were 5 in our group- 2 couples and a single- in 3 separate rooms. I had communicated with Lydie ahead of time, as it was my partner's birthday. She arranged to get a cake and had her lovely children make him an hand-written card which was in our room upon arrival. She went above and beyond to make his day special! She also accommodated an early arrival for us and was so kind, friendly, and helpful throughout our stay. The property is lovely, architecture is impressive and feels very homey/comfortable and the room/bathroom quality were great. The bed was very comfortable and the breakfast was DELICIOUS! Great, safe location about 15 min walk to old town Edinburgh, with plenty of great restaurants, cafes, and shops close by (less than 5 mins). Words cannot do justice on how pleased we were at Albyn and how wonderful Lydie was! I sincerely hope to come back again soon and would highly recommend this B&B to all!
