More Room Types

A "Victorian extravaganza of carved oak, parquet floors, stained glass and elaborate fireplaces" (Lonely Planet), B+B Edinburgh is a Victorian mansion in Edinburgh's West End, on the doorstep of the Old Town.

The hotel is a 23-minute walk from Waverley Station and Edinburgh Castle, and a 25-minute walk from St Giles' Cathedral and the Royal Mile. There's plenty for art lovers to see: the Scottish National Gallery and Royal Scottish Academy are both close to the castle -- a recent modernisation has created an underground link between the two. There are two Michelin-starred restaurants in central Edinburgh (and two more in Leith), so gastronomes are well catered for too.

The hotel's most striking room is the galleried, double-height Library Lounge, crammed full of an eclectic mix of books, antiques and paintings. There's also a bar, a business centre and an events room, which can be used for private dining or meetings. Full Scottish breakfast is included in your stay -- it's served from 7:30-10am Monday-Friday, and 8-10:30am on Sundays and bank holidays.

All rooms have ensuite bathrooms and free Wi-Fi. Double Rooms have a 5ft double bed. Double or Twin rooms have a 6ft bed that can also be converted into two singles. Family Rooms have a convertible bed and a sofa bed. There are also Accessible Rooms and Large Family Suites that can sleep up to six people. Petite Double Rooms on the top floor are smaller, but Lonely Planet recommends them as they have the finest views of the city.
