Very Pleasant Stay
This was our second time here and it was perfect for our needs. We were here for the Fringe Festival. Comfortable, quiet and clean, convenient for getting to the centre by bus or on foot, delicious breakfasts freshly prepared and lovely host. Would definitely recommend.

Best Hospitality In The Scottish Tradition
I've stayed with the Daulbys at Ashdene House for about 20 years, off and on, and my recent stay was the best ever. Quiet, really comfortable room, everything you could want, new bathroom, excellent breakfast, helpful host (thank you, Caroline!) My husband loved our stay - his first visit here. Just be aware that there are stairs.

Very Comfortable And Convenient
We returned to Ashdene House this year, having enjoyed our stay so much last year. The location is very good- situated in a quiet leafy residential street 20-25 minutes walk to the city centre. Caroline can supply daily bus passes to make getting around easier. Our room was really comfortable and the breakfasts are excellent. Preserves are all home made! We shall definitely be returning next year!

Friendly welcome from Caroline. Room was very clean and bed was comfortable. Shower was good. Free bus pass was a nice touch. Free parking outside for the weekend was a godsend. Location is convenient for bus travel and not too far to walk into town if you feel like it either. Wide variety for breakfast. Appreciated Caroline letting me know I'd left something behind too. Would definitely stay again. Thank you.

Comfortable Quiet Housing
I really liked the attentive service in the ashdene house provided by Mrs. Caroline Daulby. Every question we had was answered and the cleanliness of the room was very good too.

The breakfast was astounding and keeps full till evening.

The only thing I would give as a feedback is, that the Internet connection was not always stable and could be better.

Other than that, everything was good and the bus was not so far away either.

I definitely recommended this housing to my family and friends.





Thanks for having us, see you again next time!

Thumbs Up!
It was a pleasure to stay at Ashdene House! Some things I can mention as to why....the room and bathroom were immaculate, which is so important for myself when away on holiday. Location wise, it was about a half an hour walk from the Royal Mile, or a quick and easy bus ride. The breakfasts each morning were delicious, and seemed to include everything, such as yougurt, oats and fruit to a hearty egg and sausage meal. Lastly, Caroline was as kind, helpful and professional as can be. I could not have found a better place to stay for my first experience in Scotland and would love to come back during my next visit!

Thank you for your review. All of our guest rooms were occupied!

Did you notice in the newspaper that the Queen, during her visit to Edinburgh last week, chose to eat at the same pub as you, but not on the same evening.

とっても快適です。
とてもお部屋が清潔で大変快適な3泊でした。

シングルルームの部屋は、トランクがギリギリ広げられる感じですが、天井が高く、窓もあるので開放的です。バスルームは、シャワーのみですが、こちらも非常に綺麗にされており気持ちがいいです。シャワー湯量、暖かさもパーフェクトです。

女主人のキャロラインさんが大変フレンドリーで英語のつたない私にもいろいろ声をかけてくださり快適にすごせました。

また、朝食会場が大変ステキで手入れされたお庭を見ながら、ご主人が作るおいしい朝食が最高です。朝食は、ジューツ、シリアル、ヨーグルト、フルーツがあり、ホットミールは、トラでディッショナルブレックファーストです。これがまたおいしい!

環境も非常によいエリアで、住宅街なので静かですし、徒歩圏内にスーパー、パブ、レストラン、ガソリンスタンド、バス停があります。

バスも本数はそれなりにあり、駅周辺までも10分程度で行けます。

徒歩圏内にアーサーズシートがあります。

またエジンバラに訪れるときは、こちらに泊まりたいと思います。

An Excellent Hotel Within Easy Reach Of Edinburgh City Centre.
A beautiful, very clean and well presented hotel. We received a warm welcome from Caroline, the owner, and our room was spacious, very clean and contained everything required to make our stay enjoyable. Breakfast was fresh and plentiful especially the home made porridge and was served in the conservatory overlooking the garden.

The hotel is located on a leafy, residential street with free parking. Regular buses travel into Edinburgh along the nearby main road but we walked (about 20 minutes) taking in the sights and sounds on our journey. Plenty of eating places nearby.

All in all a very luxurious, very clean and very welcoming hotel. A perfect base to explore Edinburgh.

Eine Perfekte Unterkunft In Edinburgh
Wir haben Ashdene House für eine ganze Woche gebucht und würden es wieder tun. Das Haus ist sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet, die Betten sind sehr bequem, das Zimmer war hell, freundlich und sehr praktisch eingerichtet, außerdem sehr sauber und komfortabel. Caroline Daulby hat uns jeden Morgen mit einem herrlichen full scottish breakfast verwöhnt. Es gab außerdem Säfte, Müsli&Co, frisches geschnittenes Obst und Naturjoghurt dazu. Das Frühstück wird im Wintergarten serviert und man hat einen schönen Blick in den sehr gepflegen Garten. Mrs.Daulby ist sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit, organisiert auch Trockenmöglichkeiten, wenn man doch vom Regen erwischt wurde und keine trockene Kleidung und Schuhe mehr hat. Ihre Restaurantempfehlungen sind goldwert. Die Busanbindung ist perfekt. Das Haus liegt in einer ruhigen Wohngegend, d.h. man kann nachts das Fenster offen lassen und wird nicht vom Straßenlärm gestört.

Probably the best guest house I have stayed in. The whole house is beautifully decorated and in excellent condition, the room was spotless and very comfortable, had all amenities (even a hot water bottle!) and in working condition. Excellent breakfast including buffet of fresh fruit salad, yogurt, cereals, etc, basket of toast on the table, plus choice of cooked breakfasts and porridge. Everything I had was delicious. The owner is lovely, the location great - a peaceful residential street with local shops - and the excellent Earthy's farm shop and cafe just round the corner.

An Address To Remember...
Expect a very warm welcome in a charming and cosy house. The bedrooms are very comfortable with all what is needed for a pleasant stay, including a working Wi-Fi connection.

The breakfast is marvellous and cooked at your request. It includes fresh fruits, yoghurt, cereals, coffee and/or tea and much more.

The house is located just outside the old city centre of Edinburgh in a quite neighbourhood, so no issues with street noise or any of that sort. And getting to the city is fast and easy by bus. We took a day ticket which you can ask for at the owner of the B&B.

We had a great stay and strongly recommend this place for people looking for a comfortable and quite accommodation, with more than sufficient privacy.

Excellent B & B
On arrival we were made to feel welcome and offered much helpful advice. The room (No 5) was immaculate, comfy and spacious; the en suite was extremely clean and well equipped. Breakfasts were also well prepared and presented with plenty of choices. Located in a pleasant, quiet road, Ashdene House is well situated for exploring Edinburgh. While it would be walkable, the numerous buses take you direct to the heart of Edinburgh - with free bus passes from the owner! A thoroughly enjoyable stay for two nights; would definitely recommend to others and hope to use again.

This was our second stay at Ashdene House. It is absolutely first class: immaculately kept; comfortable; friendly hosts; great food; good evening meal venues close by; quiet area; close to town (we walked in most days)although bus tickets are provided for your stay. We will keep going back. The Daulbys make this very high level of service look easy.

Stay At Ashdene House
The stay at Ashdene House was fabulous. It will be my choice for visits to Edinburgh in the future. Ashdene House is a comfortable distance from busy city center (though still close enough), allowing for restful nights and peaceful breakfasts in Caroline's lovely conservatory. She served us delicious food as well as knowledgeable information, so appreciated on a first visit to Scotland!

Delightful & Friendly
I fully enjoyed my stay at Ashdene House. Caroline Daulby is a charming and delightful hostess. The accommodations are quite nice and breakfast was wonderful.



I quite liked being in a neighborhood. The bus stop is only a few minutes walk from the house. Though it's not quite 2 miles to the High Street, it's very walkable with the opportunity to duck into a variety of shops or wander off the main streets to explore.

Ashdene House
We had a fabulous stay at Ashdene House and have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone visiting Edinburgh. It is very clean and comfortable and an extensive breakfast menu, which was excellent. We were also issiued with Lothian bus passes for the duration of our stay which we used constantly. There are numurous bus stops just a short walk from the guest house. being just outside of the city the guest house is in a quiet area but very accessable for the city and surrounding areas. Thankyou so much.

We had room 5 for 9 nights and we couldn't ask for better hosts. The room was immaculate, breakfast was what you would expect from a 5 star hotel and as for the hosts they couldn't do enough for you.

Ashdene Self-catering
I stayed at one of Ashdene's self-catering properties recently, with my elderly mother. The flat was spacious, spick and span, and had absolutely everything provided that you could possibly think of. It was nicely furnished, everything up to date, warm and cosy, and even a lovely vase of carnations to greet us on arrival. I would strongly recommend Ashdene self-catering. It is excellent.

Myself and my cousin stayed here on Sept 20/13 and had a wonderful stay. The room was clean, bed was comfortable and breakfast was fantastic (first time I knew vegetarian haggis existed and it was good). The staff was very friendly and accomodating, allowing us to leave our bags there after check-out so we could go into town while waiting to go visit friends near Arthurs Seat. A selection of resturants are located near by as are bus routes that took us into town. Would certainly stay here again and recommend it to others.

For The Fringe
As first time visitors to Edinburgh we chose Ashdene House for its location, close enough to the centre to walk (20 mins at good pace) but far enough away to avoid the noise. I am happy to say we intend to book again for next year. Great food, very, very clean and we were made to feel welcome.



Thank you for making our stay enjoyable and sending us out to the fringe festival with the best breakfast north of the boarder.

1st Trip To Edinburgh
Very nice looking, extremely clean, comfortable bedding, great location in a very well kept, QUITE, neighborhood, ( upper middle class if I were to guess), tasty breakfast, and the staff was friendly and helpful too. Our walking time to downtown @ the royal mile about 45 min., could be quicker if we didn't stop and sight see, etc. Our room was on the top floor so lugging the luggage was sort of a cardio, (the wife over packs every trip). We would stay here again and recommend to our friends to stay here too. .... BTW, while not exactly a young couple, we reject the "mature" label, sorta in between....

Museum of Scotland - Museum

Museum of Scotland - Museum

Distance 1.09 miles (1.74 km)
The Museum of Scotland is a striking and impressive achievement, beautifully framed by its surroundings, by Edinburgh's Old and New Towns, and the landscape beyond. From the Museum's roof-top garden visitors will have an unrivalled view of the historical as well as architectural context of the new building. Edinburgh Castle , Greyfriars Kirk, the Scott Monument , the spires and pinnacles of the city, the sea, and the hills beyond interact with the new museum, reinforcing its role as a central point in the nation's heritage, a protector of Scotland 's treasures. In 1991 architects Benson + Forsyth were selected as winners of the architectural competition to design the new Museum of Scotland .

Edinburgh Castle - Castle

Edinburgh Castle - Castle

Distance 1.23 miles (1.97 km)
A majestic landmark which dominates the capital city's skyline just as it has dominated Scotland's long and colourful history. Edinburgh Castle is the best known and most visited of Historic Scotland's buildings. Perched on an extinct volcano and offering stunning views, this instantly recognisable fortress is a powerful national symbol, and part of Edinburgh's World Heritage Site. A rich mix of architectural styles reflects the castle's complex history and role as both stronghold and seat of Kings. The tiny St Margaret's Chapel, Edinburgh's oldest building, dates from the 1100s.

Gladstones Land - Edinburgh - Historical Houses

This is an example of an early high-rise which housed diverse social classes. The merchant and his family would have lived in two of the apartments while the others would have been rented to another merchant, a minister, a knight and a guild officer.Gladstone's Land provides a unique opportunity to experience how people lived and worked in Edinburgh's Old Town over 300 years ago. The merchant's home features a remarkable painted ceiling, wall decoration, fine furnishings and a fascinating kitchen. On the ground floor, shop booths have been recreated in their original setting, complete with merchandise.

Edinburgh Centre - Town Centre

Edinburgh Centre - Town Centre

Distance 1.52 miles (2.43 km)
Edinburgh is the breathtakingly beautiful capital of Scotland, an exciting place to visit at any time of year. Edinburgh offers you superb sightseeing, historic buildings to explore, quiet galleries and museums to intrigue you, thrilling new attractions to discover, serious shopping, a vast choice of excellent Restaurants, Bistros, Wine Bars, Pubs and Cafes, and nightlife to suit all tastes. When the Picts built a fort on a volcanic crag in the 5th century, to protect Scotland from the invading Angles of Northumberland, Edinburgh's history began. The present Castle, was built on the site by Michael Canmore (1057-93); his wife St. Margaret, built the chapel which you can still visit today.
