Charm and Comfort
23 Mayfield is a beautiful house in a neighborhood that is quiet and relaxing but extremely convenient to all the Edinburgh sites. The host, Ross, and his family were warm and welcoming and quick to help with suggestions for everything from transportation to the best walking routes and restarants. Breakfast is fantastic, and the dining room is lovely too. HIghly recommended.

Kinderfreies Wochenende
Ein sehr schöne Unterkunft für ein Wochenende ohne Kinder. Sehr zu empfehlen sind die Specials zum Frühstück. Unbedingt genutzt werden sollte die sehr gute Busverbindung in die City (Busstop in weniger als zwei Minuten zu erreichen). Alle dort waren freundlich und aufs äußerste bemüht, uns den Aufenthalt so schön als möglich zu gestalten (hat geklappt). Das war sicher nicht das letzte Mal das wir dort Gäste waren.
