Best hospitality in the Scottish tradition - Rating 5/5

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.


It was lovely to see you again and meet your husband. So glad you enjoyed the new bathroom - we\'ve had so many nice comments about them!Hope you both enjoy the rest of your journey around Scotland.

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.

Thumbs Up! - Rating 5/5

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!

Eine perfekte Unterkunft in Edinburgh - Rating 5/5

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.


Vielen Dank für Ihre Bewertung. Wir freuen uns sehr zu hören, dass Sie möchten, um zu unserem Guest House zurück.

Probably the best guest house I have stayed in.

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. If I go back to Edinburgh I won't even bother looking for somewhere different to stay unless Ashdene House is fully booked.

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.


It was very kind of you to take the time to write this. Thanks.We hope to see you again in the future.

Excellent B & B - Rating 5/5

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 - Rating 5/5

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!

We had a whale of a time in Edinburgh. Not least because of this small but excellent hotel. The room was very clean and comfortable. The breakfast in the winter garden was brilliant. But the most important, we did really appreciate the very friendly host. Thanks Caroline!


Thank you for your kind words. It was our pleasure to accommodate you and glad that you enjoyed the New Year experience in our beautiful city.

Delightful & friendly - Rating 5/5

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 - Rating 5/5

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.


Thank you for taking time to write this and glad to hear that your bus passes helped you enjoy the city and surroundings.

Fantastic stay - Rating 5/5

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. If you are ever in Edinburgh we suggest you stay here if you want a fantastic stay.we are going back next year.


It was lovely to see you again and to hear about your day trips around Scotland. Lots to plan for your next trip so you can see even more!

Ashdene self-catering - Rating 5/5

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.


Thank you for your review. Glad the accommodation met your needs, being on the ground floor and with a bus stop across the road.

Great stay - Rating 4/5

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 - Rating 5/5

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.Mark &Donna.

1st Trip to Edinburgh - Rating 5/5

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 thetop floor so lugging the luggage was sort of a cardio, (the wife over packs every trip). Wewould stay here again and recommend to our friends to stay here too. .... BTW, while not exactlya young couple, we reject the "mature"label, sorta in between....Cheers....


Thank you for taking time to write this. Really glad to hear that you enjoyed your first experience of Edinburgh and hope to see you back one day. Hope the rest of your trip is just as good.
