"I quite often travel to Edinburgh for business and pleasure and have stayed in all types of accommodation. It was a recommendation that bought me to this very impressive Victorian house located in a very quiet street in Edinburgh’s Bruntsfield area. The location is great as it offers wonderful little shops and varied restaurants all next to a beautiful park with stunning views of the castle, we even found a small golf course which had its own open championship! You can walk via the park to the city centre in about fifteen minutes but if you don’t fancy that almost all the buses go to the city centre. The house has its own private car park which we found to be invaluable during our stay. The rooms are very clean and comfortable and the service excellent. The owner Lydie was always on hand to offer advice from where to eat to which tour to take which we found very helpful. We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend the Albyn to anyone visiting Edinburgh; first class!"
