Glenalmond House, Edinburgh
Friendly helpful host. Clean modern facilities.
A Traveler, us2 night family trip
Glenalmond House, Edinburgh
Some Good Points and Some Not So Good
It would have been great (the breakfast was very good and the house and room are quite nice). Good location as well. However, it was cold at night (they turn the heat off at night and we could not understand what the point was of only having it on during the day when nobody is home). When I asked the owner about it, her response was "Why don't you go stay someplace else." Her husband, Jimmy is quite the opposite. He is very friendly and helpful.

Warm and conveniently located to Edinburgh City
Great stay, amazing quality and choice of breakfasts. Jimmy is great, such a lovely guy! Only downside was that the on-suite was a little on the small side

A warm welcome and comfortable stay.
A lovely warm welcome on our arrival, Jimmy gave us helpful tips on where to eat, how to get around the city (gave us a handy map) Warm, clean and comfortable Double Bedroom with shower room, nicely furnished. Breakfast was chosen from a menu the night before and was of a very high standard and quality, excellent choice, well cooked and presented. Well done to Jimmy and Fiona, would definitely be very happy to stay here again!
