Nice B&B conveniently located to buses
Our room was very nice; breakfast was good; and the owner was very personable, helpful, and informative. WiFi was sketchy

Best price we could find this close to city. Perfect for bus service into Edinburgh. Exceptional hostess who was extremely kind and informative. Bed was not kingsize as advertised and was rather hard, but that was the only concern. Also on very busy street which is not apparent from the address, but with earplugs is doable. Would definitely recommend, with request for softer bed, simply because the hostess is incredibly helpful and kind. Superb breakfast as well.

You will LOVE Alba House
We love Kath and her husband at Alba House. A wonderful stay and comfortable room. Best breakfast we had in the month in the United Kingdom. We had asked for the room with the Bay Window and our request was granted. A lovely room. Close to town, but not in the heart of town. A quick bus ride and you are at the castle.
