Robin Jack and Colin Lennox have completely renovated Ardmor House, preserving its Victorian details, adding wireless internet access, smart contemporary shower-rooms, comfortable beds to each bedroom, and decorating and furnishing in their own relaxing and up-beat style. This is a very comfortable place to stay, and Robin and Colin delight in doing all they can to make your stay in Edinburgh easy and enjoyable.

They offer bed and breakfast, a friendly welcome, and convivial hospitality - what more could you want in the middle of Edinburgh? Well, how about free parking? Ardmor House has that too... right outside the house in Pilrig Street (photo, left).

If you are on foot, there are plenty of buses up and down Leith Walk, and the lively Broughton area, Edinburgh Playhouse and cinema multiplex, lots of bars, cafés, restaurants and bistros are a leisurely 10 minute walk away.

This is a really comfortable place to stay, and Robin and Colin enjoy doing all they can to make your stay in Edinburgh as easy and agreeable as possible.


There are 5 bedrooms in all, all with shower-rooms en suite and temperature controllable central heating. Single, double, twin or 3 to 4 sharing.
