80 Great King Street

Georgian Edinburgh: a bed and breakfast that's like a 'home from home'.

Great King Street was designed by Robert Reid in 1804 and built about 15 years later - a wide residential street, one of the finest in Edinburgh - elegant in its simplicity.

Jill Robertson's apartment comprises the first floor of Number 80 (the three windows in the middle of the photograph, right), where she welcomes guests for bed and breakfast. These are wonderful rooms: high ceilings, tall windows, original window shutters and fine classical molded plaster cornices. Her apartment is informal, calmingly decorated and quiet, and only 5 minutes walk from Princes Street.

Jill has a business, EH3 homesearch, where she helps people find residential rentals and purchases in Edinburgh. So she knows Edinburgh very well and is always ready to give advice about where to go, what to see or where are the best places to eat (in fact there's an amazing variety of good places to eat within a couple of hundred yards).

If you are looking for the experience of space, light and classical proportions of Georgian Edinburgh, combined with a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere this is the place to stay!

The Double bed is 140cm (55 inches) wide.

Jill is very relaxed about her home - if you feel like a biscuit and a cup of tea or coffee, just help yourself in the kitchen.


Breakfast The kitchen and breakfast table

Breakfast is in the Kitchen area at the round oak table with a view of the gardens and backs of the surrounding Georgian houses.

Help yourself to fruit, fruit juices, cereals, freshly baked bread, toast, tea, fresh coffee, etc., on the table, and Jill can cook whatever you would like, though for special requests or special diets please give her advance warning.


The quoted rates are per night, based on two sharing a double room and are fully inclusive of a cooked breakfast and all taxes. Single rates need deduct £20 per night, but the minimum rate will be £75 in low season. Minimum two night booking.
