Very central, and facing Queen Street Gardens (as a guest you have special private access) this bed and breakfast guest house, owned by the same family as Castle View Guest House, has 12 bedrooms ranging from large family rooms to single bedrooms.
It is a magnificent building dating from the 1790's, part of Edinburgh's wonderfully rich Georgian heritage. The interior has been renovated and the bedrooms are contemporary in style with smart modern shower-rooms and bathrooms.
Just along the street is the Scottish National Portrait Gallery - the best place to see Scottish history come alive in portraits going back to the 1500's.
This is a great place to stay in Edinburgh; Queen Street is close to George Street and Princes Street, and Edinburgh Castle, the shops, museums, galleries, pubs, bars and cafés are accessible on foot.
There are 12 bedrooms (three illustrated here). Bedrooms range from smaller single or double bedrooms to large family rooms. One looks from the front over Queen Street Gardens, one has a skylight window, the others face South at the back of the house - a quiet and peaceful night's sleep.
