Greatest Little Secret in Edinburgh
My stay at Blinkbonny House was all that other top reviews have stated. The host Sean was extremely accommodating and cordial. Each morning a full Scottish breakfast was served to order in the immaculate dining room. My room was clean and comfortable with a full personal bathroom. The location is a brisk 30-35 minute walk to center city Edinburgh. The Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art is 10 minutes away in the same area. Convenient to buses to the city centre. I would stay at Blinkbonny on my next visit to Edinburgh over one of the big name brand hotels any day. Much more personal and better service and accommodations.

4/10 Fair

Disappointing. Received booking confirmation from but arrived after 3:00pm and host was unaware of my reservation. Room/house was not ready. Cold dark room near busy road. Paid two nights (cash because card machine didn’t work) left after one. Moved in town.

Great family find for Edinburgh visitors!!
This home is an amazing find! Shaun was outstanding as our host and adjusting when my nephew made unplanned visit to breakfast. Bus stops to go anywhere are only 6 minute walk. Fantastic stay and extremely clean and well cared for area home. The Scottish breakfasts were quite a treat so.
