Welcome to Lawnmarket, the most popular neighborhood in Edinburgh’s UNESCO World Heritage Site. Enjoy all the City has to offer ... just steps from our penthouse bed and breakfast on a Grade-A listed building completed in 1727.
This B&B is very special indeed. It is in a wonderful Grade-A listed building completed in 1727, in the very centre of Edinburgh … Lawnmarket on the Royal Mile. Some guests say that the penthouse offers the best visitor experience in town. We can't disagree! So far, living here has been wonderful. When you arrive in the penthouse, you will step into the light-drenched reception room complete with dining table and choice of slippers to wear indoors. We have two bedrooms on the 9th floor (elevator included) of this Grade A listed building and it is across the street from 36 acres of the loveliest public gardens in Edinburgh (Princes Street Gardens).
National Treasure (ensuite bathroom)
Your bed is a King, the mattress is pocket-sprung, it's 30cm deep … and it’s incredibly comfortable. The 100% cotton bedding is just perfect, it has a thread count of 500. After a long day sightseeing, imagine yourself resting on one of the two chairs. Or catching up with emails. Then there are the six hangers, coffee, a choice of six teas and few surprises too. There's one window and two timber shutters - great for leaving the light and sound out. And for keeping the warmth in. You will have a radiator with thermostat, gas central heating and a heated towel rail in the bathroom. Your room has good views of St Giles Cathedral, Arthurs Seat and Mary Stairs Close. You will be directly above the Writers' Museum on Lady Stair's Close and next to Makars Court, where Scotland's most famous writers are remembered. Your bathroom is 4 square metres. It comes complete with a walk-in shower. And it’s ensuite too. You will have three 100% cotton towels (90x45cm, 125x70cm and 180x84cm) and two face towels.
