Everything was just perfect. And the host and her family really make you feel at home. We will come back! Thank you for a fantastic stay.
Warm friendly greeting, made us feel at ease and very informative about surrounding area and entertainment. Nice room, good location, lovely staff.
WiFi connection was poor and struggled to connect. One side of the bed was lopsided but it was explained that this room was due to be refurbished, but otherwise comfortable.
very friendly and helpful host. 5min walk from beach front. out of the city centre but really easy access. free parking. lovely and warm.
Friendly owner Cleanliness Location Great Food Warm and Cosy Room
The hostess' hospitality. The location near the beach. The size of the house. Not a big hotel. Very nice and personal.
Friendly welcome Nothing too much trouble Tastefully decorated Beautifully furnished Great breakfast
It was fantastic and the owner was amazing we loved it we will be staying there many times hopefully
We booked 2 rooms at abercorn for my wife and I & also for my parents. The location is just 15 to 20 mins on the bus directly outside the guesthouse, breakfast was great with entry of choice, owners could not do enough to make your stay wonderful. Lovely traditional house with big bedrooms. Leith and the royal yacht Britannia is just 5 minute drive, definitely worth a visit. Thank you Angela for all your help with things to do and see, we look forward to staying with you again.
A beautiful Grade II listed house, that is very tastefully decorated and when I arrived on the evening of 1st December 2014, the house was also adorned with a number of Christmas trees, which set the tone for a very warm welcome. Angela (the landlady) couldn't have been nicer or more accommodating either. My room (No.1) on the ground floor was immaculate and very tastefully appointed too. It was set out like a scene from House Beautiful Magazine, unlike some of the soul-less corporate chain hotels that rarely live up to ones expectations. I was very impressed with Abercorn, as I booked it with some trepidation having stayed in some ropey guest-houses in the past and was truly delighted to find that it was as nice as it was. The breakfast was lovely too. Hoping to return with my wife at some point. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Nothing negative to say.
Staff very friendly, breakfast was excellent and very well presented.
No car park so had to park on the road side.
The B&B is a block and a half from the beach. There is a small grocery store directly across the street. Angela and her family were very accommodating and breakfast was delicious, plentiful, and ready for us when we were ready for it. Our 2-year-old son enjoyed the front yard and wished he had seen more of the dogs! The bus stop for the bus to downtown Edinburgh is about half a block away. It was about a 10-minute drive to the city center.
Parking is just on the street, though we never had a problem finding a spot. As mentioned by someone else, the house has pets (2 dogs and a cat) which were never in our way, but allergies in the family reminded us they were there.
Palatial rooms and great staff. Great value for money.
Angela and her husband were helpful, welcoming and generous.A lovely place to stay.
Host. House and everything about it. Location just if beach with lovely walks bars and eateries. Bus service great every ten minutes right into Edinburgh town centre. So no car park worries. Over all excellent
Angela and Willie are the perfect hosts. The building is a classic and the neighbourhood outstanding. This is simply the best Scottish B&B I have ever stayed in.
Large room, couch and chairs for sitting and placing clothes, easy to work shower, TV well placed up high, comfy big bed but above all it was warm! Staff friendly and helpful
Nothing wrong for us...
Beautiful guest house. Very knowledgable and friendly hosts. We arrived 3 hours before check in time but were accommodated
