The Albyn Townhouse is our home and offers traditional B&B accommodation. Not a walker? Edinburgh is built on 7 hills! it is not for the faint hearted. Please bear this fact in mind when booking with us & also the fact that we are not a hotel and therefore do not offer the same facilities. Our extensive menu comprises many homemade delicacies & is cooked fresh on the day, using local produces: try Mama's cakes, Jams & compotes, all good for you! There is no elevator, the Albyn is a listed Victorian building within a 4-storey, 19th-century traditional town house. Beware of heavy luggage, due to illness I am unable to carry heavier luggage than 5 kilos.
The Albyn is small & our home, so we like our team to be part of our family, so our staff is dedicated & follows the same philosophy as us! We are a small family with three kids, 1 dog & a lot of customers to take care of. Our B&B is very much decorated at our image, we are a team of makers! so we have decorated and crafted a lot of the features & soft furnishings you will find at the Albyn. Our favourite things to do?; Our city!! in the largest sense possible...we love everything about it, we walk it, visit it & I paint it!! We love cooking & baking as a family & eating local food, go to the Stockbridge market every week-end, roll as many hills as we can with the kids on the Meadows & make wishes with as many dandelions as we can find!! We look forward to meeting you soon!
Brunstfield is a lovely quarter away from the hustle & bustle of the city but yet with many independents shops and restaurants just 2 minutes walk from us!
