About Albyn Townhouse
Thanks! You will receive an email as soon as the property has answered your question.
My aim at the Albyn is to offer you a very personal, relaxing & quiet stay in a beautiful setting. The Albyn Townhouse is a gorgeous historic building dating from early 1890's, a portion of it is our family home and offers traditional & beautiful room accommodation. The rooms are decorated & furnished by myself. The Albyn is located in an amazing & cosmopolitan area of Bruntsfield, 20 min from the Old city. 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 me & also the fact that we are not a hotel and therefore do not offer the same facilities. We have teamed with the amazing restaurants available in Bruntsfield for you where you can have 10% discount for breakfast, let me know and i can reserve for you. I also offer a lovely breakfast basket in the room, book in advance, at an extra fee. Remember! no elevator, the Albyn is a Victorian Manse within a 4-storey, 19th-century traditional town house. Beware of heavy luggage, due to illness I am unable to carry heavy luggage for you.
The Albyn is my home, i adore this house and live on site with my three kids, 1 dog & a lot of customers to take care of. Albyn 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! We are located 20 minutes walk to the Old city.
