Set in a refurbished Victorian town house tucked away at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac in the fashionable Bruntsfield district, this B&B is a real home-away-from-home. Designer-ish decor doesn't detract from the welcoming atmosphere, and the owners (plus their charming dog) are only too pleased to offer advice on where to go and what to see.
