Bed & Breakfast Chic situated in a Victorian townhouse located only a few minutes walk from Princes Street. The rooms are quiet, luxurious and well appointed with great attention to detail for our guests' convenience and pleasure. You will find a warm gracious greeting from the host, Derrick, and a depth of knowledge about Edinbugh and ways to get around. The breakfasts are innovative and scrumptious with great attention paid to sustainable supply from local artisan suppliers. Dietary preferences and requirements are catered for particulary if they are arranged in advance. At Allburys we do everything we can to ensure our guests can enjoy their visit to Edinbugh to the fullest.

West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in industrial Britain had their most desirable neighborhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes. Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along the district’s busy main roads. Lothian Road connects to southern Edinburgh and harbors a vague entertainment district: three theaters and the city’s main indie cinema. All attract a select crowd, the sort who appreciate the Saturday Edinburgh’s Farmers’ Market around the corner. The West End’s other great thoroughfare, Shandwick Place, is dominated by trams trundling out to the suburbs and airport, and shoppers picking up last-minute items before hopping aboard.

The place is a very nice bed and breakfast within walking distance from the Haymarket train station. It's on a quiet street but with pubs and supermarkets nearby. You can get to the Prince Street (centre of Edinburgh's tourist and shopping area) in 5-10 minutes...More

Nice and clean room, very friendly owner, amazing breakfast (try the scottish full!), quiet neighbourhood... It was great! It's close to Haymarket with some really nice pubs, and it takes around 15 mins by walking to the historic city centre.

This was a return visit to Allburys and it did not disappoint. As before the room was elegantly decorated, generously proportioned and spotless, we were extremely comfortable. What really sets Allburys apart is its wonderful owner and host, Derrick. His superlative breakfast and local knowledge...More
