We were made to feel very welcome from the moment we arrived. The room and bathroom was very clean and the bed so comfortable.”
“Great location, close to the Military Tattoo, near bus services. House is beautiful and breakfast was fast, hot and delicious. Staff were friendly and helpful. In a very busy time in the city it was a quiet haven for a lovely stay.”

the welcome

When you’re away from home, the little things make a big difference.

A warm welcome; a comfortable bed; a really good shower; a delicious breakfast; the chance to use the Internet easily; a quiet location, on-street parking…

But it’s the extras that seal the deal.

High quality restaurants within walking distance; a gym, cinema and theatre just up the road; award-winning visitor attractions like the Royal Yacht Britannia within good reach; multiple bus routes nearby so you can explore easily.

All these and more are on offer when you stay at the Abbotsford.  Whether you are planning a short visit to Edinburgh, or looking for a longer encounter with our beautiful city, we hope you’ll make the Abbotsford your choice – for an enjoyable and relaxing stay.

We welcome visitors to Edinburgh from all over the world, and from right across the UK. Whether you are travelling solo, as a couple, with family or as part of a group, we have a range of rooms available to suit your needs, all set within a beautiful traditional Edinburgh Victorian townhouse.

We’re family owned and run.  With a Scottish Italian heritage, we understand good Scottish hospitality – and how to offer good food!

We take pride in our personal service and in going the extra mile.  That includes a hostess bilingual in English and Italian – with a winning smile in both.

Please take some time to have a look through our website and get a better idea of what we have to offer.  To see our terms and conditions, please click on the reservations page.
