This hotel is perfect for...
• Peace and quiet • Lazy days
What I liked
The proximity to town (bus 11 is right at the door and takes you to Edinburgh center in 10 minutes). The personal touches, from the Scottish delicacies on your pillow on arrival to the delicious breakfast (try everything home-made: jam, muffins… they are enchanting to the palate)! The eco-friendly policy of not changing towels automatically (it is done upon request if you place your towels in the shower). The view from our room (4) of the peaceful and lovely backyard garden.
What could be better
We were a little disturbed by our active neighbours (a young couple, apparently) so sound-proofing is not optimal but it only happened twice so that was ok.
The Scotsman restaurant is a must-see – and a must dine! It is right off North bridge (you can take a bus, the 11, into town and get off right after the Starbucks (I forgot the name of the stop) and then cross the bridge which affords breathtaking views of the city centre.) And, Arthur's Seat is a 35-minute intense hike with an amazing view of the city by way of reward.

Ardmor House was very comfortable, quiet and friendly. The breakfast is delicious. Not in the most scenic part of town but within walking distance of both the centre and Leith. A fabulous cafe only five minutes away on Forth Street is Urban Angel (www.urbanangel.co.uk) and for the best fish restaurant, try Fishers in Leith (www.fishersbistros.co.uk) This is easily one of the best fish restaurants in the UK.

Elegantly furnished and decorated. Extremely friendly and personable owners/staff. Magnificent breakfasts and handy location. Would recommend for your stay in Edinburgh.
