Albyn Townhouse

Rated 9.4 in 537 reviews. 8 rooms.


The Albyn Townhouse is our home and offers traditional B&B accommodation. 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 us & also the fact that we are not a hotel and therefore do not offer the same facilities. Our extensive menu comprises many homemade delicacies & is cooked fresh on the day, using local produces: try Mama's cakes, Jams & compotes, all good for you! There is no elevator, the Albyn is a listed Victorian building within a 4-storey, 19th-century traditional town house. Beware of heavy luggage, due to illness I am unable to carry heavier luggage than 5 kilos.

Just 20 minutes’ walk from Edinburgh Medieval City, The Albyn Townhouse offers 4-star, family-run accommodation with king-size beds and week-ends full Scottish breakfasts within a 4-storey, 19th-century town house.

All rooms at The Albyn offer flat-screen TVs, free and fast business Wi-Fi, and the option of king-size beds in all rooms. Hairdryers and tea facilities and coffee pod machines are also available to guests.

Guests can order in advance a breakfast basket to be brought to their room, for an additional fee. We have teamed up with cafés and restaurants in Bruntsfield for you to enjoy breakfast at a 2 minutes walk.

Edinburgh’s Haymarket Rail Station is 20 minutes’ walk away. The centre of Edinburgh, along with the famed Royal Mile and Edinburgh's Old Town, is less than 20 minutes’ walk away, or 10 minutes by bus. We offer private gated car park at an extra fee.
