Enjoy a large, garden-facing twin bedroom on our guest floor with shared shower-rm & kitchenette. Our house is centrally located with shops, cafes, cinema & a theatre to enjoy within the local area. Easy walking distance or buses to the city centre.

Opportunity to stay in a centrally located victorian townhouse (terraced) in pretty Merchiston/Polwarth. Our guest rooms are on the top floor of our house and can accommodate up to 4 people in 2 bedrooms (see our other listings). There is a kitchenette & large shower-rm (shared between the 2 guest rooms) on the same floor. We've recently bought new beds and mattresses for the rooms, so you're bound to have a good night's sleep!

We will provide you with a key to the house so you will have access 24 hours a day. As this is our family home, we work on a trust basis and our guest rooms (incl our own rms) don't have individual locks on the doors.

Our guest rooms are in our home so we will be there and would love to see and speak to you when you're not busy exploring our beautiful city. Helena works during the day, but Jim will be around most of the time to offer advice etc.

Polwarth/ Merchiston is a very quiet neighbourhood located next to the Union Canal. It's mainly residential, but it's very central and within walking distance to all the main attractions in Edinburgh. We live in quite a leafy part of town, with harrison park and the union canal round the corner. There's lots of cafes and shops available on Gilmore Place and in nearby Bruntsfield and we're also close to the cinema at Fountain Park and the theatres at Tollcross and Lothian Road.

Buses are available on the main road (Polwarth Gardens) within 2 minutes walk from the house. Number 10 and 27. More buses are also available at Tollcross, 10 minutes walk from the house. Buses cost £1.50 for a single ticket and day/night tickets are also available. You'll need the exact change if buying your tickets on the bus.

Our guest rooms are on the top floor (2nd floor) of our old victorian house. This floor is for guests only (2 bedrooms only) and the shower-rm and kitchenette is a shared facility between the 2 guest rooms, if indeed both are occupied at the same time.

This was our best stay ever. Very comfortable, pleasant home in a good neighborhood. Jim and Helena are very experienced hosts who make you feel special. Helena keeps up a meaningful interesting conversation and Jim is a great tease who gives excellent advice about the city. Highly recommend.

We had a wonderful stay with Helena and Jim. Both are incredibly gracious hosts! The room is spacious, sunny and bright, and the kitchenette and bathroom are great. Helena and Jim were even so kind as to stock the room with some breakfast items! Thank you Helena and Jim, hope to stay with you again!

Joelle and her friend Camilla were superb guests. We were astounded by their stamina during the Edinburgh Festival - taking every opportunity to see shows and take in the atmosphere. We wish them both all the very best in their future plans and hope we may meet again.

Helena and Jim's place was fantastic and exactly as advertised. We were able to walk there easily from town, it was peaceful and provided everything you would want. I definitely recommend it and would use it again should I return to Edinburgh.

Helena & Jim were the perfect hosts: friendly, welcoming & helpful. The room was a good size with comfy beds and a handy table. The tea & coffee tray had some very thoughtful little extras. The bathroom is roomy with a good shower & it was very handy to have use of the well equipped kitchenette. The house is in a quiet area, within walking distance of the city centre along the pleasant canal-side. There are also frequent buses. We would definitely stay here again.

This feedback has not been bought by Helena and Jim! :-) They are a really warm and friendly married couple. The private accommodation including the bathroom was very clean. The bed was very good, not too hard and not too soft, just perfect. They do so much more than anyone staying in one of their rooms could ever expect. Both have made the Tattoo one of the best things we have ever done. We hope they have rooms on offer again when we next come back to Edinburgh.

Hi, we're Jim and Helena from Edinburgh, Scotland. Jim's retired from teaching art and I'm a director of a Scottish mental health charity.

We have a long history of welcoming people to our home. Whether actors, musicians or artists, doctors or international students, we always enjoy meeting people from across the world and from diverse cultures. We have some knowledge of spoken French and Polish if that helps some guests.

Jim's keen on fishing and since retiring he indulges in his other interest - travelling across Europe on his Pan-European motorbike. I have an interest in theatre and cinema, belong to a local book club and enjoy travel.
