“Gifford House is a real find in an era of soulless big city accommodation. The hotel is run by live-in owners who are interested in their guests’ experience, who are eager to satisfy their expectations and who maintain the property to a high standard – Trip Advisor Review 2015



“The Best B&B! We loved Gifford House! Our room was large and looked onto a back garden and Arthur’s Seat. Our host was very accommodating, he helped us with bus routes, where to go, where to have dinner, he just knew everything. He also let us use his phone to call our credit card company. He and his wife went out of their way to be helpful! Breakfast was fantastic and there was a large selection of jams and fruits and we just stuffed ourselves..scrambled eggs were perfectly cooked. We had a great stay & didn’t want to leave!”  Q Book/ 2016


“Excellent accommodation with loads of character and super hosts in David and Margaret. Enjoyed the lighter breakfast choice on the menu. The b&b was very convenient for my business trip venue. Good also for a bus as required. A real treat and merits 5 stars.”  Trip Advisor / 2016
