A warm welcome to a family house in historic central Edinburgh
The home is on the bright first and second floors of a Georgian house in the Unesco World Heritage part of the city centre.
There are two spacious bedrooms, each with its own private bathroom, just five minutes walk from Princes Street.
In 2018 The Guardian named us as one of its "Top Ten" B&B's in central Edinburgh. Also this year, the Daily Telegraph included us in its "Best Hotels in Edinburgh" list, giving us 9/10 for value for money.
Prices start at £100 per night.
We have street metered parking which is free at weekends.
Naomi’s beautiful Georgian town house is perfectly located in a quiet street in fabulous Stockbridge. Can’t recommend this highly enough, fabulous room, really comfortable nights sleep and delicious breakfast. Just book it, you won’t be disappointed, we will be back, thank you Naomi for being such a delightful host. Pete and Sarah
We have been staying for a few years now on and off and it has always been the most wonderful experience.
Naomi and Martin's home is beautiful as already mentioned and in a fabulous location for exploring the New Town and Old Town as well as Stockbridge which is lovely and along the Water of Leith. It is also well placed for tram, train and bus links for further afield and rich with places of interest and beauty.
Naomi and Martin are perfect hosts. Warm and welcoming making you feel truly at home. They make visiting Edinburgh very special. The delicious breakfast sets you up for the day. Cereals, fruit, yogurt and cooked Scottish. The beds comfortable and rooms bright spacious with plenty of storage and complimentary tea, coffee and hot chocolate.
We love staying and will definitely be back for another fix!
Tip: Cramond is lovely and worth a visit, the walk to the Shore from Stockbridge for seafood is fabulous (the Ship on the Shore is good), Kays Bar in Jamaica Street is great and off the beaten track!
The welcome at this edinburgh new town b& b is second to none. If you have problems with stairs then this may not be for you. But if you like superb breakfasts, cooked to order, great art in your room , good books to choose form during the evening or, best of all, people who are enthusiastic about the city in which they live then this is for you.
My boyfriend and I stayed in the room overlooking the gardens. The house is picturesque, decorated with beautiful art and warm Scottish charm. It's located on a quiet street near Stockbridge, on the river Leith which leads to the botanical gardens and the gallery of modern art. Walking distance from Princes street and the old town. Highly recommend, a perfect retreat right in the heart of Edinburgh. Will be back!
Haven of Peace
I have stayed twice (September 2011 and February 2013) at 7 Gloucester Place and, on both occasions, a business visit to Edinburgh was turned into something special. Beautiful, 200 year old house, on a cobbled street in a central but extremely quiet part of the city (only an owl could be heard at night from the recommended south-facing, comfortable and well-equipped bedroom). Naomi is a charming hostess and her breakfasts will meet any tastes. I look forward to returning!
Naomi's "double upper' in New Town is in a perfect location, about ten minutes walk from Princes Street, and recognizable as a background for Alexander McCall Smith's Scotland novels. (We were lucky enough to get a quick walking tour of the fabled Moray Place from our hostess--thanks, Naomi).The rooms are light and pleasantly furnished, the beds comfortable, and the hot water plentiful. Naomi provided a good breakfast with fruit, yoghurt, cereals, and "full Scottish" if you can manage it (which we did both mornings!). I recommend 7 Gloucester Place to you as a charming place to stay.
Charming B&B in Edinburgh 18th Century "New Town"
Well located a bit downhill from Princes Street. Naomi Jennings and her husband are very good hosts. We had the delightful big room at top of house (many stairs!). Would certainly stay there again.
This was recommended in the Guardian. Very much a family house. Elegant central and quiet. An intimate and friendly atmosphere. Not cheap but good value
This is a lovely place to stay, I was sorry to leave a cosy huge bedroom with fresh daffodils, lots of good books, tray of goodies, comfy bed and super bathroom. Naomi is a welcoming and gentle host. Her home is full of artwork, all is relaxing and gracious. Breakfasts there are super-fresh and a make for good start to busy days in Edinburgh, where everything is within walking distance. This is a good area too, for finding restaurants and pubs in the evenings, when you're ready for staying close to home.
A quiet retreat from the hubbub of the festival to the most exclusive area of Georgian Edinburgh. Sitting at a long table for breakfast (everything but starting with freshly squeezed orange juice and fresh fruit salad) Naomi listened carefully to our comments on Edinburgh Festival events and helped us chose others. Having a culturally aware hostess who is "in the know" about what is going on around was a priceless benefit. We'll be back.
This was just our sort of place. Extremely comfortable and individualistic. We appreciated the artwork and books. We had a lovely room at the back looking out over New Town gardens. Breakfasts were very good and our hosts could not have been more welcoming. The area is very interesting and all parts of the city can be easily accessed by foot. It might not suit someone who likes minimalism and de luxe bathrooms, but for us it was a home from home and our ideal for a temporary stay.
My boyfriend and I had a thoroughly great time here. Naomi was welcoming and very accommodating, and made us feel at home immediately. They have a beautiful home - and the breakfast really is delicious! I've already recommended it to friends.
Naomi, the owner, was very welcoming and helpful with ideas on what to do, where to eat and drink and with directions. Her beautiful home has many interesting paintings and artefacts. It is very comfortable and ideally located, a few minutes walk away from the 'biz' of Stockbridge with its individual shops, restaurants, bars and a high quality Sunday morning street market. It’s a 15 minute walk to Princes Street. Breakfast was lovely with fruit, porridge and a full cooked Scottish if required, or any combination. Naomi catered admirably for a gluten-free diet requirement.
Being two minutes' walk to Stockbridge and a five- to 10-minute stroll uphill to the shops and cafes of George Street. With a glamorous Georgian setting, 7 Gloucester Place ticks all the right B&B boxes, with cosy, comfortable rooms and lovely touches of classical Edinburgh bling. If you're in search of more of the latter, you'll enjoy heading to bed via a grand walnut and mahogany staircase, lit by a giant oval cupola. Architectural historians should book room two, which comes with (private) access to an amazing mustard and black-tiled 1930s bathroom.
