Wir waren für zwei Nächte im East Hermitage B&B in Edinburgh. Mit vier Personen hatten wir zwei Zimmer und ein Bad in unser eigenen Etage. die Zimmer waren super liebevoll eingerichtet, und unsere Gastgeber waren klasse. Abends konnten wir unser Frühstück für den darauffolgenden Tag auswählen. Eric hat uns gute Tipps über die Stadt gegeben. Wir kommen sehr gerne wieder. Es war toll.

Super verblijf. Met 2 oudere zonen, zij een kamer, wij een kamer, beiden zo ruim en met goede bedden. Heel schoon, heel mooi ingericht en het huis van zichzelf, prachtig!
Heerlijk ontbijt door deze o zo lieve gastheer Eric. Hij kookt een heerlijk ontbijtje waar je bij zit en geeft antwoord op al je Schotland-vragen. Dankjewel voor deze super plek met parkeerplaats en park voor de deur en zowel de stad als de haven op loopafstand!

Eric ist der geborene Gastgeber: freundlich, hilfsbereit, humorvoll und aufmerksam. Die Zimmer sind gemütlich und praktisch eingerichtet und alles ist sehr sauber. Beim Frühstück hat man die Qual der Wahl und es ist fein und frisch. Vom Wohnort aus fahren diverse Busse in die Innenstadt.
Wir fühlten uns sehr gut aufgehoben und können dieses B&B nur empfehlen.

Ha sido una estancia en Edimburgo realmente fantástica. Muchas gracias Eric por hacernos sentir como en casa y gracias por toda tu amabilidad y cordialidad. Ha sido un placer haberte conocido. Las habitaciones eran realmente confortables, limpias, ordenadas y cuidando hasta el más mínimo detalle. Los desayunos eran abundantes y exquisitos. La casa estaba localizada apenas a 20 minutos andando del centro histórico de la ciudad junto a un extenso parque, en una zona muy tranquila y apacible. Siempre guardaré un grato recuerdo de este viaje

Die Zimmer waren sehr hübsch eingerichtet. Bei Eric ist alles sehr sehr sauber. Das Frühstück, welches inklusive ist wude uns da unser Flug sehr zeitig ging sogar zu einer fast unchristlichen Zeit bereitet. Sehr sehr lecker. Jederzeit wieder!!!

Fijne B&B!! Kamer was schoon en netjes net zoals de badkamer. Ontbijt word prima verzorgd en smaakt perfect. B&B is makkelijk bereikbaar met de bus. Eric mailt netjes welke bussen je allemaal kan nemen. Een prettig verblijf en zeker aan te raden als je naar Edinburgh gaat.

Our stay in Eric's B&B was really marvellous. The house is located next to a small park, getting into town from there is very easy - there is a bus stop only a few meters away. The house is very tastefully and lovingly decorated. Thus, you feel at home there immediately. Each of us got his/her individual breakfast every morning. Eric is a really nice and caring host and it is a pity that there are only five stars to give ... we could easily have given six :-). We would definitely book at his B&B again, it is an absolutely recommendable place!

We had a brilliant stay, bedrooms were lovely and great location with bus stop right outside to get into Edinburgh town centre. Eric's breakfast was fantastic and he was always on hand to answer any questions we had. Would stay again and highly recommend.
