About the space

An elegant Georgian upper townhouse on Albany Street in Edinburgh’s New Town.

On entering, guests arrive into a grand hallway, with a spiral staircase leading to the upper townhouse.

You’ll find the living areas on the first floor. There’s a bright and spacious kitchen-diner opening out on to an impressive drawing room. There are doors that can separate these rooms. Or, leave them open to make a wonderful space for entertaining. Both the kitchen and lounge are fully equipped. The drawing room is complete with grand piano (not tuned!) and comfortable sofas and chairs. A small utility room adjoins the kitchen, which families can also use as a playroom.

On the top floor, there are three large double bedrooms, one of which we can make up as a twin room, if required. The master bedroom has a king size bed and a stylish and generously sized ensuite bathroom with roll top bath. This room has a wonderful outlook across the Firth of Forth and over to Fife. And off the hall, there is a further family bathroom with bath and shower.

This luxury self-catering townhouse in Edinburgh has 1 king room, 1 double room and 1 twin or double room. So, it would be perfect for families and groups of up to 6 people.

And it’s just a short walk to the beautiful Scottish National Portrait Gallery. Edinburgh Castle and the Royal Mile are less than a mile away and easily accessed.

In the opposite direction, and also within walking distance is Stockbridge. A popular area with a village feel, situated on the Water of Leith and home to the Royal Botanic Gardens.

Rented the townhouse for 1 week in May 2017 for stay with our adult children (5 people total). There was plenty of room and everything was perfect. The townhouse is in great location and had everything needed for our stay. We really liked the local area with plenty of shops, restaurants, coffee shops and pubs nearby. The old city is easy walking distance as well as easy airport access via tram. I would absolutely stay here again and recommend to anyone visiting Edinburgh. <br /><br />We rented a car for our stay and it was somewhat inconvenient to find parking nearby. There is a public parking lot about 1/2 mile away that cost ~18£/ day. <br /><br />It was not an issue at all for us but as this is a townhouse there are many steps to get to the main floor and bedrooms.<br />

Guestbook reviews

'The house is beautiful, the toy room is a great touch as someone safe for the children to go, and Lorna very kindly put on stair gates and a cot for us. The location is great for getting into town- a few minutes walk or £4 in an Uber. It’s very comfortable and well equipped.' Katie

'We stayed 3 nights at this beautiful flat. It was exactly as advertised and had everything a guest could need. It is a lovely place in a very convenient part of town. Magda is very welcoming and informative. Ceilings are high and the stairs case is as long as it is lovely. I would caution against staying here with elderly or young guests. However, most travelers will find this to be a perfect respite from busy days.' Kristin

Wonderful home in a perfect location. Walking distance to major sites. Lots of local cafes shops and pubs. We really got a feel for living in Edinburgh. Cooked in, ate out, and enjoyed the beautiful yet comfortable living space. Magda was very helpful. The national museum is a 'must see'. I highly recommend this home.

We stayed here with our family of 5 including two young adult children and our 13 year old. The townhouse is in a great location and walking distance (within 25 minutes) to all attractions. with restaurants, great coffee houses and a natural food store in the neighborhood. The townhouse has all your basic amenities and a comfortable living room for relaxing at the end of a busy day. It set the mood for Edinburgh being in a beautiful historic property with a big spiral staircase.

Elegant Albany Street Townhouse, New Town, Edinburgh

Our stay at Albany Terrace was terrific. A beautiful period property with all mod cons. Very comfortable and superbly situated for the centre of Edinburgh, with the benefit of a quieter space to stay... We slept 6 of our family very comfortably..and there was so much space! Comfy sofas great kitchen layout - and the icing on the cake was for me the grand piano The greeter was very friendly and helped us with an earlier arrival time.... nothing was too much trouble. Wonderful play room, so little children are made welcome also. Would definitely recommend this lovely home for short or longer visits. Thank you Lorna for the opportunity to have a lovely short break in your home Chris and Simon Harris

It's a beautiful apartment in a perfect location at the heart of Edinburgh's New Town and easy walking distance from all necessary amenities. All the practical arrangements worked perfectly and we had no need to contact the host during our visit. We'd definitely consider returning.

What a wonderful experience this was! It surpassed our expectations and we really felt at home in this beautiful house. The staircase is stunning and the bedrooms, and living area are so spacious. We cannot find anything negative to say about the house nor the area. It is quiet and safe and yet within 5 minutes there are amazing restaurants and little shops!

“This place was every bit as beautiful as the photos suggest. High ceilings, lots of light, acres of space. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes and supplies, and the bedrooms were spacious and comfortable. It was well-placed for the festival; a short walk to the center of town, but far enough to be out of the mayhem. Highly recommended! ”

Amazing place so much space with a great living space. So close to the centre of town which makes it a great place for site seeing and enjoying Edinburgh's night life. Lorna was really helpful and accommodated all our little requests.

We didn't meet Lorna but her substitute was nice. The property was gorgeous! We have always admired Georgian architecture so to stay in a Georgian house was a real treat (beautiful windows, large rooms and stunning staircase). Edinburgh is a wonderful city! It is full of things to do and see and of course full of shops. Lorna's house is right in the middle with everything close at hand. We loved it! Thank you Lorna.

Elegant townhouse so close to all the attractions of Edinburgh- exactly what we were looking for. A problem with an internal door was attended to within hours of reporting it. Kitchen was a little under equipped which made self catering a bit tricky but with so many fab restaurants nearby we were very happy.

My family of five thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this comfortable townhouse. It was far enough away from the bust tourist areas but close enough to walk to everything. I definitely recommend it to anyone considering staying here.

We book this trip as a surprise 60th Birthday present for my Mum. All 6 of us had the most fantastic time in Edinburgh, and staying at Lorna's house made it even more special. The house it stunning and in a great location. Kitchen is well stocked with equipment. Everything is on your door step we couldn't have wanted anymore from our trip. We can't wait to come back.!

We loved the central location. The house was fantastic and very comfortable. It was spacious and airy. It was spotlessly clean. It was a real pleasure to stay there. My husband loved it as it was near all the galleries. The grandchildren from America said that it was awesome.

Elegant Albany Street Townhouse, New Town, Edinburgh

We stayed at their house for the weekend. Upon arrival we met the housekeeper who was a very lovely person and she greeted us and gave us a tour of the house and about the facilities. The house is very nice and nicely and tastefully furnished. Everything was perfect and location is amazing. 5 mins walk from Waverly station and princess street. Even though it's 5 mins away from the main tourist attraction, the neighborhood is quiet and very safe. The property itself is very nicely maintained and has a lot of character. I was in two minds of getting a hotel instead but I am very glad that I rented this beautiful house instead. I highly recommend this property for a comfortable and posh stay in Edinburgh. Ta

Lorna met us upon arrival and made us feel very welcome. She had arranged for milk and other necessities to be available which was a welcome touch. The bottle of red wine was also appreciated! The flat is in a classic Georgian terrace with high ceilings and huge Windows which flood the place with light. The lounge is huge and comfortable and the kitchen area more than adequate for breakfast before tackling the sights of this fabulous city. The bedrooms are large and comfortable with some interesting dips in the floor which reflects the age of the building. These quirky features add to the experience rather than detract and overall we were delighted with our stay.

Our family stayed at Lorna's house for four nights last week and enjoyed the stay and visit very much. We really appreciated that Lorna was flexible in meeting us in the house although we were badly delayed by the traffic. The house was beautiful and everything we saw in the pictures on the website was exactly what we saw in the house. It was very nice and thoughtful of Lorna to contact me a few days prior to our visit and share a link on various events that were taking place at that time in Edinburgh. We felt ever so welcome and even a bottle of nice wine, biscuits, jam, milk and butter were there for us in the fridge!! I was slightly worried if the house was warm enough due to its size, but it was just perfect!! There was even a lovely kids play room for my little daughter and she absolutely loved the toys ( especially a big Pirate boat!! :) )The location is great, close to Princess Street and the Old Town. Some of my colleagues already asked about our experience and I would definitely recommend Lorna's house to them.

We have stayed 6nights in the very beautiful house. Lorna is very nice, gave us quite good advices on local market and good restaurent, which we really enjoyed a lot. She is also very quick to respond to our text, help us to fix the light problem in time. The location of this house is superb, 10mins walk distance to the Edinbrugh railway station and the main street as well. It's very convenient and good for family or friend stay during vocation.

'We were welcomed at the apartment at the agreed time, and shown through. This is a very comfortable town home with all amenities that you would wish to have including a very spacious lounge complete with baby Grand. We were in the heart of Edinborough, but far enough from the bustle of city life, yet close enough to local neighbourhood restaurants, pubs, food stores, haifressers for the ladies etc. The apartment is acurately described, cleanly presented and will not disappoint.'

'We absolutely loved our stay in Edinburgh with Lorna. She was a very accommodating host - wine, milk, biscuits, maps on arrival - and extremely helpful in pre-planning for the Fringe festival. The flat was clean, spacious, great for kids (playroom and gates for the stairs, and more than met our expectations. The location was less than a 10 minute walk from the train station, so you can't beat that. Definitely recommend visiting Edinburgh and staying here next time you visit. We hope to do so again some time.'

Lorna is the perfect host: available and always trying to make your stay perfect. She gaves us a lot of good tips and addresses in Edinburgh. The townhouse is incredible: very clean, exactly like on the pictures. Lot of space and a playroom with toys and books for the young kids. It is centraly located, 5 minutes walk from the train station and surrounded with lots of good restaurants. Great place to stay in Edinburgh. We recommend it, absolutely loved it!
