The Town House

Edinburgh Castle dominates the city skyline and can be seen rising above the roof tops as you start a fifteen minute walk into the Old Town or Georgian New Town (post 1760).

Below the Castle is Princes Street; Edinburgh’s main shopping thoroughfare on which all the high street stores are located.

To the North and running parallel is George Street on which the designer brands have established a particular niche.

Whether sightseeing or shopping, the Guest House is within easy reach on foot or by public transport and it is the ideal accommodation for a business or leisure stay.

Located only 200 metres from the King’s Theatre, the property is at 65 Gilmore Place.

By clicking through to our photo gallery to view the Victorian-tiled hallway, large drawing room with its ornate cornice, all the individually designed bedrooms with luxury en-suite facilities, you will begin to appreciate the loving restoration work that has gone into creating The Town House Guest House. Constructed in 1876 as The Manse (Minister’s house) for the adjoining Church the house consists of 3 floors.

The bedrooms are situated on the first and second floors and secure private car parking for all guests is located to the rear of the house.

A skillful mix of modern and period furnishings enhanced by stylish decor makes for a very warm and comfortable stay.

The Town House has five guest rooms.

These are situated on the first and second floors of this Victorian property. All are individually decorated to the highest standard with particular attention being paid to the en-suite facilities.

The single room’s en-suite facility retains the original Victorian style. In the Twin Room you can stand in the shower and view the stars through the glass roof.

The other double rooms feature double showers and finishes in Italian tiles. All have a supply of ‘fluffy’ towels and Scottish fine soaps.
All of the bedrooms have been individually designed by the proprietor and feature high quality carpets, fabrics and furnishings. Some have over-bed canopies to add that special designer touch.

Fresh flowers are always on display in public areas.
