Inchgrove House occupies part of a 5 storey Georgian Town House which has been fully restored into a luxurious Bed and Breakfast, with fine and elegant en-suite rooms.

It is located in the heart of Edinburgh, just 350 yards from Princes Street, the architectural, historic and cultural hub of the city. The bedrooms are set up for either double or twin use. The en-suite bathrooms each have a bath, shower and shaver point. All rooms have hair-dryers provided. The house has full central heating, and all rooms have colour TV and hospitality tray. Wireless internet is available free of charge throughout the house.

Breakfast is served around one big convivial table where everybody joins in the exchange of conversation and information -unless you want to hide behind the complimentary newspaper.

The choice starts with fresh fruit, juice, cereals (including porridge, of course) and yoghurt, followed by the BIG SCOTTISH BREAKFAST - any combination of bacon, eggs, sausages, tomatoes, mushrooms, black pudding, haggis and cloutie dumpling. Kippers, smoked haddock, or smoked salmon with scrambled eggs are also on offer. We use Crombie's famous sausages, and free range eggs which are delivered to us direct from the Borders. We grind our own coffee every morning. Don't worry though, we also offer a good range of options for vegetarians.

Inchgrove House offers you the opportunity to enjoy a real Georgian House, great friendliness and service, all in a location a short walk away from the most famous and spectacular view in Scotland - Edinburgh Castle and the Old Town on the Castle Rock, seen from Princes Street.

How to find us

(Plane/Train/Airport Tram):

We are located very near to the centre of Edinburgh. 17A Abercromby Place (EH3 6LB) is in the Georgian New Town area, 350 metres due north of Princes Street (East End), the cultural, architectural and shopping hub of Edinburgh. See map on this site. Waverley rail station is the nearest to the house, and most inter-city services terminate there. Taxis are always available outside Waverley rail station.

The airport bus service, number 100, stops in the city centre outside the entrance to Waverley station, leaving a short walk (10 minutes) via Princes Street, St Andrew Square and Dublin Street. The airport bus service offers good value at 4 single or 7 return.

The airport tram service stops in St Andrew Square, approximately 250 metres from the house. Tickets cost £5 single, £8 return. (N.B. - ticket machines only accept credit card and sterling coins, not sterling banknotes.) Owing to the number of stops en-route the tram takes slightly longer than the bus or a taxi, but is perhaps more suitable than the bus for anyone with restricted mobility, as the buses are double-decked.

Taxis from the airport usually cost around 18-20 one way (maximum 5 persons restricted luggage space). The airport is 6 miles away and travellers should allow 25 minutes for the journey. During morning and evening rush hours the journey can take longer. We can arrange pick-ups for larger parties from 25.

We now strongly recommend our guests avoid travelling to Edinburgh by car if possible, owing to the restrictions on parking. Similarly, if you are starting a tour in the city it is better to delay picking up your hire-car until the end of your stay. We have some parking spaces at the back of the house, but when these are in use it can be very difficult to find alternative parking in the city centre and the inner suburbs – particularly during the period May–September. In many parts of the city parking is restricted to 4 hours maximum per day. There is a towaway scheme in operation.
