14 Hart Street

Bed & Breakfast

Friendly hosts, Georgian elegance, welcoming sitting room and bedrooms, tasty breakfasts: the perfect city break in Scotland’s capital


3 rooms


Rooms sleep 2


The brightly lit Georgian house has a smart front of polished brass and glossy paint. The warm raspberry hall is lined with art, and the graceful dining room is just as inviting: decanters on the sideboard, period furniture, glowing lamps, and a welcoming home-baked something. Fresh bright bedrooms are elegant and comfortable with whisky and wine on a tray and smart, sparkling bathrooms. Wake for breakfast at a beautifully polished table, with plenty of coffee, newspapers and chat; James and Angela are easy to talk to and love having guests to stay. Perfect for a peaceful city break, and Princes Street is a five-minute walk.

Just a delightful place to stay! Great hosts, delicious breakfasts, and very clean and tidy. Also, very secure. Thank you James and Angela. Definitely stay with you on my next visit.


We stayed here for 3 nights in a very quiet but central area. Our hosts were brilliant, the bed was very comfortable and breakfasts were excellent. Our hosts were very helpful re: restaurants, and there are some very good ones in the area. We are looking forward to a return visit. The tray of goodies, tea, coffee and wine was a nice touch, shame we do not drink whisky! The tram from the airport is cheap and reliable, ending just a 5 minute walk from Hart St, as are the buses, but It was easy to walk to so many sights. We loved the house and Edinburgh, thank you so much for a memorable visit.

Cette maison est un havre de tranquilité à deux pas du centre ancien d'Edinburgh. Fantastique ! On peut tout faire à pieds et quand on rentre, on trouve le calme, en ce qui nous concerne la vue sur un petit jardin romantique, un très bon lit dans une chambre très confortable et cerise sur le gâteau un petit verre de whisky ou une tasse de thé accompagnée de shortbread ! Le propriétaire est discret et présent à la fois, très serviable et prépare de savoureux petits déjeuners. Merci encore pour votre chaleureux accueil ! Nous avons tout apprécié.


James and Angela greeted us on arrival. They were very helpful and the place had a really homely feel. Our room was great. Really comfy bed, awesome shower, shortbread, wine and whiskey on arrival. Shortbread and drinks were replenished for day 2 as well. The breakfast was fantastic. We had a full Scottish breakfast both mornings with additional toast, jams, fruit, yoghurt, choice of cereals and mini pancakes. The room, the shower and the breakfast made it very hard to leave! Highly recommended. Very close to all amenities, bars, coffee shops and restaurants.


We stayed two nights having two rooms for my wife and 11 year son. Super location - quiet yet very easy to access all of Edinburgh. Tram will make this even better. James and Angela were great hosts, very helpful, knowledgeable and providers of excellent breakfasts! Lots of good restaurants and delis nearby too. We'll try to rebook when next in Edinburgh.


We had a wonderful two day stay here with some friends. Everything was superb - the welcome, the rooms and the breakfasts. James and Angela were so helpful with anything we wanted to know and couldn't have been nicer. The location is wonderful - so central. 14 Hart Street will definitely be our first choice of a place to stay next time we return to Edinburgh.


Just had a wonderful birthday weekend away at 14 Hart Street – James & Angela (& Louis!) were brilliant hosts, with great recommendations of things to do, and really helpful tips on back-streets routes to see more of the city. They were never intrusive, but went out of their way to make us feel really relaxed – even when we were asking for breakfast at awkward times! The house itself is lovely and very central. I would heartily recommend this to anyone staying in Edinburgh.


Friendly,well lit room in attractive Georgian townhouse. Hospitality with excellent freshly cooked breakfast to order by James. Very central location,would always consider visiting in the future if ever in Edinburgh


Very pleased ! Rooms were lovely and scotch and wine nice treat. Breakfast was excellent and delicious. Great help in finding good places tonneau in the evenings. An ideal place to stay when visiting Edinburgh !


It can't get any better! Angela and James should be the example how to run a B&B. beside the fantastic room and service it was their loving, kind attitude which made our stay exceptional. Asking for extras never seemed to be a problem at all. Breakfast cooked by the Chef himself was served with humour and great ease. Thank you James. Thank you Angela....Eddie/Switzerland


From booking right through to the end of our stay we were made to feel most welcome by James and Angela. The house is a Georgian treasure right on the doorstep of the New Town. Plenty of pubs and restaurants nearby too. The room was beautifully decorated. The bed was really comfortable and the bathroom was small but spotless with a great shower. The sink was very small and was a bit of a challenge to use but a minor inconvenience. To top it off, the whisky and wine were lovely touches. Special mention must go to the fantastic breakfast - quite possibly the best I've had in a B&B.


We chose this accommodation partly because of the central location. Angela and James are so friendly and welcoming and their house is beautiful. On a cold March weekend it was convenient, comfortable and cosy. The breakfast is super - quality ingredients prepared perfectly. We will be recommending a stay at 14 Hart Street to any of our friends planning a visit to Edinburgh


What do you require from a B&B in town? First of all, location- that everything will be within walking distance, but at the same time, to have the feeling of home. Angela and James' B&B completely answers all of the above. 5 minute walk from Princess Street and the museums. You feel privileged to stay in their beautiful and opulent house, and their advise and tips as what to see and where to eat were spot on. They are very attentive, and even if it is your first time, you feel that you've known them for years and that you'll return as one returns to visit old friends.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from James & Angela Wilson

  • 14 Hart Street lies at the centre of Edinburgh - within the New Town and a short distance from the North Bridge and Princes Street.
  • The great museums, galleries and historic buildings of the city can be reached easily and happily on foot, and we are an ideal base for the Edinburgh Festival and international sporting events.
