The Airlie Guest House is a listed building, part of a Georgian Terrace. It is totally non smoking and personally run by proprietors Peter and Fiona Flynn.
We are located on an excellent bus route only 1 mile from Princes Street. Buses pass the Guest House every few minutes.
Our aim is to offer comfortable accommodation at affordable rates. We can accommodate our Guests in a variety of rooms including, single, double, twin and family. Most rooms have en-suite facilities and all have a wash basin, tea/coffee making facilities, digital television, central heating and secondary glazing. There is a WiFi hot spot and a computer with Internet access.
Our large private car park at the rear of the house, takes the worry out of parking, making The Airlie an ideal base for business travellers, or visitors wishing to explore the wonderful City of Edinburgh.
A full cooked breakfast is included in the price and is served between 8am an 9am daily. If you would like a copy of our menu please contact us.
Check in is from 11.30am until 8pm although we may be able to accommodate arrivals outwith these times so please ask. Check out is 10am.
On arrival you will receive a set of keys, allowing you access to the Guest House and your room at any time.
We are only one mile from the High Street, where the Castle and Holyrood Palace are located; you will also find St. Giles Cathedral and several small museums there.
Just a short walk from the High Street is Princes Street, where you can take bus tours of Edinburgh, visit the Scott Monument, enjoy a walk through Princes Street Gardens, or do a bit of shopping.
A five minute walk from the Guest House, will take you to the Royal Commonwealth Pool and Leisure centre, where there is an Olympic size swimming pool, children's pool, diving pool and keep fit facilities.
Continuing past the Pool, you will enter the Royal Park and be able to see Arthur's Seat, which you can climb and enjoy the magnificent views of Edinburgh available from there.
Alternatively, you could drive up to the top, (my preference) and enjoy the views the easy way.
Close to the Guest House, there are a variety of eating establishments, ranging from a wonderful Indian restaurant, to Chinese, Thai, Italian, bistro food, pub grub and fish and chips.
