The guest house is family run, offering high quality bed and breakfast guest accommodation. Your hosts are Jimmy and Fiona, who will be delighted to welcome you into their home and look after you during your stay.
This beautiful, detached Victorian house has been sympathetically restored and retains many original features. Located in the historic Scottish capital city of Edinburgh, it is just over a mile from the main tourist attractions, such as Edinburgh Castle and the Royal Mile.
We look forward to hearing from you and to welcoming you to Glenalmond House. Jimmy and Fiona
During this difficult time of the Coronavirus pandemic, we are currently closed due to government restrictions. However, we are taking bookings for later this year, and also for next year on this website. We look forward to welcoming everyone back to our beautiful city and country, when this terrible virus has been defeated all over the world.
We are now preparing for opening - whenever this will be. We will post the date here once we have this information.
We will prepare to protect staff and guests from the Coronavirus. We will be providing hand sanitiser for guest and staff use, and ensure extra cleaning is carried out in guest rooms on changeover, so that they are safe for our guests to stay in. Contactless check-in and check-out is also available.
We will never charge you anything in advance for bookings made through this website. If you book and need to cancel, where movement restrictions are still in place, you do not need to accept a voucher, re-schedule or pay any deposit. Also, our normal 2 week cancellation policy still applies, so you don't need to decide until later if you want to cancel.
To all our valued guests, past and future, please keep safe and well and look after each other.
Jimmy and Fiona
