100% Sharon W - Trip Advisor - Bracknell United Kingdom - August 2014 - Amazing! We stayed here for 2 nights to explore Edinburgh. Vince and Jim are great hosts nothing was too much trouble for them. The room was immaculate with a brilliant shower and a fridge full of drinks if we needed them. The breakfast was amazing with plenty on offer. As we had to leave early for the next leg of our journey Vince made us a lovely packed lunch to take with us instead of breakfast. It's a bit tricky to find but keep following your nose you'll get there in the end. I would highly recommend this hotel. Thank you so much for a lovely stay. My only regret was I didn't stay here for 3 nights and avoided staying at Scarborough.


100% RodL - Trip Advisor - Doncaster United Kingdom - August 2014 - Peaceful break 5 Star + Room 2 was our room and we could not fault it ,it had everything you could want even a security night light that came on when you needed to visit the bathroom,but did not disturb your other half.” (rodl750)

100% Conant10 - Family - Trip Advisor - United States - August 2014 Greenlees Lodge is a home away from home! This is a must stay location, we will be back! We were warmly greeted by Vince and Jim, who were the most accommodating hosts. They want your visit to be perfect, it's evident as every detail of our stay was carefully thought out. We were brought milk and cookies on the only evening we stayed in. And each morning we had breakfasts fit for royalty! Absolutely fantastic stay! Thank you Vince and Jim for sharing your home with us! -John, Elizabeth, and Bella


100% JennyG - Couple - Trip Advisor - Knysna South Africa - June 2014 - My husband and I spent two nights at Greenlees B&B last month. We were warmly greeted by Vince & Jim and immediately made to feel at home. Excellent modern accommodation and a delicious and generous breakfast freshly cooked by Vince in their super modern open plan kitchen. Greenlees is conveniently situated to visit Edinburgh by bus. Vince goes the extra mile for his guests and we highly recommend this B&B. Jenny Gaylard, South Africa


100% AcornLeicestershire - Trip advisor - Top Marks!!!  - July 2014 - We booked our stay through a Groupon deal and what a bargain we got!! On arrival we were greeted by Vince and Jim who were both very friendly and welcoming and immediately offered us a cup of tea which was much appreciated! The house is beautiful and modern and situated on a private road in a quiet rural location. They have a fabulous communal lounge and the hosts thoughtfully provided a selection of books and tourist information leaflets. We stayed in a large ensuite room which was spotlessly clean! The bed was king sized and very comfortable. My fiancé was impressed by the smart TV and I loved the shower which was hot and powerful. Vince and Jim offered advice regarding parking in Edinburgh and even printed us some information and offered us a lift! Breakfast was served between between 8.30am-10am at the kitchens communal table. We loved this as it gave us opportunity to chat to more to Vince (head chef) as well as a another couple who were staying. There was an abundance of choice for breakfast, cereal, toast, fruit, yoghurt, cooked breakfast, pancakes and even homemade granola bar served with ice cream! I chose to have Pancakes the first morning and was really spoilt with blueberries and maple syrup, delicious! My fiancé had the full breakfast and enjoyed this too. It is clear that Vince and Jim are committed to providing guests with a high quality service and enjoy what they do. Overall a fantastic stay and we hope to come back again in the future to see Vince and Jim as they are such lovely people!!


100% GregB - Trip Advisor - Canada - June 2014 - Couple - Fabulous B&B Experience! Excellent comfortable and modern B & B tucked away in a quiet woodland setting complete with deer. Vince & Jim could not have been better hosts, offering us refreshments at any time of day or night and volunteering to drop us off and pick us up from the bus stop (which was only a short walk down the hill). The bedroom and ensuite bathroom were bright, large, spacious and spotless, as well as the rest of the house. The options for breakfast were endless, the food was high quality and we were catered to, better than in most restaurants. We were fortunate enough to meet and spend time with Vince & Jim’s family and friends, at dinner and during Quiz Night at the pub – terrific people and tons of fun! Our conversations with Vince and Jim were a blast – never laughed so much during our trip, and Vince was extremely helpful to us in organizing our limited time in Edinburgh. We arrived as mere guests, but left after 3 nights feeling more like we had stayed with good friends. We highly recommend this B & B to any and all travelling in the Edinburgh area!!


10.0 Karen - Couple - United Kingdom - August 19, 2014 Lovely location, up a very quiet narrow lane with a direct short cut to the local pub and bus stop to Edinburgh.

10.0 Jaap - Couple - France - April 23, 2014 A beautiful place, just south of Edinburgh.  Quiet. Excellent accommodation. Wonderful hosts.  Incredible breakfast.  What a great place to stay. It was an honour to be there.  A little difficult to find. They were not allowed to post signs at the road. Just continue till the end of the road.

10.0 Elizabeth - Couple - United Kingdom - April 19, 2014 - We liked the location and the very friendly and professional way that Vince and Jim welcomed us into their home.  Nothing was too much trouble and they were perfect hosts. There was nothing about our stay that we did not like. Everything was perfect.


10.0 Steven - Couple - United Kingdom - March 26, 2014 - Vince was extremely nice, helpful and just a general pleasure to have met!  I unfortunately did not meet the co owner.


10.0 Rae & Malcolm  - 19th-21st March 2014.  We had originally booked a room for one night, instead we stayed for 3.  We can truly say it is one of the best places we have ever stayed!  Vince is a most pleasant, caring and friendly host catering for, and in some cases anticipating our every need.  Both breakfast, and, if requested, dinner at night are excellent.  Greenlees lodge is in a quiet location near to Rosslyn Chapel and other places of interest in this most beautiful area. The rooms are of modern decor, are fully equipped, containing everything that you might possibly need.  Breakfasts are excellent with Vince providing attentive personal service as he also does if an evening meal is ordered in the morning.  We couldn't possibly ask for more, a truly great experience.  We have booked to return in October for Rae's 70th birthday.


9.6 Anonymous - Mature couple Australia September 8, 2013 Excellent hosts, lovely location and very comfortable beds.

10.0 Anonymous - Young couple United Kingdom February 4, 2014.  We had booked a room for one night totally by coincidence, because our business meeting was in the area. Truly we can say it was the best coincidence of our lives! Hosts, Vince and Jim are the most pleasant, caring and friendly people that we have ever meet and their B&B is EXTREMELY SATISFYING - peaceful location, modern decor, fully equipped rooms with everything that you possibly need, hospitals in this country are less spotless than Vince's and Jim's house was, tasty breakfast and very, very, very, very warm welcome! We couldn't possibly ask for more, great experience.


9.6 Anonymous - Solo traveler United Kingdom February 6, 2014 Very friendly, pleasant and comfortable. Slept very well. Excellent breakfast and a lovely place to stay. The only problem is finding in the dark on the evening of arrival. You have to just keep driving to the end of Green Lane. But this is not down to the owners - they have been prevented from putting up signs.


9.6 Sue - Mature couple Alfred Cove, Australia September 3, 2013 Modern B and B. Host Vince was very welcoming and helpful. He offers more than expected eg . cheese bikkies and drinks on arrival, offered to make sandwiches lunch next day and in addition to usual B and B fare. Will change menu to suit the guest, will even print info to you from has computer! B and B in quiet rural area only 6 miles from city. Vince even offered to pick us up at anytime should we get stuck and need a lift. Wasnt anythin didn't like about Greenlees.

10.0 Catherine - Mature couple Derby, United Kingdom March 2, 2014 Everything about it! Facilities were beautiful, couldn't have been better. The owners were friendly and welcoming, and keen to know if they could improve on anything. It was all 5 star. All tastes and appetites were catered for at breakfast. It was fortunate we only stayed 3 days, as our waistlines were beginning to expand!!


10.0 Ellen - Mature couple Altamont, United States of America March 3, 2014 The owners were both friendly and helpful. We were served a wonderful breakfast, including eggs anyway we liked. Our room and bathroom were spotlessly clean as well as comfortable. We are planning another trip to Scotland in the fall and would definitely stay at Greenlees.
