Our Reviews


“The Chaumer Abide is a piece of pure Scottish heaven in the middle of New Town Edinburgh - a magical escape into a lush, rich space filled with endlessly thoughtful details. The design took my breath away, from the linens to the decor to the welcome whisky. All this and I slept like a baby! The staff was ceaselessly helpful, warm, and kind, instantly making The Chaumer Abide near impossible to leave. Cannot recommend highly enough.”


“We really enjoyed our stay here. The room was so beautifully decorated and very much in keep with the magic of Edinburgh. We would recommend it to anyone else visiting - particularly couples. The experience was very much a time capsule!”

“This is your fantasy Airbnb!  It cannot get better than this: Gorgeous interior decoration, a real treasure, and hosted by the nicest people in the universe (super responsive and easy to contact)! This place is truly special and perfect in every way: super comfortable bed and furnishings, sparkling clean, tastefully decorated: you will feel right at home, at home that is, if your "home" is a spacious but cozy room in a Scottish "castle," The décor is magnificent, the location perfection, and the hosts are the loveliest people! Beautiful antiques, spotless shower with massive showerhead and great bath products.  A large armoire has drawers and space for your clothing. In my case, they allowed my very well-behaved miniature poodle to stay too---and provided her with bowl and bed and access to the private garden. The hosts' future plans include a tea-room/cocktail room downstairs, so perfection only gets better!!! This is certain to be a highly sought-after property: make your reservations early!”


“Michelle, Karen and her assistant were fantastic hosts! Having told Karen that I was proposing to my girlfriend this weekend, she did everything she could to put me at ease, from the complimentary wine and whiskey to a stunning room to allow us to enjoy our weekend in Edinburgh. Accommodating our two small dogs at last minute. I can’t thank everyone enough for being able to allow me to make this a weekend my fiancé and I will always remember. Incredible location only minutes away from speciality coffee, independent brunches and speak easy bars. Best Wishes!! And good luck with your Tearooms!!!! David and Sophie.”
