This luxury Bed & Breakfast Edinburgh was delighted to receive a lovely email a few weeks ago informing them Barony House had been nominated for a ‘Thistle Award” from the Scottish Tourist Board in the category of “Most Hospitable B&B/Guest House”. They were shocked but went through the necessary steps to register and go along to the awards ceremony:
The big night finally rolled around and we were proud as punch to just attend the evening and soak up the atmosphere as a finalist.

THE AWARD NIGHT IN PICTURES:
There was a Magician…
Dinner and of course champagne….
…and then this happened!
We are both still in shock and are tremendously honoured and humbled to win such an accolade. Running a small luxury bed & breakfast Edinburgh / Luxury Guest House is a labour of love and to have this kind of recognition was a very emotional and personal experience for our family.
Many thanks to all for your continued support. Ultimately we are just an ordinary working family sharing this beautiful city and community with the world. We don’t consider ourselves outstanding, we focus on remaining true to our core values of warmth and the love of life.
We want to dedicate this award to all the working families in the world. Our love to all. Susan, Paul and family xo

Built in 1887, Barony House – a small, luxury bed & breakfast Edinburgh, has been lovingly decorated by Susan’s own hand, in honour of her famous ancestor – John Ruskin. John Ruskin, with Turner were pioneers of the arts and crafts movement where Susan has taken inspiration for some of her designs. Susan then hand-made the bed heads and designed and hand painted friezes around the house. Above all, her designs remain sympathetic to the arts and crafts era.
There is common lounge access and an honesty bar set in a traditional club room design. A flat-screen TV and tea and coffee making facilities are provided in each of Barony House’s light and airy rooms, all designed to a luxury standard. Toiletries and a hairdryer are also included.
