Your B&B Hosts
Gill and Paul opened their family home to guests fairly recently, already fully au fait with Wolsey Lodges as Paul’s mother ran a popular Wolsey Lodge luxury B &B for many years. Paul has a number of other property/hospitality businesses in the historic Old Town and they both enjoy entertaining, travelling, property restoration and interior design - an area where they have obvious flair. They are wonderful hosts who will happily advise Wolsey Lodge B&B guests on restaurants, local amenities, golf courses and other places to visit.
An ideal B&B when visiting Edinburgh. The city positively teems with excitement during the festival, but also has much to offer the rest of the year. Museums, the castle, zoo, botanic gardens, historic guided walks, golf, theatre and fabulous restaurants are just a few of the numerous activities available. And of course, it is the perfect springboard for a trip further north to discover the Highlands.
