See what our guests are saying about their time at the Pavilion



“Our family had a wonderful time at the Pavilion, we were charmed by this beautiful “home”. We very much admired the architects and their team who were involved in this amazing project and were fascinated by the history of the building and its surroundings.

We hope to return very soon.”

— Richard & Connie, Idaho, USA

“It is wonderful to stay in this lovely house again and even though we have been staying here since 2015, we still notice new architectural features and details. I appreciate this hidden gem more each time I stay. 

Thank you Kristin for making us feel so welcome.”

— The Lancaster Family, London

“This is such a wonderful and magical venue for families and perfect for exploring Edinburgh and its environment. Thank you to Nick & Kristin for making this vacation so memorable.”

— George & Jane K.

“We wanted a place with lots of character and a convenient location and that is exactly what we got with Lamb’s Pavilion. There was plenty of space for the 6 of us with ample space for our luggage and other items. We really appreciated the heated floors and other little extras and special touches.

We would highly recommend the Pavilion, we had such a fabulous stay.”

— Iain & Sue, Melbourne

“It felt like we were visiting another age. The interior and exterior of The Pavilion is immaculate. The space really is an illustration of good taste.

The surrounding area is serviced by a range of restaurants and we enjoyed being able to stroll into Leith where life seems less orientated around the touristic buzz of the inner city.

Staying in The Pavilion was not an experience that I will forget quickly”

— Lyall & Marc, Cape Town

“The Pavilion is a wonderful find - a real gem of a house, finished and furnished to an exceptionally high standard throughout. For anyone who appreciates Georgian style and attention to architectural detail, this new build house feels as if it has always been here. Not a large house, but comfortable and practical - good beds, top quality linen, a decent size modern walk-in shower, well-equipped kitchen, very good washing and utility room, and good wifi. We loved the central location in Leith, with excellent restaurants and cafés just around the corner on the water-front, and very easy public transport into central Edinburgh (we were up here for the Festival and Fringe, and it was an ideal location). We will be coming back!”

— Sheila P

“What a wonderful place to celebrate my 60th birthday weekend. Such a comfortable, stylish little house with everything we needed.

We really appreciated Kristin’s generosity with leaving basic supplies (and not so basic wine and shortbread!) and taking the time to show us around her beautiful home. Leith is a fascinating area to explore and we love the 22 bus! If only London buses were that frequent! ”

— Jill. R

“I loved everything about this house; spiral staircase; underfloor heating, quality bedding massive shower downstairs and the open fire. The house was spotless! Little things like tea , coffee, milk , dishwasher tabs and a made up fire made a huge difference. Thank you guys - we had a ball!!”
