You will be able to use the kitchen dining/ room whenever you want to make tea and coffee. A light breakfast of cereal, toast, tea, coffee and juice will be left on the kitchen table for you every morning.

I’ll give you a set of house keys on arrival so that you’re free to come and go as you please.

Interaction with guests

I'm a self employed architect and work from home. I live here with my grown up son Eddie and, occasionally, his girlfriend Ellie and her (very friendly) collie dog, Max. You might also see one of my other sons Jack and Joe who both live in London but visit from time to time.

I will meet you on arrival and be very happy to spend as much (or as little) time with you as you want to make suggestions about where to go, what to see, good places to eat etc. I can also help with ongoing travel arrangements such as booking train/ bus tickets, lodgings etc if required.

I will also leave a welcome pack in your room with some ideas on interesting things to see and do in Edinburgh during your stay

Other things to note

We are on the first floor with no disabled access or lift
We have an occasional collie dog lodger (my son’s girlfriend’s dog, Max) who is very friendly but is not allowed in your bedroom.
We are as flexible as possible on check in / check out times and will always try to figure out a solution that suits all parties.
There are on-street Pay and Display parking restrictions in operation during daytime hours Monday to Friday.

Selby has a wonderful flat close to New & Old Town (20 minutes walk). The room is big and the whole flat is so comfortable. We totally enjoyed our time and recommend to stay at Selbys place.

Selby is a fantastic and thoughtful host and his apartment is so lovely and cozy. Stockbridge is super walkable and there are plenty of food and drink options in the area, but the centre of the city is very easy to get to on foot as well. I would definitely recommend staying here if you prefer to stay in a quieter area that is also close to the centre of the city.

Lovely flat in a quiet neighborhood within walking distance to the sights in Edinburgh. Selby is a warm and welcoming host, available to answer questions about the city. Loved that breakfast was set out in the morning. Overall, a great place to stay!

My wife and I had a very nice stay at Selby's. We were only here for one night, but it was all very comfortable. Selby is a very good, caring host. And it's certainly in a nice part of town. We would certainly consider coming back.
