“Good apartment, good location, good people”
Reviewed 8 May 2015 for a stay in March 2015

The apartment is perfectly located by St. Giles with easy access to all the attractions of the royal mile. It is well appointed with all the things you'd need and expect for a self catering city break. Dave was great meeting us and showing us around. I got a late booking so the value was excellent. Wifi worked well, with the windows closed street noise was minimal, heating was fine. There isn't really much at all to fault it on. If you don't do stairs there are probably better options and if you don't like bagpipes but do want your window open perhaps there are alternatives more fitting. All in all a very good place to book.

“Location location location”
Reviewed 5 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

This apartment is in a fantastic location. The castle is a short walk away along with all the old town attractions. We came via train and it was a 5min walk (uphill) from the station. The lounge of the apartment has so many windows all with amazing views! We could hear bagpipes all day everyday which was a lovley addition to our 'Scottish' break! The apartment is on the thrid floor and there is no lift. (Not uncommon with these old buildings) it was fine for us carrying our bags up but worth baring in mind. If I come back to Edinburgh I would not hesitate to come back and stay in this apartment!

“Fantastic city centre apartment”
Reviewed 23 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Was in Edinburgh for three days and wanted to stay in an apartment to offer us a bit more space, facilities and value for money than a hotel. Dealt with Glenn by email who set up the booking for us and Dave in person when we arrived in Edinburgh. Both made everything as simple as possible for us and were very friendly and professional.

The apartment itself is wonderful. It is up 3 flights of stairs but offers great views from its corner position up the Royal Mile towards the castle and over St Giles Cathedral. It has everything you need for a stay and has a very nice interior. Even on a rugby international weekend, noise from the Royal Mile was minimal and we both slept very soundly. Highly recommended.

“Loved this apartment!”
Reviewed 3 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

This lovely apartment is SO well situated we could sit in the living room and be serenaded by bagpipes from The Royal Mile below. The Statue in front of St. Giles across the street looks almost straight in the windows, windows that offer views, views, views. The entire apartment is very bright and quit large. It is well decorated. We loved the hard wood floors. While the couches are slightly weather warn, they didn't bother us a bit. The building is charmingly old, and you will feel like a local staying here. I can't imagine a better place to stay to enjoy such a wonderful city! Even if you want to spend the evening in you are still in the midst of it all!

“Fantastic Apartment and Location”

I loved the location of this apartment. It is very centrally located in the Old Town. The furnishings and apartment are beautiful and very comfortable. Will definitely stay here again when I return to Edinburgh.
