“Perfect location”

We travelled overnight from London on the Caledonian sleeper & as the property had been vacant Derek arranged immediate access & met us there. We were also able to have use of the property later on our last day too.
The property was immaculate & everything was in working order. The welcome pack was great too.
If you want to be close to the main sights/attractions the location is perfect. Several hop on hop off buses stop outside the property. The castle is a 2 minute walk. Princes Street shopping is about 5 minutes as is the train station.
Would highly recommend the Royal Edinburgh bus ticket (package).
Our thanks to Derek for making us welcome.

“Wonderful apartment in a perfect location!”
Reviewed 1 November 2013 for a stay in October 2013

A lovely, modern, well-appointed apartment in a perfect location on the Royal Mile. The space was ideal for our family of 4 and we loved being able to walk everywhere and to stop back as we needed to during the day. We will highly recommend the Lawnmarket apartment to friends and hope to have the opportunity to return.

“The nicest place and perfect location!”

This was an excellent place to stay, very centrally located. Lots of room for our big group of 10 between both apartments. The apartments were very clean and comfortable. Working with Catherine and Derek was so easy and I couldn't have asked for a better experience. If I ever go back, I am going straight to Pillowstops. They were more than accommodating and so nice.

“Memorable Edinburgh Fringe Visit”
Reviewed 28 August 2012 for a stay in August 2012

Our accommodation on the Lawnmarket could really not have been any better. It was spacious enough for our needs, and tastefully decorated. We immediately felt at home in this wonderfully located apartment. The high street was vibrant and buzzing with the usual Fringe entertainment, some of which we could view at leisure from the apartment window seats. Noise? Yes, but then that's to be expected given the location. Hotels are not any different, and we find the best solution is a good set of earplugs which work wonders in any location. Would we go back? Yes of course.
