"Our party of nine aged 3 to 62 years enjoyed our stay in this beautiful home. The local pubs were great for a good hearty meal after a long day sightseeing. You can walk to Edinburgh Castle in about 30 minutes. Great location would definately recommend this home to other travellers."

"My husband and I shared this apartment with another couple. The apartment was clean and spacious. It had everything we needed for our stay, including coffee, tea and a fresh carton of milk. The bed in the master bedroom was comfortable. When sharing housing with other people, it was really nice to have 2 1/2 bathrooms. I would recommend this apartment to anyone."

No need to shop around, you just found the perfect Edinburgh house
"From my initial enquiry to the whole experience, this fantastic, old merchant's house in Gayfield Square couldn't get much better. Fantastic location, close to pubs, restaurants, supermarkets, great coffee (try Artisan in Broughton St) and all just a stroll to Princes Street. You will love the genteel location, quality furnishings, linen and great gourmet kitchen. It is beautifully done and managed by owner Robin, who is extremely responsive and helpful. Robin makes great suggestions for eating out, which we did our best to get through during our four day stay. You won't regret making the decision to stay here."

"We rented this flat during our visit to the Fringe festival this year. It was a bit of a hike- at least 25 minutes to the main venues, but we truly liked being out of the fray since we were there for 9 nights. The apartment is lovely- high ceilings, beautifully decorated and enough kitchen supplies for the light cooking we did in the am and an occasional lunch. We really liked the fact that the owner also provided soap for the laundry and dishwasher, the sink and bathrooms and a nice welcome package of local specialties. Tea and coffee were on hand and the basics which was so appreciated! so hard to stock everyone's apartment when you are traveling. We left goodies in return- Olive oil, nice shampoos from hotels etc. The front room was a bit noisy on the cobblestone street but we were grateful for the extra bed as the two other bedrooms in back have queen or king sized beds. The neighborhood is quiet with upscale restaurants and small markets are easily accessible. This year it was a rainy Fringe, but the days that I didn't feel like walking in the downpour I was happy staying at the apartment and working as it was peaceful and charming. The owner was lovely and accessible via email and Natasha (apartment manager) was readily available, though we never had to call her! The WIFI worked very well, and the neighbors were fairly quiet (and we returned that favor to them!). Would go back in a heart beat! I would recommend this for people who like to walk and are respectful of furniture and high end apartments. I would not suggest this for young children as there are delicate lamps and it is a quiet building- also the walk would be too far for them- but the park is close! Well- behaved teens are great here as they usually don't mind the walk to center of Edinburgh either. Ideal for active older people. Taxis cost about £6.50 GBP to the castle area up on the hill."
