About Marjorie Hamilton
Creating stunning, comfortable holiday homes and rental property in prime locations has become a passion. I love to meet and greet guests adding the personal touch to make sure everything is provided to make for a perfect stay; from personally dealing with bookings, providing reassurance and information prior to your stay and being available 24/7 to deal with any additional requests. A successful career in media and property development have freed me to pursue my writing and painting and leaves me available to ensure you have a lovely stay in my beautiful city centre town house.
Marjorie Hamilton purchased this House in 2006
Why Marjorie Hamilton chose Edinburgh
Location, location, location! And an opportunity to enjoy this very special fully renovated and superbly finished city centre listed building. See Hamilton House Video at http://www.youtube.com/embed/SFhCElt5oEI?rel=0 And lifestyle - Stockbridge is the village in the city. Voted the third best place to stay in a recent Times newspaper article - The Top 30 places to stay in the UK.
What makes this House unique
There simply isn't another property to match this one. See Hamilton House Video at http://www.youtube.com/embed/SFhCElt5oEI?rel=0 The unique aspect? A large fully furnished roof terrace surrounding a glass rooftop conservatory with partial glass flooring, high above the village of Stockbridge in the heart of Scotland's beautiful capital. What's not to love? I fell in love with it and everyone who stays does so too.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Perfect house and location!
Couldn’t have asked for anything better.
Marjorie was very responsive, easy to work with and accommodating.
Lovely Deck and Sun Room, Refuge in the City
Overall, we were very happy with the property. Loved the neighborhood...15 minute walk to New Town, 25 minute walk to Castle area. Away from the tourists and loud bar scenes. Quiet cafes and shops. Appreciated the easy to use in-unit washer/dryer. Loved sitting on the upper deck and in the sun room (the highlight of the property). Modern decor. Plenty of kitchen wares and lots of seating at the table. Beautiful lighting accents throughout.
Be aware that there are 4 floors to this property, so if stairs are an issue, then this could be a problem. You will hear city noises- sirens and traffic, but not the wild nightlife. Like any city property, if the blinds are open, you will be seen by many. We loved staying here and would stay here again if we had the opportunity.
Everything was as advertised! Market across the street made shopping a breeze. The condo was beautiful with every thing you need to make your stay perfect.
Margi was wonderful to work with and checking in was very easy. The condo itself was.beautifully decorated and excellently cared for. Safe neighborhood.
Thank you so much for choosing Hamilton House for your stay in Edinburgh. As a ‘new nanna’ I just love the whole basis for your trip/stay. Your lovely grandchildren and your total approach to holidaying with them - just love it.
So happy to have had you guys stay. Do hurry back. And if another adventure takes you and your lovely grandchildren to bella Italia do ask - the most lovely beach house awaits you. Hugs marji
Showing my girlfriends where I used to live
Accomadation was fantastic. Brilliant to have an outdoor area to sit. The views are amazing. Everything was to a high standard, kitchen, bathrooms, bedding etc. The location is fantastic , a short walk away from Princess Street, or a choice of busses that you can catch even late at night. We had a fantastic time, after a hectic busy day it was lovely to come back to a warm comfortable fashionable house. The art work is amazing
I’m Just delighted that you enjoyed Hamilton House and your time immersed in tranquil Stockbridge in the heart of the city.
So lovely to meet you, to welcome you..... and I look forward to welcoming you back ( with the special returners discount 😉)
Until then, hugs 🤗 and best wishes Gillian et al mx
Our stay at Hamilton House was wonderful...everything we wanted to see was within walking distance or a short Uber ride away. The house was very comfortable and the roof top had great views of the city. The house is surrounded by restaurants, pubs and great thrift shops, which we loved shopping in. A great neighborhood to walk around as well. Marji was very responsive to any questions we had and Christina, the caretaker was welcoming and helpful. We hope to return to Edinburgh again and will definitely stay again.
Absolutely delighted that you and your family had such a lovely time staying at Hamilton House ( especially the outside rooftop space and views ). So pleased you enjoyed the magic of Stockbridge - a charming village boho chic and deliciously creative atmosphere right in the heart of Edinburgh. Very happy to hear that you will return to explore further; so many fabulous bistros, wine bars, specialist and award winning food shops/restaurants, and always a rental discount for returning guests.
Ciao for now Marji
Very state of the art. An amazing place to stay!
We had a fab long weekend ! The owner was really helpful and the property itself was in a great position . The bedding is lovely and soft and the beds themselves were really gorgeous.
I couldn’t recommend this place highly enough .
Delighted that you and your friends enjoyed your stay at Hamilton House, Jean. Always wonderful when guests appreciate the special things we like to offer. Looking forward to welcoming you back, and as always a discounted stay for returning guests. Thank you for booking. Cheers Marji
Voted third best place to stay in the UK in The Times newspaper Top 30; Stockbridge is the village in the heart of Edinburgh.
Perfectly located for 'walk to work' in City Centre or Edinburgh's Financial District, Hamilton House attracts Corporate Guests seeking short term stays of weeks or months.
International Guests love this stunning four storey famous listed building with its City Chic interior. Edinburgh Festival and Fringe Visitors love this luxury property with large decked roof terrace for relaxing in quiet moments just a step away from all the main events.
For Golfers it is a relatively short, scenic, comfortable (and if preferred) chauffeur driven 'Drive' to Scotland's major golf courses; St Andrews, Muirfield, Gleneagles etc.
Hamilton House is ideally located to totally indulge the bustling world famous Edinburgh Festival and Fringe Events, New Year Street Party Celebrations. major Scottish sporting events; rugby and golf (Ryder Cup in 2014, Scottish and The Open in 2015 ) and holidays exploring Edinburgh's beautiful historic Capital City. And at the end of the day wander for 5 mins through local cobbled streeys to relax......in Hamilton House in Stockbridge - 'the village' in Scotland's Capital City. Luxuriate in the stylish and sumptuous quality contemporary finishes and furnishing in this totally refurbished famous 'listed' building.
Enjoy breakfast al fresco on the terrace or in local cafes famous for great cappucino and excellent eating. Strolling distance to and from all city centre festival and fringe events. Hamilton House is surrounded by galleries, cafe/bistros and some of Edinburgh's best restaurants, local specialist fish, game, cheese and wine shops. It is truly a beautiful village located on 'The Water of Leith' in the heart of Edinburgh and a short stroll through Inverleith Park to The Botanic Gardens.
Grocery shopping open all hours only a few steps away.
Easy walking distance (about 10 mins) Princes Street, (7/8 mins) West End, ( 15-20 mins) The Royal Mile and Edinburgh Castle. About 5 mins in the other direction is Inverleith Park with access through to the Royal Botanic Gardens. A local bus trip to Crammond Beach or the Pentland Hills extends the attractions.
It is the perfect location to explore Edinburgh on foot and Scotland by car. A luxury car hire service with drop off/pick up at the door or airport; self drive or chauffeur driven - as you please.
However you choose to spend your day and your evening you always have the option of wandering 'home' for a rest or spending an evening off from the activity having a BBQ and dining outside, or inside on the glass floor of the rooftop conservatory. On sunny days soak up the all day sunshine on the large roof terrace. After long Festival/Fringe days, soak away the day in the luxury bathrooms with extra large free standing baths, sleep in a king-size bed wrapped in top quality bedding. Or sneak up the spiral stair and sleep in the rooftop conservatory under the stars.
Step into the drench shower.....and start all over again.
Note that this property can be hired for corporate drinks/gallery evenings. Quality finishes, an oiled American oak floor throughout, state of the art lighting LED and spacious open plan areas (away from the bedroom area) make it ideal. If you would like to consider extending an invite to guests while you are there, this can be negotiated and staffed to ensure your enjoyment without worry about the property.
This is a top end property likely to appeal to a couple, a family, a group of up to three couples ( three spacious luxury doubles and two full bathrooms ; one en-suite ) who would look for a 5 star hotel in the city centre but want the flexibility of their own space in Central Edinburgh in close proximity to all events, theatres, venues. Those seeking luxury, escape and tranquillity when they end their busy day. People who appreciate high quality fixtures and furnishings. It will suit their family/friends; even an extra person or two little ones if they are happy to sleep under the stars in the rooftop conservatory bed settee ( Ligne Roset and very comfortable!). Added in 2014 the complete 'Baby Set'; travel cot, high chair, fisher price activity chair, buggy, baby bedding, baby towel, dishes/cutlery :-) so cute.
Hamilton House originally a much valued family home, houses a collection of interesting artwork; giving a gallery feel to the open plan spaces.
The guest bedrooms and bathrooms along with large open plan living dining area ( with minstrel gallery to the art covered stairwell) combine to make this very special city centre townhouse stunning, very comfortable and extremely sought after.
'It is always a delight to meet and greet my guests, to see their reaction to this stunning property as they take in room after room, and especially as they step out to the roof terrace where the spectacular views allow them to marvel at the village location and proximity to landmarks.' Marji
