Why Joanne chose Bruntsfield

Simpson Loan is part of the prestigious Quartermile development just off Lauriston Place and less than a mile south of the city centre. It is set within a cosmopolitan mix of stunning luxury apartments, vibrant cafes and thriving businesses.

In an unrivalled location within the city’s world heritage site, everything Edinburgh has to offer is within easy reach and it is perfectly positioned to enjoy the wealth of entertainment, dining and superb shopping of Scotland’s capital city.

Situated on the edge of beautiful ‘Meadows’ park, the property is in an enviable position with lots of open space right on its doorstep, but with historic tourist attractions such as the Grassmarket and the Edinburgh’s Old Town just a few minutes walk away you really have the best of all worlds. The apartment is also a stones throw away for business travellers working in the central business district or at the University of Edinburgh.

Fashionable George Street and the West End, with their cosmopolitan bars, restaurants and bespoke shops are close by and also within walking distance is the city’s cultural quarter including the Traverse Theatre, Lyceum, Usher Hall, Cameo and Filmhouse independent cinemas as are the trendy cafes and boutiques of Bruntsfield and Morningside.

The ‘Quartermile’ development itself offers numerous facilities including Peter’s Yard Coffee House, a 24 hour PureGym, a bar/restaurant (called No. 8 Lister Square which has great reveiws), a Starbucks coffee shop and a Sainsbury’s supermarket.

Great place, great location

Being almost on Campus was great. We saw our Granddaughter almost daily. The apartment for a one bedroom was so bright and spacious. We will be back

We really enjoyed our stay in Edinburgh, here is what is great about this apartment:

- Exactly as pictured, decor is very soothing and the bed was comfy

- Very easy check-in and check-out

- Nice quiet part of the city but still close to grocery and restaurants.

- Easy walking distance to Old Town and The Royal Mile especially once you learn a few shortcuts

- Conveniently located to bus stops

- Communication with Joanne was great, it was nice to know she was there if we needed her but wasn't intrusive either

We were very happy with our choice of this apartment and highly recommend. Thanks Joanne!

Perfect to see it all!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been happier with our stay. Very clean, very convenient to everywhere we wanted to see (We walked to Edinburgh Castle, Royal Mile, National Gallery, National Museum of Scotland...everything!) There was a safe and clean public garage down the block for 16 pounds per day (not cheap, but parking is difficult) and a nearby grocery store and coffee shop for everything that we needed. Just perfect!

Awesome apartment in a perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Joanne's apartment during our first trip to Edinburgh. It is a very nice condo - great layout, nice building. It was an absolute perfect location - great amenities for food and coffee shops right across the street, and walking distance to old town Edinburgh. We will absolutely look to stay here again if/when we return to Edinburgh.

Joanne was fantastic to deal with. She was flexible with check in and out times to accommodate our flights, and she is very responsive. She also has built in very little complexity to access her apartment when you arrive. Thanks Joanne for everything!
