Guestbook comments from the manager

"Edinburgh in the winter!"

Our stay was fantastic and our apartment was beautiful and comfortable. The

view on to the park each morning was perfect for starting the day, watching

students, runners and cyclists pass by. The location was well suited to our

friend working at Mercy Core, and each day we walked all over the city to enjoy

the castles and historic sites.

The food in Edinburgh was fantastic and as a vegetarian I was delighted with

the abundance of fabulous- meat free foods available at really good

restaurants. There is a market next to the apartment building which offers

wonderful and fresh foods,many daily newspapers, and also a coffee shop is

right there too.

Finally, the people in Edinburgh are lovely!

This apartment on the Quarter Mile was perfect in so many ways. It was clean, modern and well stocked with everything we needed. The location was excellent - walking distance to all of the places we wanted to see, close to the bus stops, grocery restaurants and Starbucks right out the front door, beautiful views of the The Meadows, quiet and we always felt safe (which was important for 2 women alone). The owner was very responsive and met us on our arrival to show us around and how everything worked. She even had fresh milk in the fridge, some shortbread and butter too.

We had a fantastic visit to Edinburgh - the weather was amazingly pleasant all week - and it was always so nice to return after our long days to this lovely apartment. So happy we found it!

Stayed at this great flat for our first trip to Edinburgh. Location was just fantastic. Conveniently located to all the City has to offer and the view from the living room of the Meadows was beautiful. Comfortable, modern, clean (with washer and dryer), and spacious. On the bus line and within walking distance of the train station, museums and the Royal Mile. Owner was very accommodating with our arrival time. Highly recommend.

Fabulous Apartment!

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying at this Quartermile flat during the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in August 2010. It was a fantastic location. Most of the places we wanted to see were within walking distance. The views were gorgeous, and it was fun to people-watch over the Meadows. The flat was immaculate and very bright and airy. There was lots of room for 2 adults and 2 children. There were plenty of good restaurants close by, and it was handy to have a grocery store within the complex as well. Would definitely recommend it to others, and we hope that we will have the chance to stay there again someday.
