Wondeful Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely wonderful stay in this apartment. The place was very clean and comfortable. The owners were extremely responsive when we asked a question about a missing drying rack one evening and the next morning a new one was delivered. I must also say the shower pressure was amazing. The location cannot be beat. I know where I will be staying when I find myself back in Edinburgh.

A Perfect Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

We spent four days here in November 2016. The location is excellent - on the Royal Mile, but just below the busy part where you have to watch out for cars hitting you. There are really good cafes and pubs nearby, and walking to major sites is easy as they are all close. The apartment is very clean and comfortable. We would definitely stay here again.

I enjoyed my stay at this convenient little flat. The 35 bus stops practically outside the front door, and that is very handy for the airport, as well as other locations. The flat was clean and quiet, and the location on the quiet end of the Royal Mile was great. Everything was within walking distance. The flat is supplied with everything you could need for a self-catering stay. I would definitely stay here again.

Convenient location

  • 5 of 5

Very nice apartment located on the Royal Mile. We enjoyed our 2 nights there; small but plenty of room for the 2 of us. Communication with Neil, the owner, was great and his directions on getting to the apartment and gaining access were spot on. We would definitely stay there again.

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

This was our 7th visit to the Fringe Festival & we are still not tired of it. The apartment was in a great location being quite close to the main attractions but lower down from the Royal Mile so less people around and shortcuts to get to where we needed to be.

The apartment was easy to find and follow the key instructions for entry. We had everything we needed although we ate out every day so can't vouch for the cooking facilities except that they are there if you want to use them.

Only downside was the loud music that comes from the souvenir shop below as it starts when the shop opens & finishes when the shop closes but as we were out all day most days we didn't feel bothered to complain.

A great find and thank you for supplying us with such good comfort.

Owner's Response: Having investigated the noise complaint, we have been unable to confirm that the neighbouring shop were producing the noise. We feel that a residential neighbour /visitor / tenant may have been responsible. We are sorry for the disruption that they may have caused you.

On the Royal Mile, the apartment is ideally located for exploring the City of Edinburgh. Within 200 metres of both Holyrood Palace and the Scottish Parliament building, it is a perfect base for sightseeing on foot.

Alternatively, Edinburgh bus tours pass outside the building and are the ideal way to see the city and the major attractions during a city break.

Almost all of Edinburgh's main attractions are within easy walking distance, including the Castle, museums, major galleries, Festival and Fringe venues, and Arthur's Seat and Calton Hill. There are many places to eat and drink close to the property.
