Classic cobbled street in Edinburgh's laid back West End
About Andy Murray
I've been involved with property in Edinburgh for 12 years and have always loved Georgian and Victorian architecture with all it's grandeur! I have renovated and upgraded many original Edinburgh properties but the 'Snug' is my first Holiday Apartment and I absolutely love it. I live a short walk down the hill from the apartment in an old townhouse in Stockbridge with my wife Rebecca and our 2 little boys. If I ever need a quiet sit down I sneak off to the Snug and hide!! My father in law is a famous Irish poet (Michael Longley) and my sister in law is a well known Scottish/Irish painter and most of the books are Michael's collections and the art on the walls are Sarah Longley originals or sketch work from her bigger collections. Also, if you'd like a kilt made whilst you're here - my brother in law is a kilt maker!!
Why Andy Murray chose West End
The West End of Edinburgh is a hidden gem of a place, full of boutique shops, delis, coffee shops, proper pubs and restaurants and it just so happens to be less than 5 minutes walk from Princes' Street. It's such a great location that as soon as I saw the apartment I knew it had to be shared! Doing interiors is one of my passions and I was able to cut loose on the William Street Snug with Georgian colour schemes and gorgeous Scottish tartans and tweed textiles and original Georgian walls are ideal for hanging great art!

A fantastic location
This beautiful apartment is just stunning! We felt comfortable from the second we walked in.
You can get to anywhere in Edimbourg very quickly. And the restaurants and boutique in the neighbourhood... just great! I highly recommend this apartment: the best I have seen in my last 6 years of travelling.
I would come back to Edimbourg anytime!
This apartment was gorgeous and spacious with easy access to the Royal Mile and Princes Street as well as Leith walk and the modern gallery in the other direction. Lots of thoughtful touches like games and books (including for kids), and everything was well-kept.
Wonderful, spacious apartment!
Great apartment in a good locations near many restaurants. Beautifully decorated, even better than pictures! Plenty of room for 5 people. Very clean. We would stay again.
A terrific place to stay in Edinburgh
Our family loved our stay at this flat in Edinburgh. It's in an area with several good pubs / restaurants / shops, and is close to town. The flat is nicely decorated, and very clean and comfortable. Check in and out was simple and Andy was always available to answer any questions we had.
Great location and a great place to have fun....lots of great things to do near the Snug. Would book there again!
An excellent apartment and location- but unfortunately ,a few problems.
The apartment is beautifully furnished and tastefully decorated . It is extremely comfortable and feels very cosy and relaxing. The artwork is lovely and the fringe posters add a very nice touch . However we did have a few snagging issues that slightly dampened our over all very positive impression of this lovely apartment. The shower thermostat was not working properly and the water was barely lukewarm - the pressure really was very low so it only dribbled out . We also felt that there needed to be a book with instructions and guidance as to what to do if, for example , as happened on our last night at 4 am - the CO2 alarm went off . We had to hunt for it first - not knowing what it was, and then remove batteries to prevent the whole block from being woken up ! The internet was very intermittent - and kept cutting out which was surprising and frustrating - and the Tivo box was inaccessible - so we weren't sure if we would have been able to record a programme that we missed when we were out . ( Again instructions would be useful.
Sorry to sound a bit negative , but when you are paying quite a lot for 4 nights you could do without these problems - the shower especially. Having said all that we really liked the flat and loved the area ( which we already know very well ) and would certainly consider going back if these issues were resolved.
This is a gorgeous Georgian apartment in the heart of Edinburgh's laid back West End, situated less than 5 minutes walk from Princes' Street. The flat is beautifully decorated and is packed full of Scottish fabrics, original Scottish paintings and drawings, warm colours and heaps of personality. It's a great base from which to explore Edinburgh on foot, and once you're worn out from a great day of shopping or sightseeing there's a fab kitchen in the apartment and a wood burning stove for a cosy night in. For the more energetic just dump the shopping bags, get the 'glad rags' on and walk a few hundred yards to some of the best bars and restaurants that Edinburgh has to offer. After a few nights here you're almost guaranteed to feel Scottish and you certainly won't want to leave!
