About Derek Gibb
Pillowstops is run my husband and wife team Catherine and Derek Gibb. "As a family we have used self catering properties around the world for our own holidays and know how important it is to make sure that when you arrive you are not disappointed with your choice of holiday accommodation. The two main areas of disappointment that we have found are location and standard! The apartments that we offer are situated in Edinburgh's no 1 historic tourist street being the Royal Mile and our apartments are maintained and cleaned to a very high standard exactly as we would want to find ourselves when going on holiday. We look forward to welcoming you to Edinburgh.

Awesome location and all the comforts of home. Having the kitchen was particularly awesome!
You could not find a better location! We were able to walk to all of the sites we wanted to see very easily. The apartment itself is very well equipped and clean. There was nothing missing here at all. Honestly, stop looking and book this place!
Perfect location and layout!
We can't say enough about how much we enjoyed this wonderful apartment- everything was so clean and nice. Derek was great, very accommodating. The apartment is directly across from St. Giles. Perfect location to explore the Royal Mile and beyond.
