Overview

Property Details

Updated: Nov 17, 2014
Apartment, 2 Bedrooms, Lounge, Study, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

Located right in the city centre, this apartment is an ideal choice for a city break in Edinburgh. Situated on the top floor of the building, (third floor), it has two bedrooms, two bathrooms, lounge with dining table, fully equipped kitchen and also a lovely little study with a great view of Edinburgh Castle. Furnished beautifully throughout, it is a calm and relaxing home from home, right in the middle of the city.

The twin bedroom is at the front of the apartment and has a bathroom (with bath and shower) just beside it. The double bedroom has a bathroom (with shower only) next to it also. High quality linens, towels and hairdryers are all provided.

With a wonderful castle view, the study is a perfect place in which to relax or write some postcards.

There is a three night minimum stay throughout most of the year. During August and over the Christmas and New Year period there is a four night minimum stay. The apartment is strictly non smoking and is not suitable for children under ten years old.

WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE!

  • 5 of 5
We were in Edinburgh the week of the Independence vote, and were right in the center of things. Susan was wonderful to deal with, and the flat is located perfectly for first time visitors. Across the intersection from the National Gallery, a short walk up the hill to the Royal Mile, near restaurants, shopping and transportation. We will be visiting again.

Girls getaway

Susan, thanks so much for such a comfortable place to stay! It was exactly as described! We especially enjoyed the central location,were able to walk most places we wanted to visit, and were close to our tour meeting spot. The 4 days we spent in Edinburgh were not enough! Your hospitality and assistance upon arrival, and help finding a cab to the airport were much appreciated. I would certainly recommend your lovely flat to anyone making the trip. Sincerely, Ann

Convenient central location

  • 5 of 5
Four friends visited Edinburgh for 5 days and loved the central location of this flat. It was cheerful, tastefully decorated, and comfortable. It was up 3 flights of stairs, but worth the climb one up with suitcases. Loved view of Edinburgh Castle. It made a perfect central place to branch out on tours and really get to know Edinburgh by walking easily to train station and many historic places by foot. Totally enjoyed!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a nice review. I'm so pleased that you found the central location good for all your exploring - it's great to be able to pop back and rest for a while if the sightseeing is proving just a bit too tiring! It's wonderful when our guests are happy so thank you very much for your feedback. We hope to be able to welcome you back at some time in the future. Best regards

Perfect Vacation Experience

  • 5 of 5
A group of four 60+ women spent 5 days in this lovely apartment exploring this beautiful city. The location enabled us to walk to the old town, frequent shops, markets and restaurants. Susan(owner) and Dave(manager) could not have been more approachable and gracious about any questions we had. We were even greeted with two dozen roses and champagne! Booking the apartment could not have been easier and the communication via phone and email with Susan made her feel like a friend from the beginning. The apartment was clean with many modern updates and well appointed with all we needed for our stay. I would definitely stay here again when in Edinburgh.

I'm delighted that you made so much of your trip to the UK and covered all the ground that you did. We hope to be able to welcome you back at some time in the future, if you ever have the time to explore more of our country. Enjoy the rest of your summer. Best wishes Susan

Great location for Edinburgh holiday

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I accompanied our daughter to Edinburgh for a week before she started her term at University of Edinburgh this month. We found the flat to be very spacious and comfortable with all the amenities we needed, and we couldn't ask for a better location from which to explore the fantastic city sites and it's lovely people. Susan and Dave are so helpful and friendly, they make you feel very welcome. We look forward to visiting Edinburgh again soon and staying at this "home away from home."
