    Property description
    Condo/Apartment – 
    2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 5
    This beautifully presented city centre apartment sits opposite the Queens Residence at the Palace of Holyroodhouse at the foot of the Royal Mile, and only a few metres from Scotlands controversial Parliament Building. It is on the 3rd and 4th floors of a block housing 4 flats, surrounded by shared gardens.

Almost impossibly, for its location, you have your own parking. A short walk places you at the heart of 1200 years of Scottish History (most of it gory).

5 of 5 stars Reviewed 30 January 2013 for a stay in January 2013

Recently stayed with a group of friends. Fantastic location, within walking distance of train station and all the sights. Apartment very comfortable for 5 to stay in, very clean and well kitted out. And there's even a spree book provided to give you discounts in local restaurants etc. A fantastic place for a weekend trip to Edinburgh. more

Stayed here with my boyfriend and have to say that for the money it was very good. When we first pulled up outside I was a little worried but needn't have been. The apartment was 1 of a block of 4 served by a central stairwell which was clean and well lit. The location was perfect, a stones throw from... more
