“Spacious apartment close to all amenities”
Reviewed 6 March 2011

Booked at short notice but communication confirming booking and location was excellent. Tips on how to leave the station very helpful as lots of building work at Waverley. Despite arriving slightly early we were greeted warmly and given a tour of the flat and its features such as free internet connection.
Couldn't fault the flat's cleanliness and facilities, more importantly everything worked. Plenty of hot water and very responsive heating system for cold nights. Very close to Royal Mile and Princes Street.
Would definately stay again and recommend to friends

The location is great. The apartment was clean, comfortable and well-equipped. It even had an ipod dock. As comfortable as any hotel but better to enjoy a few glasses of wine before a night out. I would definitely recommend it and would stay again.

lovely apartment, very clean and spacious,with all amenities, excellent location as you are just of the royal mile so everything is so close by yet it is also surprisingly very quiet, great for a family with young children as it is very child friendly, would also be good for friends holidaying together. we were made to feel so welcome by the lovely owners who gave us a very warm welcome. will definately be back

Stayed at Atholl Brae with 3 friends on a pre-Christmas city break. The apartment is very well situated just off Royal Mile, within easy walking distance of the Station and city centre. The apartment is modern, clean and very well appointed and comfortable. It creates a home from home experience with everything you could possibly need for a short break. The owners kindly ensured that we were met by their daughter and all facilities explained. They were easy to contact and extremely helpful both prior to our arrival and during our stay.
I would highly recommend this apartment for anyone visiting the beautiful city of Edinburgh and will definately return.

The experience of staying at Atholl Brae was nothing short of excellent from the point of booking through to the actual stay. We were helped with travelling from the airport, to recommendations as to what to do at the weekend (we were lucky enough to go to an international Rugby match). We were warmly greeted upon arrival, and the whole stay was a very positive experience.

There were 5 of us, and the flat was easily big enough and had all the amenities you would expect and more. The location - if you are visiting central Edinbugh - is nothing short of perfect, with close access to shops, sight to see, and pubs/bars/restaurants.

All 5 are considering coming back again, and we would bring our respectives and would have no hesitation either staying at the same facility again, or recommending this to any friend.

Close to all the action & easy to walk to many locations. Unit is well set up with everyone you could ask for. Noisy neighbours (out of the control of owners) made it difficult for sleeping, but they were enjoyng themselves!!! Would use this property again if in area.

Hi there
Thank you for taking the time to post this review.
As you so rightly say, though, neighbours are out of our control, as indeed our guests can be. Generally both of our apartments are quiet - but, of course nowhere can guarantee this.
When you come back to Edinburgh, come back to Atholl Brae! Happy New Year!

Excellent location, just two minutes walk to the Royal Mile. Very well equpped kitchen and the living space was inviting to relax in. The flat was clean when we arrived and service for arrival and departure excellent. Instructions for using flat were clearly communicated. Easy and secure car park - great. Our party of four all enjoyed a wonderful 3 days in Edinburgh.
