“A lovely experience”
Reviewed 4 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

4 of us stayed in Duncan's Land as we were going to a wedding. It was clean, light and well decorated. The bathroom was modern and the shower was hot and powerful. There were games provided and in the afternoon we played board games in the lounge. Duncan's Land is in a really lovely part of Edinburgh - near the water of Leith and some excellent independent shops. All communication with the owner was pleasant and fast, and getting the keys on arrival was really efficient. I thoroughly recommend this accommodation.

“Second Stay-Perfect”
Reviewed 30 April 2014 for a stay in March 2014

This was perfect again....I stayed in September 2013. This time I brought my family with me and they were equally charmed! It really is within perfect walking distance to everything ...The apartment feels like coming come after a busy day of sightseeing...the hustle and bustle is left behind the moment you walk into the garden...I hope to be back soon!

“Didn't want to leave this 'home from home'”
Reviewed 4 April 2014 for a stay in February 2014

A beautifully presented home which charmed us from the minute we arrived. We wanted for nothing (other than more time!) Morag couldn't be more helpful and had left easy instructions for absolutely everything. A great location which is only a 10-15 minute stroll from the city centre, yet it was quiet enough to sit out on the bench in the evening with a brew and appreciate the beautiful little garden. We had a great breakfast at Leo's Beanery just up the road and after a particularly wet walk home from Murrayfield, we tried the Thai restaurant downstairs - can't get a closer take-away! If we come back to Edinburgh, this is where we'll be staying!

Liked best: The cosy atmosphere....it felt like home!
Liked least: The chaotic road system because the tram system is being installed - nobody's fault, but very confusing!

“Excellent”
Reviewed 30 December 2013 for a stay in December 2013

Here I am; it's 6pm and dark outside. The TV is on and it is our third night of our stay. The apartment is very well put together, renovated and kitted out very well. Google earth gives the impression that it is further away from New Town that it is. It is situated in a really lovely area near New Town. Nearby are excellent pubs and restaurants and even while recovering from a broken ankle from 2 1/2 months ago, I was able to walk about to venues and the Old Town. The property is a bit tricky to find, however, we checked it out on Google Earth beforehand.

The apartment is very clean, hot water works...yay and Morag is very easy to communicate with and very informative and helpful. Yes, yes, I know other reviews have mentioned the person upstairs being a bit noisy as he walks about, but Morag has spoken with him, and really, I think this is just a part of these really old buildings.

“Fabulous place”
Reviewed 18 November 2013 for a stay in November 2013

We really enjoyed our weekend at this apartment - the building was full of character, lovely little garden, apartment was cosy, very clean and attractive, had everything we could want - plus a welcome basket of milk, bread etc that was really appreciated. The area was so good - got parked easily on Friday night, short walk up to Princes Street or loads of lovely little shops and restaurants locally. Will definitely be back

“Superb location and premises”
Reviewed 1 November 2013 for a stay in October 2013

In Edinburgh for Edinburgh v Munster rugby match - the result was not good but the accommodation was great. Magnificent exterior and a just-the-job interior with the right balance between traditional and modern. Spotlessly clean. Unobtrusive host. Great locality. Good shops around the corner. Nice walk to Princess St. A lovely place to warm the cockles and remember fondly.
