“Excellent, central accommodation.”
Reviewed 26 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay - apartment had everything we needed and was very comfortable and central to all amenities. Lots of very good eating places within 5 to 10 mins. walk.
Welcome pack very much appreciated.
Would definitely stay at Greyfriars again if we return to Edinburgh in near future.

Perfectly situated, clean and comfortable for two. Across the street from the museum, two blocks from the Royal Mile, a short downhill stroll to Grassmarket.

“Perfect base for Edinburgh trip”
Reviewed 24 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Comfortable and very well equipped accommodation in central Edinburgh. Easy access and apartment is light and airy, with good views of Greyfriar's Kirk. Close to many visitor attractions and good restaurants - ate at Vittoria's and Mother India (both 5 minutes from the apartment) and would highly recommend both.

“Lovely flat...great location!”

Really enjoyed our stay in this flat. Perfect size and had everything we needed except for a tea cosy! Lovely location, can walk everywhere to see loads of the sights. Lots of places to eat...we can recommend Lucano's over the road for a fab breakfast; Peter's Place on Middle Meadow Walk for their amazing pastries - both within less than 5 mins walk from the flat. Soba on Hanover Street great for dinner too. The flat itself was really tastefully kitted out and really nice to have a dishwasher too! It'll be first on our list for future Edinburgh stays...

“Perfection”
Reviewed 30 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

I rented this apartment on my second stay in Edinburgh..it was very welcoming with milk, bread and butter waiting! The kitchen window looks out at Greyfriars and it is a great view! I really enjoyed my 4 days there and I do hope to go back to Edinburgh in Sept and would book this apartment again! This apartment is very central to anything touristy that you might want to do and you can walk anywhere.....

“A home away from home”
Reviewed 7 December 2013 for a stay in November 2013

We arrived at the Greyfriars flat after a long day of travel and what a delight it was to walk into such a cozy and comfortable home away from home. The flat is tastefully refurbished with all the amenities of modern life while retaining the charm of old Edinburgh. It has a great location too. I would unreservedly recommend this flat. it is a real gem.

Amazing apartment. Central, cosy and spotlessly clean. The landlord is very friendly and helpful. I was surprised to find he had left bread, milk and some perishable for me which was a very nice touch. I would hope to stay here again. highly recommended
