We really liked our stay. Could get the key even though it was after 11 pm (late flights arriving). Apartment had everything we needed, perfect location close to restaurants, the castle and everything, nice views from the breakfast table, nice little bathroom, nice little bedroom, the kitchen was well supplied (we cooked one night and baked eggs in the morning), we could use tea and coffee. Only thing is that a dining table misses, we ate at the breakfast table, you could just squeeze in a second chair which was perfectly fine for us (you have nice views!) but if you're older (less flexible) or fatter I can imagine that it is a bit smallish. But we didn't mind so I give this apartment 5 stars!

“Great Little Flat, Superb Location, Lovely View”
Reviewed 6 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Loved the flat... just the right size for 1 or 2 people. I am convinced that the 83 steps (which we navigated a record 6 times up and 6 times down on one of the days) was the reason I didn't gain an ounce during my stay, despite eating the absolute worst (but most fun) diet imaginable! Wifi was great, and the flat had everything you could need for a short stay. There was even a garlic press in the kitchen. If there is a kitchen utensil beyond that you feel you need on your short breaks, you are too ambitious in your cooking plans... eat out and enjoy yourself! Thoroughly enjoyed the views over the kirkyard and the city skyline. EVERYTHING is easily accessible from this flat, either by public transport or just by walking. We pretty much did the whole city by foot, only taking the tram on a couple of occasions. Mum's over the road is a great wee place to eat, especially breakfast. Make sure you take the City of the Dead tour (which has a little office/shop in the kirkyard). They are by far the creepiest and most entertaining. Ask for John... he's amazing! Thanks, Graham... hope to be back again soon!

Liked best: Central Location, View
Liked least: Stairs, and had a little bee problem on the last day. Graham noted that the bee people had been called, so may not be an issue any longer.

“very well located”
Reviewed 3 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

In the center of Old Town, close to bus stops and one of the University campus, this flat is a good choice for those who want to move by foot in Edinburgh. The flat had everything we needed to our stay.

The thing we liked least was the frequent presence of wasps entering by the lamps openings on the ceiling, although not too serious (around 4 each day), it became a little annoying.

“Perfect Little Gem”
Reviewed 30 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Cute and clean flat, has everything available for a comfortable stay. The stairs can be challenging after a long day but not as bad as we planned for. Graham and Jane were welcoming and have thought of everything for their guests! The views are stunning and the flat is central to all touring destinations...we loved it!

“hidden gem”
Reviewed 20 September 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We loved this apartment tucked away in the heart of the old town. The stairs are the only negative for this well equipped flat but well worth it for the views when you get to the top. Lots of restaurants in the area and very close to greyfriars and meadows.. Would we go back ? Yes if we wanted to stay in this part of town definitely. Good value for money

“Great place in a fantastic location”

person found this review helpful

It is a nice flat and we felt right at home. The living room was bigger than we expected, but the bedroom was quite small. Great value for money, especially for the location. We woke up to a beautiful view everyday. The only issue we had was that there were occasional wasps coming through the ceiling, which Graham did mention when he gave us the keys (we had about 5 for the five days we were there). Other than that, we had a fantastic stay.

“Home away from home... Close to everything.”
Reviewed 16 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

I stayed here with my best friend and we loved it and are actually coming back for another 5 days.

The flat couldn't be more conveniently locate as it is close to all the sights in old town. The bed very comfortably sleeps two. The kitchen makes travelling more affordable as we could prepare many of our meals instead of dining out all the time.

And you do get used to all of the stairs up to the flat!

Overall we were very pleased with this flat and would certainly recommend it to others.
