“Great stay ... Again!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 November 2012

We stayed here for a week during our last trip to the UK in 2010 and were very impressed with it then, so we booked again this year and stayed for six nights in October this year … we were similarly impressed. This is an excellent apartment / hotel within 10/15 minutes walk from central Edinburgh and has a well stocked Tesco Express and a couple of cafes / restaurants only two minutes away (and an excellent chip shop!). Very comfortable, well designed apartment and fitted with everything you will need and all in working order … also the welcome pack was generous.

Two very minor criticisms - the (lack of) pressure in the showers and the excessive charge for parking, but don’t let these detract you from staying here, overall it is very good apartment and good value for money.

We will definitely stay here next time we are in Edinburgh.

Some wonderful comments and it is always particularly gratifying to hear from repeat guests. I look forward to seeing them again soon in the near future and in the meantime I will have our maintenance department check out the pressure in the showers.

Very well maintained, clean and comfortable three room apartment with excellent location. 5 min walk to the nearest grocery shop, 10 min walk to the Royal mile and Princes Mall and 20 min to the Edinghbour castle. Stayed there for three days last Nov. Very satisfied with the place

Brilliant value: huge apartments and really friendly staff. The rooms are clean, well-decorated and very comfortable. Better value than a hotel of comparable standard and much more space. And they have smokng rooms"

A fantastic choice: just a shame that the wifi connection, whilst reasonable, relates to just one device.

Many thanks for such a positive review and I am thrilled to read that you had such a good time at the Holyrood Aparthotel - I note that you were unhappy with the wifi charges so I will look at these again in the New Year to ensure we are competetive.

A spacious two bedroomed apartment on The Royal Mile. Excellent condition with two bathrooms a well equipped kitchen and a good dining and lounge area. Nice touch was fresh milk in the fridge with coffee and tea on the work top. No need to rush out for supplies. Built in washer/dryer and dishwasher with a full oven and fridge. Secure parking a bonus.

The apartment for 2 people has 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a nice size living room and all the necessary amenities (including washing machine), dishes, etc for 100 pounds. Huge space compared to most places for the same price and a really good location - a minute walk to the bottom of the Royal mile.

Room Tip: I'd ask for a room on the 5th or 6th floor (there are elevators) as the floor boards do make qui...

This apartment was just great, complete with washer/dryer, full kitchen, lounge/dining and 2 bathrooms. With 7 of us we shared 2 apartments so had plenty of room. Very clean and extremely quiet location although handy to restaurants and a 24/7 superette. It was also only 3 minutes walk to catch the bus for the sights of Edinburgh and a short 1 minute walk finds you on the Royal Mile!

Great apartment! Would definitely book again!! Clean, modern and just off the Royal Mile. 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, nice wee kitchen with dishwasher and washing machine. If I had to pick fault...... Squeaky floorboards, but worth putting up with for space. Also, Tesco Metro just below! Very handy.
