“Excellent apartment, perfect location!”
Reviewed 20 November 2013 for a stay in November 2013

I would really recommend this apartment for those looking for a lovely place to stay in a very central location. The owner was very welcoming and the apartment was very well presented and was exactly as it looked in the pictures. We had a great weekend and thought it was fab being so close to all the shops, pubs and restaurants. Would not hesitate to stay here again, both with friends or maybe family next time.

“Fantastic apartment in a fantastic location”
Reviewed 2 November 2013 for a stay in October 2013

Stayed in the apartment for the weekend with my partner. The apartment is in a fantastic location and was easy to find thanks to the great directions & map supplied by Gareth. The apartment was very spacious and spotlessly clean and is in an ideal location to explore Edinburgh. Everything was within walking distance. We arrived by train and found the apartment only a 10 minute easy walk away. Would definitely recommend and would love to go back. Thanks for a great stay.

“Perfect!”
Reviewed 16 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Senior parents and adult son found everything just about perfect from start to finish with our rental of the Rose Street Apartment. Gareth was very prompt in replying to all emails. Upon arrival we found the entryway to be dark and narrow, but the apartment was just as pictured with a welcome tray of biscuits and such to get us started. It is on the "first" floor which means up a flight of spiral stairs. The apartment is perfectly located with Rose Street becoming a pedestrian street after 10 a.m. - a street loaded with pubs and shops (including a couple grocers). Just a block away is Princes St. with a spectacular view of Edinburgh Castle beyond Princes St. Gardens. The Hop-On, Hop-Off buses on Waverley Bridge (maybe 4 or 5 blocks away) gave us access to all the popular tourist sites. Our departure from Edinburgh was by train, and we found the walk to Waverley Station to be relatively easy in spite of our suitcases. Edinburgh is a beautiful city, and if we are ever fortunate enough to be able to return we hope we can again stay at Rose St Apartment.

“More then we expected :)”
Reviewed 13 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Great and very clean apartment. Short ways to the best places of Edinburgh, like Princess Street, Castle or Royal Mile.
Rose Street was a perfect location, many pubs, shops and restaurants.

We thank Gareth (the owner) for the great service, especially for the nice 'welcome pack' and all the facilities which were given in the apartment.

We would definitely come back.

Thanks and cheers !

“Home away from home in a great location in New Town Edinburgh”
Reviewed 29 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Gareth was there to meet us when we arrived to give us a quick tour of the apartment and answer our questions. The place is very comfortably decorated and has all modern conveniences including speedy wi-fi. The kitchen has everything you'd need to make a home-cooked meal. There was a pint of milk in the refrigerator and a loaf of fresh bread on the counter-top when we arrived (nice touch!).
The location on Rose Street is very convenient: less than 10-min. walk from the Edinburgh train station. Just outside the front door you'll find many pubs/restaurants in only a few steps. Take another few steps around the corner to Princes Street for a stunning view of Edinburgh Castle. It'll be hard to find a better location in all of Edinburgh for this value.
