This apartment is beautifully furnished with everything you need in a central location.
The owner is really helpful and the attention to detail is great. There are stunning views of Edinburgh and beyond from every room. The climb up the stairs to get to the apartment is worth every step! We will definitely book again.

“Beautiful apartment with stunning view!”
Reviewed 23 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Myself and two friends stayed here for a weekend in Edinburgh and had a great time!

The owner's wife met us at the apartment at 10am and explained how everything worked. She had also bought us milk and bread which was really thoughtful.

The apartment is really nicely presented with a beautiful view from the living room window. It was unusually cold in Edinburgh for the time of year (we had snow!) so we lit the log fire on both evenings which was lovely!

If I was staying in Edinburgh again I would 100% stay here again - it was extremely good value for money and the owners were great. They even let us check out late on the Sunday afternoon. My deposit was also returned to me extremely quickly.

10/10

“Charming apartment in Edinburgh”
Reviewed 30 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Our first time in Edinburgh was fantastic, my family and I based ourselves in this homely and warm apartment that was perfect. We were greeted by Louise whom explained everything clearly and was very friendly. We highly recommend staying here when you come to Edinburgh, it is close to the city centre and Calton Hill. There is a great cafe called Twelve Triangles around the corner on Brunswick St. Thanks.

“SUPERB!!”
Reviewed 14 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

My wife and I spent four absolutely wonderful nights in this flat. It is superbly decorated, more than adequately equipped with every good thing one would need. It is quiet, restful, very comfortable, spacious with loads of light coming through. Mark, the owner, couldn't have been nicer, more efficient and more generous to us. Every detail is looked after in this lovely, quaint, well decorated, comfortable flat. If Trip Advisor allowed ten stars, I'd give it twelve. Since they only allow five stars, I'd still give it twelve! Thank you!

“Excellent, central, traditional Edinburgh apartment”
Reviewed 28 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

person found this review helpful

My husband and I, along with our 5 month old baby stayed here for 3 weeks while on holiday from Australia so that we could meet up with our friends and family. Mark (the owner) was prompt and helpful with all of his communication and went out of his way to help us - he even bought a new travel cot for our baby to sleep in while we were there.

The flat is exactly as described, it is spacious and well-equipped and it is well looked after by the owner. For those travelling with a baby it is great - there is a new travel cot and a high chair. There is also plenty of space to keep a buggy in the hall of the flat - though, as clearly stated in the advert, there are three flights of stairs that the buggy will need to be carried up to get to the flat. We knew that this would be the case and it was fine as we have a light buggy.

We stayed in the flat in January and the flat was plenty warm enough with the central heating, there is also the option of using the open fire. The only (slight) downside is that the fireplace is large and creates a large through draught in the living room - we ended up using cushions along the bottom of the living room door to stop this happening.

The flat is in an excellent location, very central and within walking distance of the city centre. It is also less than 5 mins walk to the major bus routes and a taxi rank. The flat is on a fairly quiet road and the bedrooms are not at the from to the flat so there is no traffic noise at all when sleeping.

Overall, a brilliant flat and I would recommend it to friends, indeed, we shall stay there again when we next visit.
