“Great Location and Quiet”
Reviewed 18 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Apartment was as described. Lynne was very prompt when communicating and was able to accommodate our very early arrival. She met us on arrival and showed us around the apartment and answered all of our questions and had a very helpful binder with information which made our stay easier. Although you are close to Grassmarket the apartment is quiet.
Grocery store is a block away and provided a decent selection to make our meals. We were able to walk to most tourist sights. Would sure recommend taking the walk up Arthur's Seat. The views and scenery on the way up are worth the effort. Was very convenient to have a washing machine. Thanks Lynne

“Cosy five star apartment”
Reviewed 27 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

Stayed in the apartment for 4 nights. Location is just around the corner of Grassmarket with kitchen view towards the castle. Safe and gated complex. Apartment was clean and coffee and tea provided. Owner is in all ways a good host. Would recommend this accommodation for a few nights or for weeks, because it is a home away from home.
From the airport you can reach it in many ways (taxi, tram, airlinkbus, regular bus) all for different budgets and travel time. Supermarket a few steps away. Wifi works perfect.

“Excellent flat in a great location”

person found this review helpful

I stayed with my husband and 11 year old daughter, for three nights. The flat was very comfortable (my husband has a bad back and the bed was perfect for him) and well equipped and the location was excellent.

The Coffee Mill was a great cafe to have breakfast with nice coffee. We had lovely views of the castle from the kitchen and bedroom, we watch the Tattoo fireworks from the bedroom and got some great pics.

The owner Lynne was lovely and very helpful. I'd defiantly repeat book.

“Central Location - Great Facilities”
Reviewed 16 July 2014 for a stay in March 2014

My partner and I stayed in this apartment for a 4 night city break and really enjoyed it. The location of the apartment is spot on, within walking distance of most attractions and sights in Edinburgh. The apartment is round the back of a block and although there was a little outside noise not enough to keep us awake at night.

The kitchen has everything you might want if you wanted to eat in one night and has a lovely view of the castle. The living space is perfect for two; might have been a little cramped if any more were to visit. Can't fault facilities within the apartment, the owner even left a lot of leaflets and info about what to visit in Edinburgh. We visited in winter and were never cold inside the apartment.

Communication with owner before our stay was brilliant, she even let us come a little earlier in the day as had no one there the night before.

Highly recommended!

“Cozy and comfy city retreat”
Reviewed 1 January 2014 for a stay in December 2013

We loved the apartment, the view and the amenities were spot on for our little family. Our 8yr old son was quite comfy on the living room rollout bed, and we found the master bedroom to be very comfortable as well.
Heating in the unit was just right, immaculate linens, bath facilities great, TV, kitchen, etc all just perfect!! Location: perfect! Cafes and late-night kebab just steps away, early morning market and coffee also right there.
Did I mention the view? We loved spotting the castle every time we walked in and out the door, seeing how the chandeliers lit up the great hall and trying to guess what all the little doors and steps along the castle wall were for.
The location is very central, and convenient to a ton of bars, pubs, clubs and cafes. Great for couples and singles, and still great for families, but maybe not so much for those with very little ones. Our son is pretty portable and raised around bartenders, but was still quite unhappy with some of the loud folks outside of the bars and the far too-occasional occurrences of vomit on the sidewalk. Mind you, this was right before New Years Eve, so other times are sure to be much more quiet.
All in al, we LOVED the apartment, and would definitely revisit and recommend to our friends. Thank you for a great stay in Edinburgh!!
