“Fabulous 5* Experience”
Reviewed 2 November 2016 for a stay in October 2016

This was our first time in Edinburgh & also renting a city apartment; it did not disappoint!!
Absolutely gorgeous Georgian decor & authentic furniture and the bed was soooo big and comfortable. We were stunned by how clean the flat was and also very quiet considering the close proximity to the centre. Edinburgh is very compact, so walking everywhere was an option; so lovely to come back to the beautiful flat after a hard day exploring! Well worth a visit is the Royal Britannia ship at Leith (bus 22-half hour), and the Scottish Gallery in Princes Street. The Royal Mile just over the bridge has some lovely pubs and attractions. We would come back only to stay in the flat again and to visit the lovely Georgian New Town (we also loved our first foray into 1st class train travel on the way home to Cambs. - 5pm train on Monday was almost empty!)
The only problem with this flat? - trying to match the quality of it in another city - if only we could clone it! Thank-you so much Alexandra!

“Exceeded all our expectations”
Reviewed 19 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We decided to have a two day mini break in Edinburgh and normally would have booked a hotel but seeing the reviews for this apartment, we decided to stay here instead of a hotel. What a great decision we made, the photo's do not convey how wonderful this apartment is The lounge furniture was very comfortable; the kitchen fully equipped with everything you could need ; the bathroom was quite large and well lit and had an excellent shower and the bedroom was very big with a beautiful king sized bed .We were met by the owner, Alexandra, a wonderfully warm and friendly and very helpful woman, who showed around the flat, explained all the appliances and gave us some really helpful tips on getting around the city. Had I looked for faults I would not have found any but it was clear from entering the first time that the place was perfect. We only stayed for two nights,( the minimum booking period) but wished we had booked for longer. This was excellent value for money and far and above exceeds any hotel, we are looking forward to our next visit.

“Wonderful apartment”
Reviewed 14 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Apartment perfectly located in historical New Town close to everything. It had everything you would ask for and more. The owner Alexandra was very helpful and eager to please. Highly recommended and we would not hesitate to stay there again.

“City Living”
Reviewed 27 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We rented this apartment for five days and were not disappointed. Various reasons for being here and the city centre location was very important. Alexandra met us exactly as agreed and helped with car parking, settling in. Car parking is the only downside which the owner has no control over. It's central so parking is hard to come by and monitored very closely - saw lots of wardens in action. We used a 24 hour car park about ten minutes away but they aren't cheap by any means. Not a surprise to us but if it's your first stay you might want to enquire further

The apartment photographs are very accurate. It is an elegant and relaxing environment. Very well-equipped with everything you could want, including the socks. Loved all the personal touches such as fragrances, toiletries and a very well stocked kitchen. The latter being equipment and some basic food sundries

There are numerous eateries, bars and shops in the immediate location which suited our stay very well. It was a pleasure to shop in independent outlets as opposed to supermarket Giants

We entertained family whilst at the apartment and they loved it too

All in all an excellent apartment and I guess the secrets out now

Ps Wi fi was great too for the techno phobes

Thanks for the great review. I think it's worth mentioning that parking is free right outside the apartment from Fridays 5.30 throughout the weekend, until Monday morning. There are ample free parking areas around the central area which most of my guests with cars use. Most Edinburgh holiday lets where you can walk to everywhere have the same type of parking but without the free weekend parking, so we consider ourselves lucky that our guests benefit in that way.

“An absolutely wonderful apartment, great location,beautifully furnished.”
Reviewed 12 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

The host, Alexandra was simply great to work with. She was friendly, generous, and very helpful.

The apartment itself is everything you would ever want in a vacation stay. It has almost every amenity one would ever want. My husband has a bad back and found the bed very comfortable. It is only a short 10 min. walk to Princes St. and the Royal Mile. We would definitely stay there again and would highly recommend it to anyone who desires a first class stay in Edinburgh.

“Light filled apartment”
Reviewed 4 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

This was a great apartment for two. Situated close enough to the centre but with a feeling of being in a separate village. All facilities for a relaxing stay and comfortable bed.
Broughton high street had great French restaurant and Botanical Gardens and Leith in easy walking distance.
