“Looking forward to a return visit”
Reviewed 6 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

An instant hit the moment we walked through the door, both said we would return again without enjoying a warm welcome and a comfortable stay. Ideal walking distance into city centre and also to the Botanical Gardens,worth another visit too, Leith is a nice walk not too far away. Bus sevices readily available if you find some of the hills a bit much. Very good centre to stay.

In Edinburgh for a long weekend and the Marathon. The apartment is in a great location, and I was able to walk to the start line. Great bars and restaurants nearby.

“Comfort, Character and Convenience.”
Reviewed 29 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

The New Town Appartment is ideal for accessing Edinburgh City Centre. It is well served by public transport and has convenient grocery shops and restaurants nearby. The Appartment is well-equipped and cosy, with a small garden area to the rear. It is ideal as a place to relax after a busy day visiting the city.

We would happily return to this property on a future occasion.

“Delightful little flat”
Reviewed 10 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Excellent location for our needs. It was lovely to arrive and find that basic provisions had been provided. The flat is cosy, warm and comfortable. Much more homely than an impersonal hotel room. We were very pleased with our stay there.

“Good value and well located”
Reviewed 22 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

people found this review helpful

I stayed as a solo traveller 17-20 March (3 nights). The pre-arrival arrangements were very good, the owner was in touch at all the right times and provided the essential information. Bread, butter, chocolates and milk were thoughtfully provided on arrival. The apartment is in the basement of a house and is well laid out. There s a welcoming lobby and corridor leading to the rooms. The bedroom is excellent, with a large and exceptionally comfortable double bed. Plenty of wardrobe space and storage. The lounge is well appointed with a comfortable sofa. The kitchen is small but again well appointed. Perhaps the best way to describe the bathroom is "compact": it has a very small sink and I suspect if you were about 6'4" the shower would not be high enough. But for a single traveller the apartment space was fine. There is also a nice looking garden space which could be used in good weather.

If I am allowed a couple of gripes: the TV is small; the gas fire was difficult to light (note there is also central heating which comes on at set times mornings and evenings); and, although I am very familiar with ovens, I could not get the oven to work (not a problem: I cooked on the hob).

The apartment is surprisingly quiet. The bedroom window looks up on to the street but there is little traffic passing at night and I was only conscious of a few pedestrians on one night. very occasionally I was conscious of people in the flat above (light footfall only, no other noise).

The location is pretty good too. It is, I guess, about 15-20 minutes walk from the main city attractions. You can also find a taxi rank outside RBS in Dundas Street just round the corner and there are buses as well. The Botanic Gardens are about 10 minutes walk and are well worth a visit. If you want a good characterful local pub, try Smithies Ale House in Eyre Place.

i brought my car. Parking is £2.20 an hour Mon-Fri 830am to 530pm. Free parking at weekends.

As and when I visit Edinburgh again I would certainly consider booking 23B Cumberland Strreet.

“Perfect Apartment in Edinburgh”
Reviewed 25 February 2016 for a stay in June 2015

My partner and I stayed here for a few days in June 2015. It is situated about a 10 minute walk from the town centre and a perfectly quiet, well equipped, comfortable and homely apartment.

The host was lovely, even though I didn't get the chance to meet her we had regular correspondence and she could not have been more helpful.
having the garden area out the back of the flat was a definite bonus.

I would gladly recommend this holiday let to anyone visiting Edinburgh, but please remember that there are stairs and a bit of an uphill walk in to town, so probably not best choice for the infirm.
