We stayed at Lady Wynd at the end of September, 2014 and couldn't have been more pleased. Eve was so accommodating with our fluctuating schedule and made us feel like this was our home. She goes over and above with the extras....fresh fruit, chocolates, bottle of bubbly, her own farm eggs (delicious), milk, bread, coffee, tea, and so much more. The space was clean and the bed very comfortable.
The location is excellent for sightseeing on foot, just a 5 minute (up-hill) walk to the castle, on the Royal Mile. The Grassmarket area is full of activity with pubs and restaurants, and there's a grocery store nearby. The entrance to the flat is in an alley (known as "Wynd"), but it's perfectly safe and the building is secure. It can get a bit noisy at times with partiers nearby, but this is intermittent and temporary (happened only a couple times). Ear plugs may help if you're a light sleeper. We would encourage travelers to not let this deter you from staying at Lady Wynd as it's a wonderful choice. Easily, an excellent value for this very reasonably priced property.

We had a wonderful weekend staying at Lady Wynd. The apartment is tucked away in the Old Town of Edinburgh, on a quiet street but moments away from the bustling town and the castle. A perfect base for exploring the city, cosy and clean. Would highly recommend.
The apartment was a cosy retreat - very quiet and comfortable in every way. Our host Eva provided a lovely apartment, with the best shower we have ever experienced. The bed was comfortable and the apt. was on a lane so there was no traffic passing by. Everything in Edinburgh is within walking distance for hardy folk who can do stairs. There were restaurants, groceries and shopping nearby. We would go back to stay anytime. It was a true home away from home.
My vacation at lady wynd couldn't have been better. Location is great, all the nice things eve the owner has for her guests. Fruit, homemade jam, fresh eggs from her own chickens and the list goes on and on. She is a lovely lady and will be staying at lady wynd on my next trip.
Eve was a great host, and had thought of everything - fresh fruit, bread, milk, tea & coffee and more essential items were provided for our stay. The apartment was in a great location and within easy reach of all the main attractions in Edinburgh. There was a little noise at night but it didn't spoil our stay. We stopped one night with our two children who loved the sofa bed and were especially excited about the jacuzzi! We would definitely stay here again, it was a fantastic find.
Not long home from my stay at the Lady Wynd apartment. Thank you Eve for making our stay very enjoyable. The apartment was beautiful and very well equipped. It was very comfy, warm and felt like home. Eve (the owner) made us feel very welcome and left plenty of treats in the apartment including fresh eggs from her farm, bath products made by herself and lots of other little treats. I cant recommend this apartment enough and will definitely visit again.
We were right beside the castle, when you stepped out the front door it was 100 yards away. The area was great too, full of so much character!
Thank you Eve!

Thank you Eve for a lovely place to stay in Edinburgh. The flat was lovely. The snacks and flowers were much appreciated and made the apartment seem like our own. The bed was comfy. The apartment was a quiet place to come home to after long walks around the city and we really appreciated the area - markets close by, restaurants just next store, everything nearby this well located flat.
