“A very comfortable and quiet house in a central location.”
Reviewed 13 September 2017 for a stay in August 2017

My wife and I stayed for part of the Edinburgh Festival, and the house, in its central location, is superbly placed for that. Tucked away off the Grassmarket area, it is amazingly quiet but only a few metres from all the action. All necessary comforts are catered for and the friendly owners do all they can to ensure this.

“Historic Old Town haven; delightful and wonderfully quiet.”

person found this review helpful

We first chose the Signal House last summer for a visiting teacher as part of an International teaching tour and were delighted with all aspects of it. We booked a return visit this year.

The Old Town location of the property is incredibly central and convenient, with an extraordinary view of the castle from the upstairs living room. Set back from the front door entrance on busy West Port, it is a joy to walk into the calm of the quiet and leafy courtyard that leads to the property. This is an extraordinarily fortuitous find; a truly quiet and very pleasant flat right in the very centre of the city.

The Signal House is thoughtfully designed, spotlessly clean and very tastefully presented throughout. The bedroom has shuttered windows and the bed is extremely comfortable. The kitchen is very well-equipped and the living room is a wonderfully agreeable place to rest and enjoy the view.

Peter is surely the most reliable, welcoming and helpful of hosts; we could not ask for more. He really went out of his way to make sure we had everything we needed.

We recommend the Signal House highly and unreservedly!

“Excellent city center accomadation.”
Reviewed 24 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

A wonderful small house with garden and a view of Edinburgh Castle only about 400 metres away.
The facilities in the house are excellent and it has a homely feel.
The owners are extremely helpful and available if necessary.
This is the third time we have used their properties and have never been disappointed.

In a great location to explore all areas in Edinburgh, yet private and quiet. Decorated in a bright, modern and fresh way. Friendly and helpful owner. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

“First Class Accommodation and Location”
Reviewed 28 February 2017 for a stay in February 2017

The Signal House is a delightful apartment in the Centre of Edinburgh's Old Town. A mere stone's throw from the charming area of Grassmarket and with a fabulous view of Edinburgh Castle the location would be hard to beat. Just minutes away from pubs, restaurants, cafes and shops and an easy walk to both Princes Street and The Royal Mile with all it's attractions. The apartment is very well equipped and extremely comfortable. Our host Peter Tucker met us on arrival and provided a very welcome grocery pack to see us through our first breakfast the following morning. We found The Signal House suited our needs perfectly and we will definitely be contacting Peter again on our next visit to Edinburgh.
