“Lovely apartment in a lovely city”
Reviewed 29 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

A lovely apartment in a quiet area of Edinburgh. It is a little bit of a walk into the Old Town from there, but if you are in any kind of shape it's not a problem at all.The apartment is stocked with everything you could need. It is located close to a number of groceries. We had some minimal issues, ALL generated by my own stupidity, and the owner's support was timely and excellent. This apartment was an excellent value. If I return to Edinburgh, I would be happy to stay here again.

“Excellent location”
Reviewed 24 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Communication was excellent leading up to the stay and afterwards.
Accommodation was in a perfect, clean quiet, relaxing, friendly location minutes from all you need to explore Edinburgh.

Owner took some constructive advice from us, on how to enhance the property/experience

Would recommend going just out of the city to Cramond, for some time out and some fresh, sea air
