“This flat is a gem!”

We were so very happy that we rented this flat. It was spotlessly clean, beautifully decorated, comfortable, cozy and convenient to buses, eating places and pubs. Edinburgh has many sights to see and good places to eat. The Botanic Garden was the most beautiful we have ever visited! The Castle was great. In fact, we enjoyed every activity, and would have loved to be able to stay longer. Stuart and Wendy's place is so nice to come home to after a busy day!

We thank you for taking the time to let other travellers and guests know of your experience! The location is so close to everything, and as you said, bus routes are at the end of the road if you wish to travel further afield. But the accommodation is peacefully set in the historic UNESCO New Town away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre. We are especially pleased you visited the botanic gardens which we know are superb! Many guests head into the city centre, and miss the gardens which are so close in the other direction! You know where we are if you ever plan on returning to Edinburgh ... we hope you do! Thank you again, Wendy & Stuart x

Thank you! This apartment is a warm and welcoming home away from home. It is very clean, very comfortable and the two of us enjoyed our stay immensly. It is exactly like the advertising photos. We also had a surprise welcoming package on our arrival. Very nice, thank you! From Cumberland Street you can walk everywhere , it is a 10 minute walk to a large supermarket, around the corner from a small continental deli/mini market, 15 minutes to New Town, 30 minutes to Old Town close to Botanical and Princess Street Gardens, buses, trains etc. The two of us have no hesitation recommending this apartment and would gladly stay again. Thank you to the friendly owners for contributing to our memorable stay in Edinburgh.

“Comfortable, quiet and great location”
Reviewed 9 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Great location. Lovely quiet apartment - very clean and nicely furnished. Living room very large, bedroom not as big as the photo suggests, but really nice. Kitchen small but well equipped and has a charming breakfast bar. Would have liked a table and chairs to sit at to eat (bars stools a wee bit of a challenge for older people) but having said that, I would use the apartment again.
Nice touch was the bottle of prosecco and a supply of Tunnocks teacakes and caramel wafers.

“Lovely Edinburgh Retreat”
Reviewed 8 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Myself and my friend booked this beautiful apartment for a long weekend break. Having viewed the pictures, we couldn't believe the price, and quickly snapped it up. The apartment did not disappoint. Beautifully decorated and furnished, we had a wonderful, warm stay. The apartment is welcoming and cosy, perfect for resting after a long day exploring. It's a 10 minute walk to Princes Street, so it's a brilliant location to go exploring from, but far enough away from the hustle and bustle that you can really unwind.

The arrival process was easy, and thoroughly explained in an email from the owner -- which also included lots of helpful links and information about the area, as well as many different things to do and explore. When we arrived, we were touched to find complimentary whisky, wee Scottish treats and a bottle of Prosecco -- so thoughtful, and it made our stay feel that bit more special.

We were very sad to leave and hope to return in the future. Our only small complaints would be that there was no pen to write in the guest book (unfortunately, we didn't have one of our own so were unable to leave a lovely note), and also, that there is no DVD player. Apart from that, the stay was perfect. Thank you ever so much!

Thank you for leaving a review of your experience. Our aim is for all our guests to have a great time in Edinburgh, and in 28A Cumberland Street, from the moment they book with us! We value all our guests and want them to feel a little bit spoilt as soon as they step over the threshold, so we are delighted to hear you enjoyed some of the whisky and prosecco, as well as the Scottish treats! We were sorry to hear that there were no pens when you stayed …. And also that you were seeking a DVD player. We will ensure that one is in the apartment for future guests. Thank you, and we really hope you decide to visit Edinburgh and stay with us on another occasion. W&S x

“Picture perfect!”
Reviewed 21 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Well the pictures seriously don't lie with this stunning apartment! What a lovely couple of days we had in this beautiful stylish accommodation. Everything is finished to a high standard and there is such a fine eye for detail. We were made to feel welcome from the moment we arrived and the owners were so attentive answering any questions we had promptly (even on a Saturday!!) The apartment is so central , just a 5 minute walk from George Street. We all loved this gem and will definitely be back in the future.

Thank you very much for a lovely weekend!
