“Great stay”
Reviewed 15 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

We have stayed at a few apartments etc rather than hotels over the years and I think 28a Cumberland Street may have been the best one so far.

So many thoughtful touches across the board and generally really lovely.

The location is pretty good, being just a short walk to pretty much everything in Edinburgh.

Thank you so much for leaving this review. We are extremely pleased you found the apartment so comfortable. The location is very desirable and perfect for all of Edinburgh’s main attractions, but with a calmer, more relaxed vibe. We pride ourselves on providing our guests with all the comforts of a home from home but with an added boutique hotel vibe, so we are delighted you rated it as one of the best apartments you've stayed in! We are also really proud to announce that 28A Cumberland Street has been awarded a Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence for 2017!! We hope you return for another stay in future. S&W

“Perfect Edinburgh accommodation.”
Reviewed 12 May 2017 for a stay in April 2017

A great location on a quiet street, but only 15 minutes walk to the city centre. (We also enjoyed walking to nearby Stockbridge and Dean Village.) The flat was very well-equipped and clean. Everything was exactly as promised and responses to emails were quick and helpful. We have sometimes avoided "garden flats", but 28A Cumberland does not feel like one at all: the kitchen and living room enjoy full street-level light. We loved Edinburgh and if we are able to return would certainly use this flat again.

We agree with your comments regarding the location and outlook. We are facing south at the front of the property so it is bright and sunny, and at the rear we are at street level. We hope you are able to stay with us on another occasion! W&S

“Home from home.....”
Reviewed 20 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

This is a wonderful place to enjoy Edinburgh from providing very clean and comfortable accommodation in a quiet but very well located part of the city. The flat is beautifully appointed and very welcoming, parking was easy as was access to all of the major areas of the city centre. From the cosy fireplace homely sitting room to the well appointed and functional kitchenette, this flat did not disappoint. I would thoroughly recommend it and will almost certainly be going back if the booking sheet allows...

“A comfortable apartment in a central, yet quiet, location.”
Reviewed 12 February 2017 for a stay in February 2017

We have stayed in many self-catering establishments in different parts of the world and this one of the best. It is perfect for a couple. The weather was cold but the apartment was warm and welcoming. The location was very good. We walked everywhere. Everything was of high quality and very clean. Thank you to the owners (Stuart and Wendy) for providing such excellent accommodation which we would have no hesitation in recommending.

Thank you so much for leaving such wonderful and detailed feedback. We are delighted you had a great stay and also enjoyed the style and décor of the apartment. Many guests appreciate a wee dram to celebrate their visit to Scotland and we are pleased you enjoyed all the other little extras too. But most of all, we are so honoured that we have helped you to agree after 40 years of marriage! That is truly wonderful! :-)
We would love to welcome you both back again in future, but in the meantime, many thanks for taking the time to leave a review of your stay at 28A Cumberland Street! Warmest regards W&S

We are extremely pleased you found the apartment so comfortable. A good night's sleep is essential after a day sightseeing in Edinburgh, and we ensure our beds and bedding are top quality.
