About James and Mandy Phillips

Mandy studied in Edinburgh 30 years ago and always loved this part of the city. We have been coming here as a family at least once a year for a holiday and knew we wanted to have somewhere permanent in the city which we could share with others.

James and Mandy Phillips purchased this apartment in 2013

Why James and Mandy Phillips chose Old Town (Grassmarket)

The apartment is very centrally situated close to the Royal Mile, Holyrood Palace and the Scottish Parliament. There is free parking in a designated parking zone using the permit provided. Despite its central location the apartment is wonderfully quiet and peaceful and its location right on the edge of Holyrood Park opens up a range of excellent walking, cycling, running and hiking activities should you be so inclined.

Guestbook comments from the owner

comfortable apartment, easy location, great stay

  • 4 out of 5
Clean and comfortable apartment, just like the photos. Bedrooms nicely done, comfy bed too. We found there was space for our travel cot in either bedroom. We were a bit concerned about walking distance from city centre but were attracted by the easy parking which is unusual in Edinburgh. However, we found the location really good, and a pleasant brisk 15 min walk or 20 min amble up the attractive canongate route, which we did each day with a pushchair or with our little one toddling along.

Externally, being a modern build, the apartment's not got the charm of the city centre tenements and the view from the windows isn't special, but this was no problem for us as there was plentky enough to look at during the day exploring the city, and the apartment was a comfortable place to return to. Very close to the dramatic holyrood park and just a stones thrown from the parliament and holyrood palace too.

I know the owners are shortly going to be refitting the bathroom, which will lift the decoration standard to match the furnishings of the bedrooms. The shower worked well though and we had no problems at all whilst staying at the apartment.

All in all a great find, a very pleasant stay. We found the owners very helpful in our communication and the deposit was returned promptly.

Would recommend to anyone coming to visit Edinburgh, especially for those to whom the parking convenience is high on the agenda.

Ideal flat and location for touring Edinburgh

  • 5 out of 5
Excellent base for touring Edinburgh during the Fringe Festival and Tattoo. All theatres less than a mile.

Flat itself was larger than I expected and had all the basic utilities you would require. Location is a very short walk from Holyrood Park, which for the energetic is probably the best place ever to go for a run in a capital city anywhere!

Excellent friendly communication from James and Mandy which ensured our stay went without a hitch. Very flexible to allow us to enter the flat a few hours early which was good news after a long drive...parking of course was worth its weight in gold!!

All in all a perfect place to visit Edinburgh.

Lovely apartment in a great location

  • 5 out of 5
We had a lovely stay in this apartment near the city center. The owner provided excellent details and help about our stay. The beds and pillows were very comfy and provided a good night's sleep after each day of walking the city. The apartment is within walking distance of many sights including Edinburgh Castle, and less than five minutes walk from a food market where we found the staff to be exceptionally friendly. We'd stay there again the next time we visit Edinburgh! Great experience!
