Greatly enjoyed this exceptional Apt

  • 5 out of 5
Six members of our family (including four of our children who are 11-20) stayed for three nights in the self-catering apartment the Inverleith owns on Brandon Street in Edinburgh (a few blocks from the hotel). We greatly enjoyed our stay. The apartment is the middle floor of a beautiful building. It's furnished very attractively and comfortably. There was plenty of room for all of us. We were all able to sit at the table and eat meals. The apartment has two bedrooms, one with a double bed (seemed more like a queen) and the other with a double bed and a single bed. There was a futon in the living/dining room and one of the leather couches also opened up to a bed. The duvets were very cozy, lots of pillows and wonderful thick, large towels. There is a clothes washer in the apartment and racks to dry clothes which was very helpful. A bus stop is literally right outside the door and there are restaurants, stores, and a nice coffee shop within a block or two. Best of all, Adrienne and Steve were so friendly and welcoming; we had a lot of difficulties with our car rental and Adrienne called the company and advocated for us. I think that's a big reason the problem got resolved - I'm sure they didn't want to lose the business of the hotel. We look forward to visiting Edinburgh again and staying at the Brandon Street apartment.

Inverleith Hotel - Brandon St Apartment

  • 5 out of 5
My wife, 3 children and I stayed at the Brandon Street Apartments. It is a great location, with an easy walk into town and good bus availability. The apartment was reasonably priced, well set up, clean and comfortable. We would return.

Great Apartment and the location was just perfect!

  • 5 out of 5
The apartment was very spacesious, clean, and was so much better than a hotel. The location is perfect for seeing all the local tourist attractions. Everyone should go across the street to the corner and eat at the best Fish and chips Place! And it was nice to come back to a homey atmosphere and just relax, after a long day of site seeing. I would recommend this place to everyone. Hope you enjoy it as much as we Did !!

The apartment by Inverleith Hotel has possibly one of the best sitings in Edinburgh. Downtown buses outside the door, about 20-25 minutes walk to the shopping district. Taxis frequent and cheap. A good grocer and multiple take-aways within 1 block. Tesco 3 blocks. Park with playground around the corner. A great apartment, spacious and comfortable (we slept 7 no problem). TV, WiFi that works. Gas fire taht was disconnected, but bvase board heat working fine (October). Full kitchen, laundry (hang to dry), good sized fridge. Not next to the pub district or hiways, so it's quiet at night. You can leave open the windows for air !! Linens and towels in abundance (yeah !!!).

Caveats: One bath room, so teenagers need a (10 minutes only) warning. No off street parking. Lovely but steep staircase to second floor (not "accessible"). When we stayed, the apartment needed some TLC, but with a good vacuuming and some spot scrubbing, it was fine. Slightly annoying, not off-putting. Heating controls take a little experimenting. Common hallway satircase could use some air freshener.

Overall: Highly recommended. Not perfect, but very good value. Our hotel option would have been 3 times the price for the group we had, and restaurant pricing no bargain in Edinburgh.

Comments from Owner Guestbook

We greatly enjoyed our time in Edinburgh. It’s a beautiful city and everyone we talked to was very friendly and helpful. I especially enjoyed hearing about your family, so like ours. You have a lovely hotel and apartment; the breakfast in the hotel was delicious. I’ve already been telling family and friends here that if they get a chance to go to Edinburgh they should stay at your apt or hotel. Thank you for your hospitality and maybe we’ll see you again someday.
Pat Voelker

Just a note to thank you again for being so helpful and so kind. We loved the spaciousness of the apt and especially the easy walk into the city. We found a number of excellent restaurants locally and in the city itself.
It was great to experience the splendour of a real Georgian apt.
