FANTASTIC PLACE TO ENJOY THE DELIGHTS OF EDINBURGH

  • 5 out of 5
We just loved this flat! It's in a perfect spot to enjoy all the best that the Fringe has to offer. Also 'Mum's' - the best sausage & mash shop, is on the doorstep! Everything you could wish for including very helpful, friendly & flexible owners. After 12 years of the Fringe and the experience of many types of accomodation we have found our Edinburgh home!

THIS APARTMENT SURPASSED OUR EXPECTATIONS!

  • 5 out of 5
Excellent facilities and excellent location. The best apartment we've stayed in in many years of visiting Edinburgh. Be aware of 2 flights of stairs and considerable traffic and street noise and if these don't concern you then it is without fault. All perfectly clean and nicely appointed. Blackfriars Bobby is just below and a well known folk cafe is opposite. Kate the owner is extremely helpful and friendly.

BEAUTIFUL APARTMENT, WONDERFUL LOCATION.

  • 5 out of 5
You really couldn't wish for more than this apartment. It is situated right in the centre of Fringe activity and is only a 15min walk from the New town. The accommodation is lovely and has everything you need. The Doctor's bar on the corner serves the most wonderful cider and there is a wide choice of places to eat or shop within a few minutes' walk. The owners met us to hand over the keys and left a very nice bottle of wine as a welcome gift.

Wonderful.

WHY STAY ANYWHERE ELSE?

  • 5 out of 5
A fabulous property - full of character and ideally located to enjoy the buzz of the Fringe. The rooms are all nicely decorated and spotlessly clean. Great views up to the Royal Mile.
We loved it and will definately stay again!

PERFECT LOCATION - HEART OF THE FRINGE

  • 5 out of 5
If you had to pick the absolute best spot to see the Edinburgh Festival from, it would be hard to beat this. Literally 2 seconds from the Udderbelly, Pleasance Dome and Gilded Balloon, and 5mins from all the other southside venues, restaurants, cafe's etc. It transforms the fringe experience - no more waiting in the rain or getting through 100 coffees a day every time you have a 45min gap between shows, just pop back to the flat!

Inside it's typically spacious (one of the bedrooms in particular is the size of a small flat!), well presented and equipped, and the owners are extremely helpful if you run into any problems or just need any advice.
