Rooms are comfortable, very nice owner met us and walked us through the apartment. Onsite secured parking is a huge plus. Upstairs 2 bedrooms are accessible via a spiral staircase, which was fine for us but elderly might have some trouble with luggage up and down. There is one bedroom on the main floor and that worked great for our senior group member. Typical Edinburgh - space is a premier so rooms very functional and pleasant just not huge open space. The bedroom with the open balcony to the main floor is the most spacious. There are a number of take away restaurants in the area.

Everything about house was 1st class comfy beds and everything u needed. Added bonus of hot tub made it perfect even in the colder weather. Owners Dawn and Bryan were very nice.
