Excellent apartment

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 2 nights during the Fringe festival and the apartment was perfect. Good sized bedrooms, convenient location (buses to the centre very frequent and the stop is just outside) and its pretty quiet. Magdalene was very accommodating and allowed us to drop our bags off early so we could get straight into the city centre. Excellent wifi, television, kitchen etc, close to a large supermarket and parking was straightforward. Would highly recommend for a stay in Edinburgh. Thanks, Magdalene!

Clean, warm and welcoming

  • 5 of 5

This was a lovely clean flat with everything we required for our "rugby weekend" stay. Parking was easy to find even if the designated parking was full- we arrived late and easily found safe, street parking.

Cooking facilities are great and beds really comfortable - too comfortable for teenage boys, making it even more difficult to get them out!

We walked into the city - a comfortable half hour walk, just under 2 miles, but taxis and buses are easy to find too.

Would certainly stay here again - excellent value for money and the owner responds quickly and efficiently. No hesitation to recommend.

Quiet, safe. Perfect for a family

  • 5 of 5

Came for New Years (Hogmanay) with my husband and our two sons ages 21 and 17. This was an easy 5-10 min bus ride or taxi to the heart of town, but just far enough to be quiet. Safe neighborhood. easy walk to large local grocery store (similar to Target) and many restaurants. Great communication with owner, who provided many thoughtful touches. She went out of her way to be helpful. Highly recommended. Would definitely stay there again. Good wi-fi!

The apartment is well situated for a multi cultural visit to the beautiful and historic city of Edinburgh with many visitor attractions such as Edinburgh Castle, The Palace of Holyrood, The Royal Yacht Brittania as well as numerous art galleries and museums.

In August the city is home to the Edinburgh Festival and Fringe when the city comes alive and the atmosphere just has to be experienced.

If wanting to tour central Scotland, the apartment is ideally situated being within one hours drive of Stirling, Glasgow Perth and Dundee.
