Guestbook comments from the owner

"We loved the flat and found it clean, smart with very comfortable beds and lots of room.



It was in a fantastic location too and only minutes from the centre of the city and was really well stocked with everything we might possibly need.



The owner was amazing and really, really helpful and accommodating and I would have no hesitation in recommending this apartment for a stay. It's excellent!

A great flat in Edinburgh!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this flat with another family so there was 8 of us and we loved it! Getting our keys was easy as the restaurant Giuliano's below it had them for us. They gave a discount to us and the food was so great, we ate there twice and ordered take away pizza another time! The flat was very well equipped with nice quality things in it. The beds were comfortable. It was nice to be able to use the washer to wash some clothes during our stay. The flat was an easy walk from Waverly station and it was also nice that Tesco Express grocery was around the corner and a .5 mile walk down the road was a larger Sainsbury. We walked a lot on our trip so these short walks were easy for us. Would recommend for sure and if ever go back would love to stay again !

Great apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is in a great location, 10 mins walk from the station or £6 in a cab, if you have heavy luggage. John lewis is across the road and a tesco express 2 mins walk away. We walked to the castle from the apartment which was pleasant.

There was 9 of us and the apartment was well equipped for everyone. The beds were comfortable, including the sofa bed in the front me.

We stayed for two nights and had a pleasant stay. The apartment owner was extremely helpful and very responsive to any questions we had beforehand. I would recommend the apartment to people who are travelling to Edinburgh.
