Guestbook Comment

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in this spacious accomodation, lots of room for 8 adults. Modernly updated while still maintaining lots of the old character. Good restaurants, bars and shopping in the area and the city centre is a pleasant 15 minute walk away. Would definately recommend this location.

Can't imagine how it could have been better

  • 5 of 5

Three generations of family spent a wonderful week exploring amazing Edinburgh (and the Fringe Festival!) and a few fun day trips out of the city - and Rona's apartment was the perfect home base. Elegant, so very well equipped, and conveniently located, I can't imagine how it could have been better. Rona was quite helpful and accommodating to our planning and staggered arrivals. The apartment is really lovely and was so very well stocked with all the essentials. One of the nicest rentals we've had the pleasure to 'borrow.'

Sincere thanks!

Everything you need and more

  • 5 of 5

We had a 2 night stay for 6 guests at this lovely apartment that's just a 15 minute walk into town. The apartment was spotless, homely and welcoming. It has beautiful period features and all the essentials we needed were catered for. We really couldn't fault it at all. We also met the owner Rona just as we were leaving who was lovely. We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend to others. Thanks again John and Marion.

Two Day Edinburgh Lay Over

  • 5 of 5

This property far and away exceeded expectations. Excellent views, spacious, tastefully appointed, centrally located, good access to public transportation, Uber and taxis. The kitchen, unlike some other rentals we have stayed in, is fully stocked and workable. I particularly like it that the owner didn't feel compelled to purge the kitchen of all food from all previous tenants... the effect being that there was some non perishable food (bread, cereal, coffee and tea) on hand for the morning after our arrival. This was an excellent stay. I highly recommend. It did not effect us, but I would say there are some handicapped accessibility issues. Stairs... narrow doors... small oddly shaped bathrooms. Excellent job Rona!
