Seven Days in Edinburgh

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I really enjoyed our stay at Boyd's Entry, since the location made all the sights in Edinburgh easily walkable. Stuart did a great job of welcoming us, including the start-up supplies (Thank You, Stuart). The shortbread bakery "Pinnies and Poppy Seeds" is so close, it was a daily stop for us. Tell Jennifer Hunter her Northern California customers/new friends miss her treats.

Comfortable apartment - perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was just right for our family. The bedroom and bath are upstairs, with living area (and convertible sofa) on the ground floor. Stuart made sure we had everything we needed, including some basics in the the fridge to get us started! There were several terrific restaurants just steps from our front door, including many with vegan options. We were one block from the Royal Mile, and within easy walking distance to the Grassmarket, the Elephant House (where JK Rowling wrote Harry Potter) the new Parliament and the Holyrood Palace. It's a bit longer hike to the Edinburgh Castle, but not bad (if I can do it - anyone can!).

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is in a great location and is well appointed! My boyfriend and I were very comfortable while staying here for 4 nights. We cooked several meals and the kitchen had all of the equipment we needed. The owner also kindly left some provisions for us to get us started. He also allowed us to bring our bags to the apartment prior to check in time. I can't recommend it enough!

This apartment is situated just a block from the Royal Mile, in the heart of Edinburgh's historic Old Town. The Royal Mile, the backbone of medieval Edinburgh, connects Edinburgh Castle at one end with the Palace of Holyroodhouse and the Parliament at the other. Edinburgh's main visitor attractions are on your doorstep and the neighbourhood is full of attractive independent shops and restaurants, bars and cafés to suit all budgets, from cheap and cheerful pizzerias to fine dining establishments. The Hub (the official centre for the Edinburgh International Festival) and the Festival Fringe office are on the Royal Mile, and you can easily walk to many of the Festival venues. You are also ideally placed to enjoy the Christmas and Hogmanay/New Year festivities.
