Absolutely no disappointments

  • 5 of 5

The property was exactly as described. It had everything you would need if you were eating in or not. I can’t say enough about the location, just below the castle, and convenient to everything from restaurants to pubs. I would not hesitate to return and stay here in the future. Absolutely no complaints. Thank you Jayne for your hospitality and also arranging an early check in.

Superb spacious apartment in the best Old Town location

We loved our stay at this Edinburgh rental! The flat is very modern inside, with loads of room. It was helpful to have the binder of info to orient ourselves. Simply fab in every way!

This lovely apartment was one of my favorites of all time! I've been staying in this style of lodging while travelling for over 10 years. This unit has the perfect location - close too all major attractions in the area - as well as the main train station and several lovely restaurants. I would highly recommend this unit to anyone and will certainly stay here again if we are in town.

Lovely bright apartment

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was convenient to absolutely everything! Even the city's tour buses were right down the street. It was only a block or so from Edinburgh Castle. The kitchen is very well-equipped and there were several small groceries within a few blocks; there were also a number of restaurants very close by (though you should get reservations early in the day). We walked down to Holyrood Palace as well as to the National Museum. Waverly Station was a convenient distance as well.

I highly recommend the home itself. There were bookshelves and the bathroom was large and easily accessed. The bed was comfortable and the windows looking out over Edinburgh were a beautiful feature. The home was clean and comfortable; it had outlets in every location you could conceivably want them and the wifi was fast and reliable.

Thanks! We truly enjoyed our stay!

Great value. Fantastic location.

  • 5 of 5

For two of us, this apartment was fantastic. Right next to the castle and Victoria Street and easy walking distance to the Mile. Very clean and well-appointed. There is some street noise at night from the pub next door, but a sound machine helped out with that. Highly recommend!
