Memorable Edinburgh visit

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of spending six days in Edinburgh with this apartment as our home base.

It is in a wonderful location, minutes from the Royal Mile and Edinburgh Castle overlooking Grassmarket and Victoria Street. It is clean and equipped with everything you need. The bed is comfortable and outfitted with quality linens. The shower provides water at a consistent temperature and pressure.

We did not use the cook top as there are many excellent restaurants nearby. I can recommend Hanam's and Thai Orchid a few doors away. Howie's and Maison Bleue on Victoria Street also serve delicious food. Scott's on Victoria Terrace is a good option if you want to enjoy a glass of wine with cheese and charcuterie. Of course there are numerous pubs as well.

Jayne and Tony are lovely to work with. Jayne was extremely accommodating when our plans changed by extending our rental. Tony made the extra effort to locate our mobile phone which we left in a cab on our way out of town, and was ultimately returned to us.

Every step of the process runs smoothly, from initial inquiry to departure at the end of your stay.

I cannot think of a more convenient, comfortable place to stay for a visit to Edinburgh.

Beautiful flat near the castle

  • 5 of 5

This flat was the highlight of a 3-week vacation. It is remarkably spacious, full of light and has everything you'd need in the kitchen. It was very clean and nicely decorated. A great option if you want to stay in lovely Edinburgh.

Excellently fitted and decorated and located in Edinburgh.

  • 4 of 5

Perfect for two persons or a third on the pull out. As owners advise, central location also means late night noise from many drinkeries in the vicinity. Just steps off the top end of the Royal Mile at the end of the terrace to the Castle.

Decor, appliances, bath and shower arrangement all excellently and apparently recently done. Comfortable in all respects.

Two long flights of stairs up from the ground floor can be quite daunting with heavy cases or older knees. Or both as with we seniors.
