Wonderful accommodation, far above our expectations, better than a First Class hotel, and fitted with all we could possibly have needed.So convenient within walking distance to Princes Street. We have been treated royally. D. Fee, Canada.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The owners' personal and prompt attention from the moment of inquiry promised an outstanding experience; we were not disappointed. The size, layout, and facilities were perfect for our group of eight, which ranged in age from 10 months to nearly 70. Nearby markets--from small shops to gourmet fare--as well as excellent carry-out options within a five-minute walk made it possible to have nearly all meals in the well-appointed Penthouse without missing out on local flavors and culture. The middle generation also had a great night out within easy walking distance. The nearby playground and easy bus to the zoo were a plus; the walk to Holyrood and Royal Mile was pleasant for those who like to explore on foot. The owners go out of their way to make guests comfortable--and even pampered.

The Penthouse Was Everything We Expected It To Be.

  • 5 of 5

As shown in the website, The Penthouse was spacious (large enough for our family of seven) with all of the modern conveniences, especially wi-fi. It is centrally-located with supermarkets, convenient stores, restaurants, and other stores close by. It in within walking distance of the Royal Mile, the Castle, and the Palace with transportation (taxis and buses) available as well. The owner, Eddie Ewen, handled even the smallest detail expertly not only about The Penthouse but also about the many events that were happening during our stay in Edinburgh. We would highly recommend The Penthouse to any family visiting the city.

Outstanding Place for Edinburgh!

  • 5 of 5

The Penthouse was spotless when we arrived! The owners had graciously left us a gift basket! There was plenty of room for the five of us. Each of the three bedrooms had a TV with the Main Room having a large screen TV with cable and a DVD player. The kitchen was well equipped with refrigerator, oven, microwave, kettle, and coffee maker. Would only consider staying here when I return to Scotland. Owners very, very nice people.

tolle Wohnung

  • 5 of 5

Wir fanden das Penthouse exakt wie beschrieben vor, eine großzügige, bestens ausgestattete Wohnung. Die Lage ist zentral (die Altstadt kann zu Fuß erreicht werden, aber auch gute Busabindung), trotzdem ruhig. Bereits im Vorfeld bekamen wir viele, sehr gute Empfehlungen bzgl. Restaurants und Sehenswürdigkeiten. Die Wohnung war sehr gut auf unsere Ankunft vorbereitet. Ein wirklich schöner Ausgangspunkt, um eine lebendige, interessante Stadt zu entdecken. Der Kontakt zum Besitzer war sehr gut und zeitnah.

An awesome experience!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was great from the first contact, to the post stay contact. The Penthouse is absolutely amazing, I'd say 6 stars rather than 5!!! Eddie and Doreen have made that place a true home away from home flat and every detail was really well thought.

We have a wonderful time there and spent quality time as a family! The kids were safe and had toys to play with and the collection of DVDs is amazing!

That's a flat I would happily live in if I could!

I'm definitely recommending it to friends and when I am back in Edinburgh that's where I'll stay! On top of it all, it's close to everything!!!!!

Location

Car: not necessary

Right in the centre of Edinburgh only a 10 minute walk to princes street, and Waverley train station. Located in a very safe exclusive development, so ideal for families as good part of town to walk at any time of the day or night. Off the main roads so quiet with no passing traffic. The penthouse has its own parking, however once you've parked your car you probably won't use it as sightseeing can easily be done by foot. Excellent public transport only a couple of minutes walk away. Ideal location for sightseeing. The Playhouse theatre, and an Omni Multiplex cinema complex, are only a 5 minute walk away. Many restaurants, bars, shops etc as all within short walking distance. Supermarket only a 2 minute walk away.
