About Marion McNeill

I live near the centre of Edinburgh with my husband Colin and our three quickly growing children. We love Edinburgh and believe it to be the best city in the world for a city break. We have travelled throughout the world and have lived abroad a few times but our heart will always be here. The apartment on The Royal Mile is a perfect base to explore this amazing city.

Marion McNeill purchased this apartment in 2015

Great Property in a Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

Marion was a very helpful host who communicated well throughout the booking process and throughout our stay as needed. The property is in an ideal location set back off the Royal Mile in a quiet court yard just steps from the hustle and bustle of the main drag. Everything was within walking distance with lots of options for food and drink. The unit itself is very nicely decorated with fabulous bedding and products (shampoo, conditioner and soap). I would definitely recommend this property to others!

Great place in the middle of old Edinburgh

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful apartment located just off the Royal mile. Every attraction was within walking distance. The owner responded quickly to all messages and made sure that we got into the apartment as smoothly as possible. The only downside was that the kitchen and dining area could have been a little bit larger (we're a family of five). We'd definitely book this apartment again for a second time in this lovely city.

A lovely, well appointed apartment, in the heart of the old city but very quiet

  • 5 of 5

Our family of six had a wonderful stay. The apartment is lovely, well equipped and very efficient. We loved being close to everything but the grassy close was a serene retreat from the craziness of the Royal Mile. Marion was extremely nice and easy to work with. We 100% recommend!
