Clean with a great location

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here very comfortably with 10 other members of my family as the first part of a 2 week trip. The location was great; walked to The Meadows, Arthur's Seat and the Royal Mile. Parking isn't far so we were able to easily drive about to further locations. Everything we needed was already there in the apartment. Well stocked kitchen and linen. There are a lot of steps; not complaining, but be prepared. Otherwise it was absolutely perfect.

Stunning

  • 5 of 5

Me and my family stayed here for my 50th birthday. The accommodation was beautifully set out and had everything you need. Clean, spacious and very comfortable. It was an excellent choice on our part. The owners where so helpful with everything from parking to local information. Couldn't have given any more to make our stay a memorable one. My 15yr old son and his friend had their "little den " upstairs where there was 2 bedrooms that they could go away from us older ones and revise in the quiet. They thought it was brilliant. There is loads of bars and restaurants near by and the co op underneath you. 15 min nice stroll into the town centre to work off all the food that was easily available around you. All round we had the best time ever. Oh if your going to Arthur's seat the start is 2 mins round the back of the accommodation not 30 mins walk like i took my family on. Found the back route by accident when on way back. Got called for that one. Thank you to Judy and mark for letting us stay.

Lovely, well equipped apartment in easy walking distance of Arthurs's Seat, the Royal Mile and Edinburgh Castle. The apartment was easily large enough to accommodate our group of 12. We had a fantastic stay - thank you!
