Beautiful apartment, great location
The apartment was beautiful and in a great location with all the amenities we needed, as well as comfortable beds. The only minor complaint I have is the requirement to schedule a meeting with someone in person to get access.
This was very inconvenient to arrange due to arriving on an international flight after the normal check-in time as well as delays at the airport. Normally, when I use Homeaway or similar apps, there is some type of code that gets you in either through a lock box or an electronic lock. Thankfully, i was able to arrange for someone to meet the contact person on my behalf. The owners were also easy to reach when we had an issue and quickly resolved it when we couldn't reach their contact person. This was a great place to stay, and I'd definitely stay here again on the next trip.
7 in Scotland
flat was very clean,spacious and a lot of natural light. The royal mile is a 15 minute walk, which cuts down the cost of moving 7 people around by taxi. Many restaurants and shops close by. Great to have someone to meet you and go over the workings of the flat. Nicely decorated and kitchen had everything we needed. We would stay there again in a second.
Very Glam, stylish and good size for the 11 of us.
Great property and has everything you need for a weeks stay. Plenty of space for us all (although only 1 shower but we managed). Loved staying here and if we need a bug property in Edinburgh again we wouldn't look anywhere else.
Thanks for the great review and delighted that you all enjoyed your stay. We’re installing a second (and hopefully a third) shower later this year as we recognise that bath’s aren’t everybody’s “cup of tea”.
What an excellent flat in a great location. We had 12 family members with plenty of space - excellent touches along with a family room area that we spent many hours laughing and chatting. Well done!
Can get to all main areas of town either on foot or by bus.
We loved the spaciousness and location of this property. We were a large group of 11, but we never felt crowded. The beds were all comfortable. The owners were quickly responsive if we had questions. The flat is on the 3rd floor up, be prepared if you are carrying luggage.
Nice and spacious apartment. 6 large bedrooms designed with maximum comfort for your stay.
Apartment is equipped with everything you need, even child chairs are there.
Location is perfect - you are in 20 minutes walk from the castle and Arthur seat at the same time.
Do not even hesitate - book and enjoy your time at Edinburgh!
