Pleasant and spacious.... very convenient to city centre
Flat is well appointed generally, with a well equipped kitchen and enough crockery glassware and cutlery for at least 15 people! Our children loved the space to play. Ensuite bathroom was shoddy, though , and hand - held shower leaked. Upstairs bathroom was lovely but only has hand- held shower, so there was really only 1 proper shower; we found this awkward for 12 people.
Excellent Apartment and more than lived up to our expectations
After a bit of research we found this apartment and we are so glad we did. Great Location within walking distance to all Edinburgh has to offer. The Apartment itself was better than we had hoped for and provided more than enough room for all 5 couples! Judy and Mark (hosts) couldn't have been more helpful and efficient when answering all our questions prior to arrival. Karen was also great when she was there to meet us at the start of our stay. Being on the top floor meant we had no one above us which was great. Thank you for a great and stress free stay. John
Beautiful apartment, ideal location.
The apartment was amazing, everything you could possibly need was supplied. Beautifully presented, very clean, spacious, and the beds were really comfy too. Ideally located to walk in to the city. Having been in communication with Judy & Mark a number of times prior to our visit, they replied promptly and all my questions were answered. Highly recommend and would certainly use again. Thank you.
Clean with a great location
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.
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.
Wonderful flat for our large family!
We had a wonderful stay! The flat was beautiful, spacious and close to everything! We loved the location - nice walk or quick bus to old town. Thank you Mark and Judy!
