Overview

About the property

1 Bedroom, sleeps 2

We challenge you to find a more beautiful one bedroom apartment in Edinburgh!

Large first floor ( high ceilings) one bedroom flat overlooking a private garden in exclusive Georgian cul de sac, off Heriot Row.

The spacious first floor apartment comprises a large double bedroom with en suite. The kitchen area has a gas cooker/ fridge/freezer & dishwasher, and includes a utility area with washing machine & dryer.

The large living room, which overlooks the beautiful private Queen Street Gardens, has a separate dining area. All bedlinen, towels, pillows and duvets are provided.

The apartment is a few minutes from Waverley Station by taxi. Wemyss Place is just off Queen Street, which runs parallel to George Street. The main shopping area of Princes Street is within easy walking distance. The apartment also has a secure parking bay at the rear of the building.

The apartment is in a very quiet area and yet so close to all the amenities and attractions, within walking distance such as Edinburgh Castle, the Royal Mile, with Holyrood Palace a short drive away. There are many bars, restaurants, coffee shops and boutiques several minutes away in Rose Street.

Edinburgh's famous castle is especially beautiful. Upon entering the city, it commands immediate attention. The eye of the visitor is drawn to the impressive structure rising high above everything else on its sheer granite cliffs. There are incredible panoramic views from the upper stories of the castle, including a clear view of the distant sea. The castle sits high on the huge rock formation that juts out as if in defiance of any who would seek to invade Edinburgh. Castle Rock, as it is known, is inaccessible on three sides, and has a long, descending ridge on the fourth side.

Edinburgh is filled with historic and literary association: John Knox, Mary Queen of Scots, Robert Louis Stevenson, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (creator of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson), Alexander Graham Bell, Sir Walter Scott, and Bonnie Prince Charlie are all part of its past.

Perfect Apartment in Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Pippa, Paul & Sean were very helpful in making sure our stay in this apartment was wonderful. They are very organized, courteous, and professional.

The apartment is (as you can see from the photos) beautiful and was very clean. It is in a great location.

The kitchen is well equipped for making quick meals and/or full dinners. There are several convenient little grocery stores nearby in Stockbridge and on Princes Street.

The washer & dryer worked great (much better than those tiny all-in-one washer/dryer units).

It was nice to have a key to access the Queen Street Gardens.

The apartment is an easy 10 minute walk from the Airlink 100 bus stop for the bus to/from the airport. And it is an easy 15-20 minute walk to either the Waverley or Haymarket train stations.

The apartment is in a very central yet quiet location; quick walk to George Street or Stockbridge.

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is very light, spacious and comfortable. Very nice outlook onto the private gardens. It is situated on a no through road so is very quiet. The bedroom is very large and situated to the rear of the property and so is also very quiet.

I would recommend the apartment and would stay again.

Great property in a perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

Great location and a comfortable, well managed property. We were walking distance to most city attractions but enjoyed the quietness of a cul-de-sac. The property was nicer than we had expected. The management even left some basic supplies in the fridge to get us started (margarine, milk, fruit etc). I would definitely enjoy staying again and highly recommend this property to those traveling to Edinburgh.

New Years Eve 2014/15

  • 5 of 5

On our bucket list was to New Year in Edinburgh, at least once, so we decided it would be 2014, after perusing various options, hotels, B&Bs we went on the rentals website. As some of you know its always a bit of a risk, so you are reliant on the descriptions, photos and and reviews such as this at the first instance on any property. I am pleased to say out of many properties this stood out, it was in the right place (very right if you needed to be be near the Princes Street area but not on top of it - literally 10 mins walk) and it was an apartment in a beautiful old building, with access to a green area if you so wished. The apartment itself was lovely as you can see, it was very spacious and equipped to a high standard. All the guide notes were clear - including the parking which for us great as we travelled by car. If i changed anything it would be where the TV is located its a small thing but for me I would like it in the living area. The company we booked through were very helpful in responding to questions and everything went smoothly, so would definitely use them again too. All in all a great new year with great memories.
