Overview

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Edinburgh - Carlton House

1 bedroom apartment to sleep 3 in Edinburgh's historic New Town

Designed by the architect William Playfair in the middle of the 19th century, Carlton Terrace, along with the adjacent Regent and Royal Terraces, forms part of Edinburgh's prestigious New Town district.

This comfortable one bedroom apartment within Carlton House has recently been refurbished and furnished. Situated on Carlton Terrace, one of Edinburgh's most elegant cobbled streets, this second floor apartment is in a prime location for the city centre attractions as well as its famous viewpoints such as Calton Hill & Arthur's Seat. The Royal Mile and Princes Street are both only a 10 minute walk away.

The apartment's position at the rear of the building ensures privacy, tranquillity and a south facing aspect.

Please note, this is a non smoking apartment.

Local Vicinity: As you walk out of the front door of Carlton House and face London Road Gardens, it is difficult to believe you are only a 5 minute walk from the vibrant restaurant and entertainment district of the East End of Edinburgh. The Playhouse Theatre which stages the latest musicals and shows is a 5 min. walk away and Harvey Nichols and John Lewis department stores are also within 5-10 mins. walk. Add another 5 mins. walk and you'll reach the shopping district of Princes Street and George Street.

Parking: Street parking is available on Carlton Terrace on a metered basis from 08:30-17:30 Mon-Fri but with max. stay 4 hours at any one time. Outside of these times, parking is free. You are virtually guaranteed to find a place right outside the property at any time.

Highly recommended apartment

  • 5 of 5

First, Mark - the owner - is a top bloke. Extremely helpful and always seems to have a minute to talk when you call up.

Second, the apartment is fantastic. All smartly furnished, very clean and spacious. And we were less than 10 minutes away from Princes street by foot. An extremely generous price for the high standard that is provided.

The description of the apartment is very accurate, and even though the third person takes the sofa bed in the front room, it never once felt cramped.

And there's a great French bakery 2 minutes walk away...but Mark'll tell you all about that when you arrive.

Highly recommended!

Great apartment in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is on the top floor of an exquisite building, very well appointed. The two of us found it extremely comfortable. We didn't spend much time in it as we were put on the town most of our visit, but cooking, dining, and hanging out would certainly be comfortable here. The bed was very comfortable, the wooden shutters let us block out the early morning light, and all furnishings were top notch.

The location is 15 minutes from the tram, 25 to old town by foot. It's on a very quiet street, and features a lovely view of Arthur's seat from the windows. Local amenities were only a few minutes away.

I would highly recommend this as a place to stay in Edinburgh if a little bit of walking doesn't bother you.

Thanks for the place to stay and the flexibility, Mark!

Excellent flat near Calton Hill

  • 5 of 5

This is a comfortable, quiet, and private flat in a Georgian terrace, with views over trees and back gardens to Arthur's Seat. It has high ceilings, is bright and airy, and comes fully equipped with washer/dryer, dishwasher, TV/video, and music system. The location is convenient for buses, the tram, and tourist sites including Calton Hill, Holyrood Palace and park, the Royal Mile, and Princes Street. Mark, the owner, is very helpful and accommodating.

Our stay last year was so enjoyable that we returned for a longer period this year, and we plan to make this our home base for future visits to Edinburgh. This quiet, well maintained, elegant flat is highly recommended.

Superb home from home

  • 5 of 5

The property was beautifully appointed, whilst remaining homely and comfortable. The location is perfect, just a 10-15 minute walk to Princes Street or the Old Town, yet far enough away that peace and quiet is all you wake up to. We even saw squirrels! I have already recommended it to friends, and it will be my first point of call on my next visit to Edinburgh.

Perfectly peaceful

  • 5 of 5

This flat was the perfect spot to relax after the hustle and bustle of sightseeing. The location was within walking distance of attractions, but set apart enough that we felt like we were getting away from typical tourist spots. It was well stocked with everything needed to stay in and cook. It was well decorated and comfortable. The owner was very prompt with replies and very pleasant to work with. I highly recommend this property!

Edinburgh is steeped in history and as well as providing a city break location, it is also ideally situated for excursions to the beaches and golf courses of East Lothian and Fife.

The city is famous for its Georgian architecture, its open spaces and also its festivals, notably the world's largest arts festival in August and Hogmanay at New Year. The cosmopolitan feel of the city owes its thanks to its foreign visitors, university students and of course the local residents.

A walking tour of Edinburgh's architectural highlights starts on your doorstep and should go on to include the Royal Mile and the Scottish Parliament which are both within a very short distance.

Calton Hill, situated just behind Carlton Terrace is a must for any visit to Edinburgh as it offers fine views of the city and across to Fife and East Lothian. Holyrood Park with Arthur's Seat and Salisbury Crags are also within easy walking distance and here it is easy to forget you are in a city at all.
