Overview

About the property

2-bed apartment to sleep 7 just off Edinburgh's Royal Mile

Just off Royal Mile. Sleeps 7 (8 if someone's happy to sleep on the sofa!)

Main bedroom: single + double bed

Second bedroom: double bed

Living room: sofa-bed (142 cm wide) + regular sofa

Shower room/loo

Kitchen: all mod cons (except tumble-dryer - there's a clothes horse for wet laundry :)

WIFI, bills, linen and towels included.

Metered parking (on-street); NCP car-parks (v. close); free parking (about 20-25 mins' walk)

Located in the heart of Edinburgh’s Old Town, just off the Royal Mile this home from home is a light and airy period property. It offers unrivalled access to all that Edinburgh has to offer: among others, the Castle, the Palace, John Knox’s House, St Giles' Cathedral and the Scottish Parliament are all within easy walking distance. There are some great bars and restaurants in the area but, if you want to dine at home, the flat boasts a fully equipped kitchen with everything you might need to prepare a home cooked meal.

St Mary's Street: St Mary's Street has two award-winning restaurants, Empires, a warm and inviting Turkish haven and David Bann, serving excellent vegetarian produce. And local pubs the Waverley and the World’s End each have bags of character. There are supermarkets in the area but the closest grocery shop is just at the end of the road on the Royal Mile.

Beaches: Edinburgh’s closest beach is at Portobello, a 10-minute drive from the centre. A little further afield, within a 20-minute drive you will find Seton Sands and further still (40-minute drive) Aberdour's Silver Sands (my favourite beach in the area). The East Coast, within a 30-minute drive towards North Berwick, also has beautiful beaches to explore

Golf facilities: The home of golf, St Andrew's, is a 90-minute drive away and well worth a visit, whether you are a golf enthusiast or not. The golf course and University are world famous and the beaches are beautiful. There are many more world class courses in East Lothian, in Gullane, North Berwick and the surrounding areas (where you'll also find excellent beaches - see above!).

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Elspeth,



Thanks for the rent of the apartment. It was perfect for our 4 day break. Great location and warm after a days sightseeing in the cold air.



Once again thanks.

Nice and convenient

  • 5 of 5

The owner was very accommodating and provided us a key code ahead of time as we would not have cell service. The apartment is as described, and VERY convenient. Everything in Edinburgh is only a short walk from the apartment including Waverly. You absolutely will not find anything better situated in this price range.

Great location, however apartment a little dated

  • 4 of 5

Stayed here march 2018 a great location with a great host who let us check in early

Apartment has everything you need just a little dated but would stay here again if available

Only downside is the £150 returnable deposit which took over a week to pay back which I can't quite understand

If your visiting Edinburgh then I would highly recommend this place

Perfect location very close to train station and ideally placed to get to most places in Edinburgh on foot

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

The flat was even better than what we were expecting. We have everything we need and instant answer from the owner (it makes our stay easier). The location is absolutely perfect, in the city centre but at the same time inside a quite street. So you don't have to be worry about the noise. If I have to visit Edinburgh again I will choose this flat without hesitate.

Great location and clean.

  • 4 of 5

Amazing location although being so central does mean the front bedroom is noisy. Apartment was clean and there were clear instructions re the heating etc. Sofa bed was surprisingly comfy!

Great centrally located property

  • 5 of 5

Flat is very centrally located, a minute's walk from the royal mile. It's very spacious and was clean, well equipped and as described. The information supplied ahead of and during our stay was complete and helpful (directions, restaurant recommendations, etc). Noise from the road outside was noticeable in the front rooms, but was not loud enough to impact sleep, and had to be expected in a city centre main road. The bedroom at the back was very quiet as was the building as a whole. We would definitely recommend.
