Very comfortable and in a great location!

Our family of 6 though enjoyed the accommodations of this property. The location is perfect in Edinburgh. We enjoyed easy access to shops and restaurants and even took a long walk back from the beach!

Great location. Comfortable apartment

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic location. You will be within walking distance of the great sites in Edinburgh Scotland. Comfortable apartment. Definitely enough room for our family of five. Large kitchen was great for making meals instead of going out. We stayed for five nights, and wish we had stayed longer.

Great location in Edinburgh

  • 5 of 5

We spent three nights at Francois’ Castle Terrace apartment in Edinburgh in June 2017 and wished we could have stayed longer. The location is excellent, about a 10-15 minute walk to Edinburgh Castle and the Royal Mile. The Grassmarket area is even closer and has plenty of good pubs and restaurants.

Besides the location, we enjoyed the large rooms, high ceilings, interesting décor, and historic feel of the apartment. The living room and main bedroom are particularly spacious. The smaller front bedroom has a nice view of the castle but also had a lot of street noise at night.

Ottimo!

We loved staying at Francois' place. The apartment is in a great location, with a nice view of Edinburgh castle out the back bedroom window. Great bars and restaurants all within walking distance. Thanks for helping to make out stay memorable!

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

Great location and accommodation for a city centre visit. Would highly recommend staying here and far better than a hotel stay, with the added facilities included.

West End comfy quiet flat.

  • 4 of 5

Conveniently located within walking distance of most of the must see destinations in Edinburgh, our spacious upstairs flat adjacent to St. Cuthbert's Church was an excellent fit for us: The kitchen was well equipped making it relaxing to eat breakfasts at the living room table overlooking the busy street below before heading out mid-mornings to explore, and even staying in several nights for dinner, as a good market was close by which provides roasted chickens to order. The bathroom was quite adequate with a terrific shower, and as a bonus, a towel warmer which also served as a drying station for freshly laundered items! The one thing we feel could be easily improved is the poor lighting, making it difficult to read in the evenings.

All in all though, a terrific fit for us, making our two weeks in Edinburgh that much more enjoyable.
