About the property

Beautiful 2 bed appartment with balcony and stunning view

Our guests are sure to love the super plush Royal Park View apartment, located just on the edge of Holyrood Park.

Close to the University area, this stunning two bedroom apartment benefits from free parking and wifi and has a balcony to enjoy the views over Holyrood Park, the cliffs of Salisbury Crags and the famous peak of Arthur’s Seat. The charm of the Royal Mile, winding up to Edinburgh Castle, is just a walk away. This property, which sleeps four people, will allow you to enjoy both the natural beauty and vibrancy of Scotland’s capital city.

The Royal Park View, a top floor apartment which is accessed via a lift.

The apartment has two bedrooms – one of which has a super comfortable king size bed and en-suite shower-room and the other has two single beds.

There is a bright lounge with dining area, plentiful comfortable seating and a feature fire for cosy nights in. There are sliding doors from this lounge to a balcony which has uninterrupted (and probably the finest) views over Holyrood Park and to Arthur’s Seat, with a bistro table and chairs provided.

Whilst some of the best restaurants in Edinburgh are just a short stroll away, you have the benefit of a spacious kitchen with all mod cons if you wish to prepare meals in. There is also a fresh and contemporary bathroom.

The fabrics are sumptuous and the colour palette is rich and luxurious, including the use of red with dark grey, pistachio green and relaxing neutrals. Designer wallpaper and accessories give a contemporary countryside twist.

The interiors are being designed by Gillian Taylor, winner of the Best Luxury Self-Catering Apartments 2016 Award in Edinburgh in the Lux 2016 Hotel & Spa Awards; recipient of Trip Advisor’s Certificate of Excellence award and whose work has been featured in national magazines and newspapers.

One of the many attractions on the doorstep is the Palace of Holyrood House where Her Majesty the Queen often visits with other members of the Royal Family. With royalty as neighbours, it is fitting that you also experience some of the grandeur of royalty in this beautiful apartment!

This peaceful, individually designed and spacious apartment is the epitome of urban glamour but with the comfort of home. You will be spoiled with the best of Egyptian cotton bed linen, comfortable beds with pocket-sprung mattresses, fluffy white bath towels, a feature fire, sumptuous velvet curtains, flat screen TV and DVD player (with a selection of DVDs provided), designer furniture and accessories, and a well-fitted shower-room and bathroom with Scottish Fine Soaps toiletries.

The location of The Royal Park View is truly incredible! On your doorstep is Holyrood Park, with the peak of Arthur’s Seat which was recently named as being one of the world’s best ‘city hikes’.

Just a stone’s throw away are many restaurants, shops, the recently refurbished Commonwealth swimming pool and gymnasium, Edinburgh Festival venues, attractions such as the Scottish Parliament building, Dynamic Earth, The Palace of Holyroodhouse and yet more parkland at the expansive ‘The Meadows’. The Royal Mile is a 10 - 15 minute walk away and the elegant Princes Street is a lovely stroll of about a mile. Alternatively, you can jump on a bus, with a stop 5 minutes walk from the apartment. Edinburgh airport has fantastic links to the city centre by bus, tram or taxi and Waverley Train Station is just over a mile away.

Beautiful apartment in perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent a week in this lovely apartment that is ideally situated so that we could enjoy the City but we still had countryside views of Arthur's Seat from the balcony. We had absolutely everything we needed and the apartment was really beautiful and spotlessly clean. We were able to hop on and off buses about 5 minutes walk away and we were in the City within 10 minutes. Transport links were so easy and we hardly used our car at all. There is free parking for the apartment so that was really handy too. Some of the other places we looked at we right in the centre of the City and charges were around £20 per day. We definitely intend to return. It was just lovely.

Would highly recommend and would stay again for so many reasons! The apartment was spacious and clean. Loved the views of Arthur’s Seat. It was quiet, yet easy to walk to all the main attractions.

Beautiful view

Perfect spot for our time in Edinburgh. It was quiet and in walking distance of some small neighborhood eateries. Also, close to a bus stop so no need to take a rental car into city center. Highly recommend.

Beautiful views, excellent location. Memorable experience

  • 5 of 5

The property is beautiful and well maintained and equipped with a lovely terrace overlooking Holyrood Park, Salisbury Crags and Arthur's Seat. The property is in a very nice neighborhood and is convenient to the University of Edinburgh, the Royal Mile and Princess Street. There is a well equipped kitchen with grocery shopping nearby. Being able to park there is an amenity that is essential in Edinburgh, if you plan to drive. The owner is very helpful, providing excellent instructions. We were in Edinburgh for our daughter's graduation and staying here made our trip even more memorable.

Melanies apartment was an excellent abode for our Edinbutgh visit.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was delightful. Quiet and in an excellent city location . Close to lots of pubs and restaurants and buses to the city every 5 minutes.. with a beautiful view of Arthurs Seat and walks. We walked to and from the city on several occasions rather than bussing it. The apartment was modern and tastefully decorated and very well stocked with all you need. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Amazing flat in Edinburgh overlooking Arthur's Seat

  • 5 of 5

Family of 4 stayed 6 nights in June and had a wonderful time in Edinburgh and staying in this flat was perfect! We debated staying closer to downtown, but decided to stay by the park and we are so glad we did. The flat is very clean, very quiet and very comfortable! Two baths and three very comfortable beds. We all slept so soundly. We were on the balcony every day and enjoyed the amazing view. Flat has everything you need - plenty of room in the kitchen. We loved being so close to Holy Rood park and enjoyed people/dog watching, hiked up to Arthurs Seat, and with two runners in the family - there were many early runs around the park. Beautiful location, wonderful flat, still close enough to all the retaurants and shops. You can't go wrong!
