A lovely stay, the owner was helpful and the small but very comfortable apartment was perfect for us. Thankyou
Comfy flat, ideal for stay.
We loved staying in Edinburgh, the New Town was fascinating, thank you
Thank you. We're really happy you had a good time.
This was a great place to stay. The location was very convenient for walking to center city.
We loved staying at Adrian’s place. It was clean and just the right size for 2 people. The kitchen was great and well equipped and the location was wonderful.
Location, location, location!
Close to shops, comfortable and cute. Well stocked with utensils and pots for cooking.
Excellent location to be able to wander around all of Edinburgh. The flat was clean and comfortable. Highly recommended.
The nearest beach to Edinburgh is at Portobello, east of the city centre. This is easily reached by bus or taxi. If you're heading that way, make sure you stop off at Portobello's old Victorian swimming baths for a steam or sauna in lovely tiled surroundings (Glenogle Baths is a similar heritage swimming pool 10 minutes' walk from the apartment, in Stockbridge).
The apartment is a 15-minute walk (£6 / 8-minute approx taxi ride) from Edinburgh's main Waverley train station. If you're coming by air, a taxi from the airport costs around £20. Alternatively, you can take a bus to Princes Street (£5 return) and either walk, or take a taxi (around £5) from there. Glasgow city centre is a 45 minute train ride away from Waverley Station.
Princes St/George St - main shopping /restaurant area - 5 minute walk
National Gallery of Scotland 10 minute walk
National Portrait Gallery 10 minute-walk
Traverse and Lyceum Theatres 10-minute walk
Usher Hall (classical music) 10-minute walk.
Edinburgh Castle and Royal Mile 20-25 minute walk
During the Edinburgh Festival, the apartment is within walking distance of the Edinburgh International Book Festival and the Assembly Rooms, as well as many other venues.
Within a 2-minute walk of the apartment, there is a selection of excellent cafes, a very good organic restaurant/bar (Iglu), a good Thai restuarant, a historic pub (Kays Bar) and two late-opening supermarkets (a Sainsbury's local and the independent Margiotta, which also has a free cashpoint). Down the hill a 5-minute walk, is Stockbridge village, which has a range of restaurants and services; up the hill 5 minutes are George Street and Princes St, which has the city's widest selection of bars, restaurants and shops.
