Great stay

  • 5 of 5

Very quiet, clean, well maintained cosy flat. The listing description is accurate. Well located: little riverway to go to the seafront or to the bus/train station. 20 minutes by bus to the city centre, 5 minutes on the train. I would recommend it to a friend.

Great escape!!

  • 5 of 5

My Partner and I wanted a relaxing, cheap break for a couple of days and stumbled on this little diamond in the rough! Its not huge, but not small, its quirky style and well used space makes it feel like a home away from home.

Its so close to the bustling centre of Edinburgh, yet only a five minute train ride away, so you still get a little rural with your stay in the big city. There is also a handy 24 hour asda very close by for those little things like milk and bread.

I would reccommend sensible shoes for your trip, because there is alot of walking involved, and the last thing you want is to be traipsing around with sore feet!

We really enjoyed our stay with Trish, she made us feel very welcome, gave a great orientation and has information for everything in a handy folder and thousands of leaflets for places to go.

Thanks very much x

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. If you are a keen walker the comfortable shoes is a good option. The apt is less than 5 minutes walk to the train station . The train takes 5 minutes and then you reach Waverly station Princes Street . Trish

True to description

  • 4 of 5

Comfortable/modest flat between the city and Portabello. Smaller than anticipated but well appointed. Fine for couple. Found it a bit too cramped for 3 (wife and 15 year old daughter) Close to train and good bus transportation. Need to be a walker. Would recommend for budget minded traveller. Very quiet and clean. The price was right.

Value for Money

  • 5 of 5

This Brunstane flat is the ideal location for anyone seeking access to both the seaside and all that the city of Edinburgh (which is only a short 8 minute journey by rail) has to offer. The flat is very comfortable and well appointed and we have no hesitation in recommending it.

Apartamento pequeñito pero con todo lo necesario.

  • 4 of 5

La estancia estuvo muy bien, la anfitriona ( Trish ) muy amable y el apartamento, aunque pequeñito. tenía todo lo necesario.

Muy cerca se encuentra la estación de tren que comunica rápidamente con Edimburgo.

Lo recomendamos sin ninguna duda.

Nice easter holidays

  • 4 of 5

The flat is very clean and big enough for two persons. The most time you stay out. Its only 10 minutes walk to the beach with a nice promenade.

Its possible to go to the city per bus or train. The bus cost a little bit more and takes longer to the city. With the train its only 6minutes to the city. Trish is very friendly. A nice trip to Edinburgh.

Nochmal auf deutsch:

Sehr saubere, kleine Ferienwohnung. Ist ausreichend für 2 Personen. Zum Strand sind es 10min zu Fuß. Dort ist eine sehr schöne strandpromenade und ein nettes Restaurant (sehr leckeren Fisch und Steak).

In die Stadt kann man per Bus oder Bahn. Der bus ist etwas teurer und braucht länger (25min). Mit dem Zug sind es 6min bis ins Zentrum. Wir empfehlen eine Tour in eine Whisky destillerie und anch Loch Ness in die Highlands.
