Overview

About the property

2-bedroom apartment for four with fabulous views across Edinburgh

Learmonth Court is an elegant art deco mansion, set back in a quiet private road within landscaped gardens. It has the security of a resident caretaker and has lifts to the apartment, which enjoys amazing views from its 4th floor location. Perfectly situated, it is a 15 minute walk to the start of the attractions at the West End of Princes Street, a 5 minute walk to the local Waitrose supermarket and a 2 minute walk to the local restaurant and bar. It is regarded as a home from home by our guests who have rated it 5 stars and have come back year after year, loving the comfy beds, the sofas dressed with plump cushions and throws, and the well equipped kitchen. Our guests tell us how they love sitting at the bay window after a hard day's sightseeing, enjoying the view over the roof tops to the stunning Fettes college and beyond to the Kingdom of Fife. Then, enjoying a peaceful night sleep in one of the 2 double bedrooms (one of which can be made up as a twin) with its fresh white bed linen. We have now completely renovated the bathroom and kitchen, which features a twin oven and ceramic hob, along with integrated fridge, freezer, washer/dryer, and dishwasher. Overall, the apartment is furnished to a high standard with wireless broadband just another feature in the all inclusive price shown. All-in-all, you will find the apartment very comfortable - a real home from home.

We welcome you and we are certain you will enjoy your stay!

Excellent Edinburgh Apartment

  • 5 of 5

This lovely apartment is in a great location just a few minuted walk to Edinburgh's West End. It is beautifully furnished, and the owners could not be more helpful.

We had a very enjoyable week taking in the fabulous Jazz Festival. A big plus to us was being able to park right outside.

Lovely apartment, well equipped and in fantastic location.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week in Edinburgh. The apartment was very comfortable and had everything we needed. The location was super and we were able to walk into the center of Edinburgh.

Euan and Avril made the whole process very easy. We would definitely use this property again and recommend it to others.

Great holiday flat!

  • 5 of 5

This is our go-to flat for visiting Edinburgh, and the second time we've stayed here. It's very close to the bus stop but also easy to walk down to the grocery (Waitrose), Stockbridge, or Princes Street. Beautiful view from the window, too! Perfect for a family get-away. Euan has always been very responsive with pre-arrival logistics, and we've never had an issue!

Nice Apartment - Enjoyed Our Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a very nice stay in this apartment. Our travel plans only allowed us one night there; I would have liked to stay longer. The apartment is nicely furnished and in a safe neighborhood. The only drawback we found is that the apartment is a distance from the train station and required a taxi.

Perfect Spot!

  • 5 of 5

Located in a beautiful building. Close to shops and restaurants. The place was clean and exactly as it was described. The view from the window was so beautiful. We would stay again if we come back to Edinburgh.

The property (EH4 1PD) is located off Queensferry Road, near to the Dean Bridge. This places it right on the edge of the New Town and a short walk to Princes Street and on to the Castle, Old Town, and the Royal Mile. The Dean Gallery and the National Gallery of Modern Art are only 5 Minutes walk and the picturesque former village of Stockbridge is only 10 minutes walk. Murrayfield Stadium is also within walking distance or a short taxi ride. Queensferry Road is the main route out of Edinburgh to the Forth Road Bridge and on to the Highlands of Scotland. There are also excellent bus links 100 metres from the apartment and Waverley and Haymarket rail stations are both a short bus or taxi trip. Edinburgh Airport is only 15 minutes away by taxi.
