Enter through the giant doors of this grand old school into a ground floor contemporary apartment flooded with natural light and opulent furnishings.
As the peace and tranquillity of Holyrood Park is literally on your doorstep, the Old School apartment offers you the freedom to explore miles of walks and, after a brief trek to the top of Arthur’s Seat, the opportunity to view this historic city from the highest point in Edinburgh. The park is also home to other must-see attractions including the Scottish Parliament building; the Palace of Holyroodhouse where Her Majesty the Queen often visits with other members of the Royal Family; and Dynamic Earth offering fascinating tours of the earth exhibits. And the charm of the Royal Mile and its many attractions is just a short stroll away.
With royalty as neighbours, it is fitting that you also experience some of the grandeur of royalty – albeit on a smaller scale - by staying in this former school, the most commanding building overlooking the Royal park.
New to the holiday rental market, this studio apartment offers luxury boutique accommodation with all the extras you would expect from a five star hotel - but not at a princely sum!
This studio apartment – which sleeps two people - is on the ground floor of a tower in an historic old school, with spectacular views over Holyrood Park and the cliffs of Salisbury Crags, which lead up to the famous peak of Arthur’s Seat.
This peaceful, individually designed studio apartment - the epitome of urban glamour but with the comfort of home - is particularly suited to couples enjoying a city break or romantic getaway, or business travellers who want that little bit extra without adding to their expenses!
Underfloor heating, the best of Egyptian cotton bed linen, an opulent king size bed with a high quality pocket-sprung mattress, fluffy white bath towels, a feature fireplace, sumptuous velvet curtains, flat screen TV and DVD player (with a selection of DVDs provided), chandeliers, an iPod docking station, designer furniture and accessories, along with the well-fitted shower-room with luxury toiletries, all give you a feeling of a boutique hotel suite.
But the Old School apartment also gives you so the added benefit of independence and flexibility. Cook a romantic meal in the fully fitted contemporary kitchen, with the dining area overlooking the courtyard. Or take the travel rug (provided) and head out for a picnic in Holyrood Park. Or you can take a short stroll to wine and dine in the many nearby city centre restaurants.
The apartment sits within communal gardens and also benefits from free private parking and free wifi.
