Guestbook comments from the owner

The apartment at 26A Abercromby Place in Edinburgh was much more than we expected. It is a very clean, beautifully decorated unit and included a washer and dryer . It was better stocked than we expected, and offered a quiet place to rest. Besides being centrally located, it was very close to a bus line, making it perfect for our site-seeing excursions. Our “proprietress” Veronique Johnston, was a gem, answering all our questions, providing helpful options for our dining trips and making certain that our needs were met. We can hardly wait for our next trip back to Edinburgh, and this will be the only apartment we will consider renting! Thanks again Veronique!

Beautiful, great location

  • 5 of 5

This was a great location to stay at with our three teenaged kids. Plenty of room to stretch out, comfortable and near everything. We really appreciate the ease of arrival and departure- and the welcome food basket was the perfect surprise after a long haul and late night arrival from the states. I would highly recommend! Thank you again.

Couldn't fault anything about our stay at the apartment - it was so central and finished to a very high standard. The owner has thought of everything and goes the extra mile to ensure a relaxing stress free stay!

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Bathed in light, so open, cheery, clean, and even larger than appeared in the pictures -- we were just so thrilled to have the opportunity to stay here. There even were fresh breakfast treats in the refrigerator! Every time we returned from exploring Edinburgh to this luxurious flat, we truly felt like we were home. We hated to leave --- it is very comfortable in every aspect, and so perfectly located -- everything is convenient. If you have the opportunity to stay here, you won't be dissappointed.

We are only 5 mins from Princes St in Edinburgh's elegant New Town area, and within walking distance of all the main tourist sights such as Edinburgh Castle, the Royal Mile and Holyrood Palace. The apartment is in a quiet location but still close to many restaurants and shops.

Abercromby Place is very central: less than 10 minutes walk from Waverley Station and 5 minutes from the Bus Station.

Parking in a nearby lane can be reserved in advance at no extra cost.
