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!

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.

Gorgeous apartment in central Edinburgh

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 3 nights in July 2016, 2 adults and 2 kids. This is a beautiful ground floor apartment, very spacious, decorated and furnished with style throughout. The lounge /kitchen is huge with comfy seating for 6+ people and the kitchen is sleek and modern. Both bedrooms are large, both doubles - and we had an extra single in the larger room too. Great location for all the sights in Edinburgh - 5-10 min walk to Princes St, and lots of lovely cafes and restaurants nearby. Highly recommended.

Comfort + Covenience = Perfection

  • 5 of 5

We arrived late morning and Veronique's daughter greeted us warmly and assisted with our luggage. Veronique said that the apartment would be ready in a couple of hours, so we set off to explore the neighborhood. Upon our return she asked if we had any questions and made sure we had her phone number.

The apartment was immaculate, tastefully decorated and had so many thoughtful touches to make it feel like home - - comfortable beds, excellent shower, big fluffy towels and a Krups coffee pot. The kitchen was a dream and included a washer and dryer.

There is a Tesco Express within two blocks. The neighborhood is quiet and has many restaurants and cafes.

We did have a rental car but seldom used it. We would not hesitate to return and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Edinburgh is a clean, vibrant and friendly city and we loved our time here.

Beautiful accomodation

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely, bright well equipped apartment with large comfortable rooms. We discovered an array of groceries had been left for us which were very gratefully received. Such a pleasure to stay here, very central for Edinburgh,s attractions & the owner was particularly helpful with parking. We would not hesitate to return

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.
