Stayed with a party of 5 which flat 1 was able to accommodate pretty well. The flat was very well equipped and spotless. The apartment block is situated on the corner of Calton Road and Old Tolbooth Wynd; about 1/2 way between North Bridge and Holyrood. By car, you'll need to approach from Calton Road, by foot you'll probably come... More

Great place. Great location a stones throw from the royal mile which serves as a brilliant base for your Edinburgh exploration. Equally close to Waverely station too so it doesn't take long to settle yourself in. The owner Liz is very friendly and only too happy to help you.We would stay again with our three young kids.

Booked this accommodation just off Royal Mile to visit Edinburgh with our American guests. It was in an excellent location an easy walk to the castle and other local places of interest, and we used the hop on /off buses to explore further afield, including the Royal Yacht Britannia. The flat was spotlessly clean and had everything you could need... More

We found the apartments exceptionally well fitted with good quality furnishings on laminate floors throughout. Kitchen equipment proved more than adequate for our self catering needs with the...

We completely enjoyed our visit. We were given suggestions and helpful hints before we arrived. The apartment was completely stocked, beyond what we had expected. We were personally greeted upon arrival and shown everything. The rooms were clean, the beds comfortable, the kitchen great! Plenty of hot water, games and videos, laundry appliance. The apartment is close to everything, 1/2... More

Good call about taking the address with you - we recommend it in our advance instructions, and also include a recommended approach route for drivers. Whilst the street is indeed small and atmospheric, it is literally just off the Royal Mile, just under the arch beside... More

Our family of four spent four nights here and had a wonderful time. The flat is clean, well equipped, and perfectly located for easily exploring the Royal Mile and Old Town. Groceries are easily found at Tesco Express five minutes away, and the train station is a fifteen minute walk with suitcases in tow. We hope to return to Edinburgh... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
4 star Visit Scotland accredited. Fully level, disabled access to ground floor apartment is now listed as Blair Angus Our prices are per apartment. We now offer 2 very beautiful apartments in an ideal location – OK, yes, we’re VERY biased. We are only 2 minutes walk from the Royal Mile, 7 minutes walk from the train station.-Within a modern luxury block, the apartment overlooks a beautiful courtyard. - A luxury oasis, just off the hustle and bustle of the Royal Mile. - Secure underground parking behind a roller door, off the street. - Wi-fi included. Our prices are per apartment, not per person. Each apartment will accommodate 4 in luxury, or up to 6 plus a baby in comfort. Our best rates are for stays of one week or more. We have preferred minimum stay of 3 nights - we can and will do less days, but at a higher price. We'll also be delighted to help you plan your stay in Edinburgh, if you wish; we're good at welcoming and friendly, personal service. Our ground floor apartment is disabled friendly - and probably suitable for wheelchair access. We'll be happy to help you find a huge selection of restaurants, bars, museums and spas very nearby. Welcome to Edinburgh! ... more   less
