Lovely apartment, every comfort including tea bags, coffee, delicious buttter cookies, fruit, etcetera. Philip and Debbie could not have done more to make certain we had a wonderful stay, including a tour in their car around the city and labeled maps to help us get around on our own. A nice walk to the city , but buses are extremely... More

My husband and I traveled to Scotland for the Ryder Cup in September. We booked our stay at the Pilrig House one year in advance. During that time Debbie helped me schedule a trip to the Highlands, trains into Gleneagles, and the car hire. She and her husband Phillip made our stay in Scotland the perfect trip! Our apartment was... More

My wife and I stayed at the Pilrig House during our five day visit to Edinburgh in mid September. We could not have made a better choice. The location was ideal for us and the apartment provided everything we could have needed. Debbie and Phillip are excellent managers and two of the nicest people you would ever want to meet.... More

We stayed in the Balfour apartment for a week in July so that we could visit Edinburgh and also travel to the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow. The apartment was brilliant - beautifully furnished and equipped with everything you could possibly want. The location was fantastic - situated in the middle of Pilrig Park, so you wouldn't know that you were... More

I stayed with my family in the Balfour Apartment at Pilrig House for a week in August of this year. We were in Edinburgh to see theater at the Fringe, and in particular to see our son who was performing in one of the many (thousands?) of productions. The Balfour Apartment, a two bedroom, fully appointed suite, was delightful. It... More

My partner and I visited Scotland to celebrate one of life's milestones. The time we spent at Pilrig House with our amazing hosts Debbie and Philip made the time in Scotland incredible. We found the amenities in the apartment far exceeded our expectations having never stayed in a vacation apartment on any previous trips. The bar has now been set... More

My husband and I had the good sense and fortune to find the best place to stay in Edinburgh. It was the very first place I saw on VRBO and I looked no further! The stone building itself is a historical treasure surrounded by manicured gardens and looking over a landscaped park. The location is ideal for travelers, who like... More

I'm here now, relaxing on a comfortable bed after another long day of sight seeing. I'm here with my husband and two teen boys. When we arrived, the flat was already furnished with everything we could possibly need after a long journey, including, biscuits, tea, milk, fruit... The decor is lovely. The view of the park is beautiful. The area... More

My husband and I just returned from two wonderful weeks in Edinburgh. We stayed at the Pilrig House in the Balfour Apartment for both weeks and it couldn't have been more perfect. The apartment was so lovely. Spotless, beautifully decorated, quiet, and was appointed with everything we could possibly need. The amenities were top notch. Philip and Debbie are incredibly... More

It’s my pleasure to write this review of Pilrig House and it’s owners Phillip & Debbie. This was our first time renting a holiday apartment and we couldn’t have had a better experience. Pilrig House overlooks Pilrig Park, which provided terrific beauty and tranquility in the midst of the bustling city. The Park Apartment is charming, comfortable and cozy. Phillip... More
