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

Looking through all the reviews for Pilrig's House, this place had a lot to live up to and it certainly did from the moment we arrived which was met with a beautiful bouquet of flowers, chocolates and Champagne for my wife who was celebrating her 50th Birthday. The generosity of the owners was beyond compare and the apartment itself is... More

I cannot say enough when it comes to Pilrig house and Debbie. I stayed for 5 nights with my 24 year old niece. Debbie provided wonderful information before we arrived for the types of places we wanted to see and she also helped us while we were there. She suggested Capital Tours and I'm so glad she did. We met... More

Most warm welcome and greeting by Debbie and Philip, even helped with some of the luggage. We enjoyed 5 fabulous nights and found the extensive information of Edinburgh that Debbie gave us very helpful. We felt like we really have found our home away from home. The apartment exceeded our expectations. We had all the comforts of home including heavenly... More

We stayed her for 3 nights for a mini-moon break after our wedding, and we couldn't have picked a more perfect place to stay. We stayed in the Balfour apartment, and were greeted by Philip who gave us a quick tour and lots of information about places to go and see / eat / drink while we were in Edinburgh.... More
