Ignoring the long haul up 7 or so flights of stairs, this is easily the best accommodation I've stayed in on a break. Peter is incredibly focused on making sure visitors have a great time, so much so he's produced a great guide on the best local restaurants, recommending the steak and mussel bar which is a must visit.

These apartments are smack dab in the middle of the action in Edinburgh. We walked to all the main attractions nearby. Lots of great food and shopping right out the door. Apts have washer/dryer which was great (need better operating instructions though) and huge rooms. Only drawback is no parking. You have to pay to park and it is about... More

This apartment was outstanding! I booked it for my parents, my 12yo son, my husband, and me. My parents had the smaller queen bedroom with the en suite. My husband, son, and I shared the larger queen + twin bedroom. I thought I was booking a 2 bedroom, 1 bath... so the added En Suite was a great treat. I... More

Stayed here for two nights at the end of July. Being three adults and two children meant that staying in a hotel would have been difficult and expensive. So the apartment on castle terrace which slept five persons in two rooms solved that problem for us. Rates still aren't cheap but to be in central Edinburgh during peak season it... More

The Greyfriars apartments are in a fantastic city centre location, literally 2 minutes from Edinburgh castle and Royal Mile and therefore around 20 minutes leisurely walk from Holyrood Palace - really from a location perspective they are sensational. When you first see the apartments from the outside you find yourself wondering what you have done- they are located right next... More

Arrived at Castle Terrace Apartment just last week and we were very happy firstly with the location right at the back of the castle what a view to look at. Apartment has large livingroom and kitchen upstairs to the first bathroom next to a big double room with a triple room next door with en-suite. We were 5 woman and... More

We happened upon these apartments when looking for a centrally located hotel near the start of the Edinburgh Marathon. Hotels were booked. So I found these apartments. We reserved the 1 Parliament Square location. This could NOT have been better located for our long weekend in Edinburgh. After a long flight and drive into Edinburgh, we were able to find... More

From booking to check in - it was easy and no hassle. Derek met us when we arrived at the apartment and showed us around and explained how things worked. The apartment was so spacious. We were on the ground floor in a two bedroom apartment, which went up over two levels. The apartment was so spacious and less than... More

I booked the Parliament 1 Apartment for 5 people. The rooms were just as nice as the pictures online. I chose this space since it was very close to the Waverly train station that we came in from London. The building is old, but it was situated in such a great location that it didn't matter! There is a coffee... More
