Although situated on a main arterial road to the city centre, due to the apartment being set behind a row of shops, the noise was negligible. Very comfortable, spacious, clean, good facilities. Frequent buses to Centre. Downside parking!

We are just back from a two night stay in these apartments. The level of service received was excellent from start to finish. We received an email after booking to ask us how we would like the rooms set out (twin or double) as well as being given directions to the nearest 24 hour car park. The gentleman who greeted...

Surprisingly quiet flat in excellent location, about 1m south of the Royal Mile. Perfect base for climbing to Arthur's Seat and everything else I wanted to do in Edinburgh. Clean, welcoming, comfortably furnished and well laid out.

The apartment was well furnished and towels, shampoos, kitchen equipment etc. were all provided. The location is also very convenient with Arthur's seat just a 5 min walk away and the train station, castle & royal mile just a 10... More

I was greeted by Gary, who had stayed behind to let me in even though my flight was late and I did not arrive on time. He was very helpful - also when someone reversed into my rental car. The apartment is cosy and provides everything needed for doing a bit of quick cooking. It was nice and warm, -... More

Fantastic, really enjoyed our stay there. Location was a lovely base to explore all Edinburgh has to offer. Bus stop right outside or just a 20 min walk to the centre. Kitchen was well equipped and fantastic shower. TAKE ME BACK!!! :D

I stayed in apartment 2 at 7 Newingtown Road. It was a spacious apartment and was tastefully decorated and well fitted out. The apartment is in a good location with plenty shops and pubs around. Particularly suitable for those wishing to visit Holyrood Palace, Arthur's Seat, Salisbury Crags and the Scottish Parliament Buildings. It's a short walk to the Castle,... More

Apartments are located to the south of the City Centre just a short bus ride, or longer walk to the Old Town. Short walk to the Meadows and Arthurs Seat meaning location wise this is ideal for those wanting both city and outdoor activities. Apartment clean but in need of a little care and attention (loose tap handle). Booking efficient.... More
