“Auatralian Travellers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

We enjoyed Athol Brae the accommodation was clean and well laid out we had travelled for hours so were grateful for the comfortable beds and having two bathrooms was very convenient. Although their were just the two of us this facility would just as easily suit a large family or two couples. The Royal Mile was at the top of the cobblestone street and the bus route went right past. We used the buses a lot and found the guides on the Hop On's which were also within walking distance knew their stuff. Thanks for a great apartment Liz we were hard pressed to find better during our tour of Scotland.
Kind Regards
Barbara and Richard

What a joy to arrive here with directions and help from Liz who was so accommodating letting us in early, Sean who was here to greet us was lovely and helpful. After two dreadful nights in a B and B in the city that I can only describe as Fawlty Towers where we had no sleep and the hygiene was appalling, we were delighted to find this wee gem so clean, comfortable and equipped with everything we could possibly need. We will be back for sure and will happily recommend to family and friends. Thank you so much Liz and Sean.

I can't imagine a better place for location to the Royal Mile and the Waverly Train Station. You literally walk out the door, up the cobblestones, and you are on the Royal Mile and all the hot spots of Edinburgh. We stayed a week, and it was nice to have our luggage in one place, and then do day trips via the train station. The flat was very clean, spacious, light and bright, with two bedrooms and separate baths for each which made it nice for two couples staying there. We were in the bedroom with two twin beds (very comfortable firm mattresses), and the bathroom was large with excellent shower and tub. Toiletries, hair dryer, WiFi, washing machine + drying racks were provided to help make things easy. Having a nice kitchen available helped with breakfasts and snacks. Since we were so close to all the restaurants, we ate dinners out and enjoyed all the Scottish foods and drinks. Liz did a great job of recommending various places, and we utilized many of the suggestions she offered in her notebook and emails. The personal greeting was appreciated as she accommodated our late night arrival when we first got to Edinburgh, and we most definitely would recommend Atholl Brae to others. Thanks Liz for helping to make our introduction to Scotland such a positive experience!

Great apartment and great location. The apartment was spotless, and extremely well laid out. Very close to the Royal Mile and Waverly train station. This was extremely convenient for us as we stayed for 1 week but took 2 day trips to St. Andrews and Stirling from Waverly. Liz was very responsive to all of our needs. Highly recommend.

Immaculate flat, with everything needed. Owners were very helpful in advance in helping us plan our journey and stay. Excellent location nestled between the Royal Mile and the Parliament. Will definitely return, and have already discussed our next trip.
