“Great Location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2010

The apartment was very nice and modern and had everything you needed. It was in the perfect location, and we all had a great time. We will definately be booking here again when we next visit Edinburgh!

Excellent location, close to the Royal Mile and Waverley Station, yet quiet and peaceful. Beautifully maintained flat, attractive and comfortable and roomy enough for our group of 5 adults. Would definitely recommend to others and would stay there again.

Great flat for a couple, for friends, or for family. Clean, bright and spacious located right off the Royal Mile making it close toe everything in this wonderful city, but it is also quiet enough to get a perfect nights sleep.

We are two couples who travelled together. Apartment is very central, near to Waverley Station but is so quiet and comfortable. Despite it being very cold weather the apartment is very cosy and we only needed to put the heating on late one evening.
Top quality furnishings, bedding and towels. Kitchen had everything you would need although apart from breakfast, we sampled the excellent bars, cafes and restaurants.Tea, coffee and milk were already there for us. Liz met us and explained everything to us, recommended some places to visit, restaurants etc and couldn't be more helpful. We will definitely return to Edinburgh and to Athol Brae. Thanks for a lovely stay.

Travelled with five others to come up to Edinburgh to surprise a friend. Lovely apartment, great location, close to everything, very clean and modern. We opted for this apartment rather than a hotel due to the fact that all 6 of us could be in the same place together. Worked out cheaper for us all too. Secure entrance to the apartment. Very cosy too. The flat was well equipped with all the modern appliances you want. Thank you Liz for such great communication and making us feel so welcome. Lovely touches with the Cava, flowers on the bed, tea, coffee, etc. Was great to have free secure parking also.
