“Great location,lovely apartment,fab city!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

We spent 2 nights here during February half term.Liz;the owner was v helpful in sending through information & details beforehand and everything in terms of her directions & our arrival went to plan.

The apartment was a great size with a big open plan living/dining room & 2 good sized bedrooms.The kitchen was well equipped and the bathroom,though a little dated, was clean.

Overall the apartment provided all we needed.

2 minor points were the car parking space was v narrow (not the fault of the owner) & the king size bed was quite hard. We like firm mattresses but this was very hard and led to very achy bones and stiff necks both mornings.

“I really enjoyed this awesome apartment”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2014 for a stay in August 2013

This wonderful apartment was very ideal base for me and my 10-year old daughter during the Edinburgh festival. It takes only 2-3 minutes to walk to Royal mile and 5 minutes to the Hollyrood palace and 10 minutes to the central station. The location is just perfect. This house was really cozy and well equipped and you can spend your holiday like you are at your own home. Liz, our host, maintained her place in flawless condition and she gave us many tips to have a comfortable stay. I would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone who want to visit Edinburgh, especially in the high season.

“A stylish and comfortable apartment in a great position.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

This year was our second stay at Buchanan Court for the Fringe Festival, and it's a perfect base. We bring the car for trips outside the city, so appreciate the secure parking, but the flat is an easy walk from the very centre of town. It's also immaculately clean, comfortable and well-equipped and Liz is a pleasure to deal with. Highly recommended!

“Comfortable and great location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

We really enjoyed our stay in Edinburgh - this accommodation was very clean, comfortable and allowed for easy walkable access to central historic Edinburgh. Liz was very helpful and was able to facilitate a change in our length of stay due to illness. I have recommended the facilities for older travelers however they need to be fit older travelers - my eighty year old parents were able to manage the stairs but some may find that a challenge.

“Family Adventure in Edinburgh”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012 for a stay in July 2012
1
person found this review helpful

We spent a week at this lovely, ideally located apartment in July,
2012 for a family vacation. The owner, Liz, could not have been more
wonderful. She was very responsive and friendly from the first email
enquiry and throughout our stay. The apartment is as lovely as the
pictures indicate, with warm vibrant furnishings and many thoughtful
touches. Having rented many apartments in the US, I was thrilled to
find so many nice little details like big thirsty bath towels,
dishwashing soap, glass cleaner, laundry soap, plenty of hangers, etc.
Small details, but so nice to have those basics covered. The
furnishings have been chosen with style and taste, which makes it a
lovely place to stay and made me feel more at home. I used the kitchen
heavily and was very pleased with it. The area was quiet and peaceful
and yet very convenient to everything--the best of both. Coming from
Texas, we were amazed at the concept of windows without screens but
happily opened them wide and enjoyed the cool air. The apartment is
located less than five minutes from Holyrood Palace and Park and
literally 1 minute off of the Royal Mile. There was a Starbucks right
there and a Tesco Metro store about 5 minutes walk away. All the
attractions in the center of Edinburgh were an easy walk from the
apartment. Especially nice was the proximity of Holyrood Park. We went
to the Castle and museums, etc, one time but we went to Holyrood Park
to walk every day. It is an amazing oasis in the middle of the city.
Edinburgh is a beautiful, cultured historic city. Buchanan Court was
the perfect base for exploring it all. Thanks Liz! We loved it and
hope to visit again!
