“Outstanding !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2009

Wow, what a find! Travelling to Edinburgh for the Rugby League Magic Weekend our party size was constantly fluctuating between 2, 3 or 4 people so booking hotel rooms was difficult and potentially expensive possibly paying a single supplement. This apartment was ideal and flexible. The price is on par with one room in a city centre hotel so being able to accomodate further family members at short notice on the available sofa bed at no extra cost was great.
However, what sets this accomodation apart is the owner Diane's attention to detail. All the little touches were very much appreciated and make you feel like a very valued friend not just a paying guest. On our return we immediately booked again for next year as having to stay anywhere else in Edinburgh would be such a let down after this experience. We cant wait to go back. Thank you Diane

5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2007

I spent just over a week at 10 Glenfinlas Street with my 2-yr-old daughter. Everything about the property is absolutely superb and it really made our stay in Edinburgh extra special.

The apartment is in a historic Georgian house just off beautiful Charlotte Square in the New Town. The location is perfect with easy access to buses, supermarkets, shops and restaurants. It's also very convenient for exploring the city. The Royal Mile is about a 20 minute walk away, and Princes Street us just around the corner.

The apartment itself is huge and stunning, with a lovely large living room, a comfortable kitchen and decent-sized bedroom. Everything is extremely well maintained, sparkling clean and top quality. The amenities are great: tons of information about things to do in Edinburgh, nice satellite TV, CDs, adaptors and even a box of Legos for children.

Diane, the owner, is charming and very welcoming. Every day she cleans the apartment and stocks breakfast items in the fridge. It was nice having someone close by to answer questions.

All in all, we loved our stay and would not hesitate to go back. I would recommend this property to even the pickiest of travelers, it is spectacular.

Our travel group of seven friends took over the entire accommodation, two bed and breakfast rooms plus lower level apartment, for five days during Edinburgh Festival this year 2006. The house, the apartment and our rooms were gorgeous, comfortable, extremely convenient (including washer and dryer) on beautiful Charlotte Square (where a book fair was going on at the same time), and perfectly located for the Fest. The breakfast was top notch. We gathered in the livingroom of the apartment every night to finish our day together. We could as well have gathered in the common room where we had breakfast. The hostess, Diane Dickson, is a darling who was available to help us with any and every need. It was a great value as well. I know I sound like an advertisement but I am just so grateful that since I found the place (on the internet through another place recommended on TripAdvisor which had closed) and recommended it to our friends, everyone loved it so I feel like a hero.

  • Liked — charm
  • Disliked — two flights of stairs to b and b rooms
  • Tips/Secrets — if you have difficulty with stairs, book the apartment on the first level
