My family of four stayed at Holyrood Apartment and we loved it! The location is fantastic - not only was it a block from the Royal Mile and two from the Palace, but there is a Tesco Express in the same block! This made life very convenient for grabbing supplies before heading out for a day of tourism. The flat was very cute, according to my daughters, and was spacious enough that some could stay up and watch TV without bothering anyone sleeping. Would recommend to anyone visiting Edinburgh!
Opposite Holyrood Park at the bottom of the Royal Mile, we enjoyed a week of brilliant weather, exploring by train, bus and tour each day and returning to our quiet, relaxing apartment each evening. All we needed was provided and the lift and en suite main bedroom were a bonus. Very comfortable beds and bedding. A private parking space if you need it. Vacation Rentals Scotland provide an excellent booking service and their customer care and follow up processes show great attention to detail - they are an asset to Scotland. I would recommend Scotline Tours for their 1-day trips - especially the 12 hour Highland Tour to Glencoe, Loch Ness, etc. - worth every penny and brilliant guides.
