“Great stay ”
Reviewed April 8, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Stayed for the second time in a year with Edinburgh self catering , this apartment for the first time .
The apartment is as central as it gets for the historical centre of the city perfect for eateries and pubs . It's quiet minimal street noise , but it is up a few flights of stairs .
Very clean tidy and well appointed .
Would not hesitate to recommend.

“Great location is great”
Reviewed December 26, 2016 for a stay in December 2016

The apartment is right in the center of Edinburgh, you can see the Cathedral from the window and there are lots of shops and places to go have breakfast really close to the house. The apartment is very comfortable and is perfect for 4 person (as we were). The bathroom and the kitchen are easy to use and the whole house is very clean. The chimney is the lovely and the whole flat is very warm.
I really recommend St Giles apartment.

“Great Location.”
Reviewed December 12, 2016 for a stay in December 2016

Flat situated looking onto St Giles Cathedral on the Royal Mile so very central to everything. Great communications with Dave who kept us up to date with information prior to our arrival. Upon arriving we were shown round flat which was clean and tidy. No complaints about the flat and we would have no hesitation in re-booking should we visit Edinburgh again.

“Terrific corner apartment”
Reviewed October 30, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

The location can't be beat and the apartment was exactly as described. We would definitely stay there again. One caution: there is no elevator and it is three flights up.

“Fantastic Flat in Fantastic Location”
Reviewed October 17, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

I used to live in Edinburgh so I knew the location of the apartment was fantastic before we had even seen the place. I was concerned it might be a bit loud, but the flat has extra glazed reinforcements on the window so it was quieter. It doesn't block out the sound completely on a Friday and Saturday night, but it's good enough. It would be hard to get away with no noise on the Royal Mile. It is great value for the location, especially considering that you would pay at least three times the price if you stayed in any of the hotels on the Royal Mile. The lounge is a beautiful spacious room and it's a decent sized apartment for two people. I loved being high up above the street, but if you aren't a fan of stairs, then this isn't the apartment for you.

Thank you for finding the time to leave a review for the St Giles apt. It is always a pleasure to know that it played it's part in giving a guest a successful trip to Edinburgh. The stairs do require a little effort but the rewards are more than worth it when you see the astounding views from the four lounge windows. It also saves you time by not having to go to the gym.

“Edinburgh is wonderful, St,Giles appartment made it even better!”
Reviewed October 3, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

A really lovely stay, your manager Dave Stewart was extremely efficient in sorting a minor problem with the bathroom lighting, and always available via, phone, text or email for any queries, which was very reassuring. The property was very clean and well stocked, I cannot think of anything that could be added regarding kitchen equipment. A nice touch was the amount of good quality towels available for guests, very generous indeed. The location was fantastic, views up and down the Royal Mile were wonderful. Windows sound proofed, so even though we enjoyed people watching and things going on till' all hours, we were never disturbed by noise at all. We will be back hopefully.

“Best location apartment in Edinburgh”
Reviewed July 7, 2016 for a stay in June 2016
1
person found this review helpful

Stayed here before & loved it again. View from living room windows of royal mile is wonderful. You see St. Giles cathedral and the cobblestone street and the old parliament building. It's a skinny street so traffic is minor & sometimes they close it down for pedestrians only out front so that gives it a homey feel. When you walk down the stairs & outside you are already in the middle of town where everything's happening. Lots of shopping & restaurants are out the door. History is everywhere. The windows are great at keeping the noise out, the bedroom is light & airy with a comfy bed, living room is pleasant and great for people watching on the street below. Newer kitchen & bathroom. Wood floors in bedroom & living room. Much more space than a hotel room for less money. The company was good to work with on reservation & keys etc. No lift but we didn't mind walking up for such a great location! We loved it again.
