Royal Mile Mansions

Reviewed October 19, 2011

This apartment is perfect. Graeme actually found us pulling our luggage up The hill from the bus stop. The location is perfect for walking to the Castle or to the Palace. Everything worked great. There were even umbrellas for the day it rained.
One hint, bring a wash puff and bath soap. Shampoo is there, detergent and dishwasher liquid is there, but no bath soap. Minor compared to everything else.
My only regret is we could not have stayed longer.
Eat at the little Italian restaurant on the corner. They actually made me Rosetta with salmon which was NOT on the menu and they have a great lemon sorbet.

Room Tip: We combined a business trip with several days holiday. Three days on Edinburgh is NOT enough.

The apt is large and in a great location. If you prefer having a place to yourself and being able to cook, etc, it's very well equipped. It was quiet and comfortable. We bought groceries and cooked two dinners there (also made breakfast each morning). I did have some trouble figuring out the stove (never could figure out the oven) and the washer/dryer is super slow, as others have mentioned. There were a few minor flaws: apt was alittle chilly-there's no coverings over the windows in the main room, (the space heater helped), the toilet seat was loose and the shower leaked (had to put a towel on the floor), but overall the place was relaxing. We didn't have a car, so had to hike uphill in the pouring rain with our luggage (don't go up the stairs)! We had alittle trouble finding it. Endinburgh is a beautiful city with lots to see and do and the Royal Mile Mansion Apt is in a super location to see it!

Thank-you for taking the time to review the apartment. I just wanted to come back to you on some of the points that you have raised. Firstly, the toilet seat has been replaced and is 100% secure again. I also note your comments about the shower – this has now been completely re-sealed which prevents any leaking from taking place. I’m sorry to learn that you found the appliances difficult to operate, as I was under the impression that you were happy with the instructions and demonstration I provided when you arrived (and also during your stay) – however, I do take your feedback on board and will look at ways to try and simplify things further for future guests. Again, thank-you for your comments – it is important to us that we are continuing to provide an excellent service to all of our guests.

Had a lovely 4 night stay at the apartment, I would highly recommend this apartment to anybody travelling to Edinburgh. Perfectly located and luxurious too. Graeme was helpful from the minute we booked right until the end of our stay.

We stayed at the Royal Mile Mansions for 2 nights, our apartment was lovely and the location excellent. I was a little bit worried as it is so central maybe there would be a lot of noise but I never heard a thing. Graeme is a pleasure to deal with and even let us keep the apartment until we were due to leave for the airport. My only regret is that our stay wasn't for longer. Thank goodness for trip advisor otherwise we may have missed this little gem

We (wife, 4 year old daughter, and I) stayed at RMM in July 2011. The apartment has tasteful, contemporary design. The kitchen and bathroom in particular are very nice. Wi-fi worked well.. Only fault with the apartment was that there are no views to speak of. Neverthless, it is still a bright, cheerful apartment with big windows.

The location is on the Royal Mile, right next to the North Bridge. When we drove in, our taxi driver said..."this is as central as it gets". He was absolutely right... all major attractions were just a short walk away.

Graeme was very accessible and everything was as promised. My wife had a minor dental emergency on our last day in Edinburgh and when I asked Graeme for advice, he immediately set us up with the right medical facility (he even knew one of the staff there) so we had no trouble. On the last day, he gave us the flexibility to check out late because he had no guests scheduled to move in.

Overall, this is an excellent base to explore Edinburgh from and I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.
